What Happens After the Shoot

A few weeks after your shoot we’ll schedule another appointment in your home to view the photos and order prints. Print orders take 2-4 weeks depending on size and will be delivered personally to your home.

The best images from your shoot will be watermarked and posted online in low-resolution for viewing and sharing with friends & family. These images are not intended for printing. You are encouraged to repost these images and can qualify for FREE prints if you do so (see below for details).

I'm still working on a plan for my customers to have access to digital copies of my work. I want to deliver amazing prints of your family that you hang on your wall and cherish for decades. I don't want to charge for a CD that you eventually resent because it represents an errand that you don't feel like taking care of. Therein lies my struggle. I'll probably eventually bundle digital versions into large print orders.


  • All sales are final due to the custom nature of my work.
  • Add 6.6% AZ sales tax to all fees & prices. (required by law: don't like it? write your congress representative)
  • Make payments via check or money order to Dan Hixon. Major credit cards are also accepted.
