Next Steps... and FAQ

Q:  How long before we see the images?

A:  We will schedule a viewing/ordering session typically two to three weeks following your session. This meeting in our studio or over web conference and allows us to present your images and walk you through the many different options for showcasing them in your home.  A web conference allows us to talk over the phone while viewing my computer screen online.  This allows us to zoom in to images, show you cropping, and discuss potential retouching options.

Q:  How many photos will I see?

A:  Refer to your session type for specifics. James carefully edits each session and presents the best of the best for your consideration.

Q:  Can I have a web gallery?

A:  After we meet for your viewing/ ordering session, we will post a web gallery of your favorites for friends and family to order prints. The gallery will be live for 15 days.

Q:  How do I get a few of my favorites for social sharing?

A:  Any image ordered as an 8x10 or larger print, or in a book (meaning it's been fully enhanced) can also be delivered as a social media file at no extra cost.  

Q:  How is a social media file different from a high resolution file?

A:  A social media file is sized, sharpened and optimized for viewing on screens and therefore too low in resolution for printing.  Since the point of social media is sharing, the image also has our logo watermarked at the bottom.  A high resolution file is too large to put online, but optimized for printing at sizes up to 11x16. 

Q:  What happens to images not ordered as prints?

A:  After 90 days, any images that have not been made into prints or included in books or image boxes are deleted.
