FINE ART SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHY
We are a local business based in Old Town Alexandria. Our goal is to provide a custom, experience to all families attending the schools who have chosen Lisa Scontras Fine Art School Photography.
Our service is personal and professional. Unlike large, corporate photography operations, we only take on a few select schools so that we can provide superior customer service and artistic, timeless and classic images.
We aim to capture the essence of the children in front of the camera. We will never force a smile but always welcome one. No awkward poses or faces, just the authentic child on the day. The results are genuine and timeless portraits. We provide a light and fun experience for your children and take pride in providing an environment where the children can relax and be themselves, naturally.
"I hired Lisa to take school portraits of our preschool aged students this fall, and the results were stunning. She is a master of natural light photography and puts her subjects at ease with her calm and kind demeanor. She was responsive, professional, and so easy to work with. I have already booked her for next year!"

"Lisa was wonderful to work with as a small preschool. Not only are her pictures breathtaking, she is well organized and helped provide us with everything we needed before and after our picture day. The students loved her and really warmed to her, you can tell that through the quality of the photos. I cannot say enough good things about Lisa and her work, she is amazing and you will never be disappointed working with her!"
