Host your Pop-Up K-11 School Portraits Experience

The Pop-Up K-11 School Portrait  Experience!

Gone are the days of actually attending class IN PERSON and we are learning virtually from the comforts of our own homes. But what does this mean for everything that happened on campus like School Photos!  (slight freakout moment ensues).

For a limited time, I’m offering up kids from K-11 the opportunity to take school photos from a not so school like environment and in open air socially distant setting that a family will host. Each student will have a scheduled 15 min session with me and will choose up to 3 poses (with the help of mom or dad).  Each student will receive a set of prints that will be delivered to the Host family to distribute. (see below)  

Total Cost per student: $70 due at  booking to confirm your session slot.  Price is reduced to $65 if there are more than 15 students booked. 

*Accepting payments via Zelle ( or Venmo (@atcphoto).  Cash or Check payable to Anna Cillan and submitted to your host.

Host Qualification: To qualify to host, you have proof of an open space reserved in your name approximately 10×10 feet for the photography gear in addition to space where at least 5 people can be standing in a socially distant manner.  Also minimum of 5 students to help cover the photographer’s time and travel with camera gear. If less than 5 students, host is subject to pay the balance of $350 to the photographer. 

Once you qualify, I’ll create you a host page to distribute to your network of friends/family and you will help me coordinate the scheduling for the desired date.

**If you would like to host your own popup school portrait or you know someone who would want to host please meet the details to qualify and submit a request in the form below.

The Senior Experience

The Senior Experience Sessions are some of my most creative and meaningful sessions. I am a 6 time Auntie and I absolutely adore my nieces and nephews and to continue to see them grow and develop their own personalities is just incredible.  I think to the day they become a Senior in high school and just know that I’ll look back and think where has the time gone. 

This is why these sessions are extra special. These sessions are designed to tap into your Seniors personality and quirks and funny giggles and noises that they make when nervous.  These photos capture your son or daughter at their finest, funniest and dearest and are images for you to enjoy for a lifetime.  My own mother has my senior photo up on her wall and lets just say its been a while since that photo was taken.

I have 3 Incredible sessions that is tailored to all varying budgets and you can even upgrade at anytime before your session is over. Sessions starting as low as $450+.  Inquire with me today to talk through your Senior Experience Session.  

Anna's Senior Model Program

Ok so about the Senior Model Program.  This is a program that is near and dear to my heart that combines building new relationships with friends from other schools along with volunteering for Chicagoland organizations in need of a few helping hands.  

So that was a mouthful can you explain further? Yes I can!

The Senior Model program is for bright, energetic and out-going Seniors throughout the Chicagoland area of the 2021,2022 and 2023 Classes. So you sophomores and juniors this is for you too!  Being a part of the Anna Cillan Photography program is more than a single portrait session, you will get an Epic Senior Portrait Experience and will belong to an exclusive group of other Senior Models that will have several opportunities to be photographed throughout the Chicagoland area and participate in socially distant events to the serve the community and be used in promotional ads and be eligible to model for any upcoming photography workshops or conferences. Your participation level is up to you but I can tell you that the more you participate, the more images of varying looks you’ll have to choose from. Some Seniors just want a super fantastic deal on the session fee and that works for me! You will have plenty of photos to choose from in your final package order as your portfolio grows each time you participate in the shoots.  

The list of service projects is growing but I can tell you that I’m looking into places that are really thoughtful and caring for community and follow a strict social distancing guidelines.  One being the Greater Chicago Food Depository where we will go and pack food for families in need.  

This is by application only and if accepted, your time as a Senior Model starts as soon as I receive your signed contract and $350 deposit towards your Senior Portrait Package.  After your commitment to being a part of the Anna Cillan Photography Senior Model team, we’ll schedule your introductory portrait session.  At this point you are eligible to participate in any shoots where I need senior models for promotional and creative shoots, service projects and social activities!  So many ideas! I’ll create a group on Facebook to communicate all events to the team.

Spaces are limited as I’m limiting this to 15-20 Senior Models per graduating year and by school too.  If you submit an application but are not selected due to the limit from each school being met, you will receive a credit of $100 to use towards your Senior session.

You will have two Senior Model Experience Packages to choose from: 

The Influencer Model ($1475 with $700 print credit) 

The Mod Squad Model ($2149 with $950 print credit).  

Both of these experience packages automatically include 20% off any a la carte item and 15% off the Print Collections. You’ll also receive a photo gallery to download your digital images for printing up to 5×7 and for every Senior you refer you’ll receive print credit AND the initial deposit of $350 goes toward the experience package you choose.
