Getting your pictures
Your photos will be available within three weeks of your session at an online gallery. We guarantee at least 15 photos but often deliver many more, all of which are yours to keep, share, post online, or print. You will receive a link to your photo collection that you can share with anyone you wish so your friends and family can look through your pictures too. When you receive the link you will also get a PIN number to download high-resolution versions of any and all photos that you want.
As you browse your gallery we encourage you to click the "Share" button on any images you like, which will then let you post them to online sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or even email. This is a great way to share your images with the world and let everyone see the results of your photo session.
None of your photos will have watermarks, logos, or branding of any kind at all. We want your photos to showcase you, not Stevens Creek Photography.
Photo Printing
Photos today are different from ten or twenty years ago. Back then the best way to experience pictures was through high-quality prints, and we have several just like this in our own home. However, most people today prefer to share their photos with friends and family digitally on social networks, messaging apps, or even through email. After you download your photos from your online gallery, what you do with them is entirely your own business and that includes sharing them online. You paid for the photos, so you should be able to enjoy them how you see fit--print, digital, or both.
If you do want to get prints made, by all means please do so! We do not put any sort of printing restrictions on your photos, and though we currently do not sell prints we are happy to recommend Mpix if you would like to order them on your own.
Social Media
We don't really do much on social media. We have a Facebook page that we set up years ago but don't update too often; we just leave it online because some people prefer to use that to get in touch. We won't post your pictures to Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Threads, or any other social network. If you would like to put your pictures online, go right ahead! We love seeing clients share their images with others, but we prefer to leave that kind of activity to you—not us.
At most you can expect to see two or three shots posted here on our website to give others an idea of the kinds of pictures we take, but these pictures won't have your name or any personal information. And even then, if you would rather not have us put your pictures on the website we will of course respect your wishes. These are your photos, your precious memories, and we want you to be in control of who sees them and how they are shared.
