Welcome to a new brand of school portraits!

I am excited to provide Children’s First with a new brand of school portrait. My goal is to provide a better, more personal experience to all the families of Children’s First INc.

What is a fine art school portrait?

Fine Art School Portraits are a modern approach to school photos. No more cheesy smiles with strange backgrounds. The background will be black and the photos will be simple and classic. Instead of forcing a cheesy grin, the children will be encouraged to be themselves and will never be forced to smile. With the use of pretty light, a beautiful portrait lens, and a clean background the focus is completely on your child for an artistic and genuine portrait.

When will Emily Dowell Photography  be at my school?

April 1st-5th Your teacher will inform you which day your child will be photographed. You are NOT required to make an order before seeing your proofs.  

What should my child wear?

Please avoid graphics or neon clothing.  Details around the collar and shoulders of a child's shirt look great with this type of portrait. Please go to this link for inspiration. Last year photos were done from the chest up. This year I will adding full body vertical images to your overall gallery. So your child’s feet will be in some of the photos. You can choose to have your child wear cute shoes or just go barefoot! Bare tootsies look really adorable in these portraits so shoes aren’t required.

  • Images show examples of a full body with bare feet and a close up portrait

Are siblings welcome?

Siblings are welcome! Your teacher will provide you with the procedure for bringing in additional children for sibling portraits.

How will I order?

Within two weeks of your child’s photo day, you will be e-mailed the link to a class proofing gallery. There will be 3-5 images of each child. Images will be in both color and black and white. I do not choose which photos you print; you do. You will be able to order prints, digital files directly, and choose from a line of specialty prints from your viewing gallery. The ordering process is simple and secure. The gallery will be live for seven(7) days. ALL ORDERS MUST BE PLACED IN THAT SEVEN DAY PERIOD.

When will I receive my photos?

4 weeks after the last day of ordering.

15% of profits will go back to your school!
