No we do not charge a sitting fee.
Is there a fee for coming to my school to do portrait sessions?
There may be a travel charge depending on how far from us you are. Please refer to the Travel Fee page for details.
Can more then 1 person be in the photo?
Yes and there is NO additional charge for extra persons, UNLESS you are are purchasing a special background.(See Below).
When and where will the photographs be delivered?
In 4 to 6 weeks your photos will be delivered free to the school. We can ship your photos directly to you for an additional $15 shipping and handling fee.
Do I have to have my picture done on the same color background as the rest?
The Instructor and his staff select the default color background being used and all photos are done on that background. The photos selected for the group photo will all be the same background color.
Can I have a different background?
Yes, this is called a digital background and there is an additional $20.00 charge for each additional person in the artwork. We will have a book of backgrounds at your school for you to choose from.
Can I combine 2 or more poses into 1 image?
Yes. This is part of our Digital Background offering, and would be $20 for the background, and $15 for the second, and each additional pose.
I just want the basic photos. Can I mix which poses I get in a package?
Yes. You can do multiple prints of the same pose, or mix them up. Feel free to get some wallets of your close up, and an 8x10 of your full length shot.
I don’t want to buy paper prints. Can I buy the digitals and print them at home?
Yes. There is a $125 charge per image. Digital backgrounds and multiple poses are an additional charge.
I do not want to buy any pictures, I just want my picture on the school photo.
No purchase is necessary. During the photo shoot just let us know all you want is to be included on the school photo.
I don’t want to purchase any prints, just the school photo.
That’s ok. If you wish to purchase just the school photo, we do have it available for an additional charge.
Can I buy the school photo as a digital?
No. The school photo is only available as a print.
How much time will the photo session take? How many photos do you take?
Due to the nature of school photos, we allow about 5 minutes per person. We aim to shoot 4-5 photos, with 1 being a close up, 1 a full length, 1 a head shot, and 1 or 2 action shots. Because we are shooting a large number of individuals in a short time, we ask that you arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled photo time, and please have your paper work filled out. We also ask that you have your ‘action pose’ planned and practiced in advance so that we may capture the best photos for you.
Do I need to schedule my session?
In order to ensure that everyone is given our full attention, and that we can take care of everyone efficiently, we ask that you schedule your session in advance. We will attempt to take all walk ins as time allows, but prescheduled sessions have priority.
How much time should I schedule?
Each session is scheduled for 5 minutes. We recommend 1 session per person, and 1 session for a group. So if you have 2 children, we recommend you schedule 3 sessions so that we may photograph both of them individually, as well as together.
I’m not a student, can I be photographed with my child?
Certainly. Please see above for scheduling.
