Dance pictures are a fantastic way to commemorate your dancer’s experience at CREO and celebrate their team’s accomplishment so far in the year. We have partnered with the professional photographers at LifeImage LLC for many years! Check out their work at LifeImageLLC.com
PICTURE DAY SCHEDULES
Families with multiple dancers may be scheduled for more than one day. Please know we do our absolute best to make the picture day scheduling convenient for as many families as possible.
If you do not plan to attend picture day – Please let us know so we can plan accordingly. Remember that even if you do not wish to purchase photos, your dancer’s classmates are depending on their attendance for a group photo of the whole class included in some packages!
Prior to picture day, your dancer will receive hard copy order forms for each class he or she is enrolled in so you may consider photo packages you would like to order.
Ordering Deadline – Orders must be made on picture day so that staff know which images must be captured. Discounted pricing and certain products are only available on orders made on picture day, so it is in your best interest to arrive having thoughtfully considered your order. A LifeImage representative will be present on picture day to answer any questions!
Payment – Picture fees are paid to LifeImage directly by check or credit card only. CREO cannot charge your Jackrabbit account for pictures. Pictures must be paid for on picture day.
Order Review – Shortly after Picture Day, CREO will notify our families when pictures are available for review on the Life Image website. Families wishing to make changes to their order may contact Life Image directly in the few days after images are posted.

Note: We respect parents’ decisions not to put makeup on their child. We want you to feel that your dancer looks age appropriate in their photo. However, it is important to inform you that picture day lighting is very strong and can wash your dancers out. A little bit of makeup on the brows, cheeks, and lips can ensure that dancers’ beautiful features stand out in their pictures!
