Please note: Galleries from 2016 and forward are not fully edited. They have not yet been completely color corrected, straightened, or even cropped, and these images can be cropped significantly.
If you see an unedited photo and want to be sure it will work for your purposes, just email the photo number and gallery to email@example.com and I can fully edit the photo to your specifications before you purchase.
All indoor images are shot without flash -- as a result, your images may have more noise/grain than an outside image, this is unavoidable although we are able to do some smoothing. Also because of the low light conditions, we cannot achieve a super fast shutter speed, which means your images may not be as sharp as an outdoor image -- if the picture is not sharp on your monitor, it will not be sharp in print. We recommend all images be viewed on a monitor rather than a mobile device for selection.
How do I buy photos on Zenfolio?
Go to the photo and click "Buy" This will open a shopping cart and will lead you through the process of order and payment.
There are three types of images, each having a somewhat different function, so please read to make sure that you get the right one for your purpose:
We also have many specialty products available with photos on them: mugs, shirts, etc. as well as frames in many styles.
Please be sure to give photo credit in all advertising and please send me an electronic copy (jpg preferred) so I can feature on my Facebook page. Within hours, hundreds of fanciers will see your ad.
You will notice that there is an empty frame in the photo if you have taken a win photo. This will be replaced with the appropriate award after the photo has been selected and purchased. It is a time consuming process via PhotoShop which is why it is not done to all photos. You can see a sample replacement award sign at http://lyndabeam.zenfolio.com/p988781500/h4780c1bc#h4780c1bc. We can adjust lettering to suit your needs/desires and color coordinate with the ribbon. Just let us know what you would like!
Because of the time involved in creating win photos, they are not included in multiple photo packages.
Ask, and I will load a preview for you. If you like it, buy it. If not, and there's something else to be done, let me know!
Send me an email and I will contact you for your order.
Contact me to get the correct total and you may send a check. Once it has cleared, I will approve the order and it will be sent to you.
Let me know and I will do my utmost to make you happy. Sometimes that involves returning product to the lab for reprint, sometimes it involves a refund or replacement of images.
Yes ... it's easy as that
Yes ... just tell me what photos you want and I can give you a quote.
Standardly, we can do the following packages (these are for candids only, not win photos), just email me your list of photos and I will invoice you via Paypal:
Unfortunately we cannot offer these prices in connection with promotions, percentage discounts, etc. They can be used with gift certificates.
Can you do modifications to the photos (i.e., blur backgrounds, cut-outs, etc.)?
No, but my husband has PhotoShop and can use it; there is an extra fee. If I see a stray hair or a bug flying in front of the dog I can usually do that at no charge.
Click on "Blog" and look at the sidebar, I will generally have a list of shows I'm attending there once I've decided to go. Or ask!
Yes, I do take requests. Contact me privately if you are in need of a particular type of photo or a private shoot. Otherwise I tend to pick a ring that is advantageous for taking candids and "park" there until groups! Also happy to set up private shoots local to Grayslake, IL or surrounding communities.
Sure, but please keep in mind that I have a day job as well, and I may not be able to access your photo until I return home in the afternoon.
Yes, additional fees apply.
It doesn't happen very often, but occasionally it does! Just email me with a link to the photo and I will get it down as quickly as humanly possible. It would be helpful to know why you dislike a photo so I am sure not to post one again with the same "fault."
