Second Ave Photography LLC » Internationally published Northern Virginia photographer specializing in natural newborn, children + family, and breastfeeding portraits.

I adore offering boutique school photography in Loudoun County. As a lifestyle photographer, my goal is to capture a photograph accentuating each child’s individual personality – who they are – for timeless portraits that parents will treasure for years to come. I do not believe in forcing a smile; instead, I strive for authenticity and natural expressions. Unlike “traditional” school photography operations, I take on a limited number of schools each year, allowing me to provide your families artistic imagery and superior customer service.

Simple is my mission for you. While I specialize in working with preschool-aged children in my portrait business, I will bring an assistant with me to stay on schedule and make sure everyone looks their best. Clear and easy to follow picture day preparation and ordering instructions will be provided for both you and your families. Money is never exchanged through the school – let me take care of all of that with an intuitive online ordering system!

Shoots are scheduled at any time in Fall or Spring during the academic year. For a fun and unique experience, we will set up outside, using the grounds or the school itself as our backdrop!

I am here to help you! A detailed PDF (or flyer to send home) describing shooting day preparation will be provided prior to photo day, as well as one explaining all ordering procedures as soon as photos are ready. Once all of the school images are finalized families will be provided password-protected online ordering galleries. Each child will be shown 2-4 color images and one class photo.

Families will be able to purchase their child’s school pictures to fit their needs. I offer prints, a la carte and discounted packages, as well as digital files. Parents will be able to choose their favorite photo instead of having one selected for them. Print packages will be assembled and returned to the school to go home with students while a la carte orders are shipped directly to their home.

The best part: I will handle any questions from parents and families about ordering and products.

I provide complimentary staff photos, if desired, and I donate 15% of net proceeds to nonprofit schools or to another nonprofit organization of your choice.
