12 ways your school picture day could be better! | Boston school photographer

I have been taking school pictures at Boston area preschools for the last five years and in that time I have created portraits of hundreds of beautiful little people.  Despite the fact I have consistently received rave reviews from parents about the children’s images, I find that school administrators still have uncertainty about switching to a new photographer or walking away from traditional big box school portrait providers.

I thought it might be helpful if I summarize the 12 most important benefits of hiring me for your school’s next picture day!
