About AdvancePay Credit and NEW Max Out Level

Parents/Guardians wanting to order portraits in costume will need to make an AdvancePay Credit Purchase prior to your child's photoday. All credit purchased is directly applied to your PhotoDay account where it will be applied towards prints, packages, or digital download purchases of your choosing. Instead of requiring you to pay full price for photos or packages upfront, AdvancePay gives you affordability and flexibility to choose the package that works best for you once you receive your gallery. You can think of it like a gift card, or a retainer. You do not need to make an AdvanceCredit purchase for the group photo to be included in your gallery, it will automatically appear in your gallery with the purchase of your individual; you can add it to a package to purchase or choose to opt out. All packages are customizable to mix as you like. Purchased credit is non-refundable.


$15 Advance Pay Credit per One Individual/Dance

$30 Advance Pay Credit per Two Individuals/Dances

$45 Advance Pay Credit per Three Individuals/Dances

$60 Advance Pay Credit per Four Individuals/Dances

$75 Advance Pay Credit per Five Individuals/Dances


MAX OUT LEVEL

$90 Advance Pay Credit per Six or More Individuals/Dances


***If you are NOT wanting any photos of your child, then you will NOT need to make an AdvancePay credit purchase and there is no need to fill in this form.


About Siblings

If you have more than one child and would like a sibling photo, please note on your form. Sibling photos will require $15 AdvancePay for each sibling portrait you would like.

Make sure to add it on to your order when purchasing credit. Siblings will be grouped together in the same gallery for convenience. Just get in line together for photos at your convenience when it works best for you.


VERY IMPORTANT - On Picture Day

Groups and Individuals will be taken at the same time as your class. Please allow room in your schedule for portraits to run ahead/behind schedule.

You must come ready to your scheduled time, do not be late. We will do our best to get the group photo taken first, followed by individuals.

To get your individual picture taken, parents and/or students will need to check in with the photographer and wait in line. The photographer is NOT responsible for chasing you down to get your individual. All dancers must get in line and claim your prepaid credit. After your AdvancePay Credit is verified, your photos will be taken.


Communication & Gallery Access to Purchase Credits & See Photos

Once you complete your online registration, a profile for your family/dancer will be created for you in PhotoDay. You will receive an email with links and directions to access your gallery, preview the packages being offered, and be able to make any AdvancePay credit purchases you may need. Please check your spam periodically.
