Has the pandemic caused you to sit this year out? Your child has already missed so much - don't let school photos make the list!
At-home schooling has a lot of benefits - from pajamas to choosing your own electives - and great school portraits is one of those perks! Who really liked the stiff background, artificial light and forced smiles of traditional school photos anyways? How about natural light and natural smiles to document this milestone moment for your child. Whether you're a newbie or a seasoned homeschool mom, you got this! And I've got you covered for pictures. =)
Why minis?Short and Sweet
Minis are perfect for a simple portrait or a brief attention span. Any type of student is welcome! These are especially valuable to those kids who are taking a year off from in person learning - don't let there be a gap in their memories! Desks and props will be wiped down between use and there will be a masked greeter to keep things moving quickly.
The Little White Chapel in Palm Harbor has so much to offer within a 5 step radius! Clean white brick (goes with any outfit), rich colorful brick, blue steps, some greenery, and even a "school house" appearance. The props will be minimal as my style is more natural. But I will bring a chalkboard, old fashioned school desk, globe and vintage books. We can wipe down the desk and items between sessions. These sessions will roll out back to back! So if you have your own chalkboard, please bring it so that we aren't spending too much time erasing, writing and sanitizing.
Any school age child and siblings welcome. No family photos at this time. These sessions are short and to the point!

Because babies don't keep. My son is learning the months of the year and the sounds that letters make. But if I'm not careful, he'll be asking for the car keys in no time at all. The best I can do is document the big moments and small.
What's it like to work with Whitney?
"She was endlessly patient, wonderfully creative and extremely professional. She has a wonderful sense of style and composure that gives her a unique liveliness. All in all an A+ experience."
"She knows how to take my picture the right way
Peter (age 10)
"Our photos look genuinely and natural and best of all, we look happy. I didn't have a shot list or anything and she just knew what to do."
When is payment due?
Payment is due at the time of booking to reserve your spot. Upgrading your package is an option after you view your full gallery. After we chat to confirm your desired time slot is available, I will send you an invoice and the spot will be yours!
What if it rains?
There is a rain date. Your session would simply be moved to the rain date. Same time. Same location. There are no refunds or reschedules if you are not available for the rain date. These back up dates are in October.
What if my child needs more time?
These are strict 15 minute slots. There will be a family waiting after you for their turn, so we can't run over (even if you are late). "What if my child takes time to warm up to people?" 15 minutes is fast, so if your child may need more time to butter up, joke around, and get used to me and the process, we may be better off booking a full session. A full session would also be better for someone wanting family pictures in addition to portraits of each child. Use the contact form at the bottom to inquire about full sessions.
Can siblings book together?
Yes. If you have more than 2 kids, you may just want to book 2 back to back slots to ensure we have enough time to capture each child and a group shot.
Do I get a print release?
Absolutely. They are full sized digitals for download with print release. Of course, I recommend that you print through me because I use some of the best labs in the country (that don't leave you with that orange spray tan appearance)! There's no pressure to print through me, however. These are your images to do with as you please - share and print to you heart's content!
Meet the photographer
Natural light photographer here with 15 years of experience with kids and families. I'm a mom to three under five, a lover of ice coffee and ice cream (Noticing a theme? It's hot here in Tampa Bay!). We half homeschool our oldest while trying to keep the baby fed and the toddler alive. I'm sure you can relate!
