Session galleries will contain two folders of your portraits files. Please back up these files in multiple places as soon as possible. USBs & hard drives often fail and having your files in multiple places can safeguard against losing your files.

POSTING ON SOCIAL MEDIA: I LOVE it when my clients share their images. It’s such a wonderful way to let others in on the joy you are experiencing! I mean, it isn’t official until it’s on Instagram or Facebook, right?! You are more than welcome to share your images on all social media, I just ask one small favor of you! Please use the files from the Social Media folder as they have a small watermark and would you mind crediting my work and not adding any filters or edits to it? I know it seems silly, but this is such an incredible way to say, “Hey, we hired Jo and we love what she did!”

I am proud to say that referrals are my main source of bookings, so when you credit me, it helps my business immensely! If you are unsure how to credit, all you have to do is add a caption or tag my business by typing in: for Instagram @joespejophoto or Facebook: @Jocelyn Espejo Photography. If that isn’t pulling up, you could simply include my website www.jocelynespejo.com!   Again, it seems like a small thing but it makes such a huge difference and means the world to me! If you have absolutely any questions for me about this, please let me know! I hope you enjoy each and every image and I can’t wait to see what you do with them!

PRINTING:

Please use the “High Resolution File” folder containing your high res files for prints and other products.

  • CROPPING: Be aware that different sizes you choose to print will crop your images differently, (ie: an 8×10 will ‘chop’ off more than a 4×6 as the original image is in the 2:3 ratio) and some labs will take the liberty of cropping themselves if you do not do so beforehand or while uploading.

  • WHERE NOT TO PRINT: I strongly discourage the use of drugstore or discount internet photo labs. (Walgreens, Walmart, Target, Shutterfly, Snapfish, etc.) These utilize printing machines that make automatic color and contrast adjustments to images, causing your print to look vastly different than on screen.

  • WHERE TO PRINT: Color quality can only be guaranteed by purchasing fine art prints & albums through me as my monitor is carefully calibrated to match my professional labs.  I can help you with all of your print needs.  I can design a wall gallery for you with framed pictures or canvas wall art.  I can also design albums, or prints for frames.  However, I know sometimes you like to do some creating on your own!  So I have partnered with a couple of labs that I have found print with a high standard.  Mpix & Minted.  Let me know if you prefer to go the route of printing on your own and I will upload your photos to a gallery on these sites to make product design/creation so much easier for you.
