HOW DOES IT WORK?
Raise funds through sitting fees. Your school/PAC will set the sitting fee I suggest $20-$40 per family. This fee entitles the family to a 20-minute portrait session, combination of colour and black & white images, a minimum of 30 high-resolution, digitally edited images to choose from and a private online proofing and ordering gallery for family & friends to view and order from.
100% of the money from sitting fees are retained by your school!
We want your fundraiser to be a success!
IT'S FUNDRAISING MADE SIMPLE!
A great way to have the beautiful portrait you’ve always wanted of your family (at a huge discounted price) while raising funds for your school.
Fundraise for your school or group by offering a gift everyone will love and cherish. School photo fundraising is the most innovative and successful way for your organization to raise much-needed funds.
WHERE DO WE TAKE THE PHOTOS?
For my schools I always suggest a park near by or the school grounds. This is where the kids feel most comfortable and when they look back on the photos in the future it will give them a great memory of school, friends and family. I book these sessions in the fall September/October and in the spring April/May. These tend to be our best weather months and the light is great all day long.
WHEN DO WE TAKE THE PHOTOS?
We can set up sessions after school in the fall until 5:30 as the sun starts to set earlier and in the Spring until 6:30. We can also book sessions on the weekends I'm happy to do all day as long as I can have a lunch/bathroom break!
CAN I BRING MY DOG(S)?
Yes! Dogs are family, too. Please consider whether your four-legged friend will cope with being tied up nearby and whether you’ll be able to focus on your family instead of what your fur baby is doing off-camera, if we don't have them in all of the photos.
WHAT CAN THE PARENTS PURCHASE?
I offer digital images, prints (packages with both), Christmas cards, Christmas ornaments, canvas and metal prints.
WE ALREADY HAVE A SCHOOL DAY PHOTOGRAPHER.
That's okay! Amy Williams Photography specializes in the family portrait experience! I am also a school day photographer but I am happy to bring this fantastic fundraiser to your school and families.
WE ALREADY DECIDED ON OUR FUNDRAISERS THIS YEAR.
Photo fundraising requires minimal effort. It’s a great compliment to already existing scheduled fundraisers.
WHAT DOES THE SCHOOL HAVE TO DO?
Very little. I will provide all the marketing materials. The school gets the word out through word of mouth, newsletters, and e-mail.
DO WE HAVE TO SIGN PEOPLE UP OR SCHEDULE THEM?
I will set-up an online portal for parents to sign-up and pay the sitting fee. I will then present the school with a cheque for the fundraiser. It’s easy and convenient.
DO WE HAVE TO COLLECT ORDERS?
Orders are viewed and made online. Each families gallery is hosted on a private, unlinked, and uncrawled site. Any print orders will be delivered to the school for distribution 10 days after the galleries close.
HOW DO WE GET MORE INFORMATION?
I can be reached 10am - 5pm via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you contact me outside of these hours I will get back to you the following day. I am available for an in-person presentation.
HOW DO I RECEIVE MY FAMILIES PROOFS?
An online gallery of each family will be provided to the parents via email. Please make sure you sign in with your correct email address. If you order digital images this is where your digital downloads will go!
WHY DO YOU NEED MY ADDRESS AND EMAIL?
I will always respect your privacy. These items are used to get your products to you.
Email: make sure your correct email address is used! No junk mail will be sent to you I promise!! When you order digital images the email address you submit when you sign in is where your images will be sent.
Address: If there's a problem with your order, if I make a mistake I will quickly resolve the problem and send out a new order to you at home.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PRINT ORDER?
Within ten working days your order will be delivered to your school for distribution.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY DIGITAL ORDER?
You will receive an email immediately after purchase with downloading instructions. If you don't see this email right away, please check your junk or spam folders they sometimes get filtered into these.
HOW DO I DOWNLOAD MY IMAGES?
You must download your images using a computer or laptop. Because the images are high resolution, they can not be downloaded to your phone or tablet.
ONCE I HAVE MY DIGITAL IMAGES CAN I SHARE THEM ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
Of course!! Please credit Amy Williams Photography when sharing. You may not alter or edit these images in any way, including social medial filters. (Tag @amywilliams_photography on IG)
