How do I order?

We offer both traditional paper order forms (we know– it seems archaic, but it is sometimes easier for us busy parents!) and we also offer an electronic order form that parents can fill out online if this is preferred. Please contact us for the link.  So, fill out your paper or online form before Picture Day and we'll take care of the rest.
(Note: We do make portraits available online six weeks after Picture day– for parents who didn't get a chance to order or wish
re-order more.)

Can I see my child's portrait before I order?

Yes! Please select to "view proofs" on your order form and we will email you three options to choose from. If not, we will fill your order with the portrait we think is the best. Either choice is a good one!

Is there a satisfaction guarantee?

Yes– if you are not happy with your portraits we will refund 100% of your payment. Just email us.

When will my order arrive?
