Welcome to Modern School Portraits

School portraits are meant to capture a child as they are right now, but they don't have to be stiff or cookie cutter. Instead they should show a child's personality and zest - inqusitive, full of life, genuine and endearing. SHG Photography's goal is to capture what makes each child unique. I never force a smile, but instead provide a fun experience that enourages children to relax and be themselves. The result is raw, natural, artisitc photos that are keepsakes for years to come. I have had the pleasure of working with schools for the last four years providing timeless portraits with personality. The feedback from parents has been nothing short of amazing:

"Absolutely breathtaking! Thank you Stephanie for sharing your incredible talent with our preschool community! You captured our sweet girls so perfectly." -Corrie Zemann, St. John Vianney Preschool 

"Just to let you know, every person in my class that has posted on FB has raved of their child's portraits.
So I'm not the only one crazy for them."
- Melissa Chow, Inglemoor Coop

"Oh my goodness I can't even describe how much we love these photos and how much they mean to us. They literally brought tears to my husband's eyes." - Emily Anderson, Lakeview Montessori

I'm honored to have had such positive responses, and now I can't wait to share Modern School Portraits with more families even if your child does not attend a school I work with! 

When will Fall 2018 Modern School Portraits take place?

Monday, November 12th (no school due to the Veteran's Day holiday)

If an additional day is needed, I will add on Sun. Nov. 11th.


Where will the event be held?

I am opening my home (garage actually) in the Finn Hill neighborhood of Kirkland.

What do I get?

I photograph your children individually and together. For two children, you will receive three albums (one for each child and a third of them together). Each album will contain approx. 20 images in both color and black and white. 2-3 weeks after your session, you will receive a link to a full digital download of all images. These digitals are yours to keep and print whenever you like. I pride myself in capturing a variety of angles to showcase your children, telling a complete story of what they look like right now (not just a front-facing, straight-on image like traditional school portraits). If you would like prints in addition to your digital gallery, we can discuss at the time of your session.

How long will it take?

Each child's session will be 5-7 mins long.

For two individual children, plus the siblings photographed together, it will take approximately 15-20 mins. Easy!

What is the cost?

Individual child session $75 (+tax) each

Sibling session $129 (+tax)

COMBO: (2) Individual child sessions + Sibling session $199* (+tax)
*Please inquire if you would like a COMBO session with more than two children.

When will I receive my images?

No later than Nov. 30th
