Imagine, you just had a perfect photo shoot. You are so in love with your pictures. You have the best intention to put them on the wall and make an album, so you can sit down with your kids one day and flip through the pages, and relive those memories over and over again. But where are you going to print your pictures? As you probably already know printing at Walmart or similar consumer labs is not a good idea. It's unpredictable how your prints will turn out and those prints are not archival. Will they fade in a year or two, will they still be looking ok in 10 or 20 years? If you want to make sure your photos last a lifetime (or longer), you need to consider investing in professional photo printing services. By having archival prints made of your favorite shots, you'll ensure that they'll remain in great condition no matter what happens to the digitals, which are not archival. Keep in mind that your hard drive can crash anytime and your USB thumb drive can become unreadable. That's why printing your pictures is so important!

You won't go home with a bunch of digital photos you don't know what to do with - I'll help you pick out the perfect prints, albums, and other goods that will work best for your family.

After your fine art photography session, usually within three weeks, we will meet again for your viewing and ordering appointment. I will prepare a slideshow of your gallery of images for you to view together. This will be a special moment for you as you will see all your pictures for the first time.
At your ordering appointment, I will assist you in selecting your favorite images from your session. We will discuss the custom design for your albums and/or portfolio boxes or any other custom art you love. I can also help you design wall art using pictures of the walls of your own home to ensure that your artwork fits your space and looks incredible.

You are welcome to schedule your pre-session design consultation to visit the studio and see the custom artwork we can create for your home.
How to take care of your fine art prints
We used to think that a photo was a permanent record of a moment in time, but it turns out that even photos can fade and deteriorate over time. So if you want your photos to last, you need to take some extra steps to make sure they're preserved properly.
When it comes to preserving family photos, it's all about protecting them from the environment and handling them properly. Just think of how a museum cares for its artifacts and other treasures. Display and storage temperature, humidity, and light remain within specific parameters, and touching the exhibits is usually forbidden. Eating, drinking, and smoking in galleries or storage areas is typically prohibited as well, too. In addition, pieces are usually kept in climate-controlled storage the majority of the time and are shown for just weeks or a few months at a time.
Your home is not a museum and your photos are not artifacts, but those images are family treasures. How do you protect them?
Here are a few tips for preserving your photos: first, don't store them in direct sunlight or near heat sources. Also, avoid storing them in damp places or areas with high levels of humidity. And finally, make sure they're stored in acid-free boxes.
Did you know that the attic, basement, and garage are not good places to store them? That's because they tend to have a lot of temperature fluctuations, which can cause your photos to stick together and eventually mold.
