Picture Day made easy
For Private Preschools, Elementary, & Upper Schools
Every school year is a whirlwind of learning, growth, and change. Each year is a milestone worth documenting and celebrating. Your parents will love having school pictures offered during the year so they can always remember this particular season in their children's lives.
But you have a school to run! Your to-do list is already about 5 pages long and adding one more activity to the calendar sounds insane...
That's where Points of View Photography comes to the rescue. When you book School Pictures with me, your job is 80% done! Check out the process below and let me know when you'd like to schedule YOUR School Picture Day.
My parents will love School Pictures!
How it works:
Contact Points of View at least 4 weeks before your requested School Picture Day to book a date that works for both of us. If you have more than 50 students, we will likely set up multiple picture days.
I will come meet with you on your campus at a time convenient for you, to decide on photo locations, props, and other details.
You will send out the interest form link to all your parents via email. I will provide this link to you at least 3 weeks ahead of your Picture Day.
I will also send reminders to forward out during the countdown to your Picture Day.
Picture Day! It will be important for a teacher or aide to be available to escort children between classes and to help identify students.
Fully-edited, private galleries will be emailed directly to parents within 2-3 weeks for picture selection!
Happy Picture Day
It is always my goal to make pictures fun and relaxed. I want to see those smiles that turn into laughter. So Picture Days with Points of View are often not typical! My first choice will always be to take the students outside in beautiful, natural light. I'll often bring items for students to hold or play with - happy distractions that help them be truly natural and comfortable.
School Picture Days with Points of View are perfect for daycares, preschools, homeschool co-ops, small private schools, & tutorials!
These also work great for TEAM Photos!
Yes, we definitely want to schedule pictures!
Does the school have to pay for pictures?
No! School picture fees are paid directly by the parents. Only children that have prepaid for a photo spot will be photographed on Picture Day. The school does not pay any additional fees, unless the school wants to pay for individual staff pictures. If so, we can discuss a group rate for the staff.
Do parents have to pre-order?
Yes. A basic session fee must be paid PRIOR to Picture Day in order for students to be placed on the picture list. Without payment, students will not be photographed.
Should the school wish to have photographs of all students for yearbook purposes, we can discuss a group rate for students who are not prepaid.
Can we get class pictures?
Absolutely! I typically take a class picture of each class on campus. These images will be published on a password-protected gallery that will be shareable with the whole school. Anyone interested in a class picture can order directly from this online gallery. Pre-orders are NOT necessary for class pictures.
What should our students wear?
I'm happy to provide a mini School Picture style guide to all the families that order sessions! They will get this directly emailed to them with their session info.
If your school is an art school (dance, music, etc) then we can discuss what outfits/costumes will photograph best!
Do you need help on Picture Day?
It is very important that a school volunteer be available to help throughout Picture Day. This person can be a secretary, aide, or even a trusted parent - whoever you can spare! This volunteer will help collect students from classrooms (I will provide a list of all those that paid), help to entertain children that are waiting for their turn to be photographed, and be able to identify students by name. It is perfectly fine if this person changes throughout the day or from classroom to classroom.
What pacakge options are available to parents?
The Basic Pacakge that reserves a student's picture spot starts at $30. This fee holds the session spot and provides parents with a coupon to use in their personal online gallery store. We will create a tailored Basic Package for your individual school upon booking.
Once galleries are delivered, parents will have a multitude of heirloom-quality print, artwork, and digital purchase options available to them through their gallery store. They can select to only receive what was included with their Basic Package, or they may purchase as many additional items as they wish.
Purchases will be shipped directly to their home.
