What is Lion & Cub Boutique School Portraiture?

Lion & Cub Boutique School Portraiture
School photos… two simple words that can inspire fear and dread – but it doesn’t need to be this way. In fact, school photos can be an incredible way to chart your child’s journey through life, dimples, freckles, big cheesy grins and all.

Lion & Cub is about individuality and our school portraiture reflects this. We believe that each child deserves to shine, so we encourage them to be themselves and we create portraits that capture a glimpse of who they are at this moment in time.

Do you sell digital downloads / digital files?

Yes! You can choose to purchase individual files or purchase all of your child’s photos at a reduced rate. Digital files are emailed to you directly after purchase.

Do you photograph siblings?

Absolutely. If more than one child attends the school, the kids can be photographed together at lunchtime, which is when we can bring a pre-schooler over to the big school to join his or her sibling.

What happens during the session?

Lion & Cub takes the time to spend a few minutes with each child, so we can get to know them a bit and make them feel comfortable with us. We then take a number of shots that best reflect their personality in a variety of set-ups and poses, including incorporating school-themed props and chairs and one traditional close-up headshot.


How long does it take for portraits to arrive?

Items will arrive at the school within four weeks of the final order date. If a parent or family member has chosen to have an order shipped directly to them, the portraits will be shipped within two weeks of the final order date.

Can Grandparents & other extended family members purchase prints?

One of the bonuses of an online gallery is that anyone in your family to whom you give the password can place an order. If your family members are interstate, they can choose to have their orders posted directly to them.


When do I need to pay for pictures?

You never have to pre-pay for your child’s photos. This stylish take on school photos is mirrored by a contemporary ordering system too – rather than being offered a packet of pre-paid prints selected on your behalf, choose images of your child from an online gallery and we’ll get them professionally printed on archival paper, with digital files, canvases and enlargements all available too.

What types of payment are accepted?

Online ordering accepts all major credit cards.
