Fine Art School Portraits


Fine Art School Photography brings high end portraiture to the school. Photo shoots includes a fun personalized experience for students and parents. I work quickly to create a true connection with each student. This only takes a  minutes or two per child, but provides families with the most amazing images that really capture the spirit of their child. Fine art school portraits have a feeling, not just a look, of being authentic with genuine emotions.

Pectolite Fine art school photography is free of props, busy backgrounds, awkward poses and fake smiles. Children have naturally great expressions even when not smiling. I provide fun verbal prompts to encourage each child's natural expression. My style is modern, minimal and most of all rewarding.



i  will provide a high-end, professional experience for your  school and your families. Other than picture day, the entire process is done completely online. i provide instructional email templates to the school prior to picture day.  These emails detail what parents should expect and how the online ordering process will work. A link to FAQs on my website and email contact information is always included. I handle all questions from parents and families regarding their online galleries, products offered and ordering process. I even provide a reminder email so that parents don't forget the big day.

As a part of this one-of-a-kind school portrait experience, families will be linked to a password-protected online ordering gallery for the school. Galleries are created according to grade and teacher. Each child will be provided with 3 or more images and each image will have a color and black white version.


  • I provide superior customer service for the school and your families.

  • I provide all equipment for photo day; all I need is a room with a good window or an open shade location outdoors.

  • I respond to all emails within 24 hours or less.

  • I provide affordable portrait pricing. See price list here.

  • Photo Galleries are available online for viewing within 4 weeks of picture day.

  • Prints are ordered online and delivered to the school for distribution to the families. Digital images are available for download immediately upon purchase.

  • I provide the school with full-resolution images to use in yearbooks, school materials, school IDs, or any other way they'd like to use the photos.



ARE FINE ART SCHOOL PORTRAITS EXPENSIVE? Even though my fine art school portrait service is high end, my prices are not. I have competitive rates with nothing due up front. Parents are not forced to buy sight unseen! They order the images they love and have chosen for themselves.

HOW MANY STUDENTS CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE? I service any size schools or daycares including homeschool groups.

 WHAT AGES DOES THIS WORK FOR BEST? I have worked with children between the ages of 18 months to 18 years old. Because fine art school portraits are about capturing genuine portraits of each child, there is not an age group that is too young or too old for this one-of-a-kind portrait style.

WHAT TIME OF YEAR DO YOU TAKE SCHOOL PORTRAITS? Pectolite Photography is here to serve the schools and their families. You pick the time of year that works best for your school and together we will collaborate to schedule a successful, rewarding school portrait day for your school and the families you love.




My research shows that big box companies are falling down in several ways. But there is one major area above all. CUSTOMER SERVICE. Slow response times, inaccurate (sometimes empty) packages, and extended wait times for prints have parents wishing for a better portrait solution.

Parents rave about the outstanding image results. They enjoy the benefit of only ordering images that they adore. Families are very pleased with the dynamic offering of print, digital and canvas options. All at truly comparable prices to what they have previously received from more traditional school portrait businesses.

For me, it is unquestionable that schools are the core of Pectolite Photography, LLC. For every school that I serve, I am committed to providing the best experience for them and their families. I know that serving as the photographer for your school or daycare  is a privilege as you have many options when it comes to  school portraits. I honor that trust with unmatched quality, commitment and consistency.
