Hello parents of Options Academy kiddos! You’re in the right place. I’m so excited to share these adorable photos of your kiddos with you! Please read this page in its entirety.

Classroom Photos are being provided compliments of Options Academy, and will be provided to each student after retakes are complete, so we can include portraits of as many students and staff as possible.

All proofing and ordering is handled online through our secure proofing galleries. The deadline to place your order is SATURDAY, APRIL 4.

If you have questions, please contact Rona at schools@pausephoto.ca. You can follow us on Facebook or Instagram here.

Please read the important disclaimer at the bottom of this post. Thank you!

Scroll down to find your child’s room. Once you click on the classroom, you will be redirected to a new page where you will see the galleries for all the kiddos in your child’s classroom. Your child’s gallery is password protected.

Also, if you’re loving your kiddo’s photos as much as I am, it would be wonderful if you could complete a quick little model release for them (even if you did last year, I need one for each year), and I’ll be able to feature them in my school marketing materials (posters, emails, post cards and on my website). I never share your child’s name or other personal information with their image.


Your password is your child’s FIRST initial along with the first FOUR (4) letters of their last name (no spaces or hyphens) as well as their classroom abbreviation.

Room Abbreviations:
Baby Academy: BA
Junior Academy:
1/2 Day Preschool/Kinder Academy (Morning): PREKAM
1/2 Day Preschool/Kinder Academy (Afternoon): PREKPM
Preschool Academy: PA
Pre-Kinder Academy: PKA
After School Academy: ASA

Your child’s name is Jessica Jones and she is in the 1/2 Day Morning Academy; the online code for your gallery is JJONEPREKAM. Suppose Jessica has two siblings, Emily is in Baby Academy and Michael is in Junior Academy. They all came for sibling photos. The online codes for each gallery are unique. Emily’s online code would be EJONEBA. Michael’s online code would be MJONEJR.

Sibling passwords are the same as the password for the oldest sibling’s gallery.

Deadline to order is April 4, 2020 at 11:59pm

All purchases are made online and delivered to Options Academy, unless otherwise specified. A PDF price sheet is available here; all prices are available within your kiddo’s gallery when you select an image to add to your cart.

Due to the daycare being closed as mandated by Alberta Health to help limit the potential exposure and spread of COVID-19, a retake date is not yet. It is unclear if/when retakes will happen at this time, but both Options Academy and I will be in contact with you to let you know of a possible retake date once the daycare is open again. To receive specific communication only for retakes, sign up on the form below.

** IMPORTANT NOTE: These images are captured in a short time period with your kiddo. Due to the scheduling arranged with your child’s daycare, we have less than two minutes with each child. We do our best to capture a variety of expressions and conjure authenticity from your son or daughter during this short time. Some children are naturally more comfortable than others when it comes to photographs and strangers. We do not believe in forcing a child to “perform” just for the sake of capturing “the shot”; but rather we do our best to work with your kiddos, make them comfortable and enjoy that short minute or two we have. Please understand that all images are shot with the goal of being “real” – who they are in that moment. Some laugh, some cry, some stand stoic and pensive, some bounce around and giggle; we attempt to artistically capture all of this. The options included in the gallery of your son or daughter were the best shots we had on file and we hope you enjoy each of them! Thank you for your understanding.

One last thing… a Model Release

Your child’s privacy is important to me!

If you would be willing to give me permission to include your child’s photo (never any names) for these purposes, please complete the following release form. Thank you so much!
