A word about digital files.

The digital revolution has brought many changes to the photographic industry and beyond. 
Digital files are not the complete answer to peoples imaging needs, although having them is a safety issue, the only way to ensure an archival record of your image is with a professionally printed photograph. Digital files may be lost, the media to view will change and a CD is not forever. This is why Mike Bowden Photography does not sell image files on their own. We offer the following:

Purchase a package or ala carte portrait and the digital file(s) will be an option to purchase, this way you will have the best of both worlds, a professionally edited and printed portrait plus if you wish, the digital file(s) to share on social media or make small prints either at home or your local lab. 

Once an image file leaves the studio we know that the quality that we envisioned may not shine through when printed at a local lab or at home, that is why we still offer to make quality portraits for you through our pro lab after your purchase of files.

Whatever your needs are we trust that we may fulfill them for you.
