Hello parents of Saint Clement School,
You are in the right place! I am so excited to offer the Fine Art portraits of your beautiful children just in time for Christmas! I am amazed by how much they change before my camera each year and I hope that you love these images too!
Not only did we take pictures of the entire school (PK3-8th grade) but we also added 16x16 and 16x20 Portrait prints on Fine Art paper that are absolutely stunning! Keep an eye out in the office and hallway as we will plan to hang a few of these gorgeous images. We also added metal and wood ornaments to our offerings for the perfect 2018 Christmas keepsake. You can see the examples of our product offerings here.
This is a school fundraising effort. Therefore, I donate 100% of the proceeds to the school. The minimum purchase price per classroom gallery is $100. I will also gift a portrait voucher that can be used towards a session fee with me in my studio or a Chicago location of your choice to any family that makes a purchase $200 or higher.
I will inform you once your order is available for pickup in the office. If you have any issues with your physical product please reach out directly to me within 14 days of receiving your order. I will work to make sure that you are satisfied.
Please scroll to the bottom to read this post in its entirety. All proofing and ordering are handled online through my secure ordering site. In order to ensure that you receive your prints before Christmas you must place your order by December 15th. If you have questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can follow me on Facebook here and Instagram here, and you can see more of my recent family portrait work here.
If your child is missing from the the galleries, please do reach out to me at email@example.com. Chances are they missed the scheduled session for their classroom or were mistakenly placed in the wrong gallery.
These images are captured in a short time period with your child. These fun, super-mini sessions are arranged with your child's teacher, and usually take less than two minutes with each student. I do my best to capture a variety of expressions and conjure authenticity from your son or daughter during this time. Some children are naturally more comfortable than others when it comes to photographs. Each child in the gallery has multiple proof options in both color and BW. Some have more than others. I do not believe in forcing a child to "perform" just for the sake of capturing "the shot," rather I do my best to work with your children, make them comfortable, and enjoy the time that we have. Please understand that all images are shot with the goal of being "real" - to preserve each child’s personality in that moment. Some laugh, some cry, some remain stoic, some bounce around and giggle...and I attempt to artistically capture all of this. The options included in the gallery of your son or daughter were the best shots we had on file, and we hope that you enjoy each of them.
I hope you love the pictures! Your children are incredible, and I truly loved working with each and every one of them!
