This post is written to help make for a more organized and efficient sports photo day.
A quick note: We will have a table where you can ask questions, get change, see samples of the items we offer, get a payment envelope, and pay with a credit or debit card on photo day.
Here are the basics.
We now use QR codes to keep things organized.
Each player and team have their own QR code.
When the player is ready to get their photo taken, our assistant will guide them in holding the QR code so that the photographer can take their picture with it. They will hand it back to the assistant, who will help the child pose, and we will take the photo. We use the QR codes with our lab’s software to match photos to names.
All players taking a photo need to have the QR code and a completed order envelope or online printout. If parents are going to pay later, we will make that note on the order envelope. This will give parents who may not have been ready to buy a package that day to purchase online later. Online sales will be available for 24 hours after the last photo day. Prices will increase for orders placed after 24 hours.
We can not take a picture without a QR code, an order envelope, or a printed online order.
The Memory Mate: The memory mate is an 8×10 print with your child’s and their team’s photos. The information printed on the memory mate comes from your order form. What you enter on the form, the child’s and team names, all go onto the memory mate. If you enter only your child’s first name, that will be all that shows on the memory mate. If you have two kids in the photo, we need both their names.
Please ask questions at the table and not of the photographers if possible; that will keep the photos moving smoothly.
Buddy and sibling shots need a separate order form.
Want two kids in the same photo? No problem.
If they are on the same team, just fill out one envelope with their names. (if a memory mate is in your order, what you enter on the order form will be on the memory mate.)
If you have a question before photo day, you can email me at email@example.com or text me on my cell phone at 559-697-3880. See you on photo day.
