"There's something about seeing a print that slows down your life for just a moment, and it makes you appreciate it in a way that pixels on a screen could never possibly do." ~ Pye Jirsa
Portraits as art
My intention when I am photographing you and your family is for the images to be turned into beautiful pieces of art that you are proud to display in your home and that your children will treasure once they are grown and have children of their own. It's for this reason that each photograph I take is designed to be a stand-alone beautiful image in itself. I work hard for my clients to create timeless, meaningful portraits and I want them to look PERFECT when they are printed; this is why I use the very best of the best professional printers.
Folio fine art prints
I have partnered with Folio Albums for my prints, a boutique professional printing company based in the UK (and the world leader in fine art wedding albums). They specialise in producing luxury prints on museum quality fine-art papers which are chosen to last a lifetime and have an impeccable, sustainable provenance. They are of simply stunning quality and totally unrivalled by any high street printing lab in every way.
Exquisite finish and long-lasting
The prints look absolutely stunning with a soft matte eggshell finish on luxuriously heavy 310gsm cotton rag fine-art paper, but more importantly the inks, paper and printing technique Folio use are fully archival (meaning the prints will not fade or change colour and will last over 100 years). The prints will also be identical in tone, contrast and colour to the original file. I have had my own experience with consumer-level labs where my prints come back too dark, or with a strange tint, and I am passionate about my clients being thrilled with their prints!
It's wonderful to have digital images to share with friends and family, but I really believe that holding a beautiful print in your hands and displaying it somewhere you can see it everyday means so much more than having digital files sitting somewhere on a laptop.
My luxury print prices start at £45 and I currently offer mounted prints up to size 20"x20". I am happy to help you design wall collages using your images and suggest different sizing and display options. My most popular fine-art print is a custom-designed 20"x20" collage (24"x24" including the white mount) including your 8 favourite images from your session, the cost of which is £295.
