Hi there!

I’m so excited to be bring back my unique boutique style of school portraits to St. Boniface! I know you’re going to love these genuine and expressive images of your kids! This page is designed to give you some helpful information to make your photo experience as easy and convenient as possible. Of course, if you have questions, please contact Rona.

What’s Different This Year:

We’re changing a few things up, including:

  • Sibling photo registration. Please register for sibling photos. If you do not register your kiddos, they will not be called to be photographed together
  • Retake registration must be done online. We will not call your kiddo for retakes without a parent/guardian request
  • Packages and other print products. You can purchase individual portrait prints without a package purchase (the best value is still to invest in a package though, just sayin’). Class photos are now complementary in packages A, B and C. Class photos are are available as an add-on with any other portrait purchase

FAQs

What makes this photography different?

My goal during my short time with your child is not to force a cheesy smile. I’m looking for natural expressions, which will range from serious and pensive to sweet and silly. The solid background keeps the focus solely on the child’s face and expression.

I’ll chat and interact with your child during our time together to elicit genuine expressions. For an extra fun time, have your child come prepared with a joke for ME (I’m always looking to expand my dad joke repertoire)! 🙂

I’m excited to make this a fundraising opportunity for St. Boniface. 10% off all profits will be given back to the school, so not only are you getting amazing images of your kids that you’ll love, you’re helping out the school!

What should my kiddo wear?

Bright clothes or ones that show off lovely detail in the shoulder area – sundresses, ties, collared shirts, pretty sleeves, etc are all great choices. All shots are waist or shoulder up, and on a black background. Please contact Rona directly with questions.

Please avoid large logos, hoodies, or sweatshirts. Do not wear black.

When is picture day?

Tuesday, Sept 17: Grades 4A, 5A/B, 6A; siblings, whole school photo

Wednesday, Sept 18: Grades Kinder, 1A, 2A, 3A, 3/4; siblings

When are retakes?

Tuesday, Oct 8. Please ensure you sign up for retakes.

Will there be class photos available?

You bet! A 5×7 class picture is included in Packages A, B and C, and is also available to add on to any portrait purchase for just $5

What about sibling photos?

If you have more than one kiddo attending, please register for sibling photos. You will be contacted with your sibling portrait date once your registration is received. While you’re not required to participate, they’re a fun memento from the school year, and a great Christmas gift!

When can I expect to see our photos?

Notification of your child’s proofs will arrive to your email within 3 weeks of picture day (don’t forget to sign up below to get gallery release notices and reminders for picture day!). You’ll access proofs via a private online gallery. You will have 2-5 images in both colour and black and white to select from. Online galleries are open for 10 days.

How does ordering work?

Once online galleries are published, you will have 10 days to place your order (there is a $10 late order fee to re-open your online gallery). Everything is viewed, ordered, and paid online, so there are no paper order forms to keep up with. You will have the option to purchase prints, image blocks, metal collage walls, mugs, cool 3D photo shelves holding a metal print and digital images with printing rights.

Grandparents and other relatives may also place orders through the digital gallery!

All prints will be delivered to the school unless requested otherwise.

What quality are the prints?

Prints come on professional-quality paper with lustre coating.

How much do packages cost?

We offer both print packages as well as digital negatives, where parents can print themselves. Packages range from $25–$50, and our digital negative collections begin at $45. We also offer custom studio products, such as image blocks, 3D photo shelves with a metal print and framed enlargements. All pricing is in your gallery, and easily viewable in this printable PDF.

When will I get my prints?

Product orders will be delivered to your kiddo’s classroom within 2–4 weeks from the date your gallery closes.

One last thing… a Model Release

Your child’s privacy is important to me!

I occasionally like to post a sneak peek on social media from my photo day at a particular school or add new kids’ photos to my website and marketing materials. If you haven’t signed a release with the school and you’d be willing to give me permission to include your child’s photo (never any names) for these purposes, please complete the following release form. Thank you so much!
