THE VALUE OF PRINTS IN A DIGITAL WORLD
Fine portraits become heirlooms, and are meant to be displayed and enjoyed for many years. In 50 years, DVD and flash drive technology will surely be obsolete, but the printed photo will always be relevant and replicable. Thus, while optional, I encourage all clients to make the wise investment in printed products from their online gallery, as well.
Products ordered from your online gallery ship directly to you from the highest quality printer available, and are fully guaranteed and refundable if dissatisfied. Prints made elsewhere cannot be guaranteed, as many popular, low-cost printers today use printers with fewer ink colors, no color correction, and lower-quality paper and finish.
Proofs are generally available to all clients within 48 hours of your session. Your online gallery remains active for 30 days, during which time, you and your loved ones may order products at any time. Clients may opt to extend their 30 day viewing and ordering period by paying an additional $20.
Retainers are non-refundable, but may be applied to a session on a future date if rescheduling is necessary due to weather or other conflicts beyond the photographer’s control. Forms of payment include cash, check, and all major credit cards upon request. Detailed print pricing is available upon request prior to your session.
Return customers are always thanked with automatically reduced product rates.
