What should I do to prepare for my session?
Choose your attire & coordinate accessories, jewelry & props. Remember to get plenty of rest the night before and check & double check that you’ve packed everything. High School Seniors, remember to check out the “preparing for your session” guide. For the little ones, remember water, an easy to eat snack and something to capture their attention.

Gather all your clothing options, props, and accessories and double check you have everything prior to leaving home. Allow yourself extra time, it’s always better to be early than late. Let’s have some FUN! Today is your day. Let us know any ideas or concepts you would like to try.
How do I order my prints and products?
Your images will be ready 7 to 10+ days after your session. You will come to the studio to view your gallery images and place your order, so please make sure all decision makers are present. Call the studio (812) 279-0268 and ask for Tonia when you are ready to place your order and we will schedule your viewing and ordering session.
We will start with a slideshow set to music which will overview all of your images. Relax and Enjoy this is the fun part. Next, we will separate your “favorites” into on group and put the rest aside. We don’t delete, just separate so we can always bring things back. Finally, we will complete your order: yearbook (high school seniors), wall portrait or collection, gift prints, wallets, keepsake products and proofs.
Payment in full is appreciated. We require a payment of 50% of your remaining balance to begin processing your order. A $100 reprocessing fee will be applied if your order is not placed at your initial ordering session. We recommend you leave the little ones at home so you can focus on your beautiful images.
What should I do to prepare for my ordering session?
If we are matching a previous order or specific print on the wall, please measure the image size before you come. Measure your total wall space where you’re thinking of putting images so we can choose the correct image size. If you don’t have wall space, have you looked at other options like our session book or album, multiple image cubes or a display shelf with a few 11×14’s, 8×10’s and 5×7’s? Who do you need to order prints for and what size? Do you want prints or digital files? Do you want proofs? We recommend you make a list so you don’t forget anyone.
Can my friends and family who live out of town view my images?
If you have out of town family and friends who want to view and order images of their own, we offer a password protected online gallery. The gallery will be available after you’ve completed your minimum order or made a $200 proofing deposit. A valid email address required to receive your gallery password.
