Fine Art School Photography

I aim to provide schools and families with a personalized, custom experience. To ensure I am able to maintain professional, and exceptional customer service, I choose a handful of select schools each year to work with.

My work is inspired by my own children, in that, I've learned that the most beautiful portraits are ones that capture the essence of that child. Genuine interaction, keeping the atmosphere light and friendly, and never forcing smiles or awkward poses, are key in creating a fun and relaxed atmosphere to bring out those personalities naturally.

Offered Services

My main goal is make this experience as easy and user friendly as possible. Everything is completely online.

Gallery links are sent to the families where they are able to choose which photo(s) they want to order. Each child has their own password protected gallery. Each child is provided 3+ poses in both color and black and white.


Unlike "traditional" school photos, the family chooses which images they want printed. Where they also have the option to buy boutique items such as, canvas gallery wraps and digital images, for future archiving or printing for cards and novelty items, etc. 

Parents can even choose yearbook photos as well!

All prints are ordered online and delivered directly to the parent.

All equipment and personnel that is needed for photo day is provided for by Sarah Taylor Studios.

The school receives all high resolution digital images to use for any and all school material.

Any questions about ordering and products are handled by me.

Digital staff photos are provided for staff members.

If a school has any custom needs or requests, I am more than happy to accommodate.


I am able to provide my services to schools as small as 20 and as large as 600 at this time. I work with children from the ages of 1 to 18. And also offer my services to daycares and pre-schools as well.


My rates are very competitive to corporate photography operations. Nothing is due up front, and all profit is made through orders. A variety of collections are available to choose from with the option to add a-la-carte items as well, to fit everyone's needs.


I provide my services all during the academic year. I work with each school to schedule when would be the best time for them.

Sara Motley

Sarah just took the portraits at my children's school and we were completely amazed by the ease of the process and the beautiful photos she captured! Sarah even allowed us to bring in younger siblings for an individual or group shot; she was so professional, worked quickly, and her kindness put my kids at ease. The ordering was all done online, with very reasonable prices, and I received my digital files the next day. The photos are incredible, far surpassing the typical stiff-postured school portrait with strange faux backdrops! The best part is that she somehow captured each of their unique personalities behind their sweet faces and more than just school portraits, these are now treasures that tell our family's story.
