Your privacy is important to me. I will be able to password protect your child's gallery so only you can view it. 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?

Not only do families walk away with photos that let their children's personalities come through, but schools also get 10% of net sales.  This makes for a great fundraiser for your school.  

what does the school receive?

You will receive a link to an online proofing gallery approximately a week after picture day. 

There will be 3-5 images of each child 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. 

Schools don't need to collect payment; I do that all for them.


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!
