About RoadAheadPhotos

Sales 809
On Etsy since 2012

Life is a Journey!

Road Ahead Photos started from the fact that you never know what kind of exciting things are in store for you in the road ahead. If you don't go forward and take that first step . . you may miss out on the most wonderful adventures!
I have gone through multiple job losses and moved more times then I can count but I look at each moment as a blessing and a door that wouldn't have opened other wise. I am a former Southern California girl born and raised who is currently living in New Mexico. I spent a good portion of my life basically growing up in year round Christian camps and I have a great love for the outdoors. I also taught darkroom photography classes at camp and wherever I went . . .so did my camera. I am a former pre-school and kindergarten teacher and am currently a Reading and Phonics Tutor . . .I absolutely love working with kids!
In January of 2012 I decided to make Road Ahead Photos a reality. I am also fond of all things retro, Route 66 and road trips! I am often known to make those I travel with stop and turn around so I can go back and take that perfect photo!

"For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord; plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Road Ahead Photos can also be found on Facebook and pinterest

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)

  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
Please be reminded that all items are handmade by me. Other then my matted photos each item will be unique and different. No two will be the same. If you are not happy with your item in any way please let me know! Send me a message so we can work out a solution:)

If we come to the decision of a refund I can do that once you ship the item back to me. Items must be returned no later than 14 days. Customer must pay for the price of the return shipping.
Road Ahead Photos accepts payments through Pay Pal, Credit Cards and Etsy GIft Cards.

Due to new laws currently passed in the State of New Mexico, I have to charge tax to anyone who buys from my shop. In order to meet these requirements I have added my county tax rate into the price of each item in my shop.
I will ship to the address given to me on Etsy. Items will usually be shipped within 48 hours and come with a delivery confirmation. Custom Orders may take a bit longer for shipping depending on what you order. As for large orders paid with Esty Payment I will ship those when the payment has cleared.

If a large order of 15 or more items is placed by a customer my policy is to immediately contact the customer to confirm that this wasn't placed by error. I will not ship a large order out without confirmation from the customer. I will send a few messages through Etsy in order to confirm. If I do not hear back from the customer in 3-5 days I will assume a large order is fraud and I will cancel the order.

Currently I only ship within the United States.
Additional policies and FAQs
All matted Photos come in Color, Sepia and Black and White. If you see a photo you like but want it in another color or another size please let me know and I'd love do a special order just for you!
