There are many different options for how we can run the photo day, depending on your staff’s needs and schedules. You can schedule each person into short time slots, or groups of 5 to 10 people in larger time blocks if that’s easier. Some small groups with flexible schedules can even drop in at their leisure as we finish the person before them. Afterward, your office will receive all of the photos taken (which averages from about 10-15 per person), but there are several options for choosing each person’s final photo. Your office can choose each person’s photo for them or distribute them internally for choosing if you prefer, or we can choose the best shot for each person and place those in a separate folder when they’re delivered.

The more open space you have, the better, but we can squeeze into just about any space that’s at least 8-10 feet wide by 12 feet long.
