Frequently Asked Questions
DO FAMILIES PAY UPFRONT ?
For Kindergarten only centres - No payment upfront is required.
For Childcare Centres - LDC - Yes - a $20 pre-registration fee is applicable in order to have a selection of 10-15 images to choose from - The prepaid fee is credited back towards a purchase from their online gallery of images. Children that have not paid the $20 pre-registration fee will have 1 photo taken only if possible.
Families choose their photos after viewing their child’s photo gallery. We ask that you look over our price guide to ascertain if our pricing will suit your centre families. Our prices are competitive with the added bonus that we give your families the luxury of a choice of images and not just 1 preselected photo.
DOES THE CENTRE NEED TO HANDLE ANY CASH OR ORDERS ?

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH ALL CHILDREN AT THE CENTRE ?
Yes, we schedule all children for a photo day on a day they are at the centre. Families are asked to Pre-register on our website PRIOR to photo day for their child’s photos. By pre-registering they will have a variety of photos taken of their child. If pre-registration is not completed, 1-2 photos only are taken of their child if possible.
WHERE DO YOU TAKE THE PHOTOS ? We photograph in the outdoor areas of your centre. This aids in creating the photos you see on the website with natural light. We choose areas that have some shade to produce this result. In wet weather we will either move to an area undercover or discuss the suitability of postponement. This is extremely rare in our beautiful Queensland climate !
WHAT IS THE TURNAROUND TIME? The sessions take from 2 -4 days for centres up to 130 enrolled children - longer for larger centres. Photo galleries are then ready to view approximately 7 working days after the last session at the centre. There is then a 2 week ordering period for printed photo packages. If families order digital files they are delivered immediately.
