We want to offer your school an effortless picture day experience. From the beginning with open and clear communication, our efficient picture day workflow, parent communication, and our online proofing and ordering system - we strive to give our partner schools an easy, stress-free, and enjoyable experience. We handle all aspects of picture day so you can focus on educating your students. We work with a limited number of schools each year so that we can provide "hands-on" customer service to our partner schools.
In order to schedule your picture day, the first step is to contact us for a chat about the process and to discuss your school's needs. After we sign an agreement, your picture day is on the calendar!
We primarily photograph students outdoors, preferably under some type of shade. We'll work together in the weeks prior to school picture day to determine the best possible places for photographing students. Safety is our first priority, second to ideal lighting conditions, achieved by the use of natural sunlight.
Before picture day, we email all parents/guardians and provide them the information they need for picture day. They also receive our direct contact information so that we may handle all parent questions and concerns directly.
On picture day, we will arrive approximately 30 minutes before classes begin to set up and prepare for student and staff photos. Staff/parent volunteers help bring the students to have their picture taken and return them to class.
During our time with each child, they are encouraged to laugh, showcase their unique personality, and have a good time. The end results are genuine, timeless, and display-worthy portraits. We provide a light and fun experience for students and take pride in providing an environment where the they can relax and enjoy their portrait experience.
Our picture day workflow is efficient, and we try to move quickly while giving each student the time they need - without compromising the quality of the images.
Within 10 days after picture day, parents/guardians will be emailed their child's personal access code and link to view and order images. Purchased prints and products are mailed directly to the student's home and digital files are delivered via email.
Your school will receive digital images of each child and staff member that was photographed. You may use these images for the yearbook, ID cards, programs, and other school needs.
