First day of school photographs

If you would like to capture your child’s first day of school photograph in style, our walk-in school portrait service might be just the thing.   Every year, we take block out space in the studio for short pupil portrait sessions.  


Don't get caught out (again!)

No need to be caught out by school photo day ever again.  More than once we’ve been blissfully unaware of the fact they were happening until weeks later when the proof shows up.  The proof that seemed to have been taken on the day we couldn’t find the jumper that fit and their hair was much longer than we ever remember it getting.  Or worse still… they’ve pulled a very uncharacteristic face and been chewing a leaky pen. 

Let's get it right

Our walk-in, first day of school photograph sessions are appointment based and held around the main back-to-school dates (although you can ask for one at any time).   Your appointment will last 5 – 10 minutes and we’ll take two or three similarly posed pupil portraits against a standard school photo backdrop.   The sessions are flexible, so you can bring along siblings and pre-schoolers to get in on the act.  There’s no sitting fee and there’s no obligation to buy a photograph.

Not got time?  Too stressful?   Check out our virtual photography portrait sessions, or if you prefer to do it yourself, check out our handy tips to get the most out of your first day at school photo!

How it works

Within a day or two of your session, you’ll get access to our private online gallery where you can view your images.  We have great value mounted school portrait packs to choose from, but if you wish, you can buy unmounted individual prints or digital downloads.   


Mounted school portrait packs start at €20, single prints start at €10 and digital downloads at €15
