What size digital files do I need?

This depends on what you intend to do with the photos.

1/3-megapixel web-size
These are small digital files, they do not take up very much disk space on your computer or device. They are perfect for storing on your mobile phones, tablets, and computers, or sharing online. They are not suitable for printing.

4-megapixel high-resolution
These are larger files with sufficient resolution to make photo prints up to approx 11″ x 14″.

These are maximum-size digital files, up to 22 megapixels. They have sufficient resolution to make large wall-size prints and canvases.

How long does it take to see my photos?

In most cases, photos are ready to view in 3-5 business days. Special circumstances may yield longer turnaround times.

Do you photoshop or edit the photos?

All finished portraits go through intensive production work before you see them. This produces portraits with proper exposure, density and color fidelty. Further adjustments are applied as neccesary.

For a limited time, we are offering free portrait design consultations!

How does it work?
Portrait design consultations will involve an in-person or phone meeting to discuss clothing selections, color palettes, poses, background, creative ideas and more. We will establish key shots for specific needs such as a big portrait above the fireplace, or perhaps a keepsake photo album for grandma.

Giclée canvas wraps

The Giclée process enables us to print directly onto museum-quality canvas material, so prints will not separate over time. Protective spray coating is applied to the surface of each print to help prevent scratches and other damage. Canvas Wrap prints are a stylish, low-cost alternative to traditional framing. The print is wrapped around a stretcher frame so that 1 1/2″ of the photo’s edges are visible on the sides of the frame. They’re delivered display-ready with hanging hardware attached.

Metal prints.

To create Metal prints we infuse dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets, creating truly archival works of art. These Metal prints showcase a revolutionary new medium that is highly durable, waterproof, weatherproof, and ultra scratch-resistant. The unique printing method gives your photos a vibrant luminescence with incredible detail and resolution. Each print has rounded corners for your safety and the surface can be easily cleaned with any commercial glass cleaner. Metal prints come ready-to-hang with two 3/4″ thick lightweight foam blocks and aluminum plate with pre-drilled holes. When hung, these stunning prints will float off the wall.
