Modern Fine Art School Portraits
Asher + oak is excited to announce a new,modern Fine Art School Portrait Program in 2018.
we all know (and likely have a love/hate relationship with) those cheesy, corporate school pictures - awkward hands, stiff smiles, and backdrops straight outta 1989. for decades they've been not just the norm, but kind of the only option in schools, and often the only professional portraits families will get of their children. it's time to bring kids' portraits into the modern era.
asher + oak photography's fine art school portrait program provides a beautiful, custom alternative to traditional school portraits. stunning and most importantly, authentic portraits of your your kids, without the forced smiles and eye-roll-y backdrops. documenting their true personalities. that amazing toothless smile they'll only have this year, their sweet and quiet (or funny and wild) nature, those toddler curls, those beautifully earnest looks of joy that likely won't last into adolescence.
All kids are photographed with no obligation to purchase. YOU choose from 2-5 images (offered in both color and black and white) from a private, password-protected online gallery. order the prints, canvases, and/or digital files that YOU love best. You can have your order shipped directly to you (or to the grandparents), or pick them up at your child's school - it's completely up to you. all photographs are printed by a professional print lab, using archival fuji photographic paper - a piece of art fit for your walls and to be kept and enjoyed for generations.
modern + timeless portraits
Asher + Oak Photography is known for award-winning lifestyle portrait photography, with an organic and honest style. The same natural expressions and connections, paired with over a decade of professional fine art experience, is brought to your school portraits. All children are photographed in beautiful natural light, using a simple black backdrop, to highlight their real personalities, not compete with a busy, artificial background.
completely custom packages for parents
While all children will be photographed, parents are under no obligation to purchase. Packages of digital images and framed and unframed prints and canvases are completely customizable, offering a wide variety of options for every budget. All images taken of a child are offered in both color and black + white, and families may choose as many or as few images and products as they like. All ordering is handled completely online using secure, password-protected galleries, making it easy for both families and schools.
benefits for schools and homeschool groups
Asher + Oak is happy to offer a 10% donation on all profits from image and print purchases to the school. In addition, schools are able to utilize these gorgeous and modern portraits in their own media and promotional materials. I also offer staff headshots and school branding photography for a significant discount when working with schools, which can be used on school websites, social media, yearbooks and more.
I also understand that not all kids attend school in a traditional way - I myself both attended public school and was homeschooled during part of my childhood. Homeschool groups of 20+ kids are welcome to take part in Fine Art School Portraits - get in touch for more details.
