Love Your School Portraits | Fine Art School Portraiture {Kat Oswald Photography}

Love Your School Portraits!

Most of us can't say we "love" any of our school portraits....  Our Fine Art School Portrait Division is here to change that for your children...  

It's time to love your child's school portraits!

School Portrait Photos for Albuquerque Schools

Do you remember those awful school portraits you got when you were younger?  (I still cringe thinking of some of my middle school and even high school years...). You walked in, sad down, the flash went off, and you were sent on your way, slightly taken back by how fast it all happened.  A week later, excitement grew as you saw portrait proofs being passed out, only to be disappointed when you saw the cheesy background, fake smile, and deer-in-the-headlights look on your face.  

Your school portrait experience didn't have to be like that.  Your parents bought your portraits because they "had" to, not because they loved them.  They were sometimes passed out to family, then sat in a drawer for years as they were forgotten (or hidden).

It doesn't have to be like that for your school and for your child.  What if your school's portraits were something you looked forward to each year?  What if they captured true emotion and the spirit of your child?  What if the cheesy backgrounds stayed in the past?  What if you were able to choose from multiple poses, and absolutely loved the portraits of your child?  By using a simple dark background, taking time to get each child to laugh, and by having a passion for capturing authentic portraits - you can now have beautiful picture day portraits of your child.  

Why School Photography Is Important To Schools

A child's school portrait is the perfect opportunity to shine a light on how much you value your students and their families by giving them a portrait they will love!  Imagine having parents post their child's school portraits on social media bragging about how their school (your school!) provides such beautiful portraits.  Plus, the Kat Oswald Photography School Portrait Division can be used as a school fundraiser.  Often times 65% - 85% of parents purchase school portraits, which ends up being a very simple, successful, and stress-free fundraiser!

No "Say Cheese" Here - Just Fun & Beauty

Our School Portrait Division focuses on producing authentic portraits of each child, a simple online ordering and viewing gallery for parents, and minimum interruption for schools.  We take our time with each child, asking him/her silly questions as their true personality and beautiful spirit shine through.  The school portrait experience should be fun for everyone.  Parents constantly express how excited (and surprised) they are to receive such beautiful, genuine moments captured and schools love our professionalism.  

Are you ready for a new school portrait experience?  We would love to hear from you!  Contact Kat today to see if your school would be a good fit for our boutique school photography style.  We would love to introduce our Fine Art Portrait Division to your school this year!!  Kat can be reached using the Contact Form.
