If you have received a access card with a personal access code, go to the "Login" page here.., enter the access code and click on "Open Album."

2. I received an email with login information - how can I order photos?

3. Is it possible to place a single order for multiple siblings?

Yes! Click on "Did you get another access code?" under the main menu "Login". You can enter up to five access codes at the same time. This way you will have access to all available photos. You can combine the order and save on shipping costs. However you must order a package per access code/child or you will not be able to continue to checkout. 

4. Do I need to order a package before ordering additional prints/products?

Please click the link below and log into your account with the email address you used to place your package order. If you did not set up an account with a password, please enter your email address and select 'Forgot password?' and follow the instructions sent to your email. Once you are logged in you should be able to order additional prints without having to order a package.

If you are still having to add a package to your cart in order to check out, please add a package first, then add your additional prints to your cart as well. Go to your cart and delete the package out of it. Doing this should let you continue to checkout with just the additional prints.

Please be patient as this is a known issue and is in the process of being fixed.

6. Does the Digital Download Package for Dance Photos include all access codes/siblings photos as well?

No. If you have multiple codes (siblings) you will have to order one Digital Download Package per access code/dancer.

No. When you order the digital download package (if option is available) you will have to order the class photos seperate in the "individual products" section as a print. This is due to copyright rules and privacy for other children in the class.

10. I received my order but I am missing photos.

Before anything else, please confirm with your child and their teacher that the photos aren't still left in their school desk or locker.

12. What is the quality of prints, posters, etc.?

We are committed to offering only the highest quality. If you are not satisfied with the quality of your photo products, please feel free to get in touch. We are devoted to your satisfaction.

13. Can I crop the images?

Yes. You will find this option within the shopping cart. If you crop the image, an enlargement of the selected area is created. Look for the stars which indicate whether the photo's resolution is sufficient for the enlargement.

14. Can I change my background selection for School Photos after my order has been placed?

No. Once your order has been processed and payment has been made, the background cannot be altered.

15. Does Alycia do re-takes or a make-up day for school photos?

Photo make-up day is reserved for students who were absent on the original photo day. If you’re not satisfied with your child’s school photo, you have the opportunity for re-takes under specific circumstances, such as if the initial photograph is blurry, the student isn’t looking at the camera, or if there’s an issue attributed to the photographer’s actions. However, it’s important to note that retakes won’t be provided solely based on personal preferences like dissatisfaction with your background choice, child’s smile, hairstyle, or clothing. Alycia makes every effort to capture your child’s most charming smile.

If your reason for re-takes falls under one of the specific circumstances, it is important to bring your original purchased photo package with you on the scheduled make-up day. If you don’t bring your photo package, your child’s photo will still be taken, but you’ll need to place a new order, and the cost of the new package won’t be covered by the photographer.

If you're unhappy with your child's picture after seeing it online following picture day and haven't purchased any packages yet, you can have your child take a new photo on make-up day and then place your order.

16. I lost my access code how can I get a new one?

Please email Alycia at

To obtain your access code for School Photos, kindly reach out to the school directly. Please note that Alycia is unable to send this information via email due to FERPA regulations.
