One reason that my clients love having the digital files from their sessions is that they can make all sorts of fun novelty photo gifts for their families, such as calendars, mugs, etc. BUT I also want to make sure that those who want quality art using their images are able to do so through me. The products that I offer such as albums, canvases, image boxes, and storyboards are professional level and not available to the general public. I think this is a very important difference; since I take care to create images that are above consumer-quality-snapshots, I want to make sure that the final display of them is at a level that these beautiful images deserve. My clients tend to use online photo sites such as Shutterfly to create fun little items for their kids or the grandparents, but also invest in the items that I offer at very reasonable prices given the superior quality. This will give you an idea of what everything looks like, and I will bring along samples to our session for you to see in person – the pictures just do not do them justice!
ALBUMS – heirloom quality
My most popular product (and my most favorite!) is the gorgeous album custom designed with your favorite images from the session, and it is included with the Special Moments Collection. It is truly a special keepsake because it is something that will never go out of style and you will never tire of looking at it. Often young families get so behind on making sure that their snapshots are printed and put in albums, and there is always the chance that they will get lost or damaged before that happens…this album ensures that you and your children will have an enduring, quality way of sharing your memories with future generations. And it is SO FAR ABOVE the consumer, homemade-looking books that you will always be glad that you have it. Your children deserve to see how much they were valued. This is also a perfect solution for those who don’t have the wall space to display all of their favorites. You may also choose a leather cover in several colors. Additional albums can be purchased for $550. You can see what the pages look like from a real album from a full session here: Madison’s Senior Album and a little iphone video of one in person here.
The set of three identical 3″x3″ Mini Accordion albums are created using your ten favorite images and with your choice of color for the leatherette cover. They make adorable gifts for the grandmas, as they slip into a purse nicely! $60
My Gallery Album includes (20) 5×7 prints slipped into creamy mats and personalized with silver foil text on the classic gray linen cover. It’s beautiful and timeless, and is perfect for those who prefer a smaller, more classic album. $200
IMAGE BOX – for keepsakes
The Image Box, along with all of the 5×7 reference prints from your session, is included with your purchase of the Shared Moments Collection. They are a vast improvement from the cardboard-like ones sold by the consumer labs. They have a scratch-resistant chromaluxe finish on the image surface, album-quality leather binding and lining, thick wooden sides, and magnetic closure. They can be used to store up to 125 5×7 prints, and are personalized with your favorite image from the session. Many of my clients have used them to hold precious baby keepsakes, like hospital bracelets and hats. Others have used them for their high school seniors, storing the graduation tassel and programs. Many have just stored all of their family snapshots from the year in there as well – all of them easily organized & in one place, without fussing with slip-in albums.
COLLAGES – all in one
The 11″x14″ Collage of images from your session is always very popular. It makes a great gift for family, ad it is perfect for Mom or Dad’s office. It is usually personalized with the child’s name and date, but we can do anything you like! It can be ordered a la carte as a print from any session for $99 BUT it is included as a digital file for you to print yourself with the purchase of the Sweet Moments Collection (using 20 images) or with the Shared and Special Moments Collections (using all of the images)…a great reason to upgrade!
STORYBOARDS – personalized art
Storyboards have long been a customer favorite, but now they are even better. They are mounted on a 3/4 inch substrate, and coated with a glossy chromaluxe finish that really makes the images pop! They come ready to hang with a keyhole slot on the back. They are designed with 3 or 4 images that flow together, and are personalized with a name and date, or perhaps a favorite quote. Perfect for a child’s room, or as part of a wall display. $150
Storyboard alternatively mounted on foam-core for those who prefer a more photographic matte finish…can be propped on a ledge or framed $119
CANVAS – custom art for your home
There is nothing quite like seeing your image on gallery wrapped canvas. It’s so upscale and beautiful, and it really is an heirloom piece that your family will cherish for years to come. It makes any professional image stand out as a custom piece of artwork, not just a photo on display. Since they don’t require a frame, they come ready to hang and blend with any style of decor. Consumer photo labs like Costco now offer canvases, but they are not very good at controlling the color – I can tell right away – and that’s why I offer them to you through my pro labs. All canvases include a Certificate of Authenticity, detailing the date of the image, who it was commissioned by, and my signature as the artist as well as room for your handwritten story about the image – so that future generations will know exactly how this heirloom fits into your history!
