HOW IT WORKS

Family Photo Event does all the hard work and assumes all costs.

  • FPE will bring studio equipment to your school or scout a location convenient to your school.
  • FPE will acquire and pay for all of the necessary permits and insurance for the shoot dates.
  • FPE will arrive early on the day of the shoot and set up for the day’s photo sessions.
  • We will stick to our schedule to ensure that everyone can get their portrait session completed. FPE will shoot at least three different poses during each 15 minute portrait session. These poses can include the whole family, the children separately, one parent with each child, etc. Grandparents are also welcome.
  • Immediately following the shoot day, FPE will begin editing and processing the proof prints. At scheduled times FPE will meet back at the school individually with the families to show them their proofs and/or display the images online. At that time they may pick the photo they would like to have for their free 8 x 10 print as well as order any additional prints/sizes they might like. FPE will re-size, crop, lightly touch-up, and color-correct all prints. Prints will be delivered to the school for pick-up by parents approximately two weeks after orders are placed.

The school participates in organizing the event.

  • All the school needs to do is get the word out. The event sells itself. FPE will provide the school with a flyer photocopy-ready with all the necessary information on it for students to take home and share.
  • Your organization designates one or two coordinators to schedule the sittings in 15 minute increments on the pre-arranged weekend day for the Family Portrait Event. People who purchase a sitting call the coordinator and schedule their time and day. The school collects the $35 per sitting and pays FPE $10 of that money.
  • The day(s) of the Event, a coordinator will sit at the sign-in table to help keep things organized and on schedule. At this time they will also schedule an appointment for the family representative to view the proof prints from their session.
  • In most cases your organization provides a room or area for FPE to meet with the families and show them their proofs. At this time they will choose which image they would like to get for their free 8x10 print, and they will also be able to order any additional prints/sizes at that time. The viewings will start on Wednesday or Thursday following a weekend photo shoot. In some cases proofs may be posted online.
  • FPE will deliver the prints back to the school for collection by the families.

To guarantee a portrait event date, the school MUST sell a minimum of 25 sittings per day. Additional days may be added as needed.

Host a family portrait event and earn money for your school.

Jennifer Durham’s Family Photo Event (FPE) provides a new and unique fundraising opportunity to schools and non-profits of all types: host a portrait event and earn over 70% on each sale.

How it works: the school sells portrait sessions for $35. FPE donates $25 of that money to the school, and bonuses are available. Each session will last 15 minutes and will include the whole family. Each session comes with one FREE 8 x 10 color print and one low res file of that image. Each session will include at least 3 poses with a variety of family members or individuals in each pose.

The portrait sessions will be done at one location on pre-scheduled days at either the school or a local park on weekends.
