Our Unique Product Line-Up
People love photos, especially those of their children and family members. Lil’ Angels provides a hassle-free way to get high quality portraits. Our most popular product is a fun, theme portrait program called “Fashion for Kids.” We are also constantly coming out with new ideas and trend-setting products that distinguish us as the industry leader. Kids E-Motion products are exclusive to Lil’ Angels and brand new to the photography industry. Our High Key, Black Background, and Green Screen portraits are fantastic examples of the creativity and professionalism uniquely offered by Lil’ Angels through our franchise owners. School Days is Lil’ Angels’ enhanced version of a traditional school photo. Whereas portraits are typically taken of children in their own clothing and limited poses against a single background, Lil’ Angels goes a step beyond. With “School Days”, children are posed in unique ways and themed or seasonal backgrounds are used. Lil’ Angels gives each child the time and individual attention needed to bring out the very best in portraits.
