Coupon: School Photos

School Photos Dilemma

As a mom myself, school photos are something I dread. Every year I'm practically forced by expectation to have my child take photos that are known for habitually being bad, boring, bringing out forced smiles and having awful backdrops. The school photos also come in packages that force me to buy sizes I don't want.

I wanted a solvent this year so I thought: "Why don't I shoot school photos that are fresh and let children's personalities shine with a modern or traditional school photo twist?" Well that's my mission.

My clients will get a disc to print out their own photos, smiles will be natural and I will provide fun backdrops and accessories that can be chosen to reflect the child's personality.

The price comparison on printing is out of this world when compared to the local school photo service and you can choose the photos you want instead of having one option chosen for you.

Price comparison: Lifetouch, the company that does school photos, offers two 2"x3" and four 1.5"x2.5" photos for $9 as its cheapest package. For $9.99 at Walgreens you can get 20 4"x6" photos, three 5"x7" photos, three 8"x10" and 20 wallet size photos!

Welcome friends, family and future clients! Thanks for checking out my new site/blog.

I'm excited to share my latest photo sessions, discounts and photo inspiration on this site.

A little about me:

I find so much joy in picking up my camera bag and capturing moments to preserve for my family and others.

The last 10 years I have been a photographer for weddings, family portraits, newborns and more. I decided to fully launch my photography business in August 2011  in efforts to chisel away at some medical bills due to my two youngest children being at Primary Children's Hospital for over two weeks in June 2011. I'm excited to help my family financially through something I'm passionate about and am excited to photograph clients now and in the years to come.

My mission is to provide a comfortable, natural and fresh setting for clients with an outcome of crisp, artistic pictures that exude my clients personality all while maintaining affordable pricing.
