Photo Shoot Orders

Costume Photo Shoot

COSTUMES: Studio costumes are provided for dancers for both the Rudolph and Nutcracker shows. Dancers are responsible for their own tights, dance shoes and any under garments that are 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 Bun Bar for hair and makeup options. 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 and four wallet size photos. You may choose to order a second photo package for $27 for the same dancer in a 2nd costume or pose with a friend/sibling. Be sure to select an additional 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 directing them to the SmugMug site through and to select their preferred pose for the photo package. There is a short window of time to do this. The deadline will be included in the email. Parents will need 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 host a Bun Bar 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.

 MORE INFO: 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 photo packets, and are changing to a different costumes please spread your time slots appointments apart from each other by one or two time slots. This allows you enough time for your costume change, and allows others the opportunity to sign up time slots.

There are three time slots each 15 minutes. Please be ready at the top of your time slot so when your name is called, you can go right in.
