I am Michele Neal Celentano, owner and photographer at PMA School Portrait Photography!
My team and I are so excited to photograph your student/students on their upcoming picture day at school!
We genuinely have a ton of fun photographing schools. Hanging out with kids for a couple of hours is an awesome way to start our day.
Our school portraits are not the mugs shots from 1990. We actually encourage silly faces, we say dumb things and ask funny crazy questions to get fun and authentic expressions from all of the students. So, don't be surprised when you see funny faces along with genuine smiles in your students portrait galleries. After-all, picture day at school should be fun - not boring!
Myself and my team also pay attention to details. When we notice messy hair or collars that are sticking up we ask your student if it's okay to adjust hair or clothing. *WE ALWAYS ASK PERMISSION.* If you are okay with us making those small adjustments let your student know it's okay to say "yes". If you prefer that we don't adjust hair or clothing they can tell us
On picture day your student will bring home at card (see example below) with an access code and the website link to log in and view the images. Galleries will be available to view and purchase your photos within 3 to 5 days after picture day. You will also receive an email and text message (if we have your phone number) with the direct link to log into your galleries. If you don't receive a message from us please feel to log into the website and use your access code to log in. You can also scan the QR code on the card to log into the gallery.
Picture day should be fun and stress free! Here are some suggestions to get your students ready to look their best.
1. Make sure shirts are clean, ironed and stain free.
2. Make sure hair is neat and styled. If you would like, you can send your student with a comb or brush for a quick touch up.
3. Remind your student to relax and just have FUN!
As a small local business owner my goal is to make you happy!
If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to us so we can help!
I personally answer most emails, texts and calls.
All the best,
Michele Neal Celentano
