welcome

Sawyers Bay School

YOUR SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHY FOR KIDS WITH PERSONALITY!
1/2

Your annual school photography day is here!

We'll be following the same format as last year - except with quite a few Delta level 2 precautions in place.

Signing in and regular hand washing and sanitising.

Both myself (the photographer) and my assistant will be wearing masks all day. I have found that wearing a mask does not affect my interaction with the kids (although it does steam up the eye-piece on my camera)!

All equipment that children touch will be wiped down with disinfectant or washed before we come.

We'll be maintaining a 1m physical distance between us and any children or staff as much as we can.

CLOTHES MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Colours & neutrals work well. Bright colours pop really nicely and give good separation from the background. Patterns work well too as long as they're not too distracting.

Avoid neons, super-saturated colours and black.  I don't recommend blacks as they tend to blend into the background. 

Stay away from characters and heavy branding. They'll not only date your pictures but pull attention away from your child's face.

GET THAT PICTURE OF SIBLINGS TOGETHER!

Siblings at school together will be photographed during the day.

You can bring younger or older siblings (not at Broad Bay School) along in the morning between 8.30-9am so you can get great photos of them all together.

Please book your time slot here.

You MUST sign in.

SHARE THOSE PICTURES YOU LOVE & GET THEM ON DISPLAY

I want you to have school photos you're going to love enough to put on display in your home - the bigger the better!

There have been a few improvements to the Price List this year, but no price increases on last year.

Take a look at the 2021 Price List here.

  • Super-simple prices - understand it one glance.

  • Flexible packages - mix and match your favourite expressions (now you can have the smile AND the kooky look)!

  • Framed prints are here! (I'm jumping up and down with excitement about this one)

    Choose your absolute favourite picture, or your top four picks ,  to create a totally awesome artwork ready to display in your home.

    If last year's prints are still sitting in a draw waiting for you to buy a frame then you're going to love this option!

EDITH LEIGH

Edith loves the challenge of getting a range of true expressions and giggles from kids.

She'll do whatever it takes to get a great shot, but even she admits her line of fart jokes is pretty bad!
