When I was younger, I would sit for hours and sift through the box of older prints, scans, and photo albums. It was and still is one of my favorite things to do. I would often ask my parents who were those people with the funny hairstyles or funky clothes. I believe photos should live beyond an online gallery or the tiny squares in our phones. Technology is ever-changing, forever keeping us on our toes with how to make sure our photos never get lost. Printed albums are tangible heirlooms that allow your children, and great-grandchildren to hold a piece of the story as if they were there in the moment all along.
After reviewing this guide, fill out the order form at the bottom of the albums webpage. This lets me know your album preferences for cover, font options, sizes, etc. Once I receive your order form, I will send a digital invoice over to you to get the design process rolling!
Once the invoice is complete, I will go through your online gallery and design an initial rough draft using a professional album design software. From there, you will have up to three revisions to make any changes that you would like!
After any additional changes are complete, you’ll go through it and hit “approve” to start the printing process! Approving the spreads means that no further changes are needed and you will see these spreads printed as they look on your computer screen.
I will send the final designs to the printer, and within a few weeks, you will be holding your new album! Once
your album arrives, we will coordinate a time when I can either drop it off, meet up to give it to you, or mail it to you. Please note, during the Holiday season, printing may take up 2-3 weeks so make sure you order well in advance.
A: Yes! One way I have found to save an entire round of revision ($50 value!) is to use images in our first draft that you already love! Once we are officially underway, I ask my clients to select their favorites using the "heart" feature in their online gallery. Once all favorites have been selected, we start the first draft. If this is overwhelming to you, we can also start the first draft using my personal favorites from your gallery, and change images throughout the revisions. This sometimes helps give a starting point- but I like to give both options!

A: This varies from album to album and all depends on how prompt you are giving feedback on the design revisions. During each round of revision, you are able to leave comments on the spreads for any changes you would like made. Prompt responses, and using all 3 revisions usually result in 2 weeks of designing, and then it is sent to the printer, and mailed out. Please note, during the Holidays shipping times vary.
A: 3 rounds of revision are included, with additional rounds available for $50/ round.
I’m so glad you are considering an album! I cannot wait to start designing what will soon be a family heirloom.
