What to Expect After Your Smash Cake Session with TK Photography Chicago

You’ve enjoyed your Smash Cake Mini Session now what happens?

We believe that your little one’s smash cake session is just the beginning of a wonderful journey. We want to ensure that you have a seamless and enjoyable experience, even after the session is over. In this article, we’ll walk you through what happens next, so you know exactly what to expect.

Accessing Your High-Resolution Smash Cake Photos

A few weeks after your smash cake session, you’ll receive an email from us containing two important links. The download link allows you to access high-resolution and low-resolution images from your session. These images are carefully selected, edited, and retouched by our skilled editing team. The high-resolution images (found in the HighRes_PrintReady folder) are optimized for printing, ensuring that your prints come out sharp, vibrant, and ready to be displayed. The low-resolution images (located in the LowRes_WebReady folder) are perfect for online sharing and screen viewing, making it easy to share your little one’s special moments with friends and family on social media or via email.

The gallery link in the email grants you access to your private online gallery – a secure, personalized space that serves as a digital home for all the beautifully edited images captured during your smash cake session. This user-friendly platform allows you to easily view, order prints and printed products, and share your photos with loved ones. Your private gallery is designed to make your post-session experience as convenient and enjoyable as possible.

Sharing Smash Cake Memories with Loved Ones

We understand the importance of sharing your little one’s precious memories with your loved ones. That’s why our private gallery feature makes it simple for you to invite family and friends to view and even order prints of their favorite photos. By sharing a unique link, they can access the gallery, select the images they adore, and place their orders directly through our print lab’s easy-to-use online ordering system. This eliminates the need for you to play middleman for print orders, dealing with payments and delivery. Instead, your loved ones can order what they want, and the prints will be shipped directly to their doorstep – a win-win situation for everyone involved!

Exceptional Print Quality from Our Professional Lab

When you choose to order prints through your private gallery, you can trust that you’ll receive the highest quality products. We partner with a national professional print lab that utilizes state-of-the-art technology, premium materials, and expert techniques to ensure that your prints are vibrant, sharp, and built to last. By using professional-grade photo print paper, the lab guarantees that your prints will stand the test of time, allowing you to cherish these precious moments for years to come. Whether you’re ordering a few 4×6 prints or a large canvas gallery wrap, you can expect exceptional results that truly do justice to your little one’s special day.

Hassle-Free Print Ordering System

Ordering prints from your smash cake session gallery is a breeze with our print lab’s user-friendly online ordering system. Simply log into your private gallery, select the photos you’d like to print, choose your desired sizes and finishes, and complete your order. They have designed their system to be as straightforward and efficient as possible, eliminating the need to deal with complicated forms or confusing interfaces. Our goal is to make the print ordering process as seamless and stress-free as possible, so you can focus on enjoying your beautiful photos.

Convenient Door-to-Door Print Delivery

Once you’ve placed your print order, you can sit back and relax, knowing that your prints are in good hands. Our professional print lab will carefully process your order and ship your prints directly to your doorstep. No need to visit a local print shop or wait in line – your beautiful smash cake session prints will arrive at your home, ready for you to display and cherish.

Our No-Pressure Approach to Print Sales

At TK Photography Chicago, we’re passionate about capturing your little one’s milestones and providing you with a stress-free experience. We want to be photographers, not salespeople. That’s why we never pressure you to make print purchases during your session, after, or at any point if you don’t wish to order prints from the lab we use. We believe in letting our work speak for itself and allowing you to decide what products best suit your needs and preferences. Our primary goal is to create stunning images that you and your family will treasure for a lifetime. The decision to purchase prints is entirely up to you, and we respect that.

Safeguarding Your Precious Digital Memories

The digital image files you download are yours to keep, use, and print forever. You have the freedom to print them as many times as you’d like, whenever you choose. Whether you want to create prints now, when they graduate high school, or even at their retirement party, the images are yours to cherish and utilize as you see fit. However, we cannot emphasize enough the importance of keeping backup copies of your images.

To ensure the longevity and safety of your digital memories, we recommend investing in a few high-capacity hard drives, which are reasonably priced these days. Keep one hard drive in your safe at home, another in a safety deposit box at your bank, and even an extra copy offsite at a grandma’s house. In our 15 years of business, we have encountered numerous situations where clients have lost their precious photos due to hard drive failures, misplaced storage devices, and even fires at their residences. By having multiple backups, you can have peace of mind knowing that your cherished memories are secure.

Here, you’ll find recommendations for reliable hard drives and best practices for safeguarding your images. Remember, taking a few minutes to order a hard drive from Amazon and create backups can save you from the heartache of losing your irreplaceable smash cake session photos.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’re here to help you every step of the way, ensuring that your experience with us is nothing short of exceptional.
