Bringing Something New to School Photography

We Play With The Kids Using Bubbles & Balls To Get The Best Smiles
We Use Props to Give a Different Photography Style
Hi, thank you for letting us introduce ourselves. We are Lawson Wright Studios, an independent photography studio based in the centre of Wakefield and our aim is to bring something new to your school photography and take away as much of the admin after photo day as we can!

We specialise in children’s portrait photography and work closely with a number of nurseries, play centres and playgroups as well as schools in the West Yorkshire area on top of running our busy studio. We have worked hard to successfully build long term relationships with our clients as they know we put maximum effort into the shoots to get the best results for their parents. Below are the key areas of how we operate and how we can bring something new to your photo day which we hope will bring you the services, quality and support you need to make photo day fun!

It's All About Having Fun!

Lots of parents have told us that they are bored of the same old school photos and they are frustrated with the lack of choice and we have taken all this into account. We have now developed a system and style that will give parents what they want, by bringing our studio attitude to your school, we put everything we can into each shoot, playing and laughing with the children to get the big smiles and relaxed, professional studio quality shots and by using different props to get the variety we can now bring something new and some choice to school photos!
We really enjoy bringing out the children’s personalities to capture those unique images for parents. It’s all about having fun! We will play with balls, bubbles, pull faces and make silly noises; everything that children love, so that they are relaxed and join in. We photograph each child one at a time, unless there are siblings that want to be photographed together and get at least 3 images per child so that parents have as much choice as possible. We photograph in an area designated by you and aim to cause minimal disruption to your school and staff on the day.
We also understand that you have a school to run and not a photography studio which is why we try to take as much of the admin after the shoot away from you and your staff leaving you to get on with running your school! Lots of staff have told us in the past that photo day can be a pain, having to deal with customer enquiries, dealing with orders and handling cash, so we have put a system in place that will take all the work out of your hands. On the day all we ask is that you let us in and help organise the kids for the photo shoots, we will do the rest after that.

Viewing and ordering

Once we've gone your job is just about done!

    • No More Dealing With Orders & Chasing Money

    • Easy Online Viewing & Ordering

    • Parents Can Contact Us Direct With Any Queries

    • We Send Orders Direct To Parents

    • No Late Ordering Fees

Once we have gone your part is just about done, all we ask is that you hand out the preview sheets to parents and we'll do the rest! We will first head back to the studio to edit the images and a few days later we will return with all the image preview sheets for you to hand out to parents. On the preview sheet is all the thumbnail images from the shoot that are available to order, a price list and a unique code to view the images online

Our state of the art website makes viewing and ordering a doddle! All parents can view the images on the secure area of the our site by using their own unique and secure code which is provided on their preview sheet with all instructions on how to use it. Once the images have been viewed the parents can then place orders for any prints or packages and pay online or they can call us directly at the studio where we can take an order over the phone, which makes it a nice and easy and a much more relaxing way to view the images and place an order than ever before.

When we receive the order we then post the prints direct to the parent’s home address, this means that you no longer need to deal with the distribution of orders and with the collection of payments or any queries, this is all done directly through the studio however we do get asked by customers if they can collect from School from time to time. You can view our online ordering system Here.
