Custom Photography FAQ’s | Atlanta Newborn Photographer | Smyrna Newborn Photographer

Why Does Custom Photography Cost More? The digital revolution has brought amazing flexibility and ability to control various factors during the image taking and making process. Photographers, the hobbyist, the professional, the amateur all benefit from this ability to manipulate pixels. However, with flexibility comes a price. Digital camera equipment is still considerably more expensive when you factor in its lifespan, the need for additional resources for processing those images, the time it takes to get a usable image and the effort that goes into creating a work of photographic art. We all know that you can go to the local Walgreens and pay $1.99 for a print – as a client you may wonder why you may pay upwards of $50, $70, $90 for a custom photography print. Photographers hear this statement every once in awhile: “How in the world can you charge $60 for an 8×10 if it costs me less than $2 to print at x store?” The truth of the matter is the answer to this question is multifaceted. Much of the cost of a photographic print produced by a professional photographer has a lot to do with the time, equipment costs, artistic vision and reputation of the photographer not to mention expertise and the usual costs of running a legitimate business.

Kendall | A Sneak Peek! | Woodstock Child Photographer

Meet Kendall.  No, really, meet Kendall.  She is one of those little gems that will become your new, instant best friend.  We had a super fun session shooting in Downtown Woodstock, Georgia. I always arrive to my sessions early to “scout” the locations and light, even if I have been there before.  Well, I am so so glad that I did, because Dog, The Bounty Hunter was making an appearance, or book signing, or something, right where I had originally intended to shoot most of our session.  It was super funny, because there were at least two HUNDRED people waiting for Dog’s arrival 2 hours later….. we definitely got a good chuckle out of that. Keeping up with Miss Kendall was most definitely a challenge, but so so fun, as she has the BEST expressions and mannerisms. Enjoy your sneak peek! xoxo...
