Our Process

Each of our photos is taken by us during our nature walks. When we return to our home studio, we upload and decide which photos to keep. Then, a couple days later, we go through the photos again with a more discerning eye to determine which ones to print. We print, from the original, only 10 photos per size, whether it be 5x7, 8x10, or larger. After the 10 photos are sold, we either destroy or archive the original. However, if a buyer is interested in the original digital photo, we will consider a negotiation.

Our Photographic Paper

We use only Endura Metallic professional paper for our photographs. This specialized paper adds a completely unique dimension for photographic output. With its glossy finish and metallic appearance, it creates images that are described as “Chrome on Paper” while adding depth, vibrant color, and flattering tones. The metallic paper creates unique black-and-white and color images that appear to be three-dimensional through a special combination of laminating layers with an ultra-bright background. This highly durable metallic paper is ideal for extreme sharpness, and brightness and color saturation for a unique, dramatic look.
