What should we expect the photo session to look like?
We recommend masks at the session except when you are having your photo taken. Also, we ask that you maintain 6 feet of social distance and no more than 3 people will be in the photo area/room in addition to the photographer at one time. Both their safety and yours are our top concern.
Will I be able to attend another session on campus if I miss mine?
Yes. Please check on any restrictions with the host house. Some organizations still have restrictions on visitors.
Are there any changes to attire?
No. Drapes are back this year. Digital Pix will provide the velvet drapes and pearl necklaces. If your organization prefers to stick with a different attire, that's completely fine as well.
What if I cannot make my assigned time? Can I just come whenever I like?
We realize things happen, but scheduling (now more than ever) is important in maintaining a safe flow and curbing the number of people at the session at one time. Check with your photo chair for another open time slot and reschedule.

What does it mean if a section is unavailable?
Sections are locked based on where you are at in the composite process. Before your photo session, you have the ability to provide contact information, composite details, update your roster, and sign-up members for the session. After your photo session, these areas are locked, and you can communicate any changes with your Account Representative. Once your proof is ready, you will unlock the Review Your Proof section. Lastly, if there is any balances on your account, the billing section will be available for you to pay online.
Payment is due on the day of photography. If you need to make other payment arrangements, contact our Billing Department online or by phone (815) 363-2800. Late fees will be added if payment is not received promptly.
Can there be multiple payments or does it have to be a single payment?
We work with each group’s specific needs. Multiple payments may be acceptable, but must be established with our Billing Department prior to the day of photography. Note: Not being paid in full or late payments may delay the delivery of your master composite and/or copies.
What form of payment do you accept for the composite?
Please bring a single check on the day of photography to pay for composite fees. If paying individually, we accept check or credit card. No cash will be collected on photo day. Reminder: If you are paying your sitting fee online with a credit card, payment is due on the day of photography. If you have questions or need help submitting payment, please contact us within 48 hours of your photography session; otherwise a late fee will be applied.
Are the picture chairman/class representative and faculty members required to pay for placement on the composite?
Yes, every person appearing on your composite or having their picture taken pays a participation fee. Each member appearing on your composite will receive an individual miniature copy of the Master Composite.
What is a "participant" and how are fees calculated?
Participants are the members of your program or chapter who appear with a picture on the composite or have been photographed for the composite. Participant fees are non-refundable. All photographs requested to be removed are archived and may be used on future composites. Note: Photos pulled from our archives will incur an additional fee.
What is the cost to use a previous year photo?
We understand that not all members can attend your assigned session. Each person using a previous year pose will incur an additional fee to help cover the cost to store, retrieve, retouch and color correct the image so that it looks amazing on the finished composite.
How is the composite shipping and handling cost calculated?
Specialty materials and packaging are used to ensure safe arrival of your composite. Due to the unique shape and size of the package, shipping costs cannot be calculated on a traditional weight based scale. Our shipping and handling fees are based on the number of members appearing on your composite, which directly correlates with the size of your Master Composite.
The photography location is your choice. The room must be at least 18x20 with a minimum ceiling height of 8’. We ask that the room be available an hour and a half before and an hour after your scheduled photo session time for equipment set up and teardown, and that two tables are available to accommodate the photographer’s computer equipment.
Where will I meet the photographer and how will I recognize her/him?
Your photographer will contact you a few days before the photo session. At this time you can determine a meeting place. He/she will be dressed professionally and have a name badge that says Digital Pix.
Will I need to reserve parking for the photographer?
If a parking permit is required on your campus, please either provide one for the photographer or let him/her know where they can obtain the permit on campus.
What if some members were not photographed?
If you have members who could not attend your session, you have a few options. They may use Last Year’s Image (archived photo) if they were photographed in a previous year. You may also call our Scheduling Department at (815) 363-2800 to determine if Digital Pix will be back on your campus at another nearby location for a makeup day, or they may appear with their name only listed as “Not Pictured.” Note: Each person on the composite will receive a miniature composite copy.
I missed the photography session. Is there anywhere to make up the session?
As a convenience, you can attend any of our sessions at no additional charge. Please call our office at (815) 363-2800 to find another location in your area where we might have a photographer.
How and when do we choose composite designs and colors?
After you confirm your session, you can login to the Planner and visit the Composite Details section to choose your composite options. If you are a current customer, then you will be able to review last year's option. If you would like to keep the options the same, click the green "Yes! Keep it the same" button. If you would like to make any changes, click the red "No, it needs changes" button and list out your changes. New customers have the choice of uploading a photo of their composite, or picking new options with our Composite Designer. Have a question? Click the "Chat with Us" button or call (815) 363-2800.
Are gag photos allowed?
Due to restrictions from many National Headquarters, Digital Pix cannot produce composites containing gag photos, including goofy hats, false names, costumes, hand gestures, etc., that would reflect poorly on the organization.
Your chapter or organization makes the clothing decision. Be sure to check with your school or class representative for any restrictions. Options include velvet drapes (ask about our color selection), scrubs, graduation gowns, white nursing uniforms, and street clothes.
Long sleeves and solid colors are most flattering. Please avoid wearing checkered or small prints due to distortion occurring with busy patterns. We suggest sorority members wear tube tops underneath the velvet drapes to eliminate strap marks and to make changing clothes more convenient.
What does Digital Pix provide for clothing and accessories for our members?
Digital Pix provides a wide selection of attire options, including black jackets, drapes, and pearls. The drape selections are black, blue, red and pink. Inform your photographer of your color choice to ensure it is available for your session. Note: Digital Pix does not supply ties.
What if we changed attire from a previous year?
The most important thing to remember when changing attire from a previous year is that it makes it difficult to use previous year’s images for members not photographed. Therefore, you will need to encourage all members to be photographed in the newly selected attire. In some cases, Digital Pix can provide digital attire changes to last year’s photograph for a per person fee.
Where should I wear my nursing pin?
Pins should be worn on a designated side (usually the left side) slightly higher than a name tag. They must be visible in a head and shoulders photograph. Digital Pix does not supply nursing pins as they are organization specific. Please have 3 pins available for your photo session. Be conscious of long hair that can cover pins, especially if they are required on your composite.
Can students and faculty be photographed wearing nursing caps for their portraits, even if we are not wearing caps on the composite?
Yes, individuals can wear different attire for their portraits. If this is the case, inform the photographer of what you want and they will accommodate you when possible and if time allows. In the case of nursing caps, you can wear them as an alternative to the composite photograph.
Your Account Representative is a highly trained customer service agent assigned to your composite. They will serve as your eyes and ears within Digital Pix to answer any questions, offer suggestions, handle your requests, ensure that every detail of your composite is attended to, and keep your composite on track for an on-time delivery.
When will I be contacted about composite construction?
Allowing for shipping and processing, you can expect your Account Representative to contact you approximately 5-7 days after you have completed your last day of photography.
What information is required in order for my composite to be made?
The following information is required to begin composite construction: a complete Member Roster indicating use of any archived photos; a current Officer List; a Composite Construction form outlining all the specific details for the look and layout of the composite; and a Picture Chairperson form providing detailed contact and shipping information.
What if a member is not photographed on our scheduled day?
We strive for full participation. You have 3 options for members who cannot attend your scheduled session. (1) If they have been photographed by Digital Pix in the past, we can use an archived photo, (2) if we are going to be back on campus, you can attend any other Digital Pix session at no charge, or (3) we can list them as “Not Pictured”. Fees apply for use of last year images and not pictured names.
What is Digital Pix’s Philanthropy program?
It is a program that allows you to make certain upgrades to your composite choices that result in Digital Pix making a generous donation to your Sorority’s National Foundation. For more information, see our Philanthropy Program page.
Can I change the composite options I chose on the day of photography?
You can change your composite options at anytime during correspondence with your Account Representative. Once your file has been sent for Lay-up, additional costs may be incurred to make changes.
When should I expect to see a composite proof?
Once you have resolved all outstanding issues with your Account Representative, you can expect to receive an electronic proof of your composite within 7-10 days.
How many proofs can I receive?
You can receive as many proofs as necessary to ensure your composite is exactly as you envisioned; however, there may be a fee for three or more proof changes. The first proof is created based on all the instructions you provide to us. If changes are necessary to correct any oversights or errors, we will always send your first revision at no charge.

What if I want to cancel my order?

Deluxe Retouching services and Digital Images are nonrefundable after the work has been completed or delivered.
