A Word About Copyright Laws...
The Copyright Act protects photographers by giving the author of the photograph the exclusive right to reproduce the image. This includes the right to control the making of copies. It is illegal to copy or reproduce photographs without written permission, and violators of the Federal Law can be subject to civil and criminal penalties.

Please don't harm my reputation by having poor quality copies made of my hard work
A copy is never as good as the original and when you handout a cheap copy, you damage my hard earned reputation and deprive me of my livelihood. I have to provide for my family just as you do. You came to my studio and asked me to create images for you. I have given myself, my talent and time to make beautiful memories for you and your family. Please allow me to make any additional prints or products you would like. My Family and I thank you.
Sincerely, Karen Toohey
