Hello JEM families

I'm Heidi of Heidi Harting Photography.

I am so excited to be creating portraits of your children at the barn this spring. These won't be traditional school pictures because JEM is no ordinary school. The portraits will capture the magic and spirit of the farm, students and animals. My goal is to deliver a beautiful portrait of your child that you will treasure not just this school year, but always.

JEM Learning Spring Portraits June 5th & June 6th!

Kids + Animals = Something Super Special

Each child will be photographed with his/or her favorite barnyard friend in a safe and supervised way for both the student and animal. The three images below are representational of what our goal is for each student.

Thanks to Nora for being our model :)

Photo Tips

The most important thing is to send your child off to school with a smile, we will take care of the rest!

What to Wear

  • Consider the spirit of the farm and how you want remember this time in your child's life.
  • Avoid large logos that detract from your beautiful child's face.
  • The day may be chilly so be sure and include a sweater/jean jacket, etc... that will compliment the outfit.


  • Please send your child to school with their hair styled as you/they like it.
  • We do not restyle hair but with a fresh comb will do our best to take care of fly-aways.


  • We can reduce glare but transition lenses (light to dark) will look like dark sunglasses. Please send an alternative option or consider no glasses.

What Else

  • Hands will show so be mindful of chipped nail polish. This will not be retouched.
  • Temporary tattoos - so cute but if you don't want it in the photo, please remove before picture day :)

Sibling Portraits

Siblings will be photographed on portrait day. Consider outfits that compliment each other.

What if it rains on Portrait Day?

You will be notified by the school as early as possible if the weather is not suitable for Portrait Day and given the new date.

What if my child has blemishes?

All images are lightly retouched at no additional charge when necessary so that you will receive a portrait that you will cherish forever.

What if my child is absent?

Don't worry! Every child will be photographed.

Do you offer make-up days?

I do my very best to capture your child's personality and typically do that in one if not all the poses. You will have several images of your child to select from. If that expectation has not been met, then of course I will rephotograph your child. My goal is to deliver a beautiful portrait that you will treasure forever.
