WHAT IS FINE ART SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHY, YOU ASK?
PICTURE DAY IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!
September 26th & 27th - Fall Picture Day
GALLERIES AVAILABLE TO VIEW & ORDER - OCTOBER 4TH
RETAKES/MAKE-UPS - OCTOBER 9TH & 10TH
LAST DAY TO ORDER FALL PORTRAITS - OCTOBER 19TH
ORDERS DELIVERED TO SCHOOL - OCTOBER 31ST
Class Picture Day - TBD
PLEASE READ ALL THE INFO BELOW:
All galleries are private and password-protected. The password to your child's individual gallery is his/her 4-digit birthday in MMDD format. (Example: May 10th would be 0510)
Make-up/Retakes will be available, at no charge, for students that were not available to participate in picture day and for parents unhappy with their child's portrait gallery. Retake portraits will be placed in a separate gallery indicating "retakes". The original gallery will still be available. Please note that images from these two galleries will not be combined.
If you child attends Kids Express Monday - Thursday, he/she was photographed twice and will have two albums. Should you purchase the digital file package (to include all digital files) those galleries will be combined (so you will have portraits from both albums available). (Retake galleries will not be combined with original galleries, even in the case that all digital files are purchased).
When you purchase digital files, you receive the rights to print and use your child's image(s) for personal use. You may share on social media, email to friends and family, and make prints using your preferred lab. Please note that I am unable to guarantee quality of prints from outside labs.
QUICK DETAILS ABOUT PICTURE DAY
You are not required to purchase school photos. There is no minimum order required for orders placed by the ordering deadline.
Orders placed by the ordering deadline will be hand delivered to your school. Orders placed after that date will incur a shipping or handling charge and a minimum order amount of $50.
To have your order mailed directly to your home, or to a relative, be sure to add the shipping option to your order.
Digital files can be ordered right from your gallery by clicking on the "Digital Media" tab. Digital files are high-resolution and will be delivered to your email via zip file. Please note, print quality is not guaranteed on items printed outside of my professional lab.
Galleries will be removed at the end of the school year. If you would like to view/purchase photos after this date there will be a $35 fee to reopen the gallery. All images are deleted 1 year after picture day and will not be available once deleted.
Due to the custom nature of portraiture, all sales are final.
Some students are much more comfortable in front of the camera, those students will have more images in their gallery. Some students will be more reserved and may only give me a few facial expressions so they will have a few less. I strive to connect with each student to capture their personality & I put each and every image that is technically sound in your gallery.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why does it say "Kat Oswald Photography" across the photo? That is our way of protecting the photographs of your child from being used without permission. Purchased items (canvas, digital files, prints, etc) will NOT have a logo or proof across the image..
Do you offer retouching? Although all images are hand edited, additional retouching (such as removing acne, scaring, braces, glare, etc) is not done automatically. There is an option when placing your online order to have one image retouched, or to have all photos of your child in the entire gallery retouched.
Do you offer discounts on portrait sessions? Absolutely. I offer a generous discount off Family Sessions, Studio Sessions, and Senior Portrait Sessions. Please CLICK HERE for details and specifics on these sessions, or to book your session today!
Are your print prices the same if we book a portrait session? Because school orders are placed in bulk through my professional lab specializing in school portrait printing I am not able to honor the same deal on prints for portrait sessions. The pricing for school photography is based on high volume. All other portraits are specifically commissioned on creating heirloom products & original art for your home.
Why is there a minimum order amount required for all orders placed after the ordering deadline? There is a minimum order of $50 required for all orders placed after the ordering deadline because I only receive bulk pricing and discounted shipping on large orders placed at the same time. I happily pass that savings down to parents that order before the final due date.
