You Ought to be in Pictures! 

IHM's new pictorial directory is in production!
Frequently Asked Questions:
  
Q:  When and where will family portraits be taken?
      A: Portraits will be taken October 9th-13th in the office and learning center area. 
​Q:  When is my appointment?  
     A:  You will receive a call to remind you of your appointment from Re:MEMBER Church Directories.  To verify your appointment time, contact Vickie Ware at (678) 234-5382. 
Q:  I don't have appointment.  Can I still make one? 
     A:  There are a few open time slots on Tuesday, October 9th.  Contact Vickie Ware  at (678) 234-5382. 
Q:  How long will the picture take?
     A:  Each session takes about an hour, including registration, posing for portraits, making your selection for the directory/free photo, and purchasing any additional prints.
Q:  How much will this cost?  
     A:  Each family that participates gets a free 8x10 portrait and a copy of the directory.  If you choose to purchase additional professional portraits to share with family and friends, you can do so at your own cost. 
Q:  How should I dress?  What color should I wear?
     A:  It is up to you! That said, the professionals recommend you select solid colors other than white, and coordinate with the other members in your family. 
Q:  Can I bring my furry family members?
     A:  We recognize that pets are family, too.  If your pet is comfortable and safe around people, bring them.  That said, remember that you will need to be at church for an hour, so make sure your furry family members don't get stressed out and cause harm to themselves or anyone else. 
Q:  I keep getting calls about making an appointment, and I've already made mine. 
     A:  All registered members of IHM received robo-calls about the appointments on the three weekends when we were making appointments, regardless if you had already scheduled or not.  You will also receive a call the week of October 8th, reminding you of your appointment time. 
Q:  Can you just use my picture from the last directory?
     A:  The previous IHM pictorial directory was produced by a different company, so we do not have access to those photographs.  Besides, we know you've gotten prettier and more handsome since then!  
Q:  Can I just submit a digital photograph?
     A:  Companies who create church directories for "free" are able to do so as they subsidize the free photos and directories with the money they make from selling packages of their professional portraits to the church members.  Having the common "look" of the portraits of all the church members makes for a more beautiful directory.  If you are simply not available on the planned portrait days, or we cannot get 20 or more families for a future date, then digital images will be accepted.  There is a specific requirement for the photo size/quality which will be shared at a later date.  There is a $10 charge for any digital submissions. 

Q:  Do I need to be a registered member of IHM to participate?
     A:  Our preference is that all people who regularly attend Immaculate Heart of Mary be registered members.  That said, if you frequent IHM and are active in the parish, regardless of your registration status, we want you to feel a part of our parish and be in the directory.   For your convenience, we will have parish registration forms available for you when you come for your portrait.
