THE IMPORTANCE OF PRINTS…
One day your children will look for photos of you. What will they find? Our current photos may be on Facebook, Instagram or in a cloud, but how will these benefit future generations if they don’t have your passwords? Flash drives and DVD’s won’t always be the standard medium or even accessible in 10 year’s time (remember the floppy disk?). The only true way to archive your images is to print them. Google’s VP Vint Ceref even cautions, “We don’t want our digital lives to fade away. If we want to preserve them the same way we preserve books, we need to make sure that the digital objects we create will be rendered far into the future. If there are pictures that you really really care about print them out, literally.”
I offer a full service photography experience. I will hold your hand through every step of the process… from designing your ideal session, wardrobe selection and personal shopping through to planning your interior wall arrangements and hand-delivering your beautiful products.
My session fee is $190 for weekdays / $350 for weekends or studio sessions with professional hair and makeup. This covers your entire photoshoot, including my time and talent to design, style, photograph and edit your session. I photograph both on-location and in studio.
Approximately 2 weeks after your photoshoot, we will meet again for your Reveal & Order Session. Custom albums, leather reveal and folio boxes, framed gallery canvases and prints are sold separately. Images start at $150. Most clients invest between $800 and $8,000 however what you purchase is entirely up to you. And you won’t make that decision until you are looking at your beautiful, edited images. A matching social media digital is included with every image purchase.
During your Reveal & Order Session, I will guide you through your session images, helping you select those that you love most, even previewing virtual wall arrangements with images from your own walls so that you’ll be sure to make the perfect choices to compliment your home and decor.
I offer premium, museum-quality products made to last for generations… products that become priceless as the years go by. In 20 years time, you will look at the photographs I’ve created for you and will say “These are more priceless than anything I could ever own.”
