What My Clients are Saying:
“[Our daughter’s] picture is such a joy to us. She will show visitors her baby picture with such pride. Thanks for taking those pictures and encouraging us to print.”
Proud to Be A Printmaker
My philosophy as a photographer is that my job is not complete until your photos have been delivered to you in a beautiful, tangible form of the highest quality.
That’s because in order for you to truly enjoy and get the most out of them, they need to be in a form that encourages you to interact with them often, in meaningful ways, and that are able to withstand the test of time. My Printmaker Promise to you is to work with you to find the right print solutions for your cherished photos so you can do just that.
Whether it’s an heirloom album you can hold in your hands, a single canvas or framed print hanging above the mantle, or a full wall art gallery in one ore more rooms in your home, my goal is to get your photos off your screen and into your life where they belong.
Below are a few timeless options for you to consider when printing your photos. Each have been selected for their superior quality and include a lifetime guarantee to ensure you will be able to pass them down for generations. The best way to experience them is in person, where you can see and feel the quality for yourself first-hand (so I’ll be sure to have a few samples handy when we meet), but until then, here is an overview of what you can expect.
Heirloom Archival Albums
It’s no secret that I love albums. Of all the products I offer, albums will always be my favorite. Perhaps it is because I am a book-lover, and enjoy the feeling of holding an album in my lap, turning the pages, and seeing how the full story comes together. (Or perhaps it’s because I often can’t decide which photo I like the best and really just want to include them all!) Whatever the case, I know you will fall in love with my albums too once you see them up close.
My albums are handcrafted with great attention to detail and produced in the lay-flat (aka flushmount) style with no gutter in the center. This means they will stay open if you set them on a table or rest them in your lap without you having to hold the pages in place. This results in a more relaxed viewing experience (no worries about losing your place as you’re flipping through it) and great deal of versatility in what layouts can be included in your album design. The photos are printed on archival photo paper, mounted to thick, durable pages, and the workmanship is guaranteed for life.
Albums are available with either a premium leather or fine linen cover, with many elegant colors to choose from. Each album is debossed (imprinted) with the description of your choice on the front cover (typically your name(s) along with the date and/or occasion). Even the font is customizable based on your aesthetic.
Albums are available in a variety of sizes and are custom-designed to fit your occasion. Whether you’re planning a wedding, engagement, traditional family session, or other special event like a baptism or milestone anniversary celebration, you can’t go wrong investing in an album! Albums begin at $1000.
Or, if leather’s not your thing, consider my selection of fine linen albums, for a modern, sophisticated look.
Looking to transform your living space into a warm and inviting place that celebrates your loved ones everyday? Wall art is a wonderful way to do that! And contrary to what you might think, this is something you can do no matter the size of your home, with the help of my super savvy software that helps you visualize exactly what pieces will look like in various sizes and configurations in the context of your ACTUAL rooms and existing decor before you buy. No need to guess or be disappointed if something doesn’t fit in your space, we’ll get it right from the start! (And guess what, there is no additional fee for this service, it is included with every session!)
In terms of my product selections, all of my canvas and framed prints are produced using archival materials and processes to ensure your art work will last for generations and include a lifetime guarantee against yellowing or fading. Every wall art purchase also comes with FREE INSTALLATION, so you never have to worry about photos sitting on the floor for months or years waiting to be hung ever again. (Let’s be honest, that is half the battle. Yes, I’ve been guilty of that, too!)
Individual canvas prints start at $250 and framed prints start at $500. Multi-image wall art collections are custom-designed and vary in price based on the size, style, and quantity of included prints, however, clients can expect to spend an average of $1500 and up.
Archival Canvas Prints
Canvas prints are a flexible, modern choice that look great in a variety of rooms, with a wide range of sizes available.
My canvas prints are made from 100% natural cotton Hahnemühle canvas material. They contain no optical brighteners (which can degrade photo quality over time) and feature a finely woven, elegant surface structure. Each canvas is coated with Hahnemühle Matte Varnish, resulting in a non-glare surface that retains a wide range of colors well. Canvases are archival and acid-free so you can pass them down to your grandchildren.
Every canvas is hand-stretched on 1.5" deep wood stretcher bars and each corner is custom cut to reduce bulk. The back of each canvas is finished with an archival backing material that is acid-free, moisture, and puncture resistant.
Canvases are available with a traditional gallery wrap or with a solid white or black border to preserve the original image dimensions so that no part of your photo is lost when wrapped.
Archival Framed Prints
Framed prints are an elegant and timeless choice for any occasion. They are a more formal choice than canvases but still look great in a variety of spaces.
All of my frames are sourced from responsibly harvested solid wood frames that are assembled by hand in the United States. This means no veneers or cheap wood. Frame choices include Satin Black Maple, White Maple, or Black Cherry. They are available in 3/4" or 1.5" wide profiles with either a 2” or 4” mat.
Mats used in framed prints are custom cut, acid free, lignin free, 4-ply with a bevel edge. The mat boards are made from salvaged cotton linters from the textile industry and exceed the standards established by the Library of Congress, Library Service Institutions, and The Fine Art Trade Guild.
Framed prints are protected with an abrasion-resistant and 99% UV blocking acrylic and ArtCare Archival Foam Board which absorbs and neutralizes harmful gases. Each frame is carefully finished with an acid free and puncture resistant dust cover.
My framed prints are built starting with your photo, printed on your choice of 3 archival papers, then going outward to the mat, and then with your custom frame.
This means that you do not lose any of the image due to matting or frame dimensions, as is the case with many other framed prints which start with the frame dimension and go inward. In other words, when you order a 12” x 12” print with a 2” mat from me, it is actually a 12” x 12” print placed in a 16'“ x 16” frame (see examples below).
