Ordering

Q: How do I order?
A: Ordering can be done through our website by clicking the “Online Ordering” link at the top of the page. Please read the information on the ensuing page BEFORE YOU CLICK the link below that section to continue on to the galleries. A new window will open up which contains galleries of all of the events we have been photographing. Locate the gallery for your event. You can enter a key word that pertains to your school/sport/event etc., to narrow down the list. Click the gallery to log in and view/order.

Q: What is my “Online Code”?
A: That will vary depending upon the type of event it is:

  •      -Fall or Spring school pictures: student’s school ID number
  •      -Senior: student’s school ID number
  •      -Sports/Event: code is usually assigned by coach who emails a pdf document with all log-in instructions

 

Q: What email address do I use?
A: Any valid email address will work.

Q: How long does it take to receive my order?
A: Anywhere from 2-4 weeks. This is due to the the large volume of orders we receive and the post-production editing processes. There is a lot that has to happen to get your images ready for us to print.

Q: Can I get my order faster?
A: Yes, rush services are available for an additional fee. Please refer to the price list or the online ordering catalog. The expedited time applies to business days and does NOT include post office delivery times or if we are waiting on you to follow up with any questions/problems with your order.

Q: Do you retouch my images?
A: If it is a senior or family/children portrait order, then we retouch anything that we are going to print for you. This is a time consuming process. If it is a school/sports/event order, then retouching is available for an additional fee.

Q: Do you sell digital files?
A: Yes, we offer a few digital file options for those who wish to do their own retouching and printing. Files are “as is”, which means you do all of your own work. Files are the same high resolution that comes out of our cameras. A full copyright release is included.

Q: Do you print my images in your office?
A: No. We have always used a professional print lab and will continue to do so. This is done because their quality is superior to any printer/paper purchased off the shelf at an office supply store.

Q: How do I receive my order?
A:–Portrait Orders: All portrait orders will be mailed to you.
School/Sports: If ordered before a designated due date, you may choose to have them delivered back to the school. Anything after the due date will only be mailed.

Q: How do you mail pictures without them getting bent?
A: We don’t just fold them and stick them in a No. 9 envelope as some seem to think. We use cardboard mailers for all pictures and they are clearly marked “Photos – Do Not Bend”.

Q: What is your policy on returned checks?
A: Returned checks are handled by an outside check collecting service, Cashflow Solutions, Inc. Under agreement of this check collecting service, checks are presented ONLY ONCE by our bank. If the check is returned after this first presentation, our bank transfers the check to Cashflow Solutions, Inc. for recovery and it is out of our hands. You will need to contact Cashflow Solutions, Inc. to make payment. After they collect and process your payment, it is not immediately sent to us. We only receive payments from them once a week. The returned check charge is around $30.00 for each check. If your check do not clear, you can reach them at 1-800-460-0124 or www.followthefrog.com

 

Seniors

Yearbook Seniors

We currently contract with Lovejoy HS, Wylie HS, and Wylie East HS to provide formal senior images for their yearbooks. These images are taken during the summer due to yearbook publisher deadlines. We only have a limited number of days that we set aside for these type of sessions. If you miss these days, you will not be in the yearbook.

Casual Senior Sessions

In addition to the yearbook sessions, we also offer casual senior portrait sessions. These are done on location during any time of the year. Samples can be seen in the Portfolio section of this site.
