About Photo Day

Approximately 2-3 weeks prior to the photography date, we will ask your school to supply us a student list. This list should include name, grade, homeroom and teacher’s name. We would like to have the file for this information via email. The file format should be Excel, comma delimited.
A suitable place for picture taking would be: gym, stage, library, and empty classrooms (without desks).
Our photography setup takes an area of 15 x15 foot. This allows us enough room for students to move through the process and create a smooth picture day. We are happy to stop by your school to see what would work best for everyone.
The average class of 25 students takes approximately:

  • K-2: 25 min.
  • 3-6: 20 min.
  • 7-12: 15-20 min
Classes should arrive at the photographer in an orderly fashion with the help of a teacher present. Students should come to the photographer with the picture envelope in hand.
Yes, although we try not to make picture day the school’s responsibility, the day will move along smoother with the school’s help. In many cases the school will provide a staff member or volunteer to help coordinate the flow of children. We welcome any participation, knowing this will only help to make the picture day experience go more smoothly. Please provide iPhotoSchools with a schedule that is to be followed, just email it to us ahead of time and we will go over it with our photographer. Gym time, lunch and other issues should be considered by the school to assure a good work flow.
We photograph all students regardless. Photos will be needed for the class photo and yearbook, and this keeps the student from feeling left out.
