Why is there a deadline, and when will I receive my order?
I order all prints at once to keep costs low. All physical products will be shipped directly to your school within 1-2weeks.
Are siblings invited?
Yes!All siblings and friends that are currently enrolled at the school will have their picture taken individually and together on picture day. Visiting siblings, who are not enrolled, may come in to have their photo taken at the beginning of the Photo shoot.
What if my child doesn’t attend school on Photo day?
You may come in to have their photo taken at the beginning of the Photo shoot. Along with families who are bringing in siblings.
If you can’t make it on Photo Day for any reason (your child is sick, or you are on vacation), I do offer 2 Pop-up Portrait Sessions a year. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter to stay in the loop!
Can parents jump in for a quick photo?
I am a family photographer, I would LOVE to photograph your family!! However, on School Portrait day, I cannot accommodate parents. No exceptions, thank you!
Why aren’t there the same number of images and variety of poses in each school portrait gallery?
Depending on the time of day, personality and mood of the moment, some kids will offer a variety of expressions where others will be more reserved.
I strive to capture the personality of your unique child… which also means that I steer clear from cheesy smiles.
Is there a class photo?
Yes, and I offer a 5×7 print to everyone who places an order 🙂
What should my children wear, any tips?
YES, have a look at my page What should my child wear on Photo Day?
You will want to avoid logos, black and neon colors. Accessories are a must and so much fun if they help your child’s personality shine 🙂
What if my child had a runny nose? A scrape, or a rash?
I keep a bag of unscented wipes near me during the photo session. If there are any scrapes or cuts on their face, you may choose to have one or several images retouched (option in your gallery).
I don’t want you to use my child’s portrait on social media
Without your consent, your child will not be featured on any social media. I take this very seriously.
Can I take screenshots?
No, you may not. This is important for me as an artist and small business owner. Please, be kind. There is a watermark on each image that will disappear once you have purchased your digital image.
I have more questions, how can I contact you?
By email at email@example.com 🙂
