Yup, mine too. While there's a certain camp-value, I doubt they're images you want to blow up and hang on your wall.

How’s this for an alternative: Simple, natural and beautiful portraits of your children - no forced smiles allowed.

I offer a new approach to school or group portraits. My background is black and the photos are classic and timeless. Children are encouraged to be themselves and will never be forced to smile. These are images you will be proud to frame and share with family members. 

My set-up is extremely mobile and I only need a few minutes per child to capture a sweet, simple portrait.

How were your kids’ school pictures this year?

Awkward smiles? Cheesy backdrops?

Please contact me if you’re interested in bringing Better-Than-School Portraits to your school, daycare or group.

Our Better-than-School-Photos mini session was quick, fun, and yielded the most gorgeous photos. Janis was able to coax natural smiles from the most stubborn of children and we all agreed we'd never buy normal school photos again.
