Digital Download: We are offering the option of Digital Downloading to Clients who also receive a DVD or Flash Drive of their Session, with the exception of the following Packages: Elegance Wedding Package and Memories are Forever Wedding Package which will still be placed on a Flash Drive or DVD.
What is a digital download? Abigayle Ray Photography uploads all photographs from your Session to our secure photo hosting website (www.abigaylerayphotography.com) in a password protected gallery, so only you have the password or those that you give it to. You can then view all the photographs from your Session and also save them to your computer, external hard drive, memory card, or flash drive (by right click saving for a low resolution image suitable for email and internet or clicking the download icon on the image for full resolution of the image). The photographs are in the same resolution, quality and size as you would get on a DVD or Flash Drive, just without the extra time it takes to put a DVD or Flash Drive together plus mail time (usually 3-5 days), so as soon as we are done editing your Session, we upload them and they are immediately available for you to view and download.
All photographs on any website that we use and display Sessions on, including our photo hosting website, will be displayed for a minimum of Thirty (30) days from the date of uploading of the Session, after that time the Studio can choose to remove the Session from any website at anytime without notice to the Client.
Website/Internet Hosting of Client Sessions: Client's Sessions will be placed on our website (http://www.abigaylerayphotography.com) under the year of the session (IE: 2013 client session's) and then scroll down from there to find your session (IE: John Doe Family Portrait Session 1-1-13). On our website there will be a select few photographs from your session displayed (public view).
Gallery Password: The Gallery on the photo hosting website will be password protected and the Client will be given the password and the Client will also have the opportunity to change the password (you must notify the Studio if you want the password changed as we have to do that on our end).
Length of time to display Session on any Website/Internet Location: Your online Gallery will be active for Thirty (30) days after you have been notified that it is available for viewing. If you need the Gallery up longer than the 30 days, it can be extended for an additional 30 days at a cost of $25.00 per 30 day period.
Removal of Client Password: After Thirty (30) days the studio can remove any password from any session (with the exception of Boudoir Sessions which will always remain password protected due to the nature of the session and Client privacy) so that the Session would become public. This is so that the Studio can show its work to other prospective Clients (use as a Portfolio). If Client does not agree to having their Session made public then they must contact the Studio by any means possible to notify the Studio of their wishes. It will then be up to the Studio if we continue the password protection. If the Studio does not wish to keep the password after notification the Client will be advised that the Studio will remove the Session in its entirety from the website/internet.
