FAQ for Preschool Photography

Q: Does the school sell the photographs?

A: No, parents receive proofs with a QR code, gallery link, and password. A Gallery is set up for each child for two weeks. Parents order directly online, and orders are shipped to their homes. Additional prints need to be ordered within 2 weeks from receiving proofs.

Q: How do I schedule a date for photographs?

A: To schedule a date for photographs, simply call us at 805-280-5711, and we will set up a date for you.

Q: Do you photograph siblings together?

A: Yes, we offer sibling packages. Please make sure your child’s teacher is aware that you would like sibling portraits.

Q: Do you offer staff discounts?

A: Yes, staff receives a 50% discount off their children’s portraits. Additionally, staff portraits are provided with a complimentary 5X7 and 4 wallets.

Q: Do you take class photos?

A: Yes, class composites are available for order online.

Q: Can parents request specific poses or backgrounds for their child’s portraits?

A: While we strive to capture each child’s unique personality, specific requests for poses can typically be accommodated, however, the background is chosen by the school. Please communicate any preferences to your photographer before the session.

Q: What if I want to cancel our photo dates?

A: Cancellations must be made 60 days prior to your photo date or are subject to a cancellation fee. Once you have booked our services, it is a commitment by both parties to have Busy Bee Portraits as the photographer for your school. If any other schools inquire about the date/dates you have reserved, they are turned away. The date/dates are exclusively reserved for your school/schools. If you cancel the dates you have committed to without sufficient notice, we cannot guarantee we will be able to fill dates that had been exclusively reserved for your school, which of course is a big loss of income. If you wish to reschedule your dates, we will do our best to accommodate you with sufficient notice.

Q: What areas do you service?

A: We provide service to Santa Barbara, the Central Coast, and Los Angeles areas of California, as well as Las Vegas, NV.
