Things to Know

  1. The amount of memberships will be limited to keep the schedule manageable and so that our members really do really receive a premium experience
  2. The enrolment period will be short to allow a good overview of the year and the amount of sessions that will need to be scheduled.

    Enrolment will commence at 10am on Wednesday 8th September and remain open until 11.59pm on Wednesday 15th September (unless sold out prior)

  3. The calendar will open to book your family portrait session four times per year. When the calendar opens you will have one week to book in your family session for that season.
  4. The calendar will be self-scheduled by the members themselves on a first-come, first-served basis.
  5. Rescheduling for various reasons will be handled the same way it always is – we’ll look at the calendar and figure it out. If you realise your date won’t work for another reason – a travel or work conflict, for example – we will work with you to find a new date – just reach out as soon as you realise the issue.
  6. In future years, members will be asked whether they would like to renew or terminate their membership prior to the new membership enrolment period. There is no commitment beyond the year, and there will be no surprise renewals.
  7. If you choose to renew but would like to change your subscription level (up or down), you are welcome to do so without penalty, though offerings and pricing may change year to year.

frequently asked

Questions

Will I get my digital files right away, even if I've only made one or two payments before the session?

Yep! Once you sign up and make that initial payment, you can book your session as soon as the next season opens. Further, you will receive your gallery on schedule (typically 2-3 weeks after the session), and will be able to download your files and use your print credit as soon as you have access to the gallery.

I don't really think I need family photos every year. Can I buy a membership this year, drop out for next year, then join again later?

In theory you can… but there are a couple of important issues to consider.

Issue 1: Even if the membership doesn’t fill completely this year, by next year it will be full and spots might get hard to come by if members continue to renew (we don’t anticipate adding new memberships, just offering any unrenewed spots during the enrollment periods).

Issue 2: it’s likely that the price will increase in future years. By maintaining continuous membership, you’re guaranteed to be locked in at the current rate. If you drop out and re-join, you will have to do so at the rates offered that year.

Pro Tip: Remember that you can schedule your session at any time during the membership year, so from year to year you can adjust the spacing by up to 23 months (September 2021 and August 2023, for instance).

What if I sign up and there aren't any session dates available that work for me?

While we can’t guarantee that a specific date and time will be available when you go to sign up, we promise there will be lots of options available each season and will work with you to make sure you are able to book a time that suits.

What will I be able to get with my $250 print credit?

We offer a lot of really lovely items in my online store, and the print credit can be used toward any of them. Fine art prints are a perennial favorite, as are albums (you can put that $250 toward an album upgrade if you’re a Book Club member and want a bigger book or one with more pages). $250 more than covers a 12×18” frame, an 11×14” canvas, or four calendars (holiday shopping = done). There are several other options, but those should give you a sense!

How many photos can I put in my album if I join the Book Club?

Albums are 20 pages long, so they will most likely hold as many of the images from your session as you’d like to include. That said, if you like album designs with fewer images per page, you may want to add pages. Your print credit can be used toward album upgrades!

I have four kids. If I join the Honors Club, do they all receive a studio session in June?

Yes! The Medium Club membership includes an annual studio session for each child (18 and under) in the family, along with all the files from each session, no matter if you’ve got one kid or ten.

If you’ve still got questions, don’t hesitate to reach out!

We understand that this is a new concept, and we are here to clarify anything that you’re unsure of!
