Directors FAQs

What will SKP need from me?

We simply request that a staff member or volunteer be available to assist with wardrobe changes as needed.

Are discounts available for our staff?

Yes. The director will receive a $200 credit towards items offered by SKP. Two staff members, selected by the director, will receive a $100 credit towards items offered by SKP. All other school staff will receive a 25% discount on all items offered by SKP.

Will our center receive any benefit from the sales?

Yes. We will donate a portion of all sales back to your school. The typical donation amounts to 10% although in some cases we run specials that amount to more.

What age range of students does SKP photograph?

We specialize in preschool and daycare portraiture for children from 4 months to 6 years of age.

Does it cost the school anything to have portraits taken?

There is no charge or fee to the school.

What do we need to tell our parents?

SKP will send you two large posters to display and a stack of hand-outs to give to your parents well in advance of photo day.

What if our parents don’t remember?

Since we provide all costumes, props and accessories we will be able to complete the photo session for every child.

Does SKP offer sibling portraits?

Yes, siblings may be photographed with the student during their photo session.

When do portrait sessions occur?

Photos are taken in the morning, when the children are at their best. Typically the session will start around 9:00 AM and last until about noon.

How long does each child’s portrait session take?

The average session lasts about five minutes. Because we take the time and care to capture the best pose and smile possible, some sessions may take longer than others.

How many days are needed for larger classes?

We average 25 to 30 photo sessions a day. For classes larger than 30, we will typically schedule extra days. For example, a class of 90 will take three days.

Is there a minimum class size?

The minimum class size is 25 students. If your class has less than 25 students, contact us for more information and options.

How many poses does each child get?

Each child will have a number of photos taken with the goal of providing each parent with a portfolio that includes eight different poses.

What products does SKP offer?

Parents may purchase a portfolio that includes up to eight high quality proof prints on the day of their child’s photo session. Parents may also order prints and/or a CD or USB flash drive with high resolution digital images of their children’s photos. All digital media will include a copyright release which gives the purchaser permission to print the images.

Does SKP offer “free” give-away items?

We prefer to focus on providing the highest quality images in the shortest turn-around time possible at a price that is less than our competitors. Not offering “free” give-away items helps us achieve this goal.

How long does it take for ordered items to arrive?

Items will arrive at the school within three weeks of the final order date, often much sooner. Every order will be individually packaged and labeled but will be shipped together in one box for distribution by your staff.

What types of payment are accepted?

We accept all major credit cards, cash, check, or money order.

Can families place a second order or reorder more prints?
