A New Service!

For years, pretty much since the beginning of Naomi Elizabeth Photography, when not just clients but anyone local asked my recommendation of where to print their photos, my very quick answer was JMC Photo & Digital! It was a local print shop owned by two sisters. Their parents started the business years ago & the daughters carried it on. They did a wonderful job staying on top of the needs of their clients & offered so many services! It was the easiest answer for me & I loved sending people their way.

I am very, very sad to say that in 2022 one of the sisters passed away. I was able to offer my condolences personally to her surviving sister & was so sad for her. The business closed very shortly.

Over that time many, many of you have asked WHERE should you print your photos?? Yes there is Shutterfly (which I personally am not a fan of & only print my photo books through) & yes there is Walmart (I do use their online option & have it shipped to me – for a better quality print never pickup in store!) & the quick CVS prints & such. But the search for a quality print option that I could recommend has taken time.

I had other photographer friends recommend two online options to me & over the past few years I have printed my own photos with them & been very, very pleased.

Over the past few months questions of WHERE to print have become more frequent & I felt the time had come to help find an answer. In those months Eric helped me look into an option that has always been there. I just hadn’t felt comfortable offering this service BECAUSE JMC was there & I had wanted to support someone local. With their business sadly closing JMC is obviously not an option & I want to help find a trusted place to print your memories.

I use a photo service called Shootproof. It’s the website that if you’re a client of mine you receive your photos from via an online gallery. It’s also the same service I use to send invoices, sign contracts & receive payment.

Shootproof partners with about 5 photo labs from around the United States. Photographers (me) can choose which photo lab THEY prefer & when a client (you) gets their finished gallery from their photographer, they can order prints & products directly from that gallery. The two photo labs I personally have printed from are 2 of the 5 photo labs Shootproof works with!

Starting NOW when you have a session with me & receive your finished gallery, if you choose to you can order prints & products (including Christmas cards!) straight from your gallery! I make a small commission from the items you purchase & a small percentage also goes back to Shootproof the hosting service.

I am really, really, really excited about this! I know not everyone will use this service & it’s quite alright! I just know many of you need this & have asked & I’m so thankful I have an option now! And it’s a GOOD option!

Mpix is the photo lab, should you choose to order thru your photo gallery, that will fulfill your orders for prints, canvases & metal art prints. I have linked those products & prices HERE.

WHCC is the photo lab that will fulfill your orders for Christmas Cards! (The average price per Christmas Card is $1.00. So $25.00 for 25 cards!)

So what happens now? For those clients I got to work with in 2023, you get first dibs! If you were a client of mine in 2023 & want to order a product from Mpix or Christmas Cards from WHCC all you need to do is email me & we’ll get the ball rolling! I’ll upload your photo gallery from your requested session & you can get to ordering!
