with a Smile
Here at Lifetime of Clicks Photography we specialize in working with children! We create school portraits for children and staff in many schools and daycare centers in the Katy and Greater Houston area.
We are a little different than other school photography companies because we are a local, small business and you get personalized service from us. You will always work with Kelly, the owner and photographer of Lifetime of Clicks. Kelly has worked with children her entire photography career and gets them to smile every time! Read a little more below about how our process works.
We offer many different types of sessions for our school portraits. We only use our backdrops for one season, so you never have to worry about getting a repeat backdrop for a child that has taken their school photos with us before. Here are some examples of different sessions we offer:
Fall: We can do a traditional back-to-school portrait or with a seasonal fall look.
Christmas: Some of our schools love this option so parents can use them in Christmas cards!
Spring: These range from bright and colorful to springy and green. This time of year is when we usually do class photos as well.
Graduation: For those of you with students moving up to Kindergarten we do graduation portraits!
Yearbook: If you’re looking for a more classic yearbook style photo for your students, we also offer the traditional blue backdrop.
Outdoor: Do you have a fantastic outdoor space you want to showcase in your school pictures? We love to photograph children in their natural environment.
Introducing the Heirloom Portrait: These are a unique style of school portraits, and a perfectly timeless photograph for parents to cherish. These are great for any early age – infants through elementary school.
Sample images coming soon!
Our portrait packages are fully customizable to your school, or you can choose to go with our typical package set. We offer prints in all sizes, including wallets, 3.5×5 | 5×7 | 8×10. We also offer a variety of trinkets that we can add to the order forms for your school. These items include magnets, calendars, ID cards, coffee mugs, and ornaments. We discuss which options you would like to offer your families before we create the order form for your school.
Here's how it works:
Once your school picture dates are booked on the calendar the process starts. We send you a sample image of the backdrop before your scheduled date to share with parents. Kelly and her assistant come to your school on picture day. It takes about 30 minutes to set up, and then the fun begins! Once we photograph all the children we head back to our studio where we get all the portraits edited and an order form (including a proof image) is printed for each child. We deliver the order forms back to the school within a couple of days, and you distribute them to the parents. The due date listed on the form is set based on what the school administration decides with our input. We come pick up the order forms the day after the due date and process everything. About a week later we deliver the prints to your school to distribute to the parents and the process is done!
We like to keep things simple so there is no room for error or technological difficulties that may happen with an online ordering system. We want to make sure each parent can see their image, order exactly what they want, and know their payment is in good hands.
We also have an option for schools that do not want to use order forms. We print several sizes of all the students’ portraits and come to your school to sell them in-person one day. On that day, parents purchase the sheets they would like and either Kelly or her assistant take the payments. After that day, the parents have the option to contact the studio directly to purchase. *Note: trinkets items are not available with this sales option.

Hey, I’m Kelly!
HOUSTON NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER
If you’re anything like me you want to be the kind of mom that celebrates each season of your family. As a Houston newborn photographer, to me that means capturing the important milestones with portraits you and your family can enjoy for a lifetime.
The reality is, even though you want beautiful portraits, it’s hard to enjoy the process when you know how much energy it will take to get everyone else in the family ready. Inevitably you end up feeling frustrated and stressed instead of confident and beautiful.
As a mom of two boys, I understand how much effort it takes. I also understand how quickly life can change.
After I delivered my second son and spent 4 days in ICU with congestive heart failure the reality of how quickly life can change, good or bad, hit me. That experience solidified how important it is to capture milestones before they pass.
That’s why I’ve helped hundreds of Houston women remove the stress and have an enjoyable portrait experience. We handle all the details from wardrobe styling, hair, and makeup, to installing finished portrait art in your home. All you have to do is show up.
I believe every mom deserves a portrait experience that is just as incredible as the finished artwork.

You don’t have to tolerate stressful photo sessions to get great portraits.
Experience what it’s like to make great memories as a family while you feel confident in front of the camera. Then get beautiful portrait art to enjoy in your home every day.
