Erin Wood Photography offers fine art school portraiture to preschools, day cares and schools in the central Connecticut area during the spring and fall. I wanted to offer the same experience to my clients during the summer. My approach to fine art photography is very personal. I aim to capture the true personality of each child, rather than the cheesy, posed portrait.
What is Back-to-School Portraiture?
Fine art portraiture is a more modern approach to photos. No more cheesy smiles and fake backdrops. The background will be black and the photos will be simple and classic. The children will be encouraged to be themselves and will never be forced to smile.
What is included in the session?
Each session will be 15 minutes at the studio set up at my home in Southington. I will take several portraits of your child with the aim of natural expressions. Siblings can be photographed both separately and together. If you wish to photograph siblings, please book one appointment per child.
Proofs will be made available online and will be provided one week following the session. Each child is provided with 2-5 proofs in a proof gallery. Families may view their proofs online and decide which portraits they would like to print. I offer printing services and a variety of products ranging from traditional prints to canvas wraps.
Final printed products can be picked up within 2 weeks of your order.
How are these sessions different than your regular child sessions?
These mini sessions are much shorter than my regular sessions and only focus on facial expressions. I will use a studio set up with a black backdrop. No full body shots will be taken. Final print products will be delivered in uncut packages much like school photos. I use the same professional lab, so print quality will be the same as my regular sessions. If you are looking for the full experience of a session, I suggest a regular child or family session.
When are these sessions?
August 25th from 9 am until 12 pm.
Please arrive 5 minutes early for your session as the next client will arrive in the next time slot!
How much will this cost?
The prints for these sessions are very reasonable and different than my usual products, while maintaining the same great quality. Sessions are $40 for each child. If you are booking for siblings, the session fee is $75 up to four children. I have various collections for these sessions starting at $20. Canvas wraps and digital files can be purchased. For these sessions, all ordering and proofing will be done online!
