FAQs

What email address do I use to sign in to the gallery?

Use your own personal email address.

What’s a class composite?

Composites are like a mini yearbook page: each child’s name and photo appears on a single sheet with their classmates.

I missed the ordering deadline. Can I still order school photos?

You can place an order for your school photos at any time, up to 2 calendar years after picture day. Contact the studio to have your gallery recreated. There is a $10 late order handling fee applied to orders placed after the ordering deadline. There is an unarchiving fee applicable to orders placed 3 months or more past your school’s original ordering deadline.

How do I get my digital files?

After you check out, you’ll receive a download link by email for the images you ordered. This link is only active for 7 days, please ensure you download and back up your images somewhere safe. There is an unarchiving fee applicable to resending image downloads 3 months or more past your school’s original ordering deadline.

I’m locked out of my gallery, what do I do?

If you’ve entered an incorrect gallery password too many times, you will be locked out. This is a gallery safety mechanism to combat unauthorized access. Clear your browser cookies or cache and try again in a new tab. Passwords are CaSe sEnSiTiVE, please ensure you are using correct capitalization and spacing (if applicable). If you are still having trouble, contact the studio for help.

** IMPORTANT NOTE: These images are captured in a short time period with your kiddo. Due to the scheduling arranged with your child’s school, 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 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.
