WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT & HOW TO PREPARE
HOME DAYCARE PHOTOS!
My name is Rachael Hundley. I am the owner and photographer at Little Monarchs Photography. I am so excited to announce 2021-2022 Daycare Photos to you all and eager to meet you and your little ones.
I have been in this business for over 10 years. I have children in school and know how school pictures can turn out sometimes. To ease that stress, I offer more one-on-one time with your child to ensure the delivery of smiles the first time! Families are linked to password-protected online ordering galleries, making ordering a snap!
Each gallery will be stocked with 5+ images for viewing and purchasing. You may choose the poses YOU want, as opposed to having a pose chosen for you. I also offer a great line of products and quality prints. You will receive an email with ordering instructions and passwords.
Let's talk about what you can expect before and after your home daycare's picture day!
By now, you may have already gotten an email from your provider letting you know the date and time that I will be taking pictures. Next, you will need to fill out an inquiry form so that I can send you a link to your reservation fee invoice and print/digital contract. By filling out this form, it will also link you to your child's online gallery. Once the reservation fee is paid in full, I will have your child in a time slot and ready for business! This balance needs to be paid 2 days prior to your provider's picture day.

Now that that is taken care of let's talk about how to prepare for your child's picture day.
THE BEFORE: Make sure to give yourself time to figure out what your child will be wearing for picture day. If you think they will get dirty on the way to your provider's home, then maybe pack the outfit. Try to keep as wrinkle-free as possible. I think kids look cool in just about anything (clean), so don't stress too hard about what to wear. They will look amazing!
PEP TALK: Some children get a little shy for pictures because they don't know the person taking the photos and that is totally normal and justified! It is my job to get them to come out of their shell and trust me and feel comfortable. Something that may help, is showing them a picture of me and telling them my name. You can find a picture of me on the "ME" link at top of this page and a short summary about me! I used to own and run my own daycare once upon a time and my greatest strength was knowing how to be silly and fun enough to help anyone feel safe and comfortable and happy! I have no doubts that we're going to have a great time!
THE BIG DAY: I will arrive at your provider's home on the date provided to you for your pictures and I will set up my equipment and get ready for your children to enter my area one at a time. We will shoot outdoors as long as the weather permits otherwise your provider will have an area in their home that I will set up in. Each session is about 10 minutes long. That may seem like a very short time, but it does actually give me adequate time to spend more one-on-one than a photographer you might see in a school setting and I will not move on until I know I have the "money shot". I take all CDC safety guidelines seriously and practice with precaution. I will be masked up and standing at a safe distance at all times. Please talk to your children prior to our session about safety and safe distancing as well.
THE REVEAL: Once I am done taking your child's pictures and being weird and silly and goofy, I will load those images to my editing software and edit 5+ images. They will be put into your own password-protected online gallery for viewing and purchasing. I will email you an easy-to-follow link to your gallery about 1 week after our session. This link will have your gallery password attached to it and any instructions on how to navigate through your gallery and ordering process.
You will see many great products in this gallery to which you can purchase right there! If there is a product that you don't see that you've seen in other places, please let me know. I can order just about anything!
