School Marketing Photography & Individual Portraits
Capturing the magic of your school to help build meaningful connections with prospective parents and pupils
Great professional photography plays a very important role in a School’s marketing collateral. Whether that is for a school website, a printed prospectus or artwork for advertising or classroom walls, together we will create a series of your portraits from the point of view of your most important people... your pupils.
Going behind the scenes during a typical school day and capturing the fun and enthusiasm in the classroom in a way that a school tour or parent visit can’t, the photographs we create really bring your school’s core values to life, and help you to connect with your ideal prospective parents and pupils.
As a working professional photographer, qualified and certified with the British Institute of Professional Photography and the Master Photographers’ Association, Rachel has a very in depth knowledge all of the regulations and restrictions around working with and photographing children. Enhanced DBS cleared and with a background in children’s play and learn, Rachel is skilled at capturing the fun and reactions both inside and outside the classroom, from the dinner hall to IT lab or playing field! Using a bespoke shoot plan for the session based on the key areas and values to be captured, she works alongside staff and pupils as they go about their lessons, keeping any disruption to a minimum.
For smaller setting such as Nurseries, Individual and Sibling Portrait Photography is also available in May and October, with password-protected secure online parent viewing galleries for each child.
Parents have the option of purchasing professional quality mounted fine art prints, with GDPR compliant admin for the school kept to a minimum.

"Rachel’s photos are truly stunning. They capture the beauty of nature as well as showing the subject in an uncontrived way. Rachel is fantastic with children and always manages to take beautiful photos of them looking happy, relaxed and having fun. I would highly recommend Rachel, she is friendly, professional and hugely talented. I would not ask anyone else to photograph the children at my Forest School, she captures the essence of outdoor learning perfectly – and the children love her!"

"The pictures we received from Rachel of our children at nursery are stunning! We constantly get comments about how natural the pictures are. Rachel is also lovely to deal with and answered any of our questions. Would recommend."

"Rachel took some amazing shots of my 2yr old at Nursery! I have previously had my kids photographed (from another photographer) and it was quite a challenge to keep them still and interested but somehow Rachel managed to produce multiple shots for me to choose from - I was very impressed!! A reasonable price and lovely quality of print received. I would highly recommend!"

"Rachel took some fantastic photos of my son at his preschool. I don't know how she managed it, as he doesn't stay still for a second, yet she managed to capture his cheeky nature perfectly with so many lovely photos I wanted to buy them all. Rachel is always super friendly, extremely helpful and responds to messages quickly. The turn around of photos was exceptionally quick. I will definitely be using her again for some more fantastic photos."
