How to Order...

You can purchase your portraits in one of 3 ways:

  1. Place your order online before picture day (Pre-order)

  2. Hand the photographer your completed school picture order form on picture day

  3. Order from proofs online following picture day (Proof Order)


Always place your order online before picture day or with an order form on picture day. Your package price is the same using these two methods. All of our portraits are fully guaranteed.

Orders placed using the proof method are slightly higher (we lose volume discounts at our lab) and we must add shipping charges to mail them to your home. Photos may not be picked up at our office.


We feel the best investment you can make to your photograph is through facial retouching. We offer 2 services. The first is for removing blemishes only and the second is for enhanced retouching that covers blemishes and softens lines around the eyes or for those with increased acne.
