My objective is to deliver a unique and exclusive experience to families whose children attend schools, homeschool groups, or homeschool co-ops that have selected Shannon Kathleen Photography as their preferred photography service. 

I offer a highly personalized and professional approach, setting myself apart from large corporate photography enterprises. By selectively working with only a few schools, I am able to prioritize exceptional customer service and create artistic images.

My primary focus is to capture the true essence of each child in front of the camera. I never coerce a smile or resort to awkward poses or forced expressions. Instead, I strive to present an authentic representation of the child on that specific day. The outcome is a collection of genuine and timeless portraits that go beyond the conventional, cliché photos. Say goodbye to bright flashes and unflattering, busy backgrounds. I provide a light-hearted and enjoyable experience for your children, taking pride in fostering an environment where they can feel relaxed and be themselves, naturally.

"Shannon listened to what we were looking for and had great results! We'd very likely recommend her services!"

I offer competitive pricing with NO upfront costs, as all profits are generated from the ordering process. To cater to everyone's requirements, I provide a diverse range of collections and a-la-carte products.

Do these images come with a high price tag?

I am equipped to offer this service to schools, co-ops, and homeschool groups of varying sizes, ranging from small groups of children to larger institutions with up to 1,000 students.

What is the capacity for accommodating students?

I collaborate with each school individually to arrange photoshoots at any point throughout the academic year.

Most definitely! When I was in college I worked for a before and after school program in the White Bear Lake School District called Extended Day. Also, I was a Certified Medical Assistant for nearly 25 years and for 4 years of that I worked in Pediatrics. I have also raised my now 19 year old all on my own!

All schools are photographed indoors in a well lit room with natural light flowing in from a large window or windows. A backdrop is used.

Homeschool groups and Homeschool co-ops usually prefer the outdoors, so these are typically photographed outdoors in a nature setting. 

When do you schedule the fine art school photo shoots throughout the year?

Do you have experience working with children?

are these taken inside or outside?

Custom School Photography Experience Infused with Personality.

I operate exclusively online, connecting families to private/secure galleries for convenient ordering. These galleries are organized by child or family, or any suitable grouping for the school. Each child will receive 2-5 images, available in both color and black and white. Families have the freedom to select their desired photos for printing, instead of having a pose pre-determined for them. Additionally, I offer boutique products and digital images for future printing and archiving. To ensure smooth photo day experiences, a comprehensive PDF guide outlining ordering procedures and preparations will be provided to each school for distribution among families.

  • Prints are conveniently ordered online and delivered directly to the school within 2-3 weeks of picture day. Direct delivery option is also available.
  • I come equipped with all the necessary photography equipment for the day.
  • The school receives all PSPA files from me for yearbook purposes.
  • I handle any inquiries from parents and families regarding orders and products.
  • Depending on the school's requirements, I capture staff and class photos.

I am open to collaborating with schools to tailor my services according to your specific needs.
