How Do family & friends Order Photos?
Images can be viewed and ordered ON-LINE.
We do not take the security of children lightly.
The only way to gain access to these images is with your Access Code.
The "Access Code" to view these Protected Galleries
will be handed out to you and the Parents on Photo Day.
Registering for an account in Photo Cart will allow you to add images to "My Favourite's"
so you can view ALL the images of your child/children on the one page.
Use it like a "Brag Book On-Line".
You can also flag each image and "Compare them Side by Side"
which will allow you to choose images a lot easier!
We have also set up a secure link for credit card payments over the net.
This way all the parents concerns when it comes to the security of their kids
and their credit card details have been addressed.
This system reduces the chances of orders being lost as well as saving the schools
from the extra workload, the security involved in collecting orders
and the turnaround time involved in doing so.
Once the orders are processed,
they are mailed directly to the customers placing the order.
All orders are cropped to size and retouched during editing,
so please allow up to 6 weeks delivery.
*The Delivery Fee
Covers the cost of...
*Thick packaging to protect your photos, as well as the postage.
$5.50 includes Standard Post & $8.50 includes Registered Post
Inquiries on bookings and photo prices

Monday-Friday after 6:00pm
or leave a message during other times.
Here are a few tips to allow Photo Day to run smoothly
and less stressful with the right timing!
Allow 1.5hr for setting up of backdrop, lights and camera equipment.
A teacher is to be present at all times during the shoot.
*After class leading up to Photo Day, practice a set pose for each GROUP
within a 5m x 2m space.
If the routine has a starting or ending pose, weíll use that.
*Have a full length & close-up pose for the individual shots
that suits the choreography of that routine.
It helps especially for the littlies if each child does the same solo pose.
The older kids can generally do their own pose that suits the choreography of that routine,
please ensure they use a "DIFFERENT POSE" for each routine
and NOT the same pose they used in their GROUP shot.
This way the parents are sure to have photos with different poses for each costume.
These next two points are
so the day runs ON TIME!
(You may need more than a one day shoot)
*To calculate the time needed to photograph
the babies groups and individuals, allow 2 minutes per child.
(Thatís 1 minute per child & 1 minute each towards the GROUP)
eg. 20 min for a GROUP of 10 Tiny Tots.
*To calculate the time needed to photograph
the older groups and individuals, allow 1 minute per child.
(Thatís 30 seconds per child & 30 seconds each towards the GROUP)
eg. 10 min for a GROUP of 10 students.
*Please ensure NO VIDEO or STILL CAMERAS are used near the studio set up.
It interferes with flow of the photo shoot.
