a modern approach to school photo day

Fine Art School Portraits Greater Hartford Connecticut

With a patient, engaging, and playful approach,

I'll capture your child's true spirit in heartwarming, candid photos you'll cherish forever.

Avoid graphics or neon clothing.  Solids are least distracting. 

The background will be dark gray (a few shades lighter than the sample photos).   Wearing very dark clothing may blend into the background.

Photos will be taken from the waist up.

You are welcome to contact R Winkler Photography if you have any questions emailing info@rwinklerphotography.com 

What should my child wear?

You will receive a link to an online gallery approximately two weeks after picture day.  Within the gallery, there will be a separate album for each child, family, or set of siblings.  Albums will be organized by first name. 

There will be 2-5 images in each album and they will be in color AND black and white.

I do not choose which photos you print; you do! You will be able to order prints, canvas wraps, and digitals directly from the gallery.  Purchases can be made through my easy ordering online system.

The gallery will be live for seven (7) days. ALL ORDERS MUST BE PLACED DURING THAT SEVEN DAY WINDOW. 

Once orders have been placed, orders will be delivered to school within 4 weeks.

How will I order?

Contact Richelle via email at info@rwinklerphotography.

Your privacy is important to me. There is a option to password protect your album within the gallery when you fill out the sign up form.  I will never use any image without your permission and if you give me permission I will never share any personal details.

What about privacy?

  • Portraits of your child alone
  • Portraits with siblings together
  • Families

CLICK HERE If you only want individual and sibling portraits of your children and they all attend Our Children's Center, they will be photographed during the school day.  Each child must be signed up separately.

CLICK HERE If you are interested in a family photo and/or portraits including children that do not attend Our Children's Center, those will be taken in the evening.

If you want photos of your children who are enrolled at the school AND family photos, you need to sign up for a morning AND an evening session.  

What types of portrait sessions are you offering?

MONDAY MAY 6, 2024

Students of Our Children's Center

Families and Older Siblings

Each evening session is 5 minutes long. 

When will
R Winkler Photography be at school?

Modern School Portraits make school pictures fun again! No more tacky backgrounds or cheesy smiles, just your kid and their natural expressions.  I want their personalities to shine as they are right now at this point in time.  Some might be super comfortable in front of the camera, some might be more reserved.  I hope to make it a fun and relaxed so they walk away feeling good about their experience.

These are pictures you want to hand out to grandparents and hang on your wall!

"Highly recommend Richelle for all your photography needs!"

My son was a bit skeptical at first but you quickly won him over and did a fantastic job. The pictures we took are timeless and I can’t wait to book again!

Richelle was such a great find! She found a perfect location and we loved every single picture.
