Boutique School Photography

Thank you for all your emails and requests for school photos during this unprecedented 2020 school year.  This January will be taking classic school portraits at my studio in downtown Portland.  All safety protocols will be followed and I will have the studio sanitized to meet all of the Oregon Covid-19 requirements.  Windows will be open to ensure fresh air for all my clients.

Portraits will be shot inside my SW Portland studio , on a simple black backdrop with a tight frame.  Shots are candid and personal, allowing your child to just be themselves!

Please dress your child appropriately for photo day.  We recommend clothing with bright colors and lovely detail in the shoulder areas including dresses, pretty sleeves, collared shirts and ties.  Please avoid hoodies, sweatshirts & large logos.

Digital files are available to share and print as you please.  Once purchased they will be ready for instant download.  

Should you have any questions about Preschool Photography at your school, please contact Suzanne directly at:

Reserve your date & time here: . There is a $25 deposit required per family that can be applied to your digital file order or print order (see pricing below). Once received I will email with a specific time for you and your student to arrive.  Thank you very much!  

  • IMPORTANT NOTE:  These images are captured in a short time period with your child.  We do our best to capture a variety of expressions and conjure authenticity from your son or daughter during this time.  Some children are naturally more comfortable than others when it comes to photographs.  Each child in the gallery has multiple proof options.  Some have more than others.  We do not believe in forcing a child to “perform” just for the sake of capturing “the shot” – but rather we do our best to work with your child, make them comfortable, and enjoy that short minute or two we have.  Please understand that all images are shot with the goal of being “real” – who they are in that moment.  Some laugh, some cry, some stand stoic and pensive, some bounce around and giggle… and we attempt to artistically capture all of this.  The options included in the gallery of your son or daughter were the best shots we had on file and we hope you enjoy each of them!  Thank you for your understanding.

This Fall I will be at the MAC for student’s Back to School Portraits.  This will be the eighth year photographing the MAC PlaySchool, and I look forward to this event every Fall!  These are open to all students and siblings.

Portraits will be taken on Wednesdays in January at my studio in SW Portland.  Portraits will be shot outdoors under a covered area, on a simple black backdrop with a tight frame.  Shots are candid and personal, allowing your child to just be themselves!
