Modern School Portraits | DMV School Photographer


We can never have enough photos of our children but let’s face it; school portraits aren’t always our first choice when it comes to what to hang up around the house.

If you’re growing a little tired of the usual school photo formula year after year, why not consider taking some professional headshots instead? Below is what we offer our little clients.

The Backdrop

Your child’s school photos are usually shot in front of a generic, sometimes tacky, background. These backgrounds tend to be distracting and move the focus off your child completely.  

We prefer photographing children in front of a white, black, or even a natural outdoors backdrop. This allows us to keep the focus solely on your child and their winning personality.

Posing and Smiling

When it’s time to take school photos, kids are called up one at a time, placed in a standard pose and told to smile in front of a complete stranger before being rushed out the door again.

We are able to take the time to make your child feel more comfortable in front of the camera and get them talking and laughing, which results in a natural expression and smile.  Because of this, we can usually offer a variety of expressions so that you walk away with more memorable images of your children.

The End Result

When you receive your child’s school photos you usually get one or two standard photos in various sizes. Sometimes, the pose is chosen for you!

Not only do we provide a variety of images of your child,  but you can walk away with ALL of your favorite images. In addition to prints, we also offer images printed on canvas. 

We offer parents a more custom and candid option for school portraits than your average school portrait provider. We pride ourselves on capturing a photograph that accentuates each child’s individual personality.
We never force a smile and simply aim to capture the essence of the children with no awkward poses. The results are genuine and timeless portraits. We provide a light and fun experience for your children and take pride in providing an environment where the kids can relax and be themselves, naturally. If you’re looking for something a little more special to remember your child’s school years by, reach out to us! Let’s schedule your child’s session or reserve your school, daycare, or homeschool portrait day!
