Prints vs. Digital Images

For family portraits at Tara Flannery Photography, you have an option of selecting printed products or digital images.  There are a few key reasons to select printed final products through your photographer.

  1. Print Quality and Longevity: I use only the highest quality products that will last.  The lab backs the prints with 3mm styrene for durability, meaning that your prints won’t bend or tear.  This also makes the prints easy to pop into a frame or simply sit on a shelf.
  2. True Color and Consistency: my monitor is color-calibrated with the print lab to ensure that skin tones and other colors are true.  There are no red/green/blue casts to the images.  You might get these casts when printing at a consumer lab, depending on who is running the printer.
  3. Size: when planning your session, I can provide recommendations for sizing your family portraits.  I use special software that allows me to show you the new family portraits on your own walls.  That software is also calibrated so that we can determine the exact size that will be perfect for the space (not too small and not too large).
  4. Cropping: the image coming out of the camera has a size ratio.  When printing, sometimes that image needs to be adjusted to fit the print ratio if it’s different from the native image ratio.  This is especially needed when printing canvas gallery wraps which might need extra space on the sides for wrapping.

Next time you have family portraits made, consider printing through your photographer.  You won’t regret the gorgeous prints that will last a lifetime!

Family Portrait Sessions

We created some fantastic images for the Hayes and Sharp families!  We planned the session together and discussed wardrobe, location, and end goals for the family portraits.  Then we rocked the session and had lots of fun.  Finally, we selected favorite images together and placed each family’s order.  I’m so honored to have captured memories for these families at this very moment in time.  We can’t ever go back but with the family portraits, they can always see the love and family ties that hold them together!

Senior Sessions

When celebrating your high school senior, it’s also a great idea to print those portraits!  The immediate self-confidence and joy that come from seeing printed portraits is immeasurable.  Many of my senior clients like to have an album with their favorite images.  Make sure your senior has a place on the wall or in a beautiful custom album!
