You planned your perfect outfits, you wrangled everyone together to get your photos taken, you all smiled for the camera, and now comes the anticipation of what’s next. The end result. We want to make sure you have all of the tools that you need to make the most out of your photography session so here is what you can expect after your session.

Check Your Email

In three to five days we will send you an email with a link to view your portrait proofs online. We generally choose 60-90 of the best images from your hour-long session and put them online for you to view. All of your portraits have been edited for proper lighting and color-balance.  We can also do more extensive retouching on your portraits so feel free to chat with us about your requests.  Once your portraits are online, you can also view them here. Just put in your last name and you will be able to easily find your portraits.

Print, Publish and of Course…SHARE Your Portraits!

We like options. We like to give you options. So that is what we did. Choose one or all of the options below, it’s totally up to you! You can:

  • Order the USB Drive of your ENTIRE session

Most families will go this route. You will receive the 60-90 images from your session on a USB drive in the mail. This way you have the rights to all of your photos and you can print, post and share to your hearts desire. Shipping is included and with the purchase of the USB you will also receive five free basic photo retouches. Some edits include – removing shine, fixing fly-away hairs, removing people from the background of the photo, removing blemishes, age lines, bug bites… you name it.

Extras: Who doesn’t love a good deal? The first few weeks after your session there will be a special discount for the USB drive, so look out for that. The sooner you order after your session happens, the more likelihood of you being able to lock in the savings!

Once you purchase the USB you will also get 25% off of prints and canvases for the life of the album.  We recommend using consumer photo labs like Shutterfly or MPix for smaller prints, but for any enlargements including Canvas Wall-Art we recommend using our Pro-Lab for the highest quality available only to professional photogs.  That’s why we offer you 25%.  All our USB VIP customers have been blown away by the quality of the canvases they order.

  • Order prints from the website

You can order a variety of prints ranging from wallet-size to poster-size. Prices will vary by size

  • Order individual digital high resolution image

Have a few favorites that you are wanting for Christmas cards, to post on social media, or to send to your relatives? You can choose this option for that. Simply choose the image(s) that you would like, checkout, and provide an email address. That way we can send them through email right away. To get more bang for your buck though, we do recommend ordering the entire USB drive.

  • Order canvas prints

There are two kinds of canvases:

  1. Gallery Wrap Canvases (unframed ready-to-hang…or our NEW Floating Frame Canvas)

Gallery Wrap Canvases are printed using archival inks, sprayed with UV-protection and the canvas is wrapped around the sides of a 1.5″ interior wood frame. This canvas is shipped ready to hang! Here is an example.

  1. Mounted Canvases

Mounted canvases are printed using archival inks, sprayed with UV-protection and mounted to Masonite board. You should frame these without glass like an oil painting.  (frames in sample photos not included)

When viewing your images, you are also able to look at a wall designer. You can take a picture of your room, and upload it and then choose different sizes of canvases to see which one is the best fit for your space. When viewing your portraits online (we recommend using a computer browser rather than a mobile device) there is an option that says “Wall Designer”. Have fun playing around in there.

Give the gift of lasting memories with a portrait book. Choose your favorite 25-40 images then we will custom design your portrait book and send it your way!

For any additional assistance, feel free to contact us directly through email or over the phone. We hope you enjoyed your session and look forward to seeing you again.
