Our portrait session was fabulous, when will I see my images?
Following your session I take great care to process each of your images to reflect my colorful, artistic style. Your images will be available for a viewing and design appointment approximately two weeks following your session. Each client receives a personal viewing and design appointment with me where I will go through all your images with you. I will guide you on how to best display your photographic art. My goal is to provide you with beautiful custom art for your home that you will adore for a lifetime!
Do you offer digital files?
Yes, I do offer individual high resolution digital files and also offer collections of digital files that include printing rights. I strongly believe in the importance of tangible prints so each digital file and all digital collections also include corresponding printed pieces along with the high resolution digital images. Digital files are NOT included in your session fee and are sold separately. High resolution digital collections start at $795.
I also include a low resolution sharing size file with each and every desk, wall print or other product that you order. Sharing size files are great for posting on social media and e-mailing family & friends.
