Who can have their portraits taken?

Infant, Toddler 1, Toddler 2, Preschool and After Care children attending Stepping Up.

Unfortunately at the moment, I cannot accommodate Knoxdale students who attend the After Care program. If the school reopens in person, I will consider opening another session.

I have 3 (or more) children. How can I sign up?

Wonderful! Send me a message at to discuss pricing and registration.

Can siblings join the photo session?

Unfortunately no (unless they are in the same classroom). Siblings must remain in their assigned classes to respect covid protocols.

What are fine art school portraits?

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.

With the use of natural light, a beautiful portrait lens, and a clean background the focus is completely on your child for genuine expressions.

How do I make my payment?

Payment can be sent by e-transfer to

How many photos will I receive?

You can expect to receive your proofing gallery within 20 business days of your session date, delivered via online gallery to share with family and friends.

Can I order prints?

Yes! You will be given personal printing rights to print your images. I offer professional lab printing of images a la carte through your online gallery. Prints are fulfilled by GTA Imaging and delivered directly to your address.

What is a model release?

I respect your privacy. A model release provides the option to have your photos shared publicly by Holly Rose Images on social media and/or the website.

What if my child misses photo day?

Unfortunately there are no make-up dates available for picture day. Your payment will be reimbursed.

What safety measures will be taken?

Safety will be my top priority. I will be wearing a mask at all times. Social distancing measures will be taken into account. If sessions cannot be held on the scheduled day due to Covid-19 restrictions, you will receive a full refund.

What should my child wear?

You will receive a photo guide two weeks prior to the photo session. Please avoid words/graphics and neon colors. Bright pink/orange/green are very difficult to work with as they cast colors on the skin. Choose neutral colors and simple solids work best for the timeless nature of fine art portraits. Remember, only their waist up will be in the picture! I also suggest avoiding large and bright hair bows that can detract from the facial features and often cast colors onto the skin.
