Edmonton Boutique School Photographer

These aren’t the school pictures you’re used to! Say goodbye to stiff poses and fake smiles and hello to dynamic, personality-filled portraits

I’m so excited to bring you a more custom, candid and boutique option for school portraits than your average school portrait provider. I focus on making connections with the children I photograph to bring out their natural expressions.

Parents have been craving a service like this to mark these fleeting school memories; and I know this program is a definite value add to your elementary, preschool or daycare/child care centre.

How it works


First, we decide on a picture day that works for your school or child care centre. I’ll need very little from you other than lists of who will be photographed and some help in letting your school community know about the upcoming picture day.


On picture day, I just need a space to set up – we can work with a solid coloured background in a gym or common space, or use a natural setting outdoors. I’ll work with you to decide on the best location (no green screens or lasers here!) Using simple backdrops allows the focus to be purely on the child in the photo.


After images are edited, proofs are released in password protected online galleries for parents and guardians to order from. Digital orders are delivered immediately by email download link; print orders are collected and sent for printing in bulk after the ordering deadline (this helps keep costs low). Print orders are sorted, individually identified and delivered to the school.

You deserve fun, personality-filled school photos
“Rona at Pause Photography creates magic.”

She captures the most special moments of the kids‘ expressions. We were looking for a new photographer for the daycare with something different to offer. Rona has that! She is amazing with the kids and does not expect them to pose or sit still. Rona follows the children around capturing every moment with their curiosity. Our families absolutely loved the photos, and they were asking if we booked her for the following year! Rona was great to work with, patient, understanding and just a pleasure. We can not wait for the next time.
