If you have a disc you can make your own prints. I always include the DVD with ALL packages.
Print credit is like monopoly money given to you. You can use your money after the session to buy prints or products from the online gallery.

We charge tax on packages over $1,000 USD.
You will usually find photographers charge much more than a retail store for prints because the print rates include a
