What to wear 

You know your child best, so dress them in comfortable clothes that will make their personality shine! 
If you need a little help, here are a few more ideas for Picture Day.

Accessory Ideas

Accessories shouldn't overwhelm your child, but instead enhance their cuteness! 

Children look especially adorable in fun hats, vests and jackets, and don't forget about their shoes - they will show in full length poses.

Layers and Textures

Dress your child in lace, ruffles, ribbons, etc. 

Layers add dimension and great texture to the portrait.

Sibling Picture Ideas

Coordinate, but don't match. 

Choose a color palette you love and coordinate both children's outfits!

No time to shop?

Denim pants or skirts with plain, solid colored t-shirts are a classic look!


Frequently Asked Questions

 

School photo day with Gianna Grace will be a little different than what you might be used to from a school photo company. The information on this page is designed to help you get an idea of what to expect. If you need additional information please feel free to contact us.! 

How does it work:

We photograph every child at school. We spend a few minutes with each child. Gone are the days of sit, smile, click, next. ! After teaching art and language arts for 9 years and serving as a preschool director for 5 years, I have spent quality time with all ages and have a gift with children. Ido my best to elicit genuine smiles – even if it means wearing a lobster hat. When your children are with me, I never push. I give gentle instructions and allow their expressions to emerge while we photograph.!

What if my child gets upset:

It happens. We will work through it. 

Some children are frightened by the set up of the backdrop or the newness of the situation. I do my best to comfort each child and allow them to warm up to the idea of having their photo taken. Some children like to watch their friends have their turn and some prefer to bring their special ‘Lovie’ with them. I read each situation and respect each child’s needs. There are some times that I desist in favor of not upsetting a child. If you have any information you wish to share with us before photo day please feel free to inform your child’s teacher and I will do my best to integrate it into our session. This is one of the main reasons that I believe in seeing your proofs before you purchase. If you don’t like your photos, you are under no obligation to buy.

Do you groom the children:

No. We ask the teachers to help with simple grooming tasks (i.e. fixing hairdos that have come undone or tucking in shirts). If you want your child’s hair combed please send a comb and make sure their teacher knows what you want. You can feel free tosend a note with any special requests (i.e. glasses off etc.) and I’ll do our best to accommodate.! !

Can you photoshop out the stain on my child’s shirt (etc.):

Try it as we might, there are just some hairs that won’t stay in place or spots on shirts that can’t be hidden by cropping. While we do edit every photo for proper exposure and color before we upload it to your gallery, we will sometimes miss little spots. Please feel free to contact me after your gallery is up if something is missed. There is a small editing fee for minor edits. 

How many photos should I expect in my gallery:

That depends. We do our best to photograph each child in multiple poses to give you as many options as possible. Some children are hesitant or frightened and in those cases we focus on making sure we get at least one relaxed expression. However, most times we are able to offer 2-3 choices in your gallery. We continue with multiple poses only when the children are responding positively. With younger children you should expect fewer poses as we tend to keep them in one spot and aim for multiple expressions. Older children are typically more receptive to attempting different poses. If another mom shares with you that she had six images in her gallery and you only have three, the reason is almost certainly one of two things: either your child was struggling and after multiple gentle attempts we felt that we were upsetting him/her; or I felt I captured a great expression and didn’t want to push any further. Please know that I have your child’s best interest in mind at all times.! !!
