Our images are copyright protected.  

We do not allow phones in our studios, they are very distracting.   I am hired as your photographer and the poses I take are not to be copied on phones while we are doing the session.  You are welcome to use them when we are finished.  A picture with the photographer is always welcomed.

We only sell digital images to business professional clients needing them for web/advertising.  We do give every portrait package order low res. images of their ordered wall portrait images for sharing socially and phones.

We believe in the power of prints and are very passionate about them.  Quality portraits stand the test of time.  Portraits are meant to display and enjoy daily.

We know you are excited and yes, we post sneak peeks on Facebook!  Be sure to like our Photography by Melinda page to share your images and be part of our referral plan.

Images are ready to view within 2 weeks.  Ordering appointments are in person, not online.  Exceptions are made when family members are out of town.  Please allow 1-2 hours for your viewing appointment.  It is hard to decide with so many great choices. 

After your order you may pay in full with check, cash or credit card.  We require 1/2 down to start your order. We offer payment plans on large order amounts.  Finished portrait orders are ready within 3 weeks.  When special framing is involved it will take longer.

We have a comfortable ordering area. Yes, we have snacks and drinks available.  Children are always welcome and most school age children bring a book, homework or special toy.

We always help our clients bring in items from their car for the session.  We also happily carry your finished order to your car and send you off with a hug of thanks.

Yes we are on Google Reviews and Facebook.  After you work with us please give us a review on Google and Facebook.  We look forward to and appreciate seeing your wonderful comments.

How often should you be photographed?  As often as you can!  Life flies by. Things happen.  Children change weekly and adults change, too.  Your story is very important to all who know and love you.

Do we ever have sales?  Randomly we might offer BOGO 50% off, or buy two get one FREE as well as friends and family sales.  Occassionally we do offer mini-sessions for those wanting a quick up-date.

Do we edit and print images that we did not take?  We do.
