The Birth of The Image Connection initially started after an exhaustive search on behalf of our customers for an E-Commerce solution to specifically meet the unique needs of the School and Senior portrait markets. We were told time and again by photographers that there just did not seem to be any services that met their needs. We also heard over and over how photographers clients would constantly inquire as to why ordering their children's school pictures had still not entered the internet age!
The conclusion? We found nothing was ideal! So we set out to build a service ourselves. One that would meet the needs of both the photographer and the consumer alike. A place where photographers would have the ability to offer beautiful online client viewing galleries where they could sell photos and products. And do this with very little time, effort and investment on their part.
Our goal is to provide a simple and intuitive E-Commerce solution specifically designed with the School and Portrait photographers needs in mind.
Our service is constantly growing and evolving as we build relationships by listening to you and your needs. We grow by both word of mouth and by taking care of our customers.
Our desire is to become your long-term sales and fulfillment partner and the hub for your photography business online.
