Boutique School Portraits | Photographer

BOUTIQUE SCHOOL PORTRAITS | PHOTOGRAPHER

Co. Wicklow & Co. Dublin

After experiencing different styles of school photography with our own children over the years which were similar to what we had taken in the 70’s we decided to take matters into our own hands! We discovered this wonderful new concept of Boutique School Portraits which enables us to finally bring school photography into the 21st Century.

WHAT IS BOUTIQUE SCHOOL PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY?

Boutique School Photography allows us as photographers to capture the essence of the children we photograph which is a huge passion of ours. No awkward poses or faces just the real, raw and authentic child on the day. We never force a smile. The experience for both the children and ourselves, is relaxed and fun as we provide an environment where they can be themselves, just the way they are naturally.

We offer a personal and professional service. Unlike large, corporate photography operations, we only take on a few, select schools so that we can provide superior customer service and artistic images.

SERVICES

WHAT SERVICES DO YOU OFFER?

We operate completely online freeing up the school from any obligations to handle payment. Families are linked to password-protected online ordering galleries. Each child will be provided 2-5 images, presented in both colour and black and white. The family may choose the photos they want printed, as opposed to having a pose chosen for them. We also provide the option of boutique product choices such as bespoke framing and hi-resolution 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.

Prints are ordered online by parents and delivered directly to the school. We provide all equipment and personnel needed for photo day. We provide the school with all high resolution digital files to use for yearbooks, website, school advertising, or however the school wishes to use the images. We handle any questions from parents and families about ordering and products. We also take staff photos and we are willing to work with schools to provide custom services that fit your unique needs.

WHAT IS THE COST? WHO IS THIS FOR?

ARE THESE IMAGES EXPENSIVE?

We have competitive rates and no payments are due up front. There is no cost to the school. We offer a variety of collections and a-la-carte products to fit everyone’s needs.

We are also willing to work with each individual school to provide any additional services or products that they may require.

 

IS THIS SERVICE FOR SCHOOLS ONLY?

We provide this same service for private groups with great success. Ballet schools, gymnastic clubs, sports, musical theatre – the list goes on!  Bronwyn danced throughout her childhood but doesn’t have even one picture of herself doing what was such an important part of her life. We want children to have pictures of themselves doing whatever it is they love to do – pictures they can show their children and grandchildren, perhaps inspiring the next generation of ballet dancers and footballers!
