FINE ART SCHOOL PORTRAITS IN ALBEMARLE NC
AND SURROUNDING AREAS
Welcome to School Photography, Refined.
I'm Jennifer. A local Lifestyle & Day In The Life photographer. My work is mostly made up of children and families, but my primary focus is on connection, capturing the love, beauty & joy each and every family experiences uniquely. School Photography Refined was born out of wanting to offer an authentic, lifestyle approach to children's school portraits. Something simple, genuine and unique. Photos that families will want to buy and share with family and friends.
My goal here is to provide a custom, refined school photography experience to all families attending the schools that have chosen Jennifer Ann Photography to photograph their students.
My services are designed to be personal and professional. I only take on a few, select schools so that I can focus on providing exceptional customer service while capturing true artistic images.
My intent is to capture the spirit of your children in front of the camera. I will never force a smile or suggest awkward poses or faces. I prefer to provide a quick, comfortable, and fun experience for the children 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.
SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHY, REFINED FAQ
WHAT SERVICES DO YOU OFFER?
Aside from picture day, this is a completely online operation. Once images are edited and ready for viewing, I will share links to password-protected online galleries. 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 as he/she is 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 canvas gallery wraps and/or digital images for future printing. A detailed PDF describing all ordering procedures and shooting day preparation will be provided to each school to be distributed to families prior to photo day.
A few other things:
Prints are ordered online directly from the gallery. Once an order is placed, the print lab will fulfill these orders and they will be mailed directly to the child's home. Any questions or concerns about orders should be directed to me.
I provide all the equipment and personnel needed for photo day. All I need is one window for natural lighting or outdoor space with an overhang (weather permitting).
I provide the school with all the high-resolution digital files to use for their yearbooks, website, school advertising, school IDs, or however, the school wishes to use the images.
Any questions from parents and families about ordering and products should be directed to me.
If requested, I can take staff and class photos depending on the school’s needs.
Additionally, I am happy to discuss custom services that fit your school's unique needs.
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 on their own. My backdrop does extend to the floor so these are not designed for floor sitting.
ARE THESE IMAGES EXPENSIVE?
Professional photography can be an investment. For my School Photography, Refined 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.

As a way of giving back, I will come back, at a scheduled date, and document a day-in-the-life (DILT) at your school! Images are yours to use freely for your website, advertising, and/or social media needs :)
WHAT TIME OF YEAR DO YOU CONDUCT THESE FINE ART SCHOOL PHOTO SHOOTS?
I work with each school to schedule shoots any time during the academic year.
I AM NOW BOOKING SCHOOLS FOR FALL 2020!
