I get asked about digital files all the time. In fact most often it’s the first question I get asked… I understand the need to move to digital but feel strongly that images are not being saved to pass down to our next generations.
I have resisted selling them to keep control on how my images are printed to protect the quality of my work and reputation. The addition of filters, photo editing that was not meant to be and low grade of printing; not all paper, ink or printer is equal or the same… there has been no good way for me to protect/control what gets shown as photography by “Susan B. Photography”.
I believe that the time you spent with me for your portrait session and the time I spend editing them should be on display, be it in wall art such as print, canvas or metal, or displayed products such as albums in a variety of sizes and other products that I offer. Having a digital image to share on your social media or print for your own use is fine, but more often in my early days as a business the common response I heard from selling a ‘cd of images’ was they were lost in a draw, never printed. My goal as your photographer is to provide you images you want to look at over and over again displayed in your home.
I offer digital images with the purchase of a full print. I have spent time working and editing the images and believe that you will be happy with the printed version along with a digital archive for your record keeping purposes.
I do not offer a full set of images for $100. I put a lot of time into learning my craft and creating images for you. The money spent on paper is inexpensive, but what goes into creating the image is invaluable! When booking your session I will provide options on digital image purchases.
With Digital Prints I provide not only the ease and use of the digital era but provide an 8×10 of the image(s) purchased for archival purposes.
The Digital Print is available in 8×10 (Seniors / Families) or 8×7 (Glamour). Includes the digital rights to the photo that allows you to print extras at the lab of your choosing and share it on social media (with no logo watermark attached). For those who want to scrap book, send extra copies to families and friends and still keep the print version for yourself, this is it.
