We have had several Kiddie Academy families turn into C. Gonzalez Photography portrait clients. We love working with our Kiddie Academy families in the school portrait setting and in a more personalized setting, to capture and tell their family story through imagery.

Digital file orders will be delivered electronically once the payment has cleared, please allow up to 30 minutes to receive your download link via e-mail.
What is your philosophy on digital negatives?
I firmly believe that it's important to have your session images archived and preserved digitally. In my opinion we are long past the times of purchasing just an 8x10 print here and a 5x7 print there. Digital negatives are in high demand and we all want to share them with friends and family via email and social networking sites, as well as preserve them for longevity. Photographs gain value over time. Digital archiving and preservation has really become so simple and affordable. I walk all of my clients through the best ways to archive, print and share digital files. For those reasons, I offer high resolution digital negatives.
These images are captured in a short time period with your child. Due to the scheduling arranged with the school, I have less than three minutes with each student. I do my best to capture a variety of expressions and conjure authenticity from your son or daughter during this time. Some children are naturally more comfortable than others when it comes to photographs. Each child in the gallery has multiple proof options. Some may have more than others. I do not believe in forcing a child to "perform" just for the sake of capturing "the shot" - but rather I do my best to work with your child, make them comfortable, and enjoy that short minute or two we have. Please understand that all images are shot with the goal of being "real" - who they are in that moment. Some laugh, some cry, some stand stoic and pensive, some bounce around and giggle... and I attempt to artistically capture all of this. The options included in the gallery of your son or daughter will be the best shots I have on file and I hope you enjoy each of them! Thank you for your understanding.
