“Kelly was very professional, patient and welcoming. She made my daughter feel at ease while capturing the most perfect, and pure moments on camera. Her work is truly amazing. ”
— Emily R.
“We have all the photos of our oldest for the last 3 years, and it has been so truly awesome to watch her grow up through your lens and to see the changes from year to year. You have such a talent! We love how you capture each child’s personality. Their poses and expressions are natural and candid. I always look forward seeing how they are going to turn out each time.”
— Ashley F.
“Our son actually told us he planned on not smiling for picture day, so we weren’t expecting much. When we received our photo gallery, we were shocked! Not only was he smiling, but it looked authentic! She really captured his mischievous personality and he looked HAPPY! Best portraits ever!”
— Noriko H.
My goal is make school portraits as easy as possible for both the school and parents.
KPP service is personal and professional. Unlike large, corporate photography operations, I only take on a few, select schools so I can provide superior customer service and artistic images.
My aim is to capture the essence of the children in front of the camera. I will never force a smile. No awkward poses or faces, just the authentic child, on the day. The results are genuine and timeless portraits that are far from the traditional one shot cheesy photo we have become accustomed to with bright flashes and unflattering, busy backgrounds. I provide a light and fun experience for your children and take pride in providing an environment where the kids can relax and be themselves, naturally.
“Kelly is great with kids. Makes them feel comfortable and enjoy taking pictures. Kids are relaxed and having a good time which makes their expressions great. Would highly recommend!”
— Kristine P.
“ I appreciate that both my kiddos got to take sibling pics and you had such a variety to choose from. Much better than the average “generic” pose and no choices. Thank you!”
— April D.
School portraits with KPP is a completely online operation. Families are linked to password-protected online ordering galleries. Galleries are password protected. Each child will be provided 4-6 images. The family may chose the photos they want printed, as opposed to having a pose chosen for them. I also provide boutique product choices such as canvas gallery wraps and digital images for future printing and archiving. A detailed PDF describing all ordering procedures and shooting day preparation will be provided to each school to be distributed to families prior to photo day.
Prints are ordered online and shipped directly to the address provided at checkout. The school can be completely hands off.
I have all the equipment needed for photo day. Photos can take place outside or inside depending on what the preschool prefers and weather permitting.
KPP will answer any questions from parents and families about ordering and products.
Staff portraits are complementary depending on the school’s needs.
I am happy to provide custom services that fit your unique needs.
I work with each individual school to schedule shoots any time during the academic year. Most school select Spring (between February - May) and/or Fall (Sept - Nov). Some school choose to have two sessions a year, some select one per year (this is completely up to your director). Special themed sessions (Valentine, Easter, Grandparents Day, Christmas) are also available throughout the year.
