Sheena Magnesen Photography | School Portraits


As you may or may not know, Sheena Magnesen Photography offers classic and natural school portraits instead of the cheesy portraits you may remember from when you were younger!

Portraits can be taken either during the Fall when school is back in session or in the Spring before end of the year activities.  Portraits are taken on a clean background within the school or outside on school grounds (if the weather permits) to create a timeless, beautiful portrait for parents to treasure for years to come.

Parents will enjoy a beautiful color and black and white online viewing gallery with 3-5 options of their child and can order additional prints and keepsake items directly from a website without having to deal with order forms, lost checks, missing cash and everything else that can happen when handing children important documents and money.


How Portraits Work:

Sheena Magnesen Photography will come and meet with the school director or whomever is in charge with photo day
We will set a schedule for each class/teacher/age group or whatever is appropriate for your school
On Photo Day, each class will each have approximately 30 minutes to get their portraits taken
After all classes are photographed, allow for 3-4 weeks to get all photos edited and uploaded for the parents' galleries
Parents will receive an email specific to their child and have the ability to view, purchase and download photos directly from the Sheena Magnesen Photography website
If your school offers yearbooks, parents will have the option to select the yearbook pose for their child and the school will receive a file with all students' images


Something Unique and Exciting to Consider:

If your school hosts an annual fundraiser or gala event, or wishes to start one in the near future, you can surprise parents with a large print (usually 8x10) of their child that can be displayed at the entrance of your school as they arrive for the event.  By charging parents a small fee of $15-25 (or another amount of your choosing) you can create a fundraiser for your school while letting parents add a beautiful print of their child in their home.  Studies show that children who see images of themselves throughout the house boosts their self esteem (see article from Design Aglow for more)   Consider finding a local printer and framer to keep your costs low so you can maximize on income potential.
