School & Preschool FAQ
How do I find out when Picture Day is?
Your school will send a Picture Day Parent Letter home with each student to inform you of the date(s) for school photos along with instructions.
What if my child missed Picture Day?
Check with the school to see if the photographer is currently at another location in your town. If so, you can visit that location and have the school photos taken. Heirloom Portraits Inc. does not offer retakes in remote locations.
Can the students wear green even though the pictures are being taken with green screen technology?
Heirloom Portraits Inc. uses chromakey green backgrounds, allowing us to offer a variety of backgrounds for school photos. If a child does decide to wear green, the technology can differentiate between the subject’s clothes and the green background. In some rare instances the proof will not represent this, but all finished products will be adjusted correctly.
What if I didn’t return my order(s) to the school in time for the deadline?
If you miss the deadline date, you can order online with your webcode or simply mail your order and payment directly to our office at:
Heirloom Portraits Inc.
P.O. Box 444
Schomberg, ON LOG 1T0

If you are mailing more than one order, you only pay one late fee for all orders mailed to the same address. You may also order your school photos by phone, or fax or email if you if you wish to pay by credit card. You may also order Online if you have a webcode.
I found an order form for school photos that were taken in a previous year. May I still order the package?
Yes. The images are kept on file for five years. Please include the late fee with your order. If you do not have the proof order form, there is $20 archive fee to retrieve the images from our archive.
How does the family discount work?
This discount is available to families with three or more children. With family discounts, the full price applies to the first two children and a 50% discount applies to the third, fourth, fifth etc. You may only take the discount on packages of equal or lesser value. (i.e.: You may not pay full price for two package C’s and then take 50% off of a package A for the third, etc. children). Please be sure to indicate all siblings’
names on the order form. The family discount is only for school photos and does not apply to ‘buddy’, graduation, sports or family portraits. The family discount is not available online.
I have three children all in different schools. Can I still get the discount?
Yes. Submit the orders together and keep in mind that the portraits will be returned to the school the student attends.
Can I order more pictures after I’ve already sent my order form in?
