High resolution images come standard in all commercial, event, and wedding packages. They are also included in the all-day portrait sessions as an incentive.
All portrait sessions that are half-day and shorter include only fully retouched Enhanced photos in high resolution. Their number depends on the length of the session, usually from 5 to 20. These are the images ready for their spotlight in BIG sizes, like posters and wall art.
Our main reasoning is that to maintain the known brand identity, we discourage printing large photos which were not fully retouched. All those un-retouched photos (a.k.a. proofs) are just the "directions" to the Enhanced images, the final images that reflect our intended vision and are given to you in their full glory. :)
However, you will get all the proofs! They will be in a social-friendly size and you can still make small prints with them.
The second reason is mundane—profit-making. If you must have the high resolution images from your shorter portrait session, they can be purchased either individually or as a whole set at a discount.

Can we do our own prints or albums or do we have to go through you?
By all means! First, after the image preparation (see "How soon will I see my photos?") you will have your own online gallery to view and share with your friends and family. What's more, the same gallery serves as an ordering system during our ...
Can I get RAW files in addition to high-resolution JPEGs that we purchase?
Sorry, no, but we may mean different things by "raw". If you just mean your images in digital format (sometimes incorrectly referred to as "digital negatives"), then yes, you will get them, in JPEG format ready for sharing and printing. Professional ...
How can I download images from a gallery?
Downloading is disabled until all tasks are completed, i.e., post-processing, cards, books, albums, canvas prints, etc. First, the studio needs to finish all work on the associated shoot. The gallery owner will receive an email when gallery becomes ...
How can we see our photos that you took?
Each booking will lead to creating an online gallery and this is where all photos will go when ready. The gallery is password-protected (different from your account password) but you can freely give access to your friends and family. This gallery is ...
