Fine Art School Portraits at Little Inspirations

Thursday, October 4th, 2018

A boutique photography experience that brings out the unique beauty in each child.

I am excited to have the opportunity to provide your school with fine art school portraits. My goal is to provide a  more personal experience to all children and families at Little Inspirations. 

What is a fine art school portrait?
Fine Art School Portraits are a modern approach to school photos. No more forced smiles with awkward backgrounds. The background will be neutral and the photos will be simple and classic. Instead of a cheesy grin, the children will be encouraged to be themselves and show their natural expressions.

When will Erielle Bakkum Photography will be at Little Inspirations?
Thursday, October 4th, from 8:30 - 12:00 pm.
All children will be photographed, unless you express otherwise.

What should my child wear? 
Photos turn out the best if you can avoid neon clothing, or clothing with brand name photos on them (The Gap, etc.) All photos are taken from the shoulders up, so you don’t need to worry about cute pants or shoes (although I will be taking class photos). Please contact me if you have any questions about wardrobe. Hats are FUN and TOTALLY ALLOWED for a few of the photos! 

Are siblings welcome?
Siblings are welcome! I will photograph siblings enrolled at Little Inspirations, as well as siblings who do not attend Little Inspirations. Please sign up by Monday, October 1 if you would like sibling photos taken (the form can be obtained from the office and returned to the office.) Photos with siblings not at Little Inspirations will be taken between 8:30 - 9:30.

How will I order photos?
Within a few weeks of your child’s photo day, you will be e-mailed the link to a class proofing gallery. There will be 2-6 images of your child, depending upon how much your child loved being photographed.  :)  
Here's the best part: You get to choose which photo to print! And if you love ALL the photos in the gallery, you will have the option to purchase them all. You will be able to order prints, canvas wraps, and digital files directly from the viewing gallery. The ordering process is simple and secure. 
The gallery will be live for seven(7) days. ALL ORDERS MUST BE PLACED IN THAT SEVEN DAY PERIOD.

Once orders have been placed, your photos and other products will be delivered to your school.

Do you offer re-takes?
Yes, I will be offering a re-take day after everyone has received their proofs. 

How much do prints cost?
Print and digital collections range from $39 - $99.  The most basic collection includes two 5x7s, two 4x6s, four wallets, and a class photo.  Canvases, larger prints, and additional digitals can be purchased a la carte directly from your gallery. Exact prices will be visible on the website once your child's proofs have been emailed. 

Please email me with any questions. I'm looking forward to creating some beautiful portraits of your child!
