Hey, guys!

I have been getting so many questions regarding products in my shop. I am so thrilled that you guys (my clients and supporters) feel comfortable enough to ask me the important differences between purchasing high quality products from my company v.s. purchasing products from an out-source that my be a lower quality and inexpensive. 

I love seeing my work on walls for the world to see. It brings so much joy to my heart. More than that, I love seeing my work on great quality products. Look at it this way: When you purchase a photo session for a pretty significant amount of money, you are purchasing it for that price because the work is quality work.

The same goes for purchasing products to put your images on. 

  1. Putting quality work on cheaper products dramatically decreases the quality of the work that you just purchased. Once again, you purchased the work because it’s so good. What sense does it make to place that on something that doesn’t enhance and showcase the impeccable quality of that image?  
    1. Because of this, the true beauty behind the artwork isn’t portrayed the way it is intended to be. Photographers and more specifically newborn photographers, spend a tremendous amount of time to make sure your images are exquisite and perfect from every angle and size. We do this so if you decide to get a large canvas or poster made, it’s flawless, sharp and clear. You can wave good-bye to sharp and clear if you aren’t purchasing quality products because the materials that make up your product are not made for this. Which brings me to my next point. 
  2. The materials used to make your quality products are incredibly durable and are essentially made to last a life-time when handled with care. There is no sun damage. They aren’t fuzzy close up. There is none of that. The material makes a huge difference. It’s almost a matter of real v.s. fake.

What if you can’t afford quality prints and products?

I’m going to be real with you for a moment. 

I am a firm believer in putting your images on the wall for the world to see. I also am a mother of two and I run a photogrpahy business. I’ve been there, I know how it is. However, my suggestion to you is to wait until you can do it because it’s so worth it in the end. 

It’s almost like spending $700 on the latest iPhone. Why spend $700 on an iPhone? Because is a great phone and has incredible features that you admire…

And then you need a case. So you spend $5 on a case that won’t even protect it.

My point being, go the extra mile.
