DURING PORTRAIT DAY
When do you schedule portrait sessions?
Whenever is the most convenient! I will also bring multiple setups if needed. I prefer to maximize the number of participants and minimize the number of times I need to set up and tear down.
How long does each child’s portrait session take?
Each child should take no more than 45 seconds to get their photo taken. QR cards will be located as the child steps up for their portraits by the photographer's assistant The card is scanned by the photographer, several poses are taken and that's it!
How many poses does each child get?
Each child has the choice of two poses at three angles (plus a silly face) for a total of four poses per child. Parents may choose one, none, a handful or all poses when ordering.
AFTER YOUR PORTRAIT DAY
How do parent place orders?
Each team receives a beautiful, easy-to-use online website that showcases each child's photos in individually password-protected online galleries. Parents order right there in the gallery; it's even easy to view sibling galleries and check out all at once!
If some parents neec assistance with online ordering or prefer to pay via cash or money app, please have them contact me for assistance.
How long does it take for portraits to arrive?
For the first week, schools have the option to allow batch shipment for school delivery. Any additional orders are sent directly to the lab and will be shipped directly to the purchaser's home usually within one week of ordering. Digitals are available for download immediately (within a few hours).
What types of payment are accepted?
Online ordering accepts all major credit cards. For families that do not have online ordering access, payment can be made via Venmo, cash app, cash, or money order.
Can families place a second order or reorder more prints?
Of course! Contact Mande for assistance!
