If you run a playgroup or nursery and would like to offer the parents of your children something different look no further. A photographer will spend a day or two taking photographs. We don't use lights or backgrounds (as you would normally expect) but photograph the children having fun in their usual environment. It makes a big difference with the quieter children as they are under no pressure to sit and give the usual cheesy grin. They get quite used to us being around and we can usually get great shots of them.
We attend the nursery for two or three evenings when the parents arrive to pick their children up to take orders. One benefit of this is that the staff don't need to get involved in any of the administration often associated with nursery photography.
Packages can be purchased for as little as £19.95 and we have a whole host of extra products, calendars and keyrings, for example, to tempt the parents with. Of course we pay a commission to the nursery on a percentage basis.
