About Us

MugsyClicks School Photography was established in 1993, when photographer Linda J. Russell first
discovered "school is a great place to photograph kids!" "As a parent and photographer I saw the
opportunity to bring new life to an industry that had turned photography into a generic commodity product
focused on price and school service products at the expense of our children." Linda's commitment to
bringing the local child photographer back into the schools is rooted in a belief that all children deserve to
have a quality portrait and since 2006 she has focused entirely on creating a company committed to
providing parents with professional photography at school photography pricing.

Jarreau Cross expanded the MugsyClicks vision when
he entered the family business in 2009. Jarreau now
leads the charge in photographer field training and
sales support.

What Our Fans Say About Us

“MugsyClicks is one of the most professional organizations I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They grow each year and yet still maintain the level of small business attention to detail. All employees are friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. We love MugsyClicks!”

“People could not believe these were "school pictures". My kids pictures are excellent!”

“My son is a junior. We have had very few "keepers" over the years.
Other companies just rush the kids through the photo line. Our first experience with MugsyClicks was
fantastic! It was my son's best portrait ever!”

“Your photographers clearly took their time to get a professional shot. Thank you!”

“This year we actually sent them to friends and relatives. The feed-back at school
has been nothing but positive! We should have switched to MugsyClicks a long time
ago!”

“My son actually smiled for his photo this year! We were so pleased. I love the natural setting for the
photographs and the chance to pick out the best of several shots. Your photographer must have been very
patient to wait for the smile!”

“Compared to the standard 3-second-pose shot with the creepy colored background, I thought these were
fantastic! You obviously took a great deal more time to get a variety of shots, which while making your
service more expensive, makes the photo worthwhile at all. I have almost never liked my children's school
pics before these.”

“It was great that you have the holiday card options. It was one-stop shopping. We got our school photo
and holiday card all in one.”

“AWESOME JOB!!!! I cannot believe how you were able to get so many GREAT shots of my son as he has
special needs. Even a cute little "model" pose - LOVE IT!!!”

“Both my girls resist smiling for the camera or just mug up and end up with goofy poses, but your
photographers got GREAT shots of both my girls. Thanks!”
