When this cutie's mom contacted me about first birthday photos I was so excited! I love children's photography, of course, but I really enjoy capturing a kid just smashing into a birthday cake! I mean, c'mon, even a grown up would be happy tearing into a cake like that!
He was having a nascar/race themed birthday party so we wanted to incorporate that into some of the photos as well. His dad had this tire that belonged to some famous nascar driver so we used that in some photos! (How cool, right?) It definitely gave a unique feel to this first birthday photo shoot.

Clients often wonder why they should order prints from their photographer instead of Walgreens, Walmart or some other less expensive photo lab. Prints from your photographer can be significantly more costly compared to the .49 cent prints from a drugstore, but why is that?
Trust me when I say you are paying for a much better quality of print when you order from your photographer and the professional lab they use. Here are just a few reasons you should choose to purchase prints from the photographer.
1. Color Calibration/Correction : Photographers calibrate their monitors to make sure the photo prints they order are correct when it comes to color. When you send your photos to these other, cheaper labs, the color often does not turn out even close to the digital photo your photographer sent you. Just check out the original image below and how popular, non-professional photo labs do not print the correct colors at all.
2. Professionals will always order photographs with a lustre coating on them that other labs usually do not put on. This coating insures durability and long lasting prints that you can be sure to enjoy forever.
3. Photographers will guarantee 100% satisfaction for your prints, unlike large chain photo labs. Most of the time photographers are trying to build a long lasting relationship with their clients and reviews matter to them. They do not want to jeopardize those relationships or their reputation, therefore if a client is unhappy with their prints, the photographer will be sure to fix the problem.
There are other reasons to order from your photographer such as personalized packaging and of course, you are supporting local business. Most importantly, you truly will receive a higher quality of print when you order from your photographer.
