How Does This All Work?

Our goal is to deliver a tailored, boutique experience to families with students attending schools that have selected Light & Grace Photography for your school photography needs.

Unlike large, corporate photography enterprises, we exclusively collaborate with a limited number of schools and daycare centers, enabling us to offer exceptional customer service and create artistic images. This allows our service to be characterized by a personal and professional touch.

The crux of our service is to genuienly capture the personality of each child in front of our camera lens. We never force smiles or resort to awkward poses or expressions. Instead, we strive to present the authentic child as they are on that specific day. The result is a collection of authentic and timeless portraits that diverge from the traditional, clichéd photos typically associated with bright flashes and unflattering, busy backgrounds. We provide a light-hearted and enjoyable experience for your children, taking pride in fostering an environment where they can relax and be their natural selves.

We operate exclusively online, offering families access to password-protected ordering galleries organized by grade, homeroom, or other school-specific groupings. Each child receives 2-5 color and black-and-white images, and families have the freedom to choose their preferred photos for printing. A comprehensive PDF guide outlining the ordering process and photo day preparation is provided to each school for distribution to families in advance.

Prints are ordered online and delivered to the school within 2-3 weeks of picture day. We supply all necessary equipment and personnel for a smooth photo day experience.

Our pricing is highly competitive, with no upfront costs to the schools; all revenue is generated from orders placed. We provide a range of collection options and a-la-carte products to cater to individual preferences. You can inquire to receive an update to date price list.

Additionally, we proudly contribute 5% of our gross profits to the schools we photograph as a part of our commitment to support education. We’d love to collaborate with schools to participate in funding raising events.

It depends on the number of kids in the school. Each child should take a couple of minutes only. We will circle back to kids who didn’t cooperate well the first time at the end of the session.

I have been a professional newborn and family photographer for three years who has photographed hundreds of children. I am a member of the Professional Photographers Association. My business is fully licensed and insured. Plus, I am a mother of two, a 5-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl!

Any classroom with good lighting would work. I also bring my own studio lighting equipment to accommodate less desirable lighting conditions.

Once you decided to work with us, we’ll schedule a tour day to visit the location and discuss the process tailored to your school’s needs.

Before picture day, we’ll send the school information to share a PDF prep guide with parents to help them prepare.

Our photo sessions are efficient yet accommodating, allowing extra time for children who may need it. We can also capture class and staff photos during this time, with details discussed during our in-person meeting.

Within two weeks, we’ll provide access to the school gallery, complete with ordering instructions, deadlines, and FAQs.

We handle all the equipment and materials for picture day, offering flexibility for scheduling sessions in either the fall or spring, depending on what suits your school best.

In addition to digital images, we provide a wide range of prints and products to suit your preferences. We offer boutique product options like canvas gallery wraps and fine art prints and albums to families.

We collaborate with each school to arrange photo sessions at any point throughout the academic year including fall, spring and summer as needed.

Since this is done indoors, typically there is no need to reschedule. However, if the session is booked in advance and the school needs to reschedule for reasonable causes, we’re happy to reschedule at no additional cost.

If you’re a school interested in scheduling picture days, please feel free to get in touch with me through this contact form below or via email at

For parents wishing to have their children photographed at their school, you have a couple of options. You can reach out to me directly, providing information about your child’s school, and I will approach them. Alternatively, you can inform the school about my services, share my website with them, and express your desire for a unique experience for your child’s school pictures.

Parents can also keep an eye out for special Fine Art Portrait events, where multiple children can be photographed simultaneously. To be among the first to hear about upcoming events, sign up for our newsletter!
