  • I cannot wait to photograph your kids! You may know me already or have seen me around campus. I am a momma to 4 littles, 2 that attend our most amazing school! Fun fact, I was the first parent to enroll in Arete when it started and I have never looked back. 

All School Photo Galleries are online and securely privacy protected with a unique password for your school. 

No orders are taken on or before photo day. All orders are placed online once you see your child's photos. 


What are fine art school portraits?

I provide a modern approach to school photos. The background will be the natural landscape of the school grounds and the photos will be simple and classic. I just encourage the kids to be themselves and we get some really great authentic expressions. The type of photos you will want to hang on your walls! If you have siblings that attend the same school, I am happy to get some shots of your children together to if you sign up for Sibling Photos by emailing me ahead of time.

Example photos can be found here: AIMEE OBRIEN PHOTOGRAPHY | SCHOOLS 


What should my child wear?

Please avoid graphics or neon clothing. Solid colors are the best. Neutral tones tend to  photograph really well too! Hats can shadow their eyes, so better to not wear them. If we are doing sibling shots, please dress your kiddos in complimentary colors so they match each other in their sibling shot. Clothes matter, so make sure they are clean, wrinkle and toothpaste free. ;) 

I recommend neutral tones, creams, whites, blues, etc. 


How will I order?

Within 2 weeks of your child’s photo day, you will be emailed the link to a class proofing gallery. There will be 2-5 images of each child. You will be able to order prints, canvas wraps, specialty products and digital files directly from the viewing gallery. You can even share the gallery with other relatives so they can also place photo orders. The ordering process is simple and secure. The gallery will be live for 4 weeks and all orders must be placed within that timeframe. Print orders are shipped directly to the address you provide at checkout, and digitals are emailed to you within 24 hours of placing your order. I donate 5% of profits back to your school!




Please direct all questions to me at:

(530) 368-1699

Your photos will be online and ready to order by 5/1/23.
