Authentic School Portraits

Emily Ann Fine Art School Photography Seattle Kids on Black BackgroundWhat is Fine Art Portraits for School?

This is my approach to providing a new and improved school portrait experience for families! Unlike the traditional large corporations that have busy backgrounds and cheesy smiles, my portraits are authentic, timeless, and classic.

How does this work?

After spending 1-2 minutes with each child, and capturing anywhere from 3-5 authentic portraits, each class is provided with their own password protected online gallery. Families actually get to pick their favorite pose/expression of their child or they have the option to buy all of them! Each image is presented in both color and black & white. I also provide boutique products such as gallery-wrapped canvases, metal prints, and digital prints for future printing.

I am interested in setting this up for my school – what else do I need to know?

Prints are ordered online and delivered directly to the school for distribution.

I provide all of the equipment and assistants needed for photo day.

I provide the school with all high resolution digital files to use for yearbooks, website, school advertising, school ID’s, etc.

Complimentary staff photos and discounted packages.

This all sounds great but it sounds really expensive!?

My rates are very competitive with the other traditional school photography companies. Nothing is due up front as all orders are done online and AFTER families see the images. I offer discounted collections as well as single products available to fit every families’ budget. I also donate 10% of all gross sales to the schools I photograph!

And if you are a school interested in learning more, scheduling an in-person visit, or just can’t wait to get on my schedule, please email me! I only take on 4-6 schools a year in order to provide the absolute best customer service! | 425.772.5901
