School photo day is free for schools! I provide all the resources needed for parents in preparation and delivery. Parents are also never required to pay for the photos, only the images they love, the way they love them. Digital and print options are available with contactless ordering online.  

No cost to schools

School photos are getting an upgrade

Sessions take place outdoors with natural light. We keep it simple and you get timeless, authentic photos of your kids.
