FAQs for schools
Tell me a little about the process. Fun Love offers parents a more custom, candid and boutique option for school portraits than your average school portrait provider. I pride myself on capturing a technically sound photograph that accentuates each child’s individual personality. I don’t like the word “cheese” - and I do not believe in forcing a smile. I thrive on authenticity and natural expressiveness. I believe I have a service that parents crave for marking these fleeting school memories and I know that this program is a definite value-add to your school. I shoot all the portraits myself (with my assistant) and let my online digital system take care of ordering and processing payments. I minimally interrupt classroom schedules and provide a unique product to your families.
What do you need from the school? I will need just a few items from you, including classroom rosters, daily classroom schedules, a map of the school, and a list of any special instructions or sensitive information you think may be pertinent. Also, if your school utilizes a mass email system to notify parents of various announcements, I would love to take advantage of that once or twice during this process to remind and encourage participation in our program. If additional items pop up along the way, I will be sure to communicate those needs with you.
Do you have insurance? Yes. I am happy to provide proof of insurance upon request.
Where do you take the pictures? I would like to work with you in the weeks preceding our shoot day(s) to determine together the best possible places for shooting. Safety is the first priority, second being ideal lighting conditions, which are best achieved by the use of natural sunlight through large windows. Artificial light may be used, although natural light will be preferred.
How do parents view images, order and pay? The entire system is hosted online. Proofs are released for viewing through a password protected online link, and all orders and payments are processed online. The school does not have to worry about printed proofs, order forms, or handling/processing money. The online system takes care of everything. Proofs will be shown together for each class, so each family will be able to see all the proofs of all the children from their child’s class.
How long does the whole process take? After I shoot the pictures, it will take approximately 3-6 weeks before proofs are released to the parents. The order deadline will be listed for one week after proof release. Once all orders are in, products will begin to arrive 2-4 weeks later. I will personally deliver all of the products to the school, unless the parents note otherwise on the order form.
What does it cost for the families? I offer both print packages as well as digital negatives, where parents can print themselves. All print packages are either $50 of $60, and digital negative collections begin at $65. I also offer custom studio products, such as wall mounts, desk displays and framed enlargements.
How many options do parents get? I offer 6 different print packages and 2 different digital negative collections. I also offer custom wall mounts of small to huge size, various desk display options and framed studio enlargements.
Do parents have to participate? Participation is not required. I will shoot portraits for every child on campus, and provide proofs for each child photographed. Proofs will be provided digitally and because of this your teachers will not have to worry about collecting un-purchased proofs or order forms. If parents do not want to participate, they are not obligated.
Do you take class portraits and siblings portraits? Yes. One image of each class will be shown in the final proofs and every family that makes an order will receive a 5x7” print of their class portrait. The school will also receive 2 copies of the 5x7” print of each class portrait as a complimentary bonus. Sibling pictures will be accommodated where possible and families will be able to view the sibling portrait proofs along with all other proofs.
Do you have a contract? I do have a simple contract, which outlines the basic services Fun Love Photography provides to your school. The contract covers basic topics such as safety, liability, logistics, payments, and scheduling. I am more than happy to provide a copy of said contract for your review.
Will the school need to hire an assistant for you? The school will not need to change anything to accommodate us. We will be present during our shooting day(s) with at least one additional assistant in addition to myself, the primary shooter.
