Mini Photo Sessions

Due to popular demand, the website is accepting reservations again and two more days (10/1 and 10/2) were added! Book your sessions by Tuesday, 9/29.

Already had your session? Share your photos on social media with #RonAntonelliForOPS or
tag Ron on Instagram @RonAntonelliPhotography

Book your session here: https://ronantonelli.com/ops


Local photographer Ron Antonelli built a mini photo studio just for us. This studio, which is covered by a canopy and located on the lawn of OPS (on the Center Street side of the building), allows him to:

  1. Take portraits of your OPS Student(s)
  2. Turn the studio over to you so you can take additional portraits, sibling photos and family photos with a remote clicker
  3. Families can see the photos as they are taken on a screen which is part of his OPS studio

These mini photo sessions are 10 minutes long and you will receive 20 – 40 digital copies a few weeks after your shoot.  These photos are yours to download.

Please note that families should not book sessions during a time when their child is supposed to be in school.

Finally, a huge thank you to Ron for his efforts!  He is donating a portion of every session fee to the PTA, which will be used for programming this year.
