Include the following information

PHOTOS

Photos must be HIGH RESOLUTION, which means at least 3000 pixels on the longest dimension (either 3000 pixels high or wide). This translates to a jpeg size of approx. 3MB (3 Megabytes). If your photos are under 3 MB (3,000,000 kb), they are too small. ALL CAMERAS, INCLUDING PHONE CAMERAS, CAN TAKE HIGH RES IMAGES, but often compress them for emailing. Please call us for help in downloading / emailing high resolution originals from your phone and camera.

We look forward to seeing your work. Thank you!
