Glory Days Preschool Portraits
Hello, GDP families! My name is Mary Vance, and I get the joy of photographing your sweet children this year. I’m excited to offer fine art school photos for the students and staff. My goal is to provide a simple and personal experience for you. This page will be your go-to spot for information to help you prepare for picture day and to access your galleries once they are active.
Click the following link to access your gallery and individual album. Albums are organized by the registered child's last name and first initial. (Sibling’s photos are all in the same gallery.) Passcodes for your album will be emailed to you individually.
WAIT - WHAT EXACTLY IS A FINE ART SCHOOL PORTRAIT?
I don’t know about you, but I was never a fan of the stiffly posed and forced smile images my daughters brought home from school picture day. Mottled backdrops and random props felt cheesy and never represented who my kid WAS. Fine Art School Portraits is a fresh take on school photography. The background is black and the photos will be simple and classic. Instead of forcing an expression, children will be encouraged to be themselves. Children grow and change so quickly - I want to capture just a moment in time of who they are right here, right now.
WHEN WILL YOU BE ON CAMPUS?
I will be on SPC’s campus Wednesday, November 7th and Thursday, November 8th.
WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR?
Whatever makes them comfortable! Please avoid neon colors if possible as they don’t photograph well with skin. I will have wipes for glasses and faces if we happen to catch their class after snack.
HOW WILL I GET MY PHOTOS?
Within two weeks (often faster) of your child’s photo day, you will be emailed a link to the photo gallery. (You can also revisit this page to find the gallery link once active.) There will be 2-5 images of each child presented in color and black and white in your family album. From the gallery, you will be able to order prints, canvas wraps, and digital files directly. The ordering process is simple and secure. No ordering before you see the image, no odd products or package requirements to meet. Just order what you love, sit back, and wait for the photos to be delivered to your door. Check back for an ordering video once the gallery is online.
IS THERE A SITTING FEE?
Nope! There is no charge to have your child’s photo taken. You only pay for the print products and digitals that you want, and always after you’ve seen your images.
WHAT ARE YOUR PRODUCT PRICES?
Print and digital products are ordered from your gallery. In addition to professional grade prints, you may also purchase custom canvases, digital files, and photo retouching directly from the gallery. Print prices begin at $8 for 8 wallets and $10 for a 5x7. Digital files are $15 per file or $50 for all the digitals in the gallery.
May I share my album with others?
Yes! Keep in mind that whomever you share the password with will have access to your images. This is a great option if you have family far away as prints can be delivered directly to their door.
