I will go through the images from your session and select the best ones. I edit each individual portrait. It is my goal to provide you with 20-30 final images. The total count is based on each individual session. I will also include some black and white enhancements for the images that I think will look beautiful in this style. Please allow 2-3 weeks for processing. Once your images are ready, we will give you a call and schedule a time for you to come into the studio for an ordering appointment. This is when you will choose your artwork, therefore we ask that you bring along all decision makers to this appointment. After your ordering appointment, we like to post a blog about your session. We share this blog on our Facebook page, so be sure to like us so you can see when this gets posted, and share your beautiful images with all of your friends and family.
Before we delve into pricing, I would like to take a moment to discuss the importance of printing your portraits. Technology changes. Remember floppy disks? No? That’s because they were replaced with CDs, which are being replaced with FlashDrives. Technology changes, but prints are forever! Plus...technology can fail, and files can corrupt. Don’t take the chance at losing your precious portraits. A photograph isn’t a photograph until it is printed! Huh? Well, until it becomes a print, a photograph is just a digital file on some sort of device. Weird to think of it like that, isn’t it? If you print your portrait and hang it on your wall, you will see it daily. Some days you might just walk on past it, but some days you will look at it and remember that exact moment in time. The laughter, the love and the joy. So, as you are looking over pricing options, remember why it is important to get a beautiful wall art for your home.
Professional Prints vs Drugstore Prints:
I always recommend printing your image through me. My computer is color calibrated to print through my professional print lab. Professional labs utilize high quality ink and paper, therefore creating a more vivid and longer lasting print. Drugstore print labs have a tendency to change the color on printing. Sometimes causing the image to have a green, or magenta tint to it. You have put a lot of thought into having beautiful professional portraits, so you want your wall art to be professional quality as well.
Create Your Own Collection is our most popular option. You choose a beautiful art piece, then you choose which size digital files you would like. When you come to the studio for your ordering appointment, we will sit down with you and help you choose the pricing that works best for you.
If you aren't interested in purchasing a wall art, we do offer digital files A La Carte. We also have Birth Announcement cards available.
