There are a few exciting new things happening around here at Emily McCall Photography. First, you may notice a few improvements to the blog! The biggest cosmetic change is the giant new flash header, and the most obvious functional improvements are the built-in twitter feed and easy “subscribe by email” button. Also be sure to check out the cool new “my philosophy” and “email me” features!
Second, I have revamped my portrait photography business model, which means that new pricing will be going into effect on March 5. Any session booked on or after March 5 will be subject to the new rates.
But finally, the most exciting news — and the reason for the new pricing — is that I am now providing my portrait clients with digital negatives! I have developed five portrait collections for my clients to choose from, and each one includes the fully retouched digital negatives for every image in your gallery. That means that after your session, you’ll receive a disc of images from which you can print and enlarge the photos yourself. You’ll also be able to share the photos with friends and family digitally and keep an archive of your session forever.
I decided to take my business this direction for two reasons: first of all, I think it will make my life better. Instead of being in the business of selling loose prints, I can focus on the boutique products — like gallery-wrapped canvases and session albums — that my clients are not able to obtain on their own. But more importantly, I decided to start offering digital negatives because they add a lot of value for my clients. Digital files are very versatile and valuable things. Not only do they allow you to print an unlimited number of photos, but they can also be posted on Facebook, e-mailed to Grandma, utilized for digital scrapbooking . . . And most importantly of all, you’ll have a permanent digital back-up of your photos that hopefully your children can show their grandchildren someday.
I am really excited about this change. If you’re interested in booking a session or just want to learn more about the new digital collections, shoot me an e-mail!
And finally, because a post wouldn’t be a post without a photo, here are a couple gratuitous shots of my adorable nephew — enjoy!
