The date for school photography can be found on the front of your child’s envelope. You will need to return your order by this day.
Replacement envelopes are available at your school office. If you wish to order online and have lost your original envelope you can contact the school office for your unique ‘access key’.
We photograph every student at school on the day, regardless of whether they have an order or not. If you ordered online then you can keep your envelope as we will generate a replacement one for you. If you were wanting to pay by cash/cheque then you can simply forward your envelope directly to our office. If you are within 2 weeks of photo day then your order will be delivered with everyone else’s. Later than 2 weeks and your order may come after the main delivery.

Sometimes different combinations of operating systems, devices, browsers and your own security settings can affect how the online system operates. Trying a different computer or browser (For example Edge or Internet Explorer or Mozilla) can often help.

This usually occurs because A): Your spam filter has moved it to your spam folder or B): You have inadvertently typed your email address incorrectly. If this is the case you will need to contact our office to correct the error. Failure to do so will mean you won’t receive your link for the ‘digital download’ part of your order.

If you have your original envelope you can order online at any time. You can also choose to send your order directly to us, or drop it in to our office at anytime. However orders received after the main delivery has been made to school will incur a price increase.
