Professional, high quality portraits at school photo prices . . .
A quick head's up here. If you have read our "Heart-Felt Message" you know our philosophy regarding pricing so you can just get back to the business of your life; you have heard enough about this subject from me already. If not, dear customer, here is my manifesto of commerce...
Okay, so let's talk frankly about our prices. No tap dancing. We provide professional portraits at school photography prices. If you truly compare us to our competitors product and services you will find we are all pretty darn close in price, but not at all close in quality or services. Advantage: Mugsyclicks!
We use some of the best photographers your community has to offer. They spend time being trained in Mugshots Style to produce the best product possible. We all use expensive professional gear. We have almost 20 years experience in the "new school of photography". Our combined years of photography experience is in the hundreds!
Our photographers shoot for free unless you like what they produce and decide to purchase. One print alone from many of these photographers would set you back about $100. You as parents are using your combined buying power to get a GREAT PRICE on a professional product at ABSOLUTELY NO RISK TO YOU. There is no 'send your child to school with a check in the envelope and cross your fingers that you'll like what you've bought'. This is a free service with no commitment to buy. So yes, we charge a nominal $10 shoot fee, yet only in the case of a customer-elected re-shoot.
We offer multiple images to preview before purchasing. If we don't do a good job you don't order. We take credit cards, offer online services, we give you extended purchasing deadlines.
Our investment in online ordering services is helping to heal many a broken family argument over who got the "picture envelope"... they can view and order separately and have the photos delivered directly to their home. Relatives can order for themselves as well.
We provide a large variety of free services to your schools. Our company is incredibly customer service focused in this seasonal "quick in quick out" industry.
So there it is... a long winded answer, which in shorthand translates to, " we will never be the cheapest- but we will always strive to be the best value"
Photo Scholarships are available. If you have recently lost your job or if your economic situation is such that you need help purchasing your child's photos you may email us - firstname.lastname@example.org with a request for a photo scholarship. (Having been a single mom raising 2 kids I know what it is to be challenged and we will do what we can to help you out.)
