the dawson family


It’s a wrap – except for a way to remember it! I’ll pass along a few items so they’re convenient: our pricing guide, a thumbnail preview of all your images and an order form (to jot down thoughts prior to our ordering appt)…if we don’t already have an ordering appt time set-up, let’s connect via skype/facetime soon! Thank you for pausing to create a document of life and what it looks like right now!

    how long do prints take to receive back?

    Images needed by christmas delivery should be ordered no later than Oct 8th but otherwise, 6 weeks. Books take dramatically longer which is why we like to start the process as early as possible.

  • 02
    How long will the gallery be up?

    Great question – 90 days. We find that’s the perfect amount of time to make thoughtful selections, share with friends/guests before too many other distractions from life set in. We’d love if you’d make the bulk of your selections during that time to keep our workflow even but down the road (up until 2 years from your session date), if you’d like to order a print, that’s absolutely okay.

    A few reminders about your proofs:
    • Proofs may appear slightly lighter or darker than the final prints will be.
    • Proofs are not cropped and will be when prints are ordered.
    • You may order color images in b&w if you’d prefer – b&w images cannot be ordered in color, however.
    • Final prints take about 6 weeks (and portraits needed by Christmas should always be ordered no later than October 10th) and approximately 8 weeks for books/canvases.
    • If there’s a little something that you’re curious about changing in a photo, don’t hesitate to ask…it may be very easy to retouch.  minimal retouching is included in prints and extensive retouching is available at $25 per quarter hour.
    • Ordered images are archived for a year, un-ordered images are kept on file for 14 days.
    • We ask that you try to make your order within 7-9 days to keep our workflow even.
