"I've always loved the first day of school better than the last day of school. Firsts are best because they are beginnings."

Back to school Mini Sessions

Whether your children are starting school in person or virtually this year, or you are homeschooling or joining a learning pod, chances are you may want to commemorate the start of another school year with some great photos. And who knows what school photos will look like at your district school, am I right? Many times the photos offered by the school are rushed and don't always allow for your child's unique personality to shine through! Well, I would love to take the opportunity to deliver to you some truly special photos in a 20 minute session designed just around your kiddo (or kiddos) so you can forego the worries of so-so (or bad!) school photos and chance potentially unsafe indoor portraits during a Covid pandemic!

The Look

My biggest goal for your session is for you to walk away with some special photos that capture your little (or big!) learner at this time in their life that are fun and show their personality! Forget the awkward stiff school photos of the past!

Props: You are welcome to provide your own props similar to what you see in the sample photos, or I can provide props along with hand sanitizer and wipes to ensure your child's safety. You are NOT required to use any props if you do not wish to.

Covid 19

All sessions will be conducted outdoors. I will remain socially distanced at all times, with a mask on. But don't worry, I will still be able to engage your kiddo(s) to grab those big smiles and provide plenty of interactive guidance to ensure fabulous photos while making sure we stay safe! If you have any specific needs or concerns regarding Covid-19 and your shoot, please reach out!


Since school looks different for everyone this year, your location might be your front steps or backyard, the park around the corner from your house, or it could even be at your actual school in front of their sign or the school buses parked along the street! Decoration your own 'first day of school' sign and bringing it to some of the many colorful murals in RiNo is another great option too. We'll talk over what you have in mind. If you are working with a pod or group and want to chat about getting a group shot and a discount on multiple sessions at one just let me know!
