Hi, I met you on another thread. I commented there but wasn't sure if you would see it.
Basic copy and paste:
Just looked at your covers on your Facebook page. Liked and shared it (not that I actually have that many Facebook friends) but I really like your work. You are very versatile. I'll need some more covers down the track and will see what you have available then. I write in a couple of genres and have an idea I am working on that your style will work very nicely with though of course I have to write it first.

Hi Mara, good to hear from you, and hope sales are going well! I'm actually planning on doing some more sweet/Christian romance and woman's fiction covers (after this batch of steamy ones) - will share here when they're up
I'm so excited about my cover by Angela Haddon! She was wonderful about listening to what I would like, then adapting it and "fixing" it to make beautiful ebook and paperback covers. She was extremely prompt and responsive, too--I will definitely work with her again! Thank you, Angela!
I love your covers. I see that most of them are based on a single photo. Are these stock photos and is there a risk that another author might just buy the same stock photo and make a cover similar to one I might buy from you?
All my premades are from licensed stock images - this is to keep the cost down. Unfortunately, there's always a chance that someone else will buy that same image and use it to create their own cover. It's highly unlikely that it will be identical, as things like placement, image editing/combination, and font choice would all be different, but you are correct: the basic stock images themselves are not exclusive.
As an aside, I'm more than happy to work with exclusive photos, if that's something you need, but I should point out that exclusive images usually cost somewhere between US$500 and US$1000 (depending on the photographer and model). Obviously this bumps up the price quite a bit!! However, if you want a guarantee that nobody will ever use that same image, that's what you'd be looking at. The other alternative is providing your own photography, which would ensure that you have the exclusive rights to that image.
I hope that's clear, but let me know if you have any more questions
