Hello parents and students of ASD and Tevie Miller schools! School photos are outdoors on Sep 21 (ASD) + 22 (TEV)!

I’m so excited to be back once again offering my unique boutique style of school portraits to your school. I know you’re going to love these genuine and expressive images of yourself (if you’re a student reading this) or your kiddos (if you’re a parent/guardian reading this)! This page is designed to give you some helpful information to make your photo experience as easy and convenient as possible. Of course, if you have questions, please contact Rona at the studio.

By participating in picture day, you (an individual over 18, a parent or guardian) consent to the use of your own and/or your child’s name and images created to be included group classroom photos, class composites, yearbooks and other school related products or services that may be commissioned by the school. If you would like to withdraw your consent, you must contact the studio by email or phone before your school’s photo ordering deadline.

FAQs

What makes this photography different?

My goal during my short time with each student is not to force a cheesy smile. I’m looking for natural expressions, which will range from serious and pensive to sweet and silly. Closely cropped shots keeps the focus solely on the child’s face and expression.

I’ll chat and interact with each student during our time together to elicit genuine expressions. To liven up my day, have your child come prepared with a joke for ME (I’m always looking to expand my dad joke repertoire)! 🙂

What should my kiddo wear?

We’re outdoors, so please dress for the weather! Picture day is a great excuse to get dressed up. The best clothing for pictures are bright and show off lovely detail in the shoulder area – sundresses, ties, collared shirts, pretty sleeves. Please contact Rona directly with questions.

Please avoid large logos, hoodies, or sweatshirts.

Will there be class photos available?

You bet! A composite class photo is included in packages A and B and is available as just a $5 add-on to any other portrait purchase. Think of composites as a mini yearbook page: individual photos with names combined onto a single page) instead of groups. If you do not want your child’s name and image to be included in the class composite, yearbooks or other school related products or services that may be commissioned by the school, you must contact the studio by email or phone before your school’s photo ordering deadline.

When can I expect to see our photos?

Notification of your child’s proofs will arrive to your email within 6 weeks of picture day (don’t forget to sign up to my email list below to get gallery release notices and reminders for picture day!). You’ll access proofs via a private online gallery. You will have 2-5 images in both colour and black and white to select from. Online galleries are open for 10 days. A late order charge of $10 is applied to orders placed after the galleries close.

How does ordering work?

After your receive your online gallery, you will have 10 days to place your order (there is a $10 late order admin fee to re-open your online gallery). Everything is viewed, ordered, and paid online, so there are no paper order forms to keep up with. You will have the option to purchase prints, image blocks, cool 3D photo shelves holding a metal print and digital images with printing rights. If you absolutely cannot place an order online, please contact the studio to make alternate arrangements.

Grandparents and other relatives may also place orders through the digital gallery!

All prints will be delivered to the school free of charge unless requested otherwise (shipping starts at $10 for porch drop off within Edmonton and $12 for Canada Post delivery).

What quality are the prints?

Prints come on professional-quality paper with lustre coating.

How much do packages cost?

We offer both print packages as well as digital negatives, where parents can print themselves. Packages range from $25–$55, and our digital negative collections begin at $45. We also offer custom studio products, such as image blocks, 3D photo shelves with a metal print, photo keychains, ornaments, mugs, framed enlargements and more.

Product orders will be delivered to your kiddo’s classroom within 6 weeks from the date your gallery closes.
