FAQ for School 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.

Q: How do I schedule a date for photographs?

A: Call our appointment hotline at 805-280-5711 and we will set up a date for you.

Q: Do you photograph siblings together?

A: Yes, we do sibling packages. Please make sure the request is indicated on the information form.

Q: Do you offer staff discounts?

A: Yes. Staff receives a 50% discount off their children’s portraits.

Q: Do you do staff photos?

A: Yes. We provide a 5X7 and 4 wallets complimentary for staff members.

Q: Do you do class photos?

A: We offer class composites. 

Q: I’ve scheduled a date for portraits. What do I do next?

A: You will receive a package with instructions, and a picture day poster to hang two weeks prior to your session.

     Your photographer will call you to confirm details, and your background choice.

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 just 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 & Los Angeles areas of California, and Las Vegas, NV.
