Welcome Parents of Topsail Presbyterian Preschool!
I’m so excited to be photographing your children this spring and offering my boutique school photography to your child’s school! I know you’re going to love these genuine images of your little ones! This page is designed to give you some helpful information to make your photo experience easy and convenient! It’s also where I’ll be posting updates and the access to the galleries once all the photos are edited and ready for you to view! Stay tuned!
What makes this photography unique?
My goal during my short time with your child is not to force a cheesy smile. I’m looking for natural expressions, which will range from serious and pensive to sweet and silly. The solid black background keeps the focus solely on the child’s face and expression.
I will chat and interact with your child during our time together to elicit genuine expressions. For an extra fun time, have your child come prepared with a joke for ME! 🙂
What should my child wear?
These images are shot chest-up against a solid black backdrop. Tops that are light-colored or bright-colored are best. Please avoid hoodies and dark or black tops, tops with large graphics, logos, print, or cartoon characters. And please no neon colors–they reflect poorly on skin. Small details at the sleeves, neck, and collar photograph well for these sessions. You can also think about a top that makes your child’s eye color pop! Consider allowing your child to select a favorite outfit within these parameters to capture even more of their personality!
When can I expect to see the photos?
How does ordering work?
After your receive your online gallery, you will have 7 days to place your order. Everything is viewed, ordered, and paid online, so there are no paper order forms to keep up with. You will have the option to purchase prints, canvases, and digital images with printing rights.
Feel free to share the gallery with family. Grandparents and other relatives may also place orders through the digital gallery!
What is the quality of the prints?
Your photographs will be printed on the highest quality photographic paper and are finished with a lustre coating to protect them from aging, fingerprints and uv exposure.
One last thing . . .
Your child’s privacy is important to me!
I occasionally like to post a sneak peek on social media from my photo day at a particular school or add new kids’ photos to my website and marketing materials. If you would be willing to give me permission to include your child’s photo (never any names) for these purposes, please complete the following release form. Thank you so much!
