The Proofing Process...


Once your proofs are available, Erica will release a link to you for you to view and select your favorites.

Here is the best steps in walking through the proofing process:

1. Once you have been given the link, just click it to view your proofs. It is best to view your images on an actual computer and not a cell phone or app version so you get all options. This link is good for 30 days only! Please make sure to select your images before 30 days expires. 
2. Before you get excited to view all of them, first register on my site. This will allow you to create and save a Lightbox.
* A Lightbox will help you narrow down your selections and make the best choice for you and your family. 
3. Once your Lightbox is complete with your favorite options, please let Erica know so she can start the finishing process. All glamour/pin-up/headshots/model/graduation images will be finished to perfection by our Portrait Perfection Software. If you are interested in Body Perfection Touchups or Landscape Touchups, please let Erica know. Not all images qualify. Body Perfection Touch Up and Landscape Touch Up are an additional cost of $35 per image.

All participants will be sent a link download the photographers top 3 images with an option to purchase additional. Free download link will be given after the images have been posted live during the campaign and not beforehand. Proofs will be given within 48 hours of shoot. Remember that all proofs are unfinished images and once you purchase the image, we will finish the image including facial touch-ups and editing floors, ceilings and cropping to perfection. 

Now I have selected my images, what is next? 
1. If you have selected more than what your package included, you will be emailed an invoice for the extra images. 
2. You will find we are lightening fast at finishing images, once balance is paid our team will finish your images to perfection. Standard finishing process includes lighting adjustments, coloring image and facial touch ups including whitening teeth, brightening eyes and smoothing skin when needed. 
3. Once your images are complete, you will be given a link to download your images. Your link is good for 30 days only!!! Please download before they are erased off the server.

Most important!!! When downloading to save your images to be kept for a lifetime, save directly to an external hard drive or internal hard drive of a computer and not a cell phone. Cell phones reduce image size and can also distort images. 

Can I alter my images?
Your photo release gives you permission to print high resolution for any personal use as well as upload to your favorite sites. We do however ask you not to alter the images in anyway by using filters, coloring or even turning them into black & white without permission directly from the photographer. We spend thousands on software to finish your images to perfection so that you leave happy.
