Newborn Package Investment Guide

I often receive questions regarding digital files. It's just part of the instant gratification era to which we have all become accustomed. We love online galleries & the quick easy nature it seems to bring. It's great for social media postings and sharing with family & friends. But often times the photos stop there. We get busy or overwhelmed with the entire process of ordering print products with 25 paper options & 100 size options.

And there it was, why would I start a service, but not finish until the end product? Why let Walgreens or Sam’s determine how my photograph should or should not look? Why do my clients often come back to me for prints because their prints came out with a weird color? A surgeon stitches the patient back up after surgery, a gardener clears up the pile of grass after mowing, a professor will lecture and then he will grade your test papers. Well, you're catching what I'm throwing.

Preparation for a digital image requires the same amount of skill set & time as a print product. The end product I give to you is merely a tangible object for all to admire in way that doesn’t involve a screen. Your keepsake folio print is matted with archival frames, sealed and provided from my professional lab that is capable of handling all of my camera's color data. A digital image is NOT faster, easier, or less time consuming. However, you will receive BOTH matted print and the full resolution digital copy because, I want you to own both at no additional cost to you. Not only that, but I keep my production time between 7-10 days including the lab print time as they are sent with overnight shipping. I am still able to provide your session within the same amount of time if you were just purchasing digitals.

The ultimate question is always this - why have my prints when you can print your own? The honest answer is simply this: I am providing a way for you to preserve those prints. A keepsake collector's item which is like an album in and of itself. In addition, you have the freedom to do what you wish with the digital file as well. You may not go through them daily or even monthly, but our babies don't keep. They will grow up in a blink of eye and one day have families of their own. When that day comes, these photographs will be the most cherished possession in comparison to any luxury brand product or appliance you'll ever own. And, no one ever - ever regrets having family portraits done. This is coming from a Mom with children ranging from 2 years old to 21 years old – my children have changed in the blink of an eye. Every photo I have ever taken is a memory etched in time that I can look at, move myself back, & treasure that moment once again.
