Up & Away Photography photographs students in public and private schools and daycares in Cobb, Cherokee, and Fulton counties (Acworth, Kennesaw, Woodstock, Roswell, Alpharetta, Canton, Marietta, Cartersville, and surrounding areas).

What age range of students do you photograph?
Up & Away Photography specializes in boutique preschool and daycare portraiture, so the ideal client is ages 6 weeks to 6 years. However, if your school has students in higher grades, that’s not a problem at all.

Does it cost the school anything to have portraits taken?
The school does not pay a dime to have portraits of the children taken!

Do you pay commission to the school?
All schools earn a commission on the sales from their portrait day(s).


DURING YOUR SCHOOL’S PORTRAIT DAY

Do you offer sibling portraits?
Absolutely! All students who have a sibling can be photographed together, regardless of whether or not that sibling attends the school.

When do you schedule portrait sessions?
Photos are taken first thing in the morning, when the children are fresh and awake (and clean!). Depending on the number of students at your school and their age ranges, several days may be scheduled to ensure all students have the opportunity for top-notch portraits.

How long does each child’s portrait session take?
Depending on the age of the child, anywhere from a minute or two to several minutes. Because every attempt is made to get personal with the children and to capture authentic smiles, there is not the “assembly line”-type structure to school portraits with Up & Away Photography.

How many poses does each child get?
While specific poses are certainly thought out for each setup, each child will have a variety of photos taken and many times, a child’s gallery will include different poses / looks than those of other students. Because of the boutique style of Up & Away Photography’s portraiture, there are no “canned” poses and every child will have a unique experience.


AFTER YOUR SCHOOL’S PORTRAIT DAY

How do parent place orders?
Each school receives a beautiful, easy-to-use online website that showcases each child's photos in individually password-protected online galleries. Parents order right there in the gallery; it's even easy to view sibling galleries and check out all at once! 

If some parents at your school need assistance with online ordering or prefer to pay via cash or check, this can always be arranged.

How long does it take for portraits to arrive?
Items will arrive at the school within two weeks of the final order date. If a parent or family member has chosen to have an order shipped directly to them, the portraits will be shipped within two weeks of the final order date.

What types of payment are accepted?
Online ordering accepts all major credit cards. For families that do not have online ordering access, payment can be made via cash, check, or money order.

Can families place a second order or reorder more prints?
Of course! Contact Up & Away Photography for assistance.
