Step 2: Frequently Asked Questions

You can also call us at 951-304-4133 during normal business hours and we’ll be more than happy to answer your questions!

When should I book my appointment?

We highly recommend you complete your senior portraits the summer going into your senior year. We understand how busy your last year of high school can be, therefore; we recommend you take them sooner than later. Should you wish to make any changes, or completely retake your pictures, call to book an appointment or schedule one online.

When do I pay for my session?

You pay your sitting fees in advance when you make your appointment, whether it be online, phone call or in-person. We require each session to be paid in full prior to arriving at your appointment. Our outdoor session fees are also to be paid in full. If an emergency comes up, we can definitely make arrangements to reschedule your outdoor session. Please call the studio ASAP to let us know if you cannot make your session.

What's included with my session?

The session fee covers your one-on-one time with the photographer, retouching of the images for the yearbook, and the submission of photos to the yearbook company. No photos are included in the session fees. You may purchase images from the studio in a variety of ways.

All students will be sent a link to the email and phone number given at the time of the appointment with their photo session. Photos will be ready to purchase online and over the phone.

What if I need to Cancel/Rebook my appointment?

We know life happens and things come up that might interfere with your appointment, not a problem. All we ask is that you give us a courtesy call and let us know. If you fail to notify our studio within 24 hours, you will lose your sitting fee and need to book a second appointment. A second payment will be required at the time of your rebooking. We understand that not all situations are the same, but please be mindful. We are a smaller business and we staff according to booked appointments.

What happens if I'm running late?

If you are running more than 15 minutes late to your appointment, our studios have the right to cancel your appointment. We do not double book appointments, so each session is scheduled specifically for you. We advise all our appointments to arrive 10 minutes prior to their appointment to check-in and prepare for their session.

While we understand circumstances may cause you to be late, pushing back a start time for an appointment would result in a domino effect for all other appointments. We will make every effort to accommodate you, but we also ask that you call the studio if you are running late.

What session should I select?

Our sessions range from a traditional 20-minute photoshoot with two clothing changes to an hour-long outdoor session that allows you to have up to four clothing changes and take up to 120 pictures. 

The choice is all up to you. Bring that smile and your favorite outfit and let’s capture the magic.

* All sessions include free retouching and submission to the school yearbook. We will also PROVIDE ALL MANDATORY attire required by each high school. This includes Cap/Gown, Tuxedo, and white undershirt, and Black Drape.

You can see examples of these photos under the example link on the Book an Appointment Page.

We have a session perfect for everyone, make sure you read what they all entail and select that one that works best for you.

May I include a pet in my photo shoot?

Absolutely! Depending on your school, some allow pets to accompany the student in the yearbook. Please check with our staff to see what your school’s yearbook guideline are. Either way, we are happy to photograph you with your best friend!

What retouching is included?

All images submitted to the yearbook will be retouched. Standard Retouching includes the following basic services:

  • Teeth and Eye whitening
  • Basic skin blemish removal
  • Cropping/Sharpening
  • Color/ level adjustments
  • Softening of pores of skin

Retouching is also included with any picture order. We do charge for the following retouching items:

  • Braces removal ($20 per image)
  • The evening of the skin due to sunburns ($10 per image)
  • Extensive glass glare ($20 per image)
  • Moles/Scar Removal ( $10 per image)
  • Any request not handled by our in-house retouching staff (price varies)

What's the deadline to be in the yearbook?

Each high school will set a deadline date that we have to abide by. The deadline will typically be sent out via flyers when the time is approaching. To know the exact date, check-in with your school’s yearbook department.

The dates are planned in conjunction with your school’s yearbook class and printer. We are simply the company selected to provide the photography services for your student. The final deadline date is non-negotiable and out of our control. We will still be happy to photograph you for your private photos at any time.

What Measures are being taken related to COVID-19?

In times of uncertainty, Our main priority is to keep our guests and staff safe and healthy. Therefore, we have not only remodeled our studios to ensure that social distancing and spacing are permitted but have incorporated new sanitizing protocols regulated by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
We require all guests and staff to wear masks at all times (students are exempt during their session)

We implement touchless check-in by allowing our guests to scan in using a QR code. In addition, we practice touchless posing and steam all our caps, gowns, suits, undershirts, and drapes.

**For more information on the new protocols that we strictly enforce, refer back to our “Updates” page

What if my deposit is not applying on my order?

Make sure the order has reached a subtotal of $150, for the deposit to apply. If there is still an issue, please call and talk to one of our customer service specialists.  

We will get to the bottom of it for you!
