Back to School Portraits – Fall Photography {Northville Child Photographer}

Hi Friends!  Summer is more than half over.  I’m devastated!  🙂  I am so enjoying this time with my two girls, our many adventures, and visits from family.

BUT, it’s time to start thinking about the new school year.  I mean, those backpacks are already for sale at Meijer! 🙂

Once a year I offer a chance for you to get some TRULY GREAT school portraits.  These aren’t your normal staged school portraits that may or may not result in a smile!  These school portraits are authentic, genuine, and uniquely YOUR CHILD.  After all, that’s what I’m all about as a photographer.

I hold these 10 minute sessions at my home studio in Northville, Michigan.  I offer a wide variety of print products – all available a la carte – as well as all digital files!

What Parents Have Said About My Back-to-School Portraits:

“School pictures are always stressful. Between the outrageous cost and never knowing what kid will show up the day of pictures, I’ve dreaded school pictures. For the past few years, Sharon has taken our son’s school pictures. Not only do the pictures turn out wonderful, she takes her time so she can capture his personality. And yes, I said pictures. Unlike pictures at school, Sharon provides multiple to choose from.” -Jenni B.

“I can’t believe that you captured THAT smile!” -Mom of a three-year-old

“That is the best picture anyone in our family has ever had taken.” -Dad of a three-year-old

Take a peek below at the results from one of my past sessions!

FYI: I also provide these authentic, joyful, and unique school portraits for preschools in Northville, Plymouth, South Lyon, and Livonia.  There’s some additional information on that at the bottom of this post! 🙂
