Studio Pictures at Kim Hinkle Photography

1095 Cty Hwy 1, Fairfield, IL

May 9th-11th: Competition Dance, Recreational Dance, and Competition Cheer

Studio pictures will be May 9th-May 11th.   We want to apologize again for having to re-schedule pictures twice this year.  It’s really been out of our control.  We truly appreciate your cooperation. We can’t wait to see all of our kiddos looking beautiful for pictures.  

It is extremely important that you’re present for picture day.  We want everyone’s picture to be on our picture board at the studio.  If your child isn’t present, their picture will NOT be on the board.  We will NOT be photo shopping anyone this year.  It’s too much additional work for Kim.  It’s very important that you are present during your scheduled time.  Do NOT be late as it will cause us to get off schedule and run behind. Order forms will be handed out when we have them from Kim.  We ask that you have these COMPLETED before coming the day of pictures.  If you have any questions regarding your scheduled times, feel free to contact Nina or see the office.  If you have questions regarding pictures and prices, please message Kim Hinkle Photography on Facebook.

Below you will find scheduled times for May 9th-May 11th.  Please note that we schedule each group within a time frame.  This works great as long as everyone is dressed and ready at your scheduled time.  We will NOT wait if you’re late.

We want to remind you that there will be NO classes during picture week except for Thursday night recreational dance classes. Please see attached note for times.   All of our staff will be assisting with pictures on the other nights.    

All competitive teams will do hair & make up just as you do for competition.  All other classes can do a high curly pony or buns. If your costumes came with a headpiece, you need to wear that.  All rec dance classes can wear tan colored paws or tan colored slip-on jazz shoes.  

We want to remind parents that you’re not allowed in the photography room per Kim’s request.  It makes things too chaotic.  We are able to keep the kids focused and get amazing shots when there is little to no distractions.   

Competition dancers and cheerleaders: We ask that you know what poses you will be doing for each routine when you go back to the photography room.  The majority of you have danced/cheered for years.  We don’t want to give you the same pose or similar poses each year.  I would also recommend this for any recreational child who has taken for several years.  We will still be posing, but it’s always great to have something in mind that you’ve never done before.

Kim’s facility is extremely nice.  We ask that you respect her facility and everything in it.  We ask that you pick up after yourself at the end of the day.  Please NO food!  You can bring a bottle of water if desired. We also ask that you only bring one parent/guardian with you to pictures.  There won’t be space for any more than that.  If you have to bring small children, they will need to be supervised at all times.  Again, please make sure that you’re taking care of Kim’s facility.  

Please note that times aren’t necessarily on your actual day that you’re at the studio.  We’ve condensed times this year to cut back on down time. Again, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.  We’re looking forward to picture day! Can’t wait to see you there!

Legg Up pictures will be at the studio of Kim Hinkle Photography next week. This year, order forms will only be online. This will save you the time and trouble of having to worry about hanging onto the paper order form and making sure you know where it is the day of your pictures. Below is the link to access the online prepay order form for photos next week.

Please note: If your child is going to be photographed, an online order must be completed and paid for by Sunday, May 8th at 11:59pm.

All packages are set up for one pose/dance per package. When you first access the prepay form, you will add your child's name and complete the form for each group they are in. You will then select the package you would like for that dance/cheer group. This must be done for each group they are part of. If you have more than one child, the same applies.

If you are planning to order an Elite Collage, only choose that package for one of your groups. The studio will contact you to find out what additional costumes you would like added to the collage.

We are looking forward to a great photoweek! If you have any questions regarding the online photo order form, please contact Kim Hinkle at 618-599-0819 or email at
