Why should you choose Hope and Memory Photography?
Each family’s experience is as unique as they are. With Hope and Memory Photography, you aren’t just getting a photo session, you are getting an experience. For an hour or two, you get to set your worries aside and spend some quality time having fun with and loving on those that are the most important in your life. The bills, the job, the laundry, the dishes, and whatever else is plaguing you will be there later. Take the time to have a fun and memorable experience with your family and have stunning and unique art to show off your memories after it’s all said and done. A good photograph is not only beautiful, but it can take you right back to that moment and make you relive the sights, sounds, smells, and even tastes of that day. I can’t give you a time machine, but I want to give you the closest thing I can, and that is a set of outstanding photographs.
Impeccable Customer Service
Every client receives a pre-session consult where we chat about your session over a glass of wine, a cup of coffee, or a bowl of ice cream (your choice and my treat)! We’ll talk about your personal style, potential session themes, your family, what to wear, look at products, and just generally get to know each other a bit. It’s fun, I promise! Once I finish shooting, we’ll schedule your in-person ordering session; I’ll come to you and meet you at your home or a location of your choosing! We’ll look at your amazing photos, you’ll ooh and ahh, and I’ll help you narrow down your favorites and plan a beautiful display. After you place your order, I’ll activate an online gallery for your friends and family so you don’t have to worry about which photos your baby’s godmother will love or choosing prints for Great Aunt Helen… unless you want to!
Above all, I treat my clients the way I want to be treated as a customer. And let me tell you, I have some pretty high standards. Emails are answered in a timely manner. Calls are returned ASAP. I don’t leave you hanging and I have a fast turnaround time.
Consider Hope and Memory Photography an investment. In 50 years, purses will be out of style and kids will outgrow name brand clothes, but your photos will still be there for you and your children and your children’s children to enjoy. Hold on to your memories.
Your session will be fully edited and ready for viewing within 2 weeks of your session. As soon as your photos are ready I will contact you to schedule your ordering session. Your order must be placed at the time of viewing so please make sure all decision makers are present. Once your order has been paid for your password protected online gallery will be activated. You will have 3 days (from the day your gallery is made available to you) to order prints before your gallery expires; reactivating your gallery after this time results in a $50 fee. If no prints are ordered within 30 days all images will be deleted. The images that you choose for prints will then be archived and available for reprints for 1 year.
*Please note that there is a print commitment of $375 in order to book a session. Print collections begin at $790 and 8×10 prints are $75. While I have clients with many backgrounds and budgets, my average client spends $1500-$1900. Payment plans are available when requested.
