I hope everyone had a good time during the portrait sessions the other night. You can look at the proofs and claim your free 5x7 (or price equivalent) with the discount code “TDSS-COMP-21”. You are, of course, welcome to purchase additional photos.
Discount code will be valid through May 2, 2021, so order soon.
A few of things to note especially if this is your first time with us:
1. All purchased photos will be polished, including optimizing the cropping, color, and exposure. Temporary skin blemishes (scratches, zits, bruises) will also be removed when they can be clearly seen. Don’t worry about edges of the floor or the background. That will be fixed.
2. There are three main item categories available for purchase: prints, books, and digital files:
A. Prints: you’ll have the option to have the print mounted to a sturdier matte backing board. I recommend this for print sizes 11x14 and bigger, and it’s nice to have for 8x10s. Low resolution digital images for social media use are included with each purchased print.
B. Books: we would normally be showing you your proofs immediately after the session, but while we’re still dealing with COVID, sales are online, and that means that books are a bit of a pain. Books must contain 20 images (18 inside, 1 for the back, 1 for the cover), and each image starts at $15 (for the 7x7 book), so the smallest book starts at $300. You should select the front and back cover options for the photos you want. So to order a book, you have to individually order each photo you want included as a book page. That can be a bit cumbersome, so you could mark your 20 favorites (with the little heart icon next to each photo), and then send me a text when you’re done so we can take care of the details that way. Low resolution digital images for social media use are included with each photo in the book.
C. Digital Files: you would select this if you want to order as many of your own prints as you’d like from a third party vendor (I recommend MPix.com), or just like to have these things for posterity, using the polished high resolution JPEG file. If you only want digital files for posting on FB or IG, be aware that lower resolution social media files with my logo in the bottom right corner are included with whatever item you purchase. The more digital files you purchase, the less expensive they become. They start at $60 each, and go down to $50 at 5, $40 at 10, and $30 at 20. Example: 4 digital files would cost $240, 5 digital files would cost $250. Note that if you choose 8 images, you might as well choose 10 since the pricing would be the same. These discounts are shown at the subtotal area of your shopping cart.
3. Don’t forget to apply your Discount Code (TDSS-COMP-21) near the very end of the checkout process. This will deduct the price of a 5x7 and provide free shipping for your entire order. NOTE: If you want your print larger than a 5x7, you may do so, and the price of a 5x7 will be deducted. Choose a payment method, even if your order comes to $0 (this will avoid a bug that would give you a nasty looking error).
