FAQ

 

These are some common questions we answer every day! (For questions regarding the actual session, please see the Tips for Your Session page.) And feel free to call us if you have additional questions or need more clarification!

 

WHY DON'T YOU SELL YOUR DIGITAL FILES?

This is the most common question I get. The answer to this is three-fold.

 

First, I am in the business of selling finished prints to my customers. In the past, I have released digital files and most people bring their images to cheap labs that destroy the integrity of the print. The color is off, the paper is cheap, and they are not going to look as good as they would if I printed them for you. We all want your photos looking as nice as possible, therefore, I prefer to be responsible for controlling the the quality of the final product.

 

Second, if I were to give up the files, there would be no need to sell prints and my business would surely suffer.

 

Third, many customers who in the past have purchased digital files have told me that the files are still sitting in the CD envelope waiting to be printed.

 

WHAT IF I WANT TO MAKE A HOLIDAY CARD?

That is not a problem because I sell holiday cards as well. You can see samples online on Holiday Cards page. Or ask to see some actual samples when you’re in the studio.

 

I JUST WANT A BUNCH OF PROOFS OF THE SESSION. WHAT CAN I ORDER?

If you refer to the Specialty Items page you will see I offer both a Proof Book and a Proof Box, which contain the only proofs.

 

I REALLY LIKE ONE OF YOUR IMAGES FROM THE PROOFING WEBSITE . CAN I USE IT ON FACEBOOK?

That is perfectly fine with me. Take a screen shot of the website. My transparent watermark is on the image so I get photo credit and your friends can still see the image

 

WHERE IS FAIRFAX?

Fairfax is about 40 minutes north/west of the Golden Gate Bridge. We have great trails, shops and restaurants. You will love it.
