Pop-Up K-11 School Portraits Experience with Anna Cillan Photography

The Pop-Up K-11 School Portrait  Experience

Date: Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020

Location: Meet by UIC Fields South Entrance (Check back for location update)

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. (Face coverings required and to be removed during your session).  Each student will have a scheduled 15 min session with me and will choose up to 2 poses (with the help of mom or dad).  Each student will receive a set of prints that will be available for pickup from my home studio within 5 days from the event.

Total Cost per student: $75 or $125 if you’d like to purchase the upgrade option.  Payment is due at  booking to confirm your session slot.  This is a nonrefundable event.  If slots fill up fast, please inquire with me at anna@annacillan.com to open up more slots.

Now accepting payments via Zelle (anna@annacillan.com) or Venmo (@atcphoto).  Upon booking, please indicate your child’s name, school and grade in the notes of your payment.

Anna was an absolute joy to work with, made me completely comfortable and kept me laughing the whole time. As for the pictures, they completely blew my mind! She is talented beyond belief and I would absolutely recommend her for any of your photography needs. Incredible work.

But what about our Seniors?

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 $350+.  Click here for more details on the Senior Experience and the Senior Model Team that focuses on meeting new friends and helping community.

and don’t you forget it.  I would love for the opportunity to direct and capture you being the most authentic version of you.  I know the lights and camera gear can be intimidating, but never fear, it’s just me, a friend that may make you share in a few belly laughs throughout your session.

Oh did I say that I can sing too?  How well you ask?  That’s for me to know and you to find out.

"I love her creative ideas and she gives great direction.”

I have truly enjoyed working with Anna! She is so easy to work with. I love her creative ideas and she gives great direction. We have done headshot, glamour, street, and fashion photography and she was a pro at all of these. I'd definitely recommend working with her!
