How it works

School photos with Apollo & Ivy are different from the old standard school pics. No marbled backgrounds, props, or flashbulbs here!

Fine art school photos keep the focus on your child’s unique personality. I spend time with them, make them smile and laugh, then capture their expressions, from pensive to sweet to silly.

Your next steps

  1. Fill out the form at the bottom of this page to register your child for picture day. You can request sibling photos, provide a password for me to use on your child’s gallery, join my mailing list, and accept/decline the model release.
  2. You’ll receive a link to a password-protected gallery within 3 weeks of picture day containing the best images of your child, usually 4–6 photos, but sometimes more if they were really turning on the cuteness!
  3. Choose from the packages described below or order a la carte prints, canvases, and digital downloads. There’s no obligation to buy.

What to wear

Your child’s photos will be taken against a black backdrop, so keep that in mind when choosing clothing.

I recommend:

  • Light-colored tops in solid colors or subtle prints. Consider colors that make your child’s eye color pop!
  • Small bows (less than 4″ wide), headbands or barrettes at the side of the head.
  • Details at the sleeves, neck, and collar.
  • Avoid:
      • Large amounts of black, navy, and other dark colors
      • Ultrabright and neon colors
      • Small thin stripes or small checkered prints
      • Logos, large graphics, or writing
  • Consider allowing your child to pick a favorite outfit within these parameters to capture even more of their personality!
