Modern School Photos by Kate Daniel Photography "Simple, Real & Natural - Your Life, My Lens"

“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” – Dorothea Lange

Modern (Pre)School Photos

The Experience

Photos should be FUN!

I strive to create an enjoyable, relaxed and caring atmosphere for children and teachers.

My gentle, personable demeanor allows me to connect with each child so that their TRUE personality shines.

The result is timeless images showcasing REAL emotion.

About The Photographer

Meet Kate

Hi! I'm Kate...wife, mother and latte lover!

I'm also a natural light, lifestyle family photographer serving Calgary, Alberta and area.

I see the beauty in the ordinary and have a talent for capturing true emotion.

Life passes in the blink of an eye. I'm on a mission to capture life's fleeting moments so that parents may treasure the memories for years to come.

Today you are YOU, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is YOUER than YOU. - Dr. Seuss

The Finer Details

2021 UPDATE - Individual school photos are available indoors at your location.

The photographer (Kate) follows all Provincial COVID-19 related requirements.

Group/class photos are available at the discretion of the school.

(Pre)School Requirements / Set-up

  • Photo days typically take place in spring (April/May) or fall (Sept/Oct) but Kate will work with your school's needs to determine the perfect time for you.
  • A grey backdrop will be set up so that kids can have their photo taken one at a time.
  • Individual pictures are taken of each child & teacher, if desired.
  • All photographic equipment (camera, backdrop, etc.) is supplied by Kate. Equipment is cleaned regularly.
  • A teacher helper is requested to assist with the flow of Photo Day.
Kate is so natural and easy going to work with. Her relaxed attitude sets the tone and things just seem to fall into place. Each time we work with her she manages to capture memories that we cherish.” – Nicole O.

The Ordering Process

  • Photos are edited within 4 weeks of your school’s photo day.
  • 1 - 3 images of each child are uploaded to a private, online viewing gallery for parents/guardians.
  • Print/digital file packages are available for purchase, although not required.
  • Parents/guardians may choose from 4 different packages (selecting 1 image from the 1 - 3).
  • All packages include a digital file of the selected photo.
  • Additional digital files, prints and packages are available for purchase.
  • All communication regarding ordering/purchase of products is done online between Kate and the parent/guardian.
  • They are produced through a professional photo lab that offers the highest quality professional photo printing services and products.
Kate has a giftedness about her timing and a genuine love for capturing the essence of an interaction. The final photos far exceeded any expectation I could have ever imagined.” – Nicole S.

Benefits to Schools

  • A professional & personal approach to school photography.
  • Children are treated as the unique individuals that they are.
  • Because I only work with a handful of schools each year, it allows me to really take the time with each child and address your school's needs.
  • Digital files of class and children photos are provided to schools should they require them for yearbooks, etc.
  • A high resolution digital file of each teacher is included at no extra cost. ($150 value)
  • Every child will receive one 5x7 class photo (when applicable), regardless of whether or not they purchase a print package ($500+ value)
