parent pre-shoot guide

I am excited to have the opportunity to provide your school with fine art school portraits. My goal is to provide a better and more personal experience to all the families who attend the schools who have chosen me to photograph their children.

What is a fine art school portrait? Fine Art School Portraits are a modern approach to school photos. No more cheesy smiles with dated backgrounds. The background will be black and the photos will be simple and timeless. Instead of forcing a cheesy grin, the children will be encouraged to be themselves and will never be forced to smile.

Example photos can be found here:

School Gallery


What should my child wear? Please avoid graphics or neon clothing. Solid colors are best. All shots are from the shoulders up. So go on, let your kids wear jeans or their favorite leggings and their play shoes! Contact Fox & Wagon Photography if you have any questions.

Are siblings welcome? Yes! Siblings are welcome! Please feel free to bring siblings along for portraits together and alone.

How will I order? Within approximately two-three weeks of your child’s photo day, you will be e-mailed the link to a class proofing gallery. There will be 2-5 images of each child. Images will be in both color and black and white. The best part is…  I do not choose which photos you print; YOU do. You will be able to order prints, canvas wraps, and digital files directly from the viewing gallery. The ordering process is simple and secure. The gallery will be live for seven (7) days. ALL ORDERS MUST BE PLACED IN THAT SEVEN DAY PERIOD.

Once orders have been placed, your photos and/ or canvas wraps will be delivered to your school within four (4) weeks.
