    These would be extremely helpful in my new business. I think this is a market that is ready for a twist on the traditional school portraits. Thanks!

  2. Stacey Panassidi on January 20, 2010 at 9:12 am

    I would love to add this aspect to my photography business and I think this would help me start down that road. Very excited to check it out!

  3. Sarah on January 20, 2010 at 9:16 am

    I am just starting out and want to start on the right foot. With such a high new business failure rate, I feel that learning from people that have established business plans and ideas would give me an edge up.

  4. Erica on January 20, 2010 at 9:20 am

    What a great giveaway! It would be a great way to branch out into a different aspect of my photography business. Thanks so much!

    These products look amazing! I am starting a new business and this would be a fun segment to work with!!

  7. karen gunton on January 20, 2010 at 9:22 am

    i was just telling a photographer friend how great the ‘get schooled’ guest post was yesterday. this giveaway is so perfect – i am gearing up to do a second shoot at my daughter’s preschool next term and this information would be so fantastic! i am particularly interested in seeing the ‘it’s picture day!’ book template. =)

  8. emily anderson on January 20, 2010 at 9:26 am

    oh my goodness! i want to win so bad…i was so inspired by courtney’s school post yesterday…would love this!!emily

  9. Shuva Rahim on January 20, 2010 at 9:27 am

    These products would allow me to produce some structure in my marketing materials as well as how I market – especially in areas that are looking for something new and different.

  10. Chris Whitcomb on January 20, 2010 at 9:27 am

    I am super excited about winning these fantastic guides to help our business move into the boutique school photography market. We have a ton of private schools and home schoolers here and this would so help me to provide for them the type of images those discerning clients demand.

  11. Marci on January 20, 2010 at 9:28 am

    Thanks again for another awesome giveaway! This is such a great concept. I can’t tell you how many people complain about the standard school pics (they haven’t changed in 40+ years!) and I am pretty sure our preschool programs in the area do not have a portrait program at all. This concept would also work great for large day care centers. Thanks MCP!!

  12. Tammy Ward on January 20, 2010 at 9:32 am

    Oh would love to know the ins and outs on getting into school portraiture, especially school portraits with style. very excited, thanks so much!

  13. Marti on January 20, 2010 at 9:33 am

    We just had a local Charter School approved and my daughter will be attending next year. Before I read the Get Schooled post yesterday I was thinking about emailing the principal to put my photography services on her radar. This would be a perfect addition to my business, I am so excited about the possibility of providing higher quality school photos!

  14. Sue Benson on January 20, 2010 at 9:35 am

    Great giveway! An eye opener for this market. My finger are crossed.

  15. monica on January 20, 2010 at 9:39 am

  18. Judith on January 20, 2010 at 9:49 am

    wow, this is fantastic, I’ve always wanted to add this to my genre and this would be a great help.

  19. Clair on January 20, 2010 at 9:49 am

    I just fumbled through a round of school photos for a homeschool academy in the fall. I would LOVE to get some of the get schooled info to help me do better in the spring. Thanks.

  20. rachael on January 20, 2010 at 9:52 am

    this would help my business tremendously! there are a lot of photographers in my market and this would help me establish a new line of what i can offer as well as introducing me to multiple new potential clients. it could change my business!

  21. Melissa Abbey on January 20, 2010 at 9:54 am

    It’s been suggested by fellow parents that I start doing into school portraiture. With my own children in the local schools, I have contacts that would help me get my foot in the door. This would certainly help by providing a roadmap to successfully accomplish this goal and get the word out in this area which is saturated with schools.

  22. Melissa Abbey on January 20, 2010 at 9:57 am

    I left this on my facebook page: Melissa Reyes-Abbey suggests you check out https://mcpactions.com/blog/2010/01/20/contest-win-get-schooled-portraiture-guides-templates-1100-in-prizes/#comment-25025 for a great contest give-away for school portraiture guides!

  27. Nicole Chryst on January 20, 2010 at 10:01 am

    I’d love to win this awesome contest! School Portraiture is a great way to grow my business, especially at my daughter’s private school – her school portraits are always miserable! I’d love to be able to give parents something they’re PROUD to hang on their walls.

  28. Melissa Abbey on January 20, 2010 at 10:07 am

  30. Angel Pope on January 20, 2010 at 10:12 am

    I think these products would help my business as I have recently moved to NE Kentucky. What I have observed in this area is that people will not let the economy stop them from spending money on photos of their children. The people here seem to cherish the memories and will give up other “luxury” items before they will pass on purchasing photos. But I’ve also noticed that the quality of photos offered aren’t always the best. I know I didn’t want to buy my own child’s school portraits because they were so posed looking and it just didn’t look like her. I think if I could hone in on the skills that it takes to create quality school photos then I will have cornered this market.I’ve recently gone from working outside the home to staying home and am leaning on my photography now as a business rather than just a hobby. That being said, any help I can get without having to invest money is like winning the lottery for me! I don’t want money, just knowledge!!! 😉

  31. Angel Pope on January 20, 2010 at 10:15 am

    Hi, This package is great!!! I feel like I am re-inventing the wheel every time I prepare my marketing materials for school photos. OH BOY, I’d love to won this one!!! I think it would save me a ton of time and a great deal of angst.

  35. Bailey on January 20, 2010 at 10:19 am

    Since I just started building my business I have been thinking about way s to meet more families. Since my son goes to a smaller Private school, I know this is avenue I could undertake WITH THE RIGHT PREPARATION. This is just what I would need to get this off the ground!

  36. karen gunton on January 20, 2010 at 10:23 am

  37. Jenny on January 20, 2010 at 10:24 am

    I am just starting out by taking photos of the children in my SAHM Club. This would help me get more tips to better myself and to help me get started when I am ready to make the jump.

  38. Rebecca Timberlake on January 20, 2010 at 10:26 am

    How fabulous! I have been trying to figure out how to get into the private schools in my area, so this guide would be a huge leap forward for me. I am looking forward to seeing all of the amazing tips and tricks that you have come up with.

  39. jill t on January 20, 2010 at 10:26 am

  52. Wendy on January 20, 2010 at 11:00 am

    I have been doing school portraits for homeschoolers and realize I need some help and direction. This would be perfect!

  53. Melissa Dunne on January 20, 2010 at 11:01 am

    I definitely believe everything happens for a reason. Last week my friend brought up her kids preschool pictures and how awful they were, so we started talking about me contacting preschools to do thier school pictures and this put the idea in my head. Two days later I read the MCP blog post about the Get Schooled Guide, and the very next day a friend contacted me out of the blue from her preschool that she runs and asked me if I did school pictures! It made the hairs on my head stand up because it was just all laid out right before my eyes! I am so excited about this venture and know that it will be a great way branch out in my photography business. I would love to win these guides, because I definitely need some direction on where to begin! Thanks so much for the contest!

    I moved to a new place last year and have been trying to establish myself here. I did one preschool and really enjoyed it. It was great to receive such great feedback and get some business from that day. I want to pursue more schools but haven’t really known how to go about doing that. This would be great!

  57. Heidi Trejo on January 20, 2010 at 11:06 am

    I have been wanting to get into school pictures for a while and this would help me finally do it.

    I left several “blog loves” on my fellow photographer’s blog this morning.

  62. Brianna on January 20, 2010 at 11:12 am

    This is an area of photography that I have avoided because it seemed too intimidating and overwhelming. Not to mention that school portraits did not fit into my style. I am so excited about getting into this area now!

  63. Evie on January 20, 2010 at 11:12 am

    I have been having a lot of trouble getting into this business here in my city and this guide seems as though it could really be a huge leg-up on how to break into this market.

  64. Amber Spratling on January 20, 2010 at 11:13 am

    I would LOVE to get the get schooled collection! I live in a small town and do alot of the preschools and school functons, I constantly try to come up with ways to not sacrifice my quaility to “school pictures”. Sounds like this is a great resource!

  65. Angie Kosa on January 20, 2010 at 11:14 am

    This is a super exciting opportunity! I think the Get Schooled guides and blog would take my new business into a whole new and fun direction. It would be such a blessing to learn from her expertise and wisdom! Thanks for doing this!

  66. David Bier on January 20, 2010 at 11:15 am

    This is perfect timing for me. After seeing the generic rubbish produced by my son’s nursery, I went in a couple of days ago, spoke to the manager…and I am now their photographer for this year! Having some advice on how to make my natural style work in a high volume situation like a nursery would help all the parents get the memories they deserve…and would also help me get my new business off the ground.

  67. Heidi Trejo on January 20, 2010 at 11:16 am

    I gave a little blog love to http://www.tammyward.com/blog/?p=447&cpage=1#comment-207 check out her amazing Alice in Wonderland set up.

    Tweeted the contest too!Funny story… a friend’s son got his school picture proofs back with two “different” poses, as they promised. Only thing was they flipped the picture to get the second pose! Hilarious. And they thought she wouldn’t notice?!?! LOL.

  69. Angie Kosa on January 20, 2010 at 11:25 am

    I had fun spreading some blog love…. It is always fun to visit and hug my fellow shutterbugs! Thanks for making this part of the contest!

  70. Wendy Wilson on January 20, 2010 at 11:27 am

    I would love to have these as i love doing preschool pictures and would like to have most of my business doing school portraits. All it takes is a few minutes getting that great picture, parents are happy but more importantly that school picture may be the only picture that child get professionally all year why not make it great. Would love to have new ideas so that I can come back with something a little different each year.

  71. Wendy on January 20, 2010 at 11:27 am

  92. Shannon Nicholson on January 20, 2010 at 11:54 am

    What a terrific product! I wouldn’t have been confident to take a job like shcool portraits until I seen the amazing packages you offer. It takes all the guess work out of it and makes it fun!

  93. Jennifer Ashcroft on January 20, 2010 at 11:55 am

    This would be a dream come true. I actively photography the kids at my son’s day-care. However, I am no where near organized, I lack a good work flow, pricing, and package. I desperately need this.

  94. Kathleen on January 20, 2010 at 11:55 am

    I’m starting out, and I think this is a great way to get new clients. We are also a military family, so I think this would help me when we move to a new town to set up there.

  95. Shannon Nicholson on January 20, 2010 at 11:56 am

    I am so excited by your contest that I forwareded the contest to two photographer’s I know on Facebook! Thanks!

  96. Kara Jensen on January 20, 2010 at 11:57 am

    This is such a genious idea, I can’t believe it! I think these tools can help me in ways I never dreamed of. I’ve already contacted people to map out their interest in this type of school portraiture, and the response I’ve gotten is really exciting! I live around a lot of preschools. I would LOVE to make this a branch of my photography seeing as how I’m still getting off the ground, this is just my ticket. I plan to do this!

    I hate typical school portaits! I’ve often thought they should hire me when I get my son’s daycare pics. This would help tremendously!!

    We have a ton of private schools around here and the pics that my kids have brought home are nothing exciting… I’d love to use this as a baseline to get my foot in the door and shake up the local competition. I think my personal style will resonate with the parents better than what they are currently being offered.

    I think all the products are very great tools!!! I launched my photography business in Sept. 09 and to this day I don’t have a solid client base. I am lucky if I get one person in a 3 month span. I Have tried everything I have learned but still I think I would need something more edgy, new and fresh. The school portraiture guide and marketing kit is something that would benefit me and shape me into the photographer I dream about..

    I have been following you on facebook and your blog for awhile now. I love your blog and all of your wonderful tips. You have had some great contests, but this one is the first one I have entered. I really NEED this kit. I am a beginning photographer and I am very passionate about capturing precious moments for my clients to treasure forever. I, like Courtney have the disadvantage of living in a new place and therefore lack the social networking groups to get my business off the ground. I have considered school portraiture, but I have no idea how to set it all up. I would LOVE to win this set!!! Thank you for the opportunity!

This looks like a FANTASTIC way to do it! What a great idea to share and I am looking forward to reading this new guide-my 2 passions, photogrpahy and kids!

    I’m taking a “Launching Your Photography” business class this semester, working on my photography, and collecting as much as I can about different types of services to offer. The class covers obvious services – weddings and family portraits – but it doesn’t cover the details of offering school pictures. So this might be the perfect reading to supplement my studies!

    on the spur of the moment today I decided to stop in at one of my favorite kids boutiques for a quick peek and I ran into a woman that I had been thinking about lately….. she and I worked together at IKEA almost 10 years ago and I alway wondered what had to her….. I walked into Dragon Lilies and she was right there… carrying her 4 month old son Chase….. we did the usual…. how are you? how many kids do you have now? what are you up to these days….. funny thing is many of our big answers were similar…. 4 kids each and each stretching our photography creativity…. Caylee is a creative photographer and you can see her lovely portrait work here…. http://cayleesecretanphotography.blogspot.com/2010/01/photobucket.html

    living near a small rural community and having many others nearby I often get asked to take pre-school or sport or dance photos and I am not quite sure how to be most efficient with this…. I think the “Get Schooled” portaiture guides would “guide” me in the right direction!

Two years ago it was going pretty good, but my husband made a decision that moving would be best for us and since then it has been very hard building my business in a new town. Anything to inspire me and get me going will be a blessing!!!

    I am just getting started in portrait photography and I love taking pictures of kids of all ages. I could really use any help I can get as posing is not my natural strength. I previously photographed sporting events, so no posing needed. Any guides I can get will help me improve and take better pictures! Thank you!

    How awesome! I’d love to win because I think so many schools go the “traditional” route and it would be awesome to break into them with custom photography! I just don’t know where to start. 🙂

  423. Monica Dyer on January 22, 2010 at 12:56 am

    I’d love to win this prize! I have photographed one preschool, and while I did get through it, there is much I still need to learn. The “Get Schooled” guide looks very comprehensive and well put together!

    The schools in our area have one company who does all the portraits. Every childs image looks the same. These products would be a great guide on helping me take my ability into the schools for a fresh and exciting change to the traditional idea of school portraits.

    Hi there! I would love to win because this packet could really help kick start my photography business! And I very much need that PUSH in order to justify quitting my dayjob. My two children go to daycare and their school pictures are just horrible! I hate buying them. But the ideas on the Get schooled Blog are brilliant! I would buy those photos in a heart beat! And feel strongly that most of the other parents would too! If I could pull that off I know that would give me the “push” I need to finally be free of the torture I call an 8-5. Please pick me! Save me from this cubicle!!!Jenny McCann

    These would be great! I have worked in a special needs preschool for 20 years. Our parents always want “school pictures” of their preschooler. Unfortunately, most school photograhers don’t have the time or experience to “work” with our little ones to get them to respond for a great photo. Most seem to get annoyed when we try to help them out.Thanks a bunch!

    oh my! this would really help me get my non-profit up and running! so many youth athletes could use financial support so they can participate in little league and other sports…..fingers crossed!
