{CLIENT ORDERING PLANNER}

Thank you so much for choosing smileabunch photography for your portraits! Your online gallery will be active for one week. Each photo is labeled with a unique number (the last 4 digits) that you can easily refer to in your communications with me. In my experience, ordering prints can be overwhelming and even stressful for my clients because they love all of the images so much they don’t know kn where to start. Because I am want your photo experience to be delightful every step of the way, I have designed this planner to simplify the process and assist you in preparing your order with smileabunch photography. Your vision for your portraits is so important to me and I am here to help you make that vision come to life. I hope that this tool can help you determine what your needs are and how we can meet them together. It will be as if I am right there with you through the whole process (however, since I am not really there, feel free to give me a call at any point for assistance or with questions at 801-560-3634)! 801 My clients often laugh when I tell them I am willing to come to their house and help them design a display for their walls,, but I am totally to serious!

{Getting Started} Let’s start by choosing your favorite images from your session. I recommend choosing your top 5 and then go from there if you have some others that you absolutely cannot leave off the list!

The sky is the limit on the wishlist, so DREAM BIG!

{A Note about Cropping} My cameras capture your images at a 4:3 ratio. Without getting too technical, the print size that you choose can alter the appearance of your final image. Some images lose ose their artistry when cropped, so please consult me in reference to a specific image if you are unsure. Here’s a quick ck overview of the most popular print sizes and how they will affect your images.

8x12, 4x6, 16x20, 20x30

11x14

8x10 & 16x20

This is how the image is captured in camera and the ratio at which all of your images will be presented.
