Today there are many online consumer labs offering an endless array of photo products online. So many clients want to purchase their digital images and later create their own photo books and prints. Why pay more, right?! Well, there are actually some excellent reasons to order professional photo prints and products from your photographer instead of purchasing them from an online printing company.

I’m proud to offer my families a complete solution for their photography needs! From helping you plan your photo session, to choosing your favorite images and beautiful products to display them, to delivering your beautiful products to you – ready to display.

1. A Personal Assistant

Raise your hand if the image files from your last session are still sitting on a thumb drive of CD. 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! 

For some folks, it’s a bit overwhelming to make all these decisions.

  • What style of photo prints 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?
  • Which products would make nice photo gifts?

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. If you’re like most parents, ordering wall art or 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 like to provide a guided tour through all the 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. There’s 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 books.

2. Professional Quality Photos

Have you ever ordered prints, only to be disappointed in the quality? Have your images been unsharp, too dark or light, or did the color just look wrong? If your photo prints don’t look great, you’re likely to think that’s your photographer’s fault. That’s why include fine art prints with all my packages.

My computer display is calibrated to match my pro lab’s printers. I hand-sharpen your large prints to the sizes you’ve ordered, so they’ll look amazing on your wall at a natural viewing distance.

It’s important to me that your fine art prints meet the highest archival standards, which means they’ll last a lifetime and beyond. I only use the best-quality paper my lab offers; a pure cellulose watercolor paper that a renders rich color and a gorgeous textured surface. You’ll definitely see the difference between professional photo prints and those from a consumer lab! In fact, consumer labs don’t offer the high-quality paper I provide.

3. 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 in your home or gift your portraits to family and friends.

I’ve got traditional framed art for your wall as well as canvas wraps and modern metal prints. My story boxes are lovely sets of matted prints, displayed in beautiful boxes, like the bamboo one shown below. A book or album is another great way to print your family photos. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to show these treasures to your grand-children some day?

4. 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 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.
