About Us

Preschool Photography

At Busy Bee Portraits, we’re passionate about creating high-quality studio portraits that capture the essence of childhood. With over 20 years of experience, our team is dedicated to making every photo session a joyful and memorable experience.

Our approach is all about fun, playfulness, and sometimes a touch of silliness, because we believe that genuine smiles make the best portraits. Each child receives personalized attention to ensure we capture their unique personality and spirit.

We pride ourselves on delivering not just great photos, but also exceptional service. From our courteous and respectful treatment of children, staff, and parents to our commitment to honesty, integrity, and professionalism, we go above and beyond to exceed our clients’ expectations.

Here’s what sets us apart:

  • Individualized sessions: We photograph each child individually, with the option for sibling portraits that parents love.
  • Quality time: We spend several minutes with each child to ensure we get the best shots possible.
  • Variety of images: A typical proof set includes four images, giving parents plenty of options to choose from.
  • Convenient ordering: Parents receive a private online gallery to view and order their portraits at their convenience.
  • Affordable packages: Our packages start at just $29, making professional portraits accessible to all families.
  • Customization: Work with your photographer to choose the perfect background color for your portraits.
  • Special discounts: Staff’s children receive a 50% discount off their entire order as a token of appreciation.
