Portrait Photos: Printing vs. Disc with Release

Last night I explored the options for photo sessions. The choice before me was: do I give my clients a disc with their photos and a release to print, or do I set up a way to order prints?

After a bit of research, I think I have come up with a solution that is the best of both worlds. Shutterfly has an awesome professional photographer program, so I believe I will use that for ordering prints. However, I will offer a disc with small images that are watermarked for my clients to display on social networking sites. This way I can make sure that any printed images are of the best quality but all allow my clients to post their beautiful pictures for friends and family to see.

Presentation Day

Today is the day I present this business idea to the people who will potentially be my biggest supporters…my mother and sisters.  We are going to have lunch and discuss my plans and visions.
