School Photography Ellensburg, WA | Modern School Portraits

Simple. Modern. Authentic.

When you see this fun twist to school portraits, I hope the three words listed above come to your mind. Simple. Modern. Authentic. I am so happy to share these with you. With modern school portraits we will never force a smile. What we create is the authentic kid. When you take away the bright flashes and unflattering, busy backgrounds, the results become genuine and timeless. This allows your child to stand out. This also creates a portrait you will feel proud of and want to frame in your home. Let us capture a stunning, yet simple modern photo of your child/students, naturally.

What Services Do You Offer?

Modern School Portraits are a completely online operation. Families are linked to password-protected online ordering galleries. Galleries are set up according to grade, or whatever grouping which makes sense for the school. Each child will be provided 2-3 images, presented in both color and black and white. And guess what, the family may chose the photos they want printed, as opposed to having a pose chosen for them.

My goal is to keep the ordering easy and simple for parents, so I have created 3 affordable packages to choose from. I also provide boutique product choices such as canvas gallery wraps and digital images for future printing and archiving. A detailed email, describing all ordering procedures and shooting day preparation will be provided to each school to be distributed to families prior to photo day.

Why Modern School Portraits?

  • These are classic and timeless photos that only get better over time.
  • Prints are ordered online and delivered directly to the school.
  • I provide all equipment and personnel needed for photo day.
  • I provide the school with high resolution digital files to use for yearbooks, website, school advertising, school ID’s, or however the school wishes to use the images. (I do ask you respect my business and don't hand these digital images over to parents.)
  • I handle any questions from parents and families about ordering and products.

How do I Order My Portraits?

There will be an online store attached to your photo gallery. This is a very convenient way to view your photos, then select what photos you want to order with your package, canvas, etc. You can even order digitals from the store. When I email you or your school the online gallery, I also include a video about the online ordering process.

Are the Images Expensive?

We offer competitive rates and nothing is due up front, all profit is made from ordering. We offer three collections, digital files and canvases to fit you family's needs.

What Time of Year Do You Conduct These Photo Shoots?

We work with each individual school to schedule school sessions anytime during the school year. Fall and spring are the most common times to schedule modern school portraits.
