On-line Image Gallery
After your session, we will select a set of the best shots and make them available to you in an online image gallery, typically within a couple weeks of your shoot. This will give you the opportunity to mark your favorites and share the gallery with family and friends to help you decide what you'd like to order.
In-Studio Ordering Session
When you schedule your shoot, you will also need to schedule a separate ordering session. These sessions are available Monday through Friday from 10:00am-4:00pm in our Glenview studio and are typically scheduled for forty-five minutes. If you need a weekend ordering session, please notify us when you book your session as these times are limited and typically book up very quickly. If you think you may need to schedule additional time, please let us know when scheduling your ordering session. Remember to schedule your ordering session for a time that is appropriate for everyone in your decision-making party.
We ask that all orders be placed during the ordering session.
We will assist you in making your final decisions but prior to the ordering session we ask that you review the images in your online gallery. You'll have time to view the gallery and forward it to family and friends. Please make a written list of your favorite images and use the shopping cart feature to create a "favorites" page. The favorites page gives us a chance to prepare for your ordering session, ensuring an efficient use of time in your ordering session.
There are a variety of ways to display your images at home and we will go over some of these options together during your ordering session. We have a large selection of framing options with which we can design an entire wall or a single piece. Our gallery wrap canvases make wonderful art-pieces for your home and have a genuinely classic feel. We also offer various albums— a great option for those who do not have a lot of available wall space for framed pieces or for when there are many "yes" images and you would like to display them all.
If you're thinking of ordering framed pieces or canvas wraps, please measure the areas in your home where you would like to display them as rough estimates can be deceiving. It is a great idea to take a digital photo of each of the spaces where you would like to display a piece. By emailing us your images or bringing your camera into the studio, you will give us a better idea as to where and how you would like your pieces to be displayed. We can also get a feel for the color, scale and design of your space. If the shoot location is at your home, feel free to point out to Nicole the various spaces you have in mind at the time of the shoot.
Note: For birth announcements and holiday cards, please know the quantity of cards that you will need in intervals of 25.
