I didn't get my class picture (composite or yearbook)
Typically the classroom group picture, composite, or yearbook doesn't come until after the retakes have been done. First check your students portrait package to make sure it doesn't include a notice that states the product “will be delivered at a later date”. If you didn't receive this notice then please call our customer service department. However, if you received this notice then please allow approximately 6-8 weeks for this product to be delivered to the school.
How long do you keep your images on file?
We typically keep our images on file for approximately 18 months. This allows parents the opportunity to reorder additional pictures or to replace photos that may have been lost or damaged.
What do I do if my Child needs retakes?
First, find out from the school when the retake date will be. Then on the retake day, simply have your child return original portrait package to the photographer. The photographer will retake your child's picture in exchange for the package you have already paid for. Please be sure and keep the class picture or yearbook if it was included in the original package, as it will not be included with the retake package.
What is the Free Photo book?
The free photo book is created online using your own personal photos. The photo book can be created to include photos of a summer vacation, a family reunion, holidays, a trip to the zoo, etc. There are a variety of themes, clip art, background papers, and font styles available. Be creative! The design possibilities are endless.
