FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY PORTRAITS
A FINE-ARTS LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE
FINE ART LIFESTYLE PORTRAITS IN ALBEMARLE NC AND SURROUNDING AREAS
Welcome to the Fine Art Photography Experience.
It's very likely that you have a photography company hired to take portraits of the children attending your school. As a photographer, I fully understand the importance of capturing this time. Parents are investing in these images to have and gift to family and friends; however, I am also aware that these portrait experiences have not evolved much over the years. My goal here is to provide a custom, personalized portrait photography experience that parents want to say YES to. These are portraits they are going to love, paired with an experience that lets their child/ren's personalities shine. That is the Jennifer Ann Photography experience.
My services are designed to be personal and professional while capturing true artistic images.
My intent is to capture the spirit of the child/ren in front of the camera. I will never force a smile--instead, I will offer suggested poses or faces. I prefer to provide a quick, comfortable, and fun experience for the child/ren where they can feel relaxed and be themselves. Simply put--it's all about capturing the children, authentically, on that day. The results are genuine and timeless portraits that are far from the traditional school photos you may have become accustomed to.

WHAT SERVICES DO YOU OFFER?
Aside from picture day, this is a completely *online experience. Once images are edited and ready for viewing, I will email a link to a password-protected online gallery to your school and parents/guardians to view their child/ren's watermarked photos. This is also where orders will be placed if the parent/guardian is interested. Galleries are set up according to grade/room/age-- whatever grouping makes the most sense for your school. Each child will have 2-5 images presented in both color and black and white. The number of images provided is completely dependent on the child. Some are more comfortable in front of the camera than others. And that’s ok. Again, it is all about capturing the child/ren as they are in that moment.
Each family may choose the photos they want to be printed as opposed to having an image selected for them. Within the gallery, I provide product choices that include items such as prints, print collections, canvas gallery wraps, and digital file downloads. A detailed PDF outlining ordering procedures + photography day preparation will be provided for you to be distributed to families prior to photo day.
A few other things:
Digital images + print orders are placed online, directly from the gallery.
Any prints ordered will be shipped from the print lab to the purchaser which means shipping costs can incur. If your school prefers having prints delivered on-site, please let me know and we can discuss what works best.
Digital file purchases will be available for immediate downloading.
Galleries are open for 2 weeks to make print purchases & digital file download purchases.
If there is a child/ren that need a private gallery for legal reasons, please indicate this on the class roster by highlighting the child/rens name/s. A private, individual gallery will be emailed to that family.
I provide all the equipment and personnel needed for photo day.
I provide the school with all the high-resolution digital files to use for yearbooks, websites, school advertising, school IDs--however, the school wishes to use the images.
All personnel receive 50% off prints, collections & digital downloads.
What I need from you:
A roster of each classroom with a valid email address for each child/ren's parent/guardian. Images will be uploaded to an online gallery for viewing watermarked images and ordering. A link to the gallery will be emailed to the school and the email on file of each child.
Preferably, I will start with the youngest classroom and photograph children in order of the roster provided. I ask that the classroom teacher have them lined up and sent to me in that order. Images will be named using the child's first name, grade/age, and file number
On the roster, please mark out anyone that is absent or choosing not to have their photo taken.
Please highlight anyone that will/should be placed in a private gallery.
Any questions from parents and families about ordering and products should be directed to me.
I am happy to discuss custom services that fit your school's unique needs:
*Delivery of prints to school to avoid shipping costs, etc
WHAT AGES ARE THE STUDENTS THAT YOU ACCOMMODATE?
I work with kids from preschool to middle school (ages: 2-14). Children under 2 should be able to sit on a stool unassisted and/or stand-alone.
ARE THESE IMAGES EXPENSIVE?
Professional photography can be an investment. For my Fine Art Portrait Photography services, I have competitive rates to make images affordable while upholding the same professional quality I offer with my other photo printing services. The best part—nothing is due upfront with no minimum order requirement. All profit is made from ordering. I offer a variety of collections and individual products to fit your needs.

WHAT TIME OF YEAR DO YOU CONDUCT THESE FINE ART SCHOOL PHOTO SHOOTS?
These fine are portrait sessions are great for Spring & Fall, but I work with each school to schedule shoots any time during the academic year.
