My favorite thing after photographing my clients are seeing their beautiful photographs printed. Proofs, large prints, luxury hand-made books; you name it, I get all heart-eyed over printed heirlooms. Most of my clients order several options with me after their portraits are delivered, which completely makes me heart so full. But here's the thing, most of my clients choose to also have printing rights included in their collection, which means that at some point they'll be printing on their own. I inevitably get an email asking "Where can I print? How large can I print? What images should I print?" and it's understandable, because there are soo many options out there; this is my best advice:
Many photographers are more than happy to do an ordering consultation with you and help guide you through the ordering process. I highly suggest taking them on it and having them help you with ordering those special heirlooms.
