WHY SHOULD WE DO GRAD PHOTOS?
Graduation should be special. It should be a moment in time that is celebrated. Pre-K and Kinder kids love to laugh and move around, so that’s what I let them do! Wonderful photos with natural smiles are hard to achieve while kids are made to stand still the entire time.
WHEN DO YOU TAKE GRAD PHOTOS?
It is up to you! If you would like to do a slide show at the graduation we can take them in the early spring and I'll have the digital images all ready for the graduation ceremony. Or we can take them closer to the end of school year.
WHERE DO YOU TAKE GRAD PHOTOS?
We can be a bit more creative with these photos. If there is a nice area outside and the weather is nice we can do them there or I can bring a solid backdrop like I do for school photos (I always suggest grey or a cream backdrop that I have). I provide all equipment needed for photo day. Nothing is needed from the school other than class organization at photo time.
DO YOU PROVIDE THE CAP AND GOWN?
I have two blue cap and gowns. I find the larger schools have their own colours but I'm happy to bring mine to home schools or anyone who would like to use them! If the kids want to dress up for grad day we can do photos of them with and with out the cap and gown.
WHAT SERVICES DO YOU OFFER?
I am a completely online operation. Families are linked to password-protected online ordering galleries. Galleries are set up according to grade, homeroom, advisory, or whatever grouping that makes sense for the school. Each child will be provided 6-8 images, in a vertical and landscape orientation, presented in both colour and black and white. The family may choose the photos they want printed, as opposed to having a single pose chosen for them by the photographer. I also provide unique product choices such as canvas gallery wraps, metal gallery prints and digital images for future printing and archiving. A detailed PDF describing all ordering procedures and shooting day preparation will be provided to each school to be distributed to families prior to photo day.
• Prints are ordered online and delivered directly to the school for distribution.
• Where applicable, I take group graduation photo.
• I handle any questions from parents and families about ordering and products.
• There is no cost the school to book.
WHAT ABOUT PRIVACY CONCERNS?
Each school’s gallery is hosted on a private, unlinked, and uncrawled site. Parents who may have additional concerns about privacy will be given the option to opt-in to an individual private and password protected gallery for their children. (Opt-ins will be submitted by the parent in writing prior to picture day.)
HOW CAN I REACH YOU?
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.
HOW DO I RECEIVE MY CHILD'S PROOFS?
An online gallery of each graduate 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)
