I know that when it comes to getting the images from your photography session almost everyone wants to purchase digitals over prints. I know a lot of times and I can say from personal experience that digitals tend to just sit on the USB or wherever you put them when you purchased digitals. They are doing absolutely no good there either. If you paid for a session and then paid for your images you should want to show them off! In my opinion it’s also more fun to look through an album of pictures. There are SO many options in creating an album to make it 100% personal and unique. Yes, albums can be costly but it’s not everyday that you get either family pictures or senior pictures. It definitely is not everyday that you get wedding pictures and get to create your own album. I understand that when you see the prices of the box stores photo lab or an online company, you think you are getting a great deal. But that is not always the case.
When you purchase the digitals and then go and print them at Wal-Mart, CVS, Walgreens, an online printing company, etc. it is hard telling what your picture is going to turn out looking like. I have search the internet for examples of comparisons of images printed at different stores. I will elaborate a bit on some of the comparisons.
There is a brown tint to the image. The colors look muted. There is quite a bit of loss of detail.
The colors are dull and dark. There is a major loss of detail.
Again, the colors are dull and dark. There is also a brown tint. There is some loss of detail.
Some of these you may not see much of a difference. But there are some that you can NOT miss the difference. Just be sure to do your research before printing your images just anywhere, or better yet, purchase them from your photographer because you know what you are getting from them.

The Barnwood Frames are available in 2 styles, 4 sizes and arrive ready to hang. These frames are built with real barnwood donated from old Minnesota barns. Once the barns are taken apart, the barnwood gets kiln treated to remove any lead paint or anything living from the wood. With these frames being made from genuine barnwood, no two frames are alike. Shading variation of the wood, knots, or nail holes are part of their reclaimed appearance. The unique imperfections add great depth and character to any piece.
The Float Wraps are built to grab attention. We take your photographic or canvas print and wrap it around padded masonite, then coat it with a protective laminate for a sleek, elegant look. It’s black paper backing and thick gatorboard block with holes allows the image to hang extended from the wall, giving the appearance that your image is floating.
