Packages are prepaid by cash, checks, money orders and credit cards (Visa, Mastercard & American Express). Please see the DancePix representative for payment by credit card. No child will be photographed individually without payment. No Exceptions! Make checks payable to: DancePix, LLC.

If you have two children, they may be photographed together in any package. A DancePix associate will help to total your order.
DancePix also offers specialty items—statues, key chains, mugs and photos on canvas and fine art paper. These will be on display at your school on picture day. They have a special-order form—please ask for it. They can be ordered after you receive your finished photos.
- Dancers should arrive on the set “camera ready”, with costumes, hair, and make-up in place before they walk onto the background.
- Please make costume changes quickly so we can stay on schedule.
- If the dancer has a favorite pose, be sure to mention it to the poser and photographer.
- Because every photo gets tender loving care, you should expect to receive your finished photos by USPS Priority Mail in about 8 weeks (about 2 months) of the shoot day.
