The new school year is here! I am looking forward to working with your sweet children this fall.
Rebecca Hellyer Photography will be on-site on Tuesday, October 18th for school portraits.
Portraits will be uploaded to my secure site by Friday, November 4th for viewing and ordering.
Retake day will be Monday, November 7th.
You may contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
You may be used to cheesy photos taken on a green screen with a crazy background added afterwards...
You may be used to your child looking stiff and uncomfortable...
You may be used to forced smiles...
My school portraits are simple, modern, timeless.
The focus is on your sweet child and I aim to capture just them...their shyness, their silliness, their strength, their joy.
All portraits are taken against a solid backdrop. They are shot artistically close, from the shoulders up, so the focus is squarely on your child's face and their emotions. I suggest children wear bright colors (not neon), and have details like collars, ties, ruffles, etc around the shoulders. Steer clear of athletic wear, clothes with large logos, or very dark colors.
For this reason, no two galleries will be the same. I aim to provide 3-5 images of each child, in both color and black & white. Some children are very shy and slow to warm up, so they may have only 3 images. Other children are quick to engage and may offer a wide variety of facial expressions, so their galleries may be larger.
Please trust me when I say that the images you receive are the best, and most varied images that I have of your child. I don't keep any of the best ones for myself!
By Friday, November 4th you will receive a printed flyer with the password to access your child's gallery. This site will be updated with a link to the portrait galleries which will take you directly to my secure ordering site. You will use your email address and the password you were given to log-in to view your child's gallery. All ordering is done online, and any questions or concerns can be directed to me.
You may also order beautiful wall art such as enlargements and canvases directly through the site. You will have 7 days to place your order.
Digital orders will be sent to your email address immediately. Print orders will be delivered to your school for distribution within 2 weeks of the ordering deadline.
