Fine Art School Portraits - pepitas Preschool

School portrait day - October 16th and 17th, 2019

Gaby Cavalcanti Photography will be doing school portraits at Pepitas Bilingual preschool on Wednesday, October 16th and Thursday October 17th. Here are a few suggestions/tips on how to help prepare your child for the day, as well as, information of our school photography process.

before picture day

1. Make sure your child gets a good night's sleep. A well rested child is a happy child ;)

2. Feed your child a nutritious breakfast and remember to wash that yummy breakfast off their face! 

3. Have them help you select their clothes ahead of time, chances are, if they are excited about what they are wearing, they will have more fun during portrait time. However, please keep in mind that: 

The best colors for pictures are bright but try to avoid pure white.

Please avoid large logos, hoodies, or sweatshirts.

Clothing that shows off lovely detail in the shoulder area looks great in photographs.

Jewelry can be distracting, our advice is to avoid necklaces or thick bracelets.

4. Gaby Cavalcanti Photography is also offering sibling portrait opportunities during picture day. If you would like a sibling portrait, please contact your school administration by October 14th.

on picture day

Gaby Cavalcanti Photography will be on campus on October 16th and 17th starting at 9am.

All children who attend school on portrait day will be photographed.

We will be working individually with every child, for about 2-3 mins.

Instead of a school class photo, Gaby Cavalcanti Photography offers a class photo composite, which is a compilation of all the best shots of every child organized by class with their name under his/her photo. It's a beautiful alternative to the traditional class photo.

Sibling photos will be taken during specific times, most likely during drop off, or pick up. We ask that you let your school office know when you arrive with any siblings that will be photographed.

after picture day

Gaby Cavalcanti will select the best 3-5 photographs of your child(dren)

Selected photographs will be posted to an online gallery 4 weeks after school portrait day.

You will receive an email with access to your child's gallery where you can complete your photo order online. Photo galleries will be available for 15 days.

if you have additional questions, please send an email to
