Your Investment

We don't consider the investment you make with us only as a "price" or a "cost." You are truly making an investment in your family's history. Our images capture those milestones in your life and our prints, canvases, and albums preserve those memories for generations to come.



With The Highlander Studios you are not limited to digital files to be lost in the next computer crash or when a scratch befalls your disc. If you value your family's memories, you won't settle for others who offer you this type of service. Charles R. Lawson, CPP, AFP is not only an award-winning imagemaker, but also a master printmaker creating your heirlooms in-house, by hand. You will never be responsible for printing your own photographs. We never limit you to inferior, non-professional printing services online or at a big-box retailer.
