how to download digital files

how to purchase prints

Let's get started, check out these quick videos I made for you with step-by-step instructions on how to view and order your kiddo's images directly from the gallery. The first one is about ordering digital files and the second one is specifically about purchasing prints. All ordering FAQs are covered, so check it out!


How to get your photos...

  1. Login by entering the email address you want to use for purchasing and receiving digital files. 

  2. Navigate to your child’s album.

  3. The password is the first 4 digits of your child’s birthdate, no dashes. (i.e. 1120 for November 20th). If your child's birthday is March 2nd the password would be 302. With just three digits. For the Sibling albums, the password is your oldest child's password. 

  4. Shop till you drop! There are digital images and print packages. Go ahead and knock out your holiday gift shopping. 

  5. FREE shipping on orders of $150+ and some amazing discounts on digital purchases for families with siblings. Visit the Info/Pricing tab in your gallery for more details. 

Order deadline - July 7th

Orders are due by midnight on July 7th, 2022. Please be sure to place your order before this date. Print products will NOT be available after this date. If you change your mind about ordering digital files, a re-upload fee of $25 per gallery will be applied.

When will I receive my print order?

Digital orders will be delivered immediately via email - you’ll receive a link to download and save the images, along with a print release. All physical products will be available for pickup 5-10 business days after the order deadline at Start Smart. Want them shipped to you, let me know!



Can I take screenshots?


No, you can't. All of the images are copyrighted so taking screenshots is not allowed.  By participating in picture day, you agree that you will not take screenshots of the images and will and refrain from posting to social media until after images are purchased. Thanks for understanding!

What are fine art portraits?

A fine art portrait session at a daycare is a boutique experience in a very quick time-frame. Your child will be photographed in approximately 2 minutes. You receive personal and professional service and beautiful, artistic images that you will cherish forever. You will book a time slot for each child - have two kids? You will need two time slots. Want sibling photos? Book three spots (one for each child and then one for siblings). These sessions are not meant for family portraits - if you'd like one of those you can book one here.

These types of sessions are similar to what your kids would receive in their school or daycare. You get the option to purchase physical prints or the digital copies of their portraits. The biggest difference between these portraits and the ones they get at school or daycare? They're way more beautiful (eek! I said it!). Does your child do home schooling and they don't even have the option of getting school portraits? This pop-up is the perfect solution to that!


I will never force your kiddos to smile. No awkward poses or faces, just your authentic child. I'm a mama to two toddlers and absolutely understand what it takes to connect with kiddos. The results are genuine and timeless portraits.  I provide a fun and comfortable experience for your children, without the props. It's an environment where your kids can relax and be themselves! 

Photos will be taken with a solid backdrop. The result is a clean, classic and timeless portrait that you will want to hang in your home.

Approximately one week after the pop takes place you will receive a password locked gallery of your session. At that time you will have the option to keep the package you originally purchased (if you purchased an early-bird package) or you can opt to upgrade to another package (you'll love so many - it's sure to happen!)

what services do you offer?

Families are linked to password-protected online ordering galleries - in fact, everything is online! Each child will be provided 2-5 images, presented in both color and black and white. The family may chose the photos they want printed, as opposed to having a pose chosen for them. I also provide digital images for future printing and archiving. A detailed PDF describing all ordering procedures and shooting day preparation will be provided to you.

All physical products will be available for pickup 5-10 business days after the order deadline.


how many children can you accommodate?

This service is meant for little ones and sibling groupings. This service is not meant for family portraits.


are these images expensive?

I offer a variety of collections and a-la-carte products to fit everyone's needs.
