Step Two: Picture Day
Make sure your student is looking their best when the bus arrives, and we'll take care of the rest. Our team only photographs in the morning before lunch and recess to ensure that every student looks their best when they arrive to our photography sets.
Refer to your school's parent dashboard for any and all information pertaining to your school's picture day, including what day your student will be photographed.
Step Three: Ordering
About 3 weeks after your student is photographed, their online gallery will be ready to view and order. We do not do any pre-ordering or pre-payments, and ordering pictures is optional. All of our orders are ship-to-home for a small fee or free with a minimum purchase.
- If you signed your student up with us through your school's parent dashboard, our team will email you when their gallery is ready.
- If you did not sign up your student with us, your school will be responsible in communicating to you when their gallery is ready.
Frequently Asked Questions
Please read through our most commonly asked questions about our school picture day process. If your question is not answered, feel free to submit a question to our studio using the form below.
Do I have to register my student for pictures this year?
Signing up is optional and free. If you do not sign your student up, they will still be photographed by our team.
To sign your student up, head to your school's parent dashboard. If you do not know your school's parent dashboard URL, use our school finder search box below.
MAKE-UPS VS. RETAKES WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE & WHAT IS THE PROCESS THIS YEAR?
Traditionally, a retake picture day was for both absent students and for care takers who wanted new pictures of their student(s). This year, we are splitting up that process into two different picture days. One for the school and one for care takers.
- Make-Up Picture Day: This picture day is for the school and for absent students only. This picture day happens the week after the school's regular scheduled picture days. This ensures we are able to deliver a complete image catalog to the school in a timely manner. If your student was absent for their picture day, refer to your school's make-up picture day to find out what day they will be photographed.
- Retake Picture Day: This picture day is for care takers and will be for any care takers who wish to have a new photo taken of their student(s). This picture day will happen after school hours, on school grounds, and care takers will be responsible for participating in this picture day. The sign-up for retakes will be available once your school's student galleries are live.
How do I order?
Bloom does not accept any pre-payment or pre-orders. You can order online through your student's picture day gallery using a credit or debit card. If for any reason you cannot place an order online or by using a credit or debit card, you can contact our studio to schedule a time to place an order in person at our studio.
How do I order for multiple students?
Approx. 3 weeks after your students are photographed, you will receive a gallery for each student photographed, and you will need to order from each gallery separately. As long as you use the same email address when you log into each gallery, you will be able to add all of your items from each gallery into the same shopping cart for easy checkout. Keep in mind, this only works for galleries created from the same picture day. Meaning, you cannot check out in one shopping cart from both a fall and spring picture day gallery. We do not combine galleries for the reason that our pricing is structured for individual students.
What if I missed retakes?
If you missed your school's retakes, your option is to be added to our in-studio retake waitlist. Head to our Ask Us A Question form below to inquire with us about our waitlist.
How much does it cost?
There is no fee for students to be photographed and no obligation to order. While there is no obligation to order, we greatly appreciate any orders that are placed with us. There is also no cost to your school to have our company come out to photograph all the students, staff and class pictures that happen throughout the year. This is one of the many reasons we rely on creating images that parents will love. If for any reason you are not in love with your images, please reach out to us to discuss your options for a retake of your student. Our current package pricing is available to view on this page above.
How do I order a class composite?
For any school offering class composites. Please note, not all schools offer class composites.
Ordering Instructions: After logging into your student's gallery, select the image you would like in your composite. Click the BUY PHOTO button, select the CLASS COMPOSITE tab and add to your cart.
Why is there a © watermark on my photos?
To put it honestly, so people do not steal the images that we need to sell in order for us to continue to provide free photography services for the schools and districts that we contract with. Think of it as our version of a security tag at a department store.
If you are finding it hard to see your images and would like some additional options to view and order your photos, you can contact us through our Ask Us a Question Form and ask to view them differently. Asking nicely always earns brownie points with us also!
Can I get a picture of my children together?
Our school picture days are set up for individual students only. If you would like your children to be photographed together, check out our family sessions that we offer. Details on how to book a family session are on your school's parent dashboard. If you do not know your school's parent dashboard URL, use our school finder search box below.
When will my gallery be ready and how do I order photos?
You will receive a password-protected gallery containing just your students pictures about 3 weeks after your school's picture day. Ordering instructions will be communicated from either us or your school through your school's parent dashboard website.
- If you registered your student with us and gave us your email, you will receive communication from us.
- If you did not register your student with us, you will receive communication from your school.
If you feel like you missed an email, or want to check to see if your student's gallery is ready, head to your school's parent dashboard to check when your student's gallery will be ready. If you do not know your school's parent dashboard URL, use our school finder search box below.
What’s my gallery password?
It will either be your student’s ID number if they were assigned one from your school district, or something custom that your school has decided to use. If your student does not have an ID number, please refer to your school's dashboard for that information. If you do not know your school's parent dashboard URL, use our school finder search box below.
What happens about bad weather?
It’s Colorado! We’ll wait it out if we can, otherwise it will be at our photographers' discretion to reschedule a picture day due to weather or other things that might be out of our control. We hope this is not the case, but our team will do our best to accommodate rescheduling. You will receive a notification from either us or your school if your picture day is rescheduled with new dates.
How much is shipping?
All print orders are ship to home. Our ship to home fee is $4.95 and for any orders over $55, it’s free. Digital Negatives are instantly delivered to your email after your order is placed with us, and there is no shipping charge unless your order included prints. We do not offer shipping to the school or the option to pick your order up from our studio.
