How it works

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

After picture day

  • If you pre-register, I’ll email a link to your child’s gallery. LMN will send the gallery link to families.
  • Your child will have their own album of the best photos, usually 4 to 8 images. Each image will be in color and black & white.
  • Place your order right from the online gallery. Choose from prints, canvases, digital downloads, acrylic prints and more. There’s no obligation to buy. 


If you have more than one child at LMN, enter the info for all children in one submission.

Would you like your child's gallery to be password-protected? (If so, I'll email your password when the gallery is live.)

Are you comfortable with me sharing your child's images in my portfolio of work? (Names are never shared.)

I send a monthly email full of good stuff, from rad local businesses and books to podcasts and bug-zapper flyswatters. There's some photography-related stuff in there, too! Can I add you to the email list?

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 add visual interest: suspenders, ruffles, a cute little bow-tie… lots of options!
  • For babies, try to choose tops that don’t darken when they get wet (slobber is inevitable with the littlest ones)!
  • Avoid:
      • Black, navy, dark gray… any dark colors 
      • Ultrabright and neon colors
      • Small thin stripes or tiny checkered prints
      • Logos or shirts with large writing
  • Consider allowing your child to pick a favorite outfit within these parameters to capture even more of their personality!
