Kat Oswald is a professional Fine Art School Portrait Photographer offering Boutique School Photography Services to select schools in the greater Albuquerque area.   


School portraits can be authentic, custom and timeless.  It is my vision to provide schools with images that are powerful, meaningful and desired by parents.

Hello there!  I'm Kat, owner & lead photographer at Kat Oswald Photography.  I have been offering Fine Art School Portraiture to select schools in Albuquerque for 4 years. It is my belief that school portraits should be genuine, honest, and timeless - which is why I do things differently.  The results are a fun experience for the children & beautiful fine art portraits worthy of sharing and displaying on your walls.  I look forward to serving you.


For Parents:

My Fine Art School Portrait Program provides a beautiful, custom alternative to traditional school portraits. Imagine a stunning fine art image of your child, that you just have to frame and display in your home, taken at school!  All kiddos are photographed with no obligation to purchase.  YOU choose from at least 2-5 images from a private, password-protected online gallery and order the prints, canvases, and/or digital files that YOU love best.  

I strive to connect with your kiddos, so as to get those natural, unique expressions that we all love.  In just the few short minutes I have with each child, I do my best to make them feel comfortable and create a beautiful fine art portrait that you and your family will cherish for years to come.  The end results are unfiltered, expressive moments of childhood where each child is allowed to contemplate, smile, laugh, make a funny face, or just be themselves.  These portraits will capture each child's character in a natural and beautiful way.

If you are interested in introducing fine art portraits to your school, please contact me.  I am happy to chat with you and would love to speak with your school administrator. Don't worry, if your school hasn't commissioned me at this time, you can schedule a session for your child and/or homeschool group in my studio or at a beautiful outdoor location!  Please contact me for details by emailing or by using the contact form below.


My Fine Art School Portrait Program is now available for Homeschool Groups!  Portraits can be taken at a local park or at the studio.  Because homeschool groups are so much smaller, 5-10 minutes is allotted for each child so there is time for several poses.  Options to add sibling photos and group/class photos are also available at no additional cost.  There is a requirement of at least 25 students to book this service.  This affordable, custom portrait experience is perfect for homeschool groups.  Please contact me for details and requirements by emailing or by using the contact form below.


My Fine Art School Portrait Program is a custom boutique experience designed to cater to both the families and staff.  My service is personal and professional.  I only take a select number of schools each year so I can provide superior customer service, a fast turnaround, and beautiful artistic images.  I currently photograph a variety of ages and schools ranging from grades Pre-K through 12, with anywhere from 75 to 500 students.  There is no obligation for parents to participate, no minimum order requirements, and no cost to the school.  Portraits are taken at your school, at your convenience, using natural light and a black backdrop and/or a natural setting.  

My boutique products for parents include print packages and a-la-carte items, heirloom quality canvas gallery wraps, and digital files - all at competitive prices and personalized service.  Services available for schools and administrators include ID cards, yearbook CD's, proof books, custom albums, staff headshots and more.  Orders and viewing galleries are all online in password protected galleries - teachers don't need to worry about taking payments or tracking orders and parents can view private galleries at their convenience.  If parents prefer, they may also make an appointment and I am happy to meet them in my studio to go over their child's gallery and place an order in person.

If you would like more information about how my unique, customized services will benefit your school, please contact me.  It would be a pleasure to stop by your office to discuss my Fine Art Portraiture Program and go over all the details.  I also have a FAQ page for school directors & principals that I would love to share with you.  Please email me at or by using the contact form below
