Couple of issues

A couple of issues about the website:

Kids.  I’m really sensitive to parents that do not wish to have their kids pictures posted on the internet.  To date I’ve been going around and asking parents if it’s ok that I post my pictures.  So far, overwhelmingly parents have said that it’s fine to show the pictures of their kids.  In actuality, I take too many pictures and I never completely know who is who.  I think my line of demarcation will be that I will only post pictures of family and friends.  In the instance for a specific event like sports or school event I will password protect any pictures I will take.

THIS IS IMPORTANT: PLEASE LET ME KNOW IMMEDIATELY IF YOU WANT ME TO TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR CHILDREN DOWN!   [email protected]

 

Charging for prints.  To be honest, I personally had a little trouble coming to terms with this one.  This past Christmas I sent out almost 200 prints.  If my wife really knew how much it costs to send out cute little packages of prints at Christmas, let’s just say Santa’s workshop may not have been working as hard.  As easy as this website makes printing photos, there is still a cost involved.  The decision for mark up was just too easy.  If you feel better thinking about me scanning through each photo, editing, proofing etc.  I hope that helps.  Otherwise quite simply, it will offset my costs for this expensive hobby.  So, in terms of buying or not buying pictures/prints, my old teacher Al Brown used to tell a joke:

Patient – “Doctor, Doctor… it hurts when I go like this.”  My teacher would hold out his elbow with his arm perpendicular to the floor.

Doctor –  Mimics the same motion.  “Then, don’t go like this.”
