Happy Valentine’s Day from our funny valentine!
Hi Everyone! I thought I’d do a little PSA on crop ratios today! Over the years I’ve had several clients who go to order their own prints, only to get them back cropped awkwardly and they’re left confused. Why did I lose so much of my image? The print lab did something wrong! So this is something that a lot of people don’t know, photo print ratios are totally off! Pictures are taken in camera at a 4×6 ratio, but an 8×10 crops out two inches! TWO inches of your photo! You’d actually need an 8×12 to get the full frame of the image. A 5×7 is the same way, you also lose some of the image, though not as much as an 8×10. Unfortunately this is just the world we live in for standard prints and frames! I’ve never understood why a 8×12 frame isn’t an option to buy, if you wanted that for your photos you’d have to get it custom framed. That’s expensive! So to help illustrate this point a little better, here is a guide for how an image crops when printed at different sizes:
| for horizontal |
| and for vertical |
Now, the BEST thing that you can do is to order prints through your photographer! They will make sure each image is cropped so that the photo still includes what’s most important: you! and not something on the side of the image. But if you are wanting to print your own photos, knowing how much a crop changes your photo is important for your frames. I hope this helped someone understand crop ratios a bit more, and that the next time you order prints they come out beautifully!

It’s that time of year again! The holidays are just around the corner (13 weeks until Christmas!) and photos for holiday cards and gifts are a must! I have a busy fall and will be offering holiday mini sessions on two different days this year, October 29th and November 5th. I’m also offering two different kinds of sessions again this year: digital and film. Digital is the traditional way I’ve shot, but I also have a medium format camera that produces beautiful, creamy-dreamy images. A little nostalgic and a little more fine art! All of the details are below, and I’m only offering 5 slots on each day.
Please send me an email or a message through the contact link above to secure your slot. Please also specify if you’d like the digital or film session in your message. If you’d like a family session but aren’t able make one of these days, my regular Mini Session will be the session to book instead (weekdays only). The Holiday Session pricing will only be honored on the days above. Location will be given once your session is booked.
Time slots are first come first serve
I cannot wait to see all of my favorite families this year (and hopefully some new faces too!). If you have any questions about the sessions as well please send me a message. I’ll be happy to answer whatever I can.
Happy (early) Holidays!
Hello everyone! Our own sweet little guy decided to come early on 8.8.16! So that we can enjoy as many moments as possible with him, Ashley McCormick Photography will be closed for sessions until October 2016, and will resume shooting a limited number at that time. Bookings can still be made for fall/holiday sessions now, I will only be taking 8 per month. Emails/phone calls are also being returned, just at a little slower pace than usual, someone is keeping us busy! 😉 Thank you for understanding and celebrating with us!
