Lifestyle School Portraits | Fun, Genuine, and Modern School Pictures

Fun, Genuine, and Modern School Pictures

Let’s put the fun back into school photography! We take the difficulties out of school picture day and put the FUN back in. Out with the old paper order forms and payment collections. By choosing us, your families will have easy online ordering, online payment collections (no paper/no cash!), and multiple images to choose from.

We serve Preschools, K-12, Private Schools, Montessori Schools, and Homeschool Groups. Have a unique group of students you would like to have photographed? Those too! We work with directors, teachers, administrative staff, and PTA members or anyone else you choose to ensure the best for your school picture day. We can accommodate any size of school and have worked with children of all ages and developmental stages.

You receive everything you need for ID cards, Infinite Campus, school materials, yearbooks, or anything else you would like to use them for, and provide complimentary packages for teachers. Because teachers deserve the best…and more!

Safety is our top priority! Your school gallery is hosted on a private, password protected proofing site.


Why Is Everyone Choosing Lifestyle School Portraits?

Lifestyle School Portraits are a modern approach to school photos. No more cheesy smiles with strange backgrounds. Instead of forcing a cheesy grin, the children will be encouraged to be themselves and will never be forced to smile. No awkward poses or faces, just the authentic child, on the day. The results are genuine and timeless portraits that are far from the traditional photos we have become accustomed to with bright flashes and unflattering, busy backgrounds. I provide a light and fun experience for your students and take pride in providing an environment where the kids can relax and be themselves, naturally.

School Fundraising - Giving Back Program

We believe in education and know that our future is taught by the dedicated and selfless teachers and professionals that serve our kids each and every day. We can’t thank you enough for everything you do in the classroom to help our kids succeed. We give 10% of our profits back to your school for fundraising. We believe in education and that’s why it’s important to give back to our schools!

Photos + Ordering

No fumbling around with order forms and collecting payments. Our easy online ordering process makes it simple for parents to order their child’s school photo. And, parents actually get to see what they want to order instead of having a pose chosen for them. Each child’s gallery comes with 3-5 images both in color and black and white.

Photo Day

Photo day with us is FUN! I provide a light and fun experience for your students and take pride in capturing the essence of each child. We can provide an expert assistant or can work with parent volunteers depending on the size of the school. My approach to capturing each child would be described as lifestyle, engaging with them to bring out their true personality. The end results are timeless photos, not awkward interactions with a stranger.
