Can I just buy a CD?

AT YMP, WE BELIEVE THAT PRINTS ARE THE CAKE AND DIGITALS ARE JUST THE ICING.

At the end of every portrait session, our goal is to provide you with beautiful family heirlooms that can be passed down from generation to generation and a USB thumb drive or CD is not our idea of an heirloom.

Speaking of CD’s, let’s be honest…how many CDs do you have laying around with images that have never been printed? What happens when that CD gets scratched or you no longer have a CD reader? (think back to 8-tracks and floppy disks!)

YOU CAN ALWAYS CREATE A DIGITAL FILE FROM A PRINT, BUT YOU CAN NEVER PRINT FROM A CORRUPT DIGITAL FILE!

Your 5×7 gallery prints in each Collection are come with an archival storage box to protect your art.

FULL-SIZE DIGITAL NEGATIVES AND A PRINT RELEASE  ARE COMPLIMENTARY WITH EVERY IMAGE PURCHASED!

When should I schedule a Maternity Session?

As soon as possible to insure we are available when it’s convenient for your schedule! Maternity sessions should be held at 32-36 weeks gestation and more information can be found about them by clicking HERE.

When should I schedule a Newborn Session?

There’s a lot of preparation that goes in to a successful newborn session for you and for me! Newborn sessions are booked using your due date as I can only accommodate up to 4 newborn sessions per week. Once your little bundle arrives, we schedule the actual date and time for your session. More details about newborn sessions can be found by clicking HERE.

Don't you only book sessions for babies?

Not anymore! I’ve hired a FANTASTICALLY talented photographer who has a LOT more experience then I do and he books portrait sessions for just about any occasion. Read more about Luke by clicking HERE.
