Our goal is to provide a custom, boutique experience to all families attending the schools who have chosen Leah Hoskin Photography to photograph their students.

Our service is personal and professional. Unlike large, corporate photography operations, we only take on a few, select schools so that we can provide superior customer service and artistic images.

The aim is to capture the essence of the children in front of the camera. We will never force a smile. No awkward poses or faces, just the authentic child, on the day. The results are genuine and timeless portraits that are far from the traditional cheesy photos we have become accustomed to with bright flashes and unflattering, busy backgrounds. We provide a light and fun experience for your children and take pride in providing an environment where the kids can relax and be themselves, naturally.

Fine art school photos are taken using the natural light that shines through a window or outside under cover. This lends a beautiful quality to the portraits; and helps further for children to relax (as opposed to bright squinty flashes!).

Fine art school photos by Leah Hoskin Photography are available to all pre-schools, playgroups and schools in the Waikato region.

Detailed information describing the ordering process and photo day preparation will be provided to each school to be distributed to families prior to photo day. I will deal directly with families if they have any questions about ordering or products.

I bring all equipment I need including cameras and backdrop. Lighting is provided by natural light that shines through a window or outside under cover! I may request a teacher, parent or student leadership representative to assist with organising children on the day.

A composite photo including all students in a class is created. Sibling portraits can also be arranged. I take portraits of staff and provide a complimentary print package to each teacher as well.

Fine art school photos are shared with whānau and schools entirely online. Families are linked to password-protected private online ordering galleries. Galleries are set up according to year, class or whatever structure is relevant for the school or pre-school.

Each child will receive 2-5 images, in both colour and black and white. The family will choose which photos they like. Choices include:

  • Individual photographic prints
  • Packages of prints (the same image printed in different sizes, one one sheet of paper)
  • Gallery wrapped canvas prints ready to hang on the wall
  • High resolution digital images for future printing and archiving.

All prints and canvases are delivered to the school for distribution to families; and digital images are automatically delivered to families via online gallery for download.

I provide the school with all high resolution edited digital images to use for yearbooks, website, school advertising or for whatever they like.
