A: Your child’s pictures will arrive approximately 3 weeks after your school’s picture day. Picture envelopes will be sent to your child’s school for distribution by the teachers to the students.
Q: What are the advantages of ordering my school pictures online?
A: By ordering online, you have the convenience and security of paying by credit card or debit card. Your child will not need to carry cash or a check to picture day, only the order form with confirmation number and receipt.

Any orders placed after the two-day grace period has ended, will not be ordered until the make up day order is processed. This is to avoid extra processing charges for you.

A:  Yes, we just ask that the two order forms are stapled together and please indicate on the outside of envelope if you are mom or dad or grandparent etc.
Q: What if I don’t like my child’s portrait?
A: At CA School Photography, we guarantee great pictures. If you are not satisfied, return your package with ALL of its contents on the make up day and we will re-photograph free of charge. The child must be wearing the same outfit as the original photo and. Please make notes on the envelope of what you were unsatisfied with so we may better fulfill your expectations.

A: Our photographers are trained to adjust lights and pose your child to minimize glass glare.
Q: Is there an adult available to help my child prepare for his or her picture?
A: Picture day is a big day at school. Teachers and parent volunteers play an important role escorting classes to the camera and assisting the students with any grooming needs.
Q: Can my child wear his/her hat in his/her picture?
A: Unfortunately, school policy does not allow students to wear hats in the fall portraits because they are used for administrative purposes as well as for you to order. However, if you have any other requests for wardrobe, such as leaving a jacket on, etc. please make note in the Parent notes for photographer box on your child’s order form.
Q: I have two children can they take a photo together?
A:  Unfortunately, due to our how our system and lighting are set in order to allow multiple background choices, we are unable to offer pictures of multiple students together.
