In the last five years, I have professionally taken class photos and individual students. I work with children ages 2 1/2 and older. Yes, toddlers, too! Because I have been a preschool teacher, I have WAYS to make an entire class do what needs to be done to take a class picture. Yes, even with 2 1/2 year olds! There is a special technique I use (and it isn’t tossing a teddy bear in the air, though I can do that, too), but it’s more of a technique that I discovered that I have picked up as a preschool teacher that works for ALL of the younger kids to smile for the camera. This means that the teachers can relax and look their best as they smile their best for the camera, while I do the rest! So, if you’re looking for a photographer who has skills with very young children, you have come to the right place.
A little side note about publishing photos: this is the only section where I will NOT display any photos of the children unless the parents have agreed to it. There will be a contract to be signed by the parents, school, and myself. If the parents allow me to publish their children’s photos, I will use the individual portraits and not the class photos. If you would like to see a sample of any of my works, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can schedule a meet up so you would be able to see my sample work then. I do not send samples through email or the internet.
