Little Red Schoolhouse Photos!

My girls are lucky enough to go to Little Red Schoolhouse and I felt privileged to be asked to do school photos for Jessica and the kids! This was my first time doing shots like this and truth be told, I was a bit nervous. How could I control that many little children? And how the heck could I do all the photos and not have it take most of the day?!?

But it was easy! Not because of anything I did, but because Jessica is so amazing with the kids. Her husband, Thomas, also made it immensely easier by helping me do some of the other important things like getting waivers signed, handing out information and more… And I never could have done it all without their help!

I had a blast doing it and hopefully everyone enjoys the resulting photos!

The groups photos were interesting. The poor seeds just dissolved into tears – even Sammie, my youngest, and she’s used to this kind of thing! All the other group photos went well, though, with only a minor amount of photoshopping necessary.

And a few of the parents stayed so that I could shoot photos of their kiddos for individual shots. If I’m asked to do this again, I’ll definitely build in more time to make this easier to do!!

I also learned how to create small packages that can be cut out for smaller photos. This allowed me to lower my prices just for this shoot while giving people more choices! I’d love to get feedback from parents that order these packages….

Finally, a small slideshow with these photos and many more!

Thanks again, Jessica, for asking me to help you out!
