DETOUR 2 DISCOVERY PARENT PAGE

 
 

Hello, D2D Families!

We were at your school on Monday, October 29th and Tuesday, October 30th.

We’re currently in the process of organizing and editing all of your children’s photographs.

Please bookmark this page and check back frequently for more updates.


 

We are so excited to have the opportunity to provide your school with fine art school portraits. Our goal is to provide a quality-driven experience to all of our partnered school families.

What is a 'Fine Art School Portrait'?

Fine Art School Portraits are a modern approach to school photos. No more cheesy smiles with strange backgrounds. The background will be black and the photos will be SIMPLE and CLASSIC. Instead of forcing a cheesy grin, the children will be encouraged to be themselves and will never be forced to smile. Example photos can be found HERE.

What should my child wear?

Please dress your child comfortably for picture day. Fancy outfits aren't really necessary, and photos are taken with a tight frame. Our goal is to have your child's unique personality to show through the portrait, more than the clothing. Please avoid logos, hoodies, or sweatshirts. Solid colors work best.

Are siblings welcome?

Yes, of course siblings are welcome! Please feel free to bring siblings along for portraits together and alone.

How will I order?

Within two weeks of your child’s photo day, you will be e-mailed the link to a class proofing gallery. There will be 2-5 images of each child. Images will be in both color and black and white. I do not choose which photos you print; you do. You will be able to order prints, canvas wraps, and digital files directly from the viewing gallery. The ordering process is simple and secure. The gallery will be live for seven (7) days. ALL ORDERS DELIVERED TO THE SCHOOL MUST BE PLACED IN THAT SEVEN DAY PERIOD. Once orders have been placed, your digital orders will be delivered immediately, and print orders will be delivered to your school within four weeks.


 

Here are some tips and useful information to help this day go as smoothly as possible:

  • Please drop your child off on time on the day they attend school.

  • Please dress your child comfortably for picture day. Fancy outfits aren't really necessary, and photos are taken with a tight frame. Our goal is to have your child's unique personality to show through the portrait, more than the clothing. Please avoid logos, hoodies, or sweatshirts. Solid colors work best.

  • Shots will be candid, and we will allow your child to just be themselves!

  • We will be creating composite photos for each classroom, instead of taking a "live" group photo. We would love for everyone to be included!

  • Every child present will have their photo taken, unless you let us know that you do not want one. There is NO obligation to purchase your child's photos, and you'll have the option to purchase prints, canvases, or digital files via your private online gallery link.

  • Siblings will be photographed together, as well as individually.

  • We will provide 2-5 images of each child. Images will be in both color and black & white.
