You will never see a craigslist ad from our company offering to pay $10 and hour for someone to come and click your dance pictures. Our photographers have all been professionals for years and trained in studio lighting, experienced with dance positioning and a knowledge and love for working with children. This is reflected in the quality and authenticity of the pictures.
IT ALL STARTS WITH A VERY TAILORED SCHEDULE!
We work individually (and effortlessly) with directors to get an efficient and achievable schedule for photo day/s taking into account the amount, age, and skill level of dancers per class in order to allot perfect amount of time! We strive on timeliness and believe that this is the key to happy dancers, families, teachers and photographers! Just ask about our many scheduling techniques that make the day go smooth! We offer weekday/night and weekend shooting options.
ONLY THE BEST FROM START TO FINISH!
Not only do we use top of the line equipment and rely on world-class printing labs to supply high-quality prints and products. We also only team up with the most amazing set of talented photographers and assistants to capture these moments. All of our photographers have dance knowledge therefore producing great shots and poses. We strive for pointed toes, turned out legs and beautiful technique whenever possible! We are dancers or dance moms, so we know technique, positioning and costuming unlike any other photography option around!
3. CUSTOMER SERVICE
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU… AND… AND YOU!
We like to provide allot of information to directors and dancers to keep everyone well-informed of the process and how to make photo day/s relaxing and successful! We will provide you with an email you can send out a week before as well as handouts for dancers, Print/Product examples on picture day and Post Marketing Emails to reduce any confusion by keeping everyone in the loop. We also LOVE being in direct contact with our dancer families in that we ask that any feedback and questions come directly to us so we can provide the best answers and options quickly. This eliminates A LOT of unnecessary in-between work for the director/s, allowing them to concentrate on running their studio.
4. MODERN STYLE
JUST CHECK OUT ANY IMAGE ON THIS SITE TO SEE!
We love to work with you to choose the background style for your photoshoot. Whether it is a crisp, white background that makes the subjects and colors pop or a classic gray that looks clean and incredibly elegant, we use a special lighting and background set up to create flawless final images! While we stress dance technique and highlight our attention to detail we also strive for a memorable expression from each dancer whether it’s that beautiful smile or sweet shyness, we want the dancer’s personality to shine. Our group shots are always clean and well-thought out as well. Beyond the cool shots, we offer fun ways to display them with prints of various finishes and sizes and unique, yet useful products like statuettes, mousepads, keychains, and more.
5. SIMPLE, CUSTOMIZABLE ORDERING
WE OFFER THE EASIEST ORDERING PROCESS OUT THERE!
We provide the studio with two different options when it comes to ordering. They are pre-pay and a proof option. With the pre-pay option, parents choose their packages; 1 image is provided and all monies are paid and collected on picture day. Portraits arrive 2-3 weeks later and they are ready to send home. Parents will still have the option to go online and order additional prints. It is simple and effective.
With the proofing option, a sheet with the dancer’s pictures on it will arrive at the studio 7-10 days after picture day. On the sheet will be a website address and password so the parents can go online, view several images and then place their orders. Anyone can then go in and create the perfect order for them, adding different prints or products in different sizes with different finishes, crop to their liking and pay, all from their computer. Photo orders can be shipped to the studio or directly to homes (*for an additional charge) which adds an extra bit of ease for directors and families, as well as allowing anyone to order (like grandma or auntie) from anywhere!
6 . EASE FOR DIRECTORS
SIT BACK AND RELAX, WE’VE GOT THIS!
Our system allows directors the most efficient and relaxing process for photo day/s by not only having efficient processes in place but feeling relaxed knowing experts are at the helm. We offer lots of information outlets before, during and after to keep you and dancers informed limiting the number of questions you might have dealt with in the past! With experienced photographers behind the lens, it is a lot easier for photo day/s to be a little bit of a break for directors. We still LOVE input, and ask for one of your teachers to assist in posing to make sure every pose/class is perfect but we have the basics down therefore minimizing pressure! We stress to dancers and families that we love them being in touch with us by directly contacting us with feedback/questions and we will keep directors in the loop when necessary. Also, your marketing images are taken care of for the year or years to come, we LOVE when studios use our work to show off their dancers and talent.
WE LOVE TO PARTNER WITH THE BEST!
We like to reward you for your successes! We offer a kickback to your studio for every package purchased (read below in fundraiser for details.) Also, as dance lover’s and supporters, we want to be a part of your studio year long by contributing time, talent and/or dollars to fundraising efforts, fun facebook marketing or participating in other studio events. We provide images for studio employees and directors, files for marketing your studio to the masses and discounts on products/prints for in-studio displays.
