PORTRAIT OPTIONS

  • Individual Portraits at Dance Studio With Signup

    Parents signup up there child in a 15 minute slot with 3-5 dancers per slot. This allows time for each child to change if they have multiple outfits. While we photograph one child another is getting ready. All images are then viewed and orders are placed the same day

    This option is the most efficient way to photograph your dance studio and give the best experience for your parents. We always recommend this option to the studio

  • Individual & Group Portraits at Dance Studio

    Classes are scheduled in a certain time block, usually every 15 minutes. We photograph the individual images and then the group (dancers who are present). Parents then view and order there images right after the pictures.

  • Individual Portraits Taken at Dress Rehearsal

    Individual portraits are taken in the performing art center lobby and pictures are first come first serve.

    Our schedule is limited on availability with this option. We also can not guarantee the same day the following year if deciding to book with us. We always recommend to photograph individual portraits with a signup, at the dance studio.

Frequently Asked Questions

Creators of DancePoses.com

Having the proper dance pose is important when photographing dance portraits. We help pose all dancers accordingly to the genre, age level, and experience. We also give the dancers the option to choose there favorite pose(s) in order to give them a more custom experience. We photograph anywhere from 4-7 poses per outfit, which gives variety when choosing for purchase.

How far in advance do we need to book with you?

If you are interested in our services we ask that you contact us as soon as possible to go over any questions you have.

Normally we start scheduling in September and finalize all our dates in January. We book up fast and dates are sometimes limited.

After a date is finalized we mail the dance studio an information poster they can hang up in there lobby, information flyers, facebook graphics, and a e-mail template. All this is to help communicate with the parents about the portrait date and information explaining our services.

Where are the dance portraits photographed?

Dance portraits are either photographed at your dance studio, on a specific day, or at your dress rehearsal. Due to limited availability portraits taken at dress rehearsal may be limited

When do parents order pictures?

All orders must be placed on portrait day. Parents will be able to view all your images right after there child’s portraits are taken, instantly on our viewing stations. We do not offer online ordering and if a parent is not able to order the same day they can contact us for other arrangements.

Is there a session fee?

We do NOT charge a session fee. Because of this, all orders must be placed on portraits day.

Do you have sample prices?

Prints start off at $25 and digital images start at $35. We do not charge a session fee, there are no minimum purchases and parents can order as little or as much as they want.

How many outfits can the dancers be photographed in?

We recommend dancers choose there favorite 2 outfits to be photographed in. We do not limit the amount of outfits photographed.

Do you offer a portrait makeup day?

The times and date set for your dance studio portraits are the only available portrait days. Parents can contact us to see if we will be photographing another studio in your area that they can attend. We do offer parents the option of scheduling a custom session with us.

Does the studio have to hand out orders to the parents?

All orders will be mailed directly to the address provided on the order form within 3 weeks. Orders will not be sent to the dance studio. All orders will have a tracking number. If a parent does not receive there order within 3 weeks please have them contact us. It is easier for both the studio and us if we have direct contact with a costumer.

Can parents order there pictures online?

We DO NOT offer online ordering for parents. Because it is free for parents to take there pictures we require them to view and order directly after there pictures are taken. If a parent is not able to purchase pictures, we ask them to view there images and decide what they would like, then contact us with payment information when they are ready to place order.

What if a parent is not happy with the images taken?

Because we offer instant viewing stations that allow parents to view there images after there childs portraits, it helps eliminate not knowing what there images will look like. If a parent is not satisfied, they can tell our sales staff and we will retake there pictures.
