Picture Day


recital picture info:

we encourage all dancers to participate in their class group photo as they will be included in the printed recital program.  in addition dancers may elect to have individual portraits or ad photos taken for the program.  

  • Please be ready 20 minutes before your scheduled picture time. This is very important as dancers have missed their class photos in the past due to tardiness. Dancers need to arrive in their first costume with hair and make-up completed.
  • Class photos will be taken in studio “c”. Individual photos and program ad photos will be taken in studio “a”. Studio “b” will be the girls dressing room for those dancers in multiple classes. Boys will dress in the boy’s dressing room.
  • Absolutely no parents will be allowed in studio “a” or “c”. This is a great distraction to the dancers and photographer. You may wait in the dressing room or come back to retrieve your child.  Space and parking is limited.
  • Please follow your costume checklist for details on costumes, hair and accessories (checklists are sent home in the costume garment bag).  Make-up should be worn.  This is a good time to practice your stage make-up, click HERE for details.
  • You must fill out your order form and include a check payable to Nichols Photography (NOT FDA!) for class or individual photos you wish to purchase. Individual photos will not be taken without payment and your payment must include the sitting fee.
  • All program ad phots will be worked in between individual class photos in studio “a”
  • All times are estimated, we will do our best to stay on schedule however your patience is greatly appreciated!
