Information for Parent/Guardian Re: School Portrait Sitting

Your child’s school portraits this year will be taken by Adams Photography Inc.
We are ready to provide a safe environment for both the students, faculty and workers of Adams Photography during
this Pandemic. Adams Photography Staff will be wearing masks at all times. As part of the NS Government mandate
students in grade 3/4 and above will be required to wear a mask to the photo session which can be taken off once they
are standing in place for their portrait. Sanitizer will be readily available and used during photoshoots. Students are reminded to
use physical distancing while waiting. This year we will not be doing group class pictures and will replace these with class
composites. We expect this to be a very smooth process and realize these are special moments in your child’s life and
we look forward to preserving these for you.

Our company offers high quality portraits at an affordable price. We do our utmost to produce professional portraits of every client.
We are sending this flyer to help ensure everything you may need to know before your child’s portrait sitting can be answered.

important. Late orders cannot be returned with the original order and will could be delayed by
another 4-6 weeks.

4. Reshoot – (for absentees, bad expressions, and closed eyes only)
The date for re-shoots will be coordinated through the school administration office and
announcements sent home with the students. Please note if your first portrait session is
acceptable please do not take the chance of a reshoot, because it will not be possible
to receive an order from the first session once you have the reshoot taken.
One composite class picture will be given to each student free of charge.
