Today there are so many consumer labs offering an endless array of photo products online. So naturally people ask me if they can “just” buy the image files so they can create their own photo books, canvas prints, etc…

But there are so many reasons to let me take care of that for you.

I want to  provide you with a complete solution for your photography needs! From helping you plan your personalized photo session, to choosing your favorite images, to printing your art, and delivering it to you – ready to display. Shoot, I’ll even help you hang it on your wall!

1. Save time and energy

Raise your hand if the image files from your last session are still sitting on a thumb drive. Maybe you downloaded them to your computer but never printed them or you lost them in a hard-drive crash. It happens to the best of us! 

It can be overwhelming making all these decisions.

  • What style of art should I order? What are my options and the pros and cons?
  • Which images and sizes will look great together on my wall??
  • Should I buy a book? or Image folio?

It’s a time-consuming process. You’re busy with life; work, running the kids to all their activities, and trying to find time to spend together as a family. Ordering wall art, photo books just doesn’t make the top of your priority list. It could take months to get to it, if you do at all.

I guide you through your options and handle the work for you so that when you’re finished, you have printed art in your hands, ready to hang on the wall, or place on your shelf. No need for that follow-up trip to Michaels or Hobby Lobby for frames, mats etc… and NO additional time spent online designing and ordering “all the pretty things”.

2. Accurate Prints Guaranteed

It’s a time-consuming process. 

It’s important to me that your fine art prints meet the highest archival standards. So I use a professional print lab, calibrate my computer display, and test my prints regularly. I hand-sharpen your large prints to the size you’ve ordered, so they’ll look amazing on your wall.

3. Beautiful Prints… Guaranteed

It’s important to me that your photo prints meet the highest archival standards. So I use a professional print lab, calibrate my computer display, and use only fine-art paper. I hand-sharpen your large prints to the size you’ve ordered, so they’ll look amazing on your wall.

If you use a consumer lab, and your photos don’t look great, you’re likely to think that’s MY fault. 😢 So i order them personally to make sure they’re perfect.

4. See Before you Buy

At your ordering appointment, you’ll be able to check out my products in person.  I’ve got samples of most items 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.
