Great question! In the past, Photographers would give people that shot with them a CD of images after their shoot. This was time consuming, costly and the images generally were not touched up.
We have joined the 21st century and made this whole process easier. I think the real question is, "Do I get digital images that I can use for email, facebook, etc." The answer to this question is YES.
We have created a very consumer friendly approach to digital images. You will be given full instructions (written handout) at your session. We will have two separate websites were you can find your digital images posted. One is what we call our "Pass" website. You will have your own folder and have the ability to share this link with friends and family. On this website, you can see a full slideshow of all of the images taken during your session. You can "Share" any of the images to your facebook page and it creates a copy of the image on facebook with the ability to do the slideshow right on your facebook page. Friends and families love this option. From the Pass site, you can also choose your Favorite images. We ask that you pick your 4 favorite images and "Star" them within a couple of days of your shoot. We then will use "Touch up" these four images for you to order your print package, books, mugs, additional prints or anything else.
The second website your pictures will be listed on is our Proofs site. Your pictures will appear under your own personal link, and this link can also be shared with friends and family (their is an option to share the pictures here to facebook, twitter or email, but you lose the slideshow option from the Pass site). At this site, you can purchase additional prints and products. We will have the four images you chose in a special section and you can download the images straight to your computer (no need for the hassle of a CD). You can get additional images for download and retouched. The price for retouching additional images is only $10 each and you will receive these as a Low Resolution Digital Download. If you purchase $25 or more on any other image in prints and products, we will throw the retouching in for free.
