Today there are so many consumer labs offering an endless array of products online. So naturally people ask me if they can “just” buy the image files and order their own products online.

But raise your hand if the image files from your last session are still sitting on a thumb drive. Do you know where they are?? Or maybe you downloaded them to your computer but never printed them. Or worse, you lost them in a hard-drive crash.

I want to provide a complete solution! From helping you plan what you want to capture, to printing your art and making sure it’s perfect, then delivering it to you ready to display. (Shoot, I’ll help you hang it up!)

1. Time Saved/Hassle Avoided

It can be overwhelming to decide which products you want and which photos to use. What will look best on the wall? In what sizes? Which photos do you want in your book? It’s a time-consuming process when you don’t do it every day. Even sizing and cropping photo files can be confusing for some people.

Even if you’re comfortable with all of that, do you have the time to mess with it? You’re busy with life! Work, running the kids to sports and activities, taking time together as a family… ordering wall art photo books and such just doesn’t make the top of most parent’s priority list! So it’s understandable why those photos are still on a thumb drive!

When you work with me I take care of it all so that when you’re finished, you have printed art in your hands, ready to hang on the wall, or place on your shelf. It’s quick and easy. No need for a follow-up trip to Michael’s or Hobby Lobby for frames, mats etc… and NO additional time spent online designing and ordering “all the pretty things”. My finished art comes ready to display!

2. Accurate Prints Guaranteed

I want you to have quality art that is printed perfectly and made to last. My computer is calibrated to match my pro lab’s printer. I individually hand-sharpen prints based on the size you want so they will look their best! If they don’t come back perfect, my lab will fix them.

If you use another lab I can’t guarantee quality and if your photos don’t look great, you and your friends are likely to think that’s MY fault. 😢 This is the biggest reason I prefer to handle the printing.

3. Quality & Variety of Products

I can provide professional products you won’t find at the online stores. I’m familiar with the ins and outs of thee different products and can guide you to the items that will fit your tastes, look great in your home and hold up over time.

4. See Before you Buy

When you’re interested in buying something, you want to know what you’re getting. You do want to pick it up and check it out in person!

When we have your in-person ordering appointment I’m happy to bring you samples of the products I offer! 😊 I want you to feel the nice texture of the book covers, turn the pages and feel the thickness and quality. I want you to hold the story box in your hands and know what you’re getting before your order! You can’t get that online! I’ve got samples of almost everything I sell from simple prints to books, albums and story boxes. I’m proud to show you some really gorgeous ways to display your family photos!

5. Design Services

I’d love to design a photo gallery specifically for the space you want to fill. You’ll get to see what your photos will look like in your space so you’re sure to get the perfect size and arrangement.

Making a book or album can be daunting when you aren’t familiar with the online tools for building them. I’ve got that mastered and can take care of this time-consuming job. You get to preview it and request edits before I order.

I’ve got experience and understand all the options. So I can make recommendations and can guarantee a beautiful finished product! That’s what I want to do for you! ☺️

So lets do a quick review…

I can save you time, help you make decisions, and guarantee the quality of your albums and wall art. Best of all, I do all the work so you don’t have a thing to worry about.
