School Life provides families with beautiful photos of their children - while raising vital funds for the school! A selection of approx 10 to 12 images [in colour / or black & white] are provided by email to all families to view at their leisure, Allowing parents / guardians to view before they purchase! There is no sitting fee and no obligation to buy!
There are few fundraisers that are welcomed by both parents and fundraising committees. Parents are delighted with the photographs and committees with the funds raised!
My daughters school photos have always been awfully boring and just like the plain green screen portraits that I had when I was younger. As such I have always only bought the class photo and if I had portraits done I would go elsewhere. This year her school changed photographers to Dean Preston from Life By Lens School Life Photography and I was so impressed.
Gone are the green screens, there wasn't a green screen in sight! The photos were taken outdoors and had a natural look to them rather than a commercially posed generic shot. I bought a combo package which included 3 individual shots of my daughter and a class photo for only $26 so really reasonably priced too, and you could chose if you wanted black and white or colour for the individual shots. If you wanted them on a disc too you could pay extra bringing the total to $50 so it is really good value for money.
The individual photos of my daughter were taken outside, one of them she was hugging a tree in a very natural pose and it was a beautiful shot of her. Another she was sitting under a tree looking to one side which was again a very natural pose that captured her beautifully. It just blew all perceptions of school photography out the window and I would love for Dean to do photos of my son too as the image quality is just exceptional.
