The Proofing Process, what you need to know...
Once your proofs are available, Erica will release a link to you for you to view and select your favorite images and also your editing options. See options below...
Here is the best steps in walking through the Proofing Process:
Step 1 Proofing Process... 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 available options. This link is good for 30 days only! Please make sure to select your images before 30 days expires. Please do not post the proof album link online in anyway, we do not allow unfinished images to be shared outside of the proofing process. We want your images to be perfect before sharing with the world!
Step 2Proofing Process... Before you get excited to view them all, please register on my site. This will allow you to not only create a Lightbox but to edit and save your Lightbox. If you forget this step, let Erica know and she can send your Lightbox to you.
* A Lightbox will help you narrow down your selections and make the best choice for you and your family.
Step 3. Once your Lightbox is complete with your favorite selections, please let Erica know that you are complete and which finishing options you would like: Basic Finishing Option (included with the exception of group images unless requested), Landscape Finishing Option and Body Finishing Option (details below of each option)
Now I have selected my images, what is next?
1. If your session included the rights to digital images and you have selected more finished images than what your package included, you will be emailed an invoice for the extra images. Most sessions do not include digital images. Digital images are $25 each.
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. You also have the option to add Landscape Touchups for outdoor images and Body Software to your image for an additional $25 per image per option.
3. Once your images have been finished to perfection and 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 image. We spend 3 times longer finishing your images than taking them so please do not ever alter them in anyway.
Want to post your finished images to social media? We love that! Please "tag" us with some love! However, we ask that you never alter our images in any way including filters. We work hard to make them perfect but here if you have any special requests or needs.
Finished images include Portrait Software
Group images with multiple people of 3 or more typically don't go through this software due to the distance of the subject from the camera and to keep images natural in appearance.
Option #2 "Landscape Finishing Option"
Additional $25 per image for qualifying images
We can't control natures glory, sometimes we need a little help to turn that awesome picture into a perfect one! This software allows us to change the sky and add depth to the shot when nature isn't in our favor.
Sample images had the grass color changed, the sky changed and the subjects pulled away from the back of the image creating depth and allowing them to jump off the screen.
Option #3 "Body Touch Ups"
Additional $25 per person in image for qualifying images
Hate your arms or wish that waste was a little smaller? Body Touchup software allows you to look your best and can reduce or expand those little imperfections we dislike!
This software can alter all aspects of the body. Sample image is a drastic altering for an example only and not typical of what we suggest.
