A higher level of service for my Seattle area photography clients

Improved service and photography that you can cherish forever

Quality photography products for Seattle area photographypinimage

You may have heard that things are changing at Tracie Howe Photography. I am so excited to introduce a higher level of service to all of my Seattle area photography clients and so far people are loving it! It involves my newest proofing system and cool new products, all meant to provide a better experience for you!

How it works

It’s easy. Once your photos are ready for viewing, I come to your home for a viewing session. We sort through your favorites, figure out what prints, products, or digital files you want, and even see what specific photos will look like ON your wall (I have a super awesome iPad app that makes this possible!) You complete your order right then and there. From then on, you just sit back and wait for all of the wonderful things to arrive.

No more time out of your busy schedule

In fact, this should take less time than it would with the old way, unless you’re a super fast decision maker! The idea is that you set aside a little time and get it over with. No more back and forth emails. No more “I’ll get to this tonight” and then putting it off. Plus, it’s fun! You can invite your whole family if you like. Or maybe don’t tell anyone if you’re thinking of gifts for them.

              It’s a big deal

This is a viewing of your photos for the first time, the way they should look. So often before, my   clients would view their photos on an uncalibrated computer screen, not able to see them as they were intended to look, because the color and contrast would be off. They would then take the photos to be printed at a local drug store and get results that are equally unimpressive. The problem is, they didn’t know what they were missing.

When you see your photos as I have intended them to look, then you will have a better understanding of what you are investing in. Not only that, but I want you to see the difference between my high quality, archival prints (100 years+) and the ones you can get from any commercial printer. I encourage everyone to complete the process when hiring a professional. What’s the point of spending hard earned money on a professional photographer if you are going to take home an unprofessional print?

So, what if you don’t want any prints? That is totally fine and your choice! Digital files are still available for purchase. I only encourage prints, because I’ve had too many people come back to me regretting that they never did anything with their files. The files just sat on a hard drive and no one ever got around to looking at them again or getting them printed at all.

Real family keepsakes

I strongly believe that we photographers are working to preserve your memories. Hard drives go bad. Thousands and thousands of digital photos over the years tend to overwhelm and diminish the special moments, whether captured professionally or not. People won’t flip through a computer’s folder looking at photos like they will flip through an album on a coffee table. I don’t know about you, but the Polaroids from my childhood are far more precious to me than any digital photo I’ve ever had on my computer. If a select few were printed well, then they could be passed on as keepsakes for my family. Much more meaningful as tangible heirlooms.

   Cool new stuff!

With the launch of this new system, I have also added a few new products. Quality, archival products that will last for years and can be passed down through the family. In addition to books, canvases, and standouts, now I also have heirloom boxes to collect your favorite prints, a sleek mini book-like folio, and pop-out ornament holiday cards. I’m super excited about showing off my new products in person, and I can’t wait for my next viewing session with you!
