Photo Shoot Orders

Spring Costume Photo Shoot

COSTUMES: Dancers will receive their costume for spring show prior to the photo shoot, except for dancers in levels 4-6 ballet and levels 3-6 jazz who use studio costumes. Dancers should arrive at least 10 minutes prior to their time slot in order to check in and get the costume from the parents in charge. Dancers are responsible to wear their own tights, dance shoes and any under garments that may be needed for their costume. BE SURE TO SPECIFY EACH COSTUME/PART FOR EACH PACKAGE or if it is with a sibling or friend in the original costume. See info below on the The Bun Bar for hair and makeup option. Remember, the photos are for you and your family, so you can decide if you want your dancer to have some light make-up or not.

PACKAGE PRICES: Photo Packages are $37 each and include one 5X7, two 4X6 photos and four wallets. You may choose to order a second photo package for $27 for the same dancer in a 2nd costume or a pose with a friend/sibling. Be sure to select a second time slot, up to three maximum. The additional package pricing is only available for a 2nd costume or joint picture. For another dancer, you must submit a separate form.

PHOTO SELECTION AND ORDERING: Shortly after the photo shoot, parents will receive an email with instructions to go on to the smugmug site through and select their preferred pose for the Photo Package. There will be a short window of time to do this. The deadline will be included in the email. Parents will need to be able to sign in to an account on smugmug through their facebook or by creating an account in smugmug in order to choose their pose. Please leave a comment on the selected photo (not gallery) after you sign in. If a choice is not submitted in this way by the deadline, the photographer will choose the pose for the package. All of the photos taken will be posted to the smugmug site for parents to make additional purchases.

BUN BAR: State Street Ballet Young Dancers will have the Bun Bar set up during the Photo Shoot. For a special Photo Shoot price of $5, dancers can get their hair done and have makeup applied for the photo shoot. Be sure to allow an extra 15 minutes prior to your photo time to use the Bun Bar.

If you are taking a second photo pose with a sibling or friend make sure to select a second time slot for this.

If you are taking a second pose, but are not changing into another costume you can make your appointment time slots back to back.

If ordering a second or more photo packets, and you are having to make a quick change to a different costumes please spread your time slots appointments apart from each other by one or two time slots.This will allow you to have enough time for your quick change, and will also allow for other people taking single poses to take this single time slot.

All time slots are 15 minutes for 3 sessions. Please be ready at the top of your 15 minute time slot so that when your name is called, you can go right in.
