Have you thought about what you’ll do with your portraits after your photo session? Though we all love to share our images on social media, I believe it’s even more important to print your photos so you can admire them on your wall and hold them in your hands! Since you’re investing in quality images, I want to make sure you get professional photo products that you can enjoy for a lifetime! I don’t want you to have to dig through a hard drive to do that!
I love to surround myself with family photos and memories. It makes my home look beautiful and feel inviting! My photos remind me every day that life is good, and I am blessed. The best part is that when my kids and grandkids see their photos they’re reminded of how important they are to me!
Did you know that science supports that putting your family photos on display at home can boost your child’s self esteem and feeling of belonging! It makes sense! Seeing those beautiful photos on your wall will remind you all of the wonderful bond you share that will last a lifetime.
When we plan your photo session, you should consider what you plan to DO with your photos. Knowing this in advance can help me capture the right poses and groupings and give me a better idea of locations to recommend. It will help me make sure I’ve got images that’ll look great in their intended destination.
Let your photographer know…
- Is the session a celebration of a special occasion, or are you documenting a milestone?
- Are there specific ‘shots’ or people groupings you want to be sure to capture at your session?
- Do you have wall space you’d love to fill with wall art or an arrangement of images? If so grab a quick cell phone photo!
- Would you like to print your favorite photos in a book or album?
- Do you plan to gift any of your portraits to family and friends? Make a note who gets what size.
- Are you looking to update your existing photo frames? If yes, now is a great time to jot down the sizes you’ll need!
Now let me introduce you to the printed photo products I offer. I’ve got wall art, books, albums and story boxes that I know you’ll love. Instead of just telling you about them, I’m going to show you in the following videos. It’ll be like show and tell!
1. Print your portraits as wall art
Print your portraits for your walls. You and your family will love having them where you walk past them every day in your home. I’d love to help you find a great spot for them. Your wall art will arrive ready to hang – whether it’s framed prints, canvas wraps, and I can help you design your display and show you exactly what it’ll look like on your wall before you order. Ask me how to photograph your wall so I can provide this service to you.
I provide complimentary design services & previews to help you decide where to hang photos in your home and what sizes & styles will look best.
2. Consider the Versatility of Matted Print Sets
No wall space? No problem! Print your portraits as a boxed print set! I call them “Story Boxes” and they come with 10 8×10’s or 15 5×7 images. You choose the cover style! Place your favorite image on the top or select a classy leather or fabric that coordinates with your home decor. They’ll look beautiful on your coffee table or shelf! Gift your matted images or add them to a frame. Some like to display their matted portraits on a decorative easel. You can purchase the story box a la carte or as part of a print collection.
3. Enjoy your photos in books and albums
Having your portraits bound into a gorgeous photo book or album is my favorite option for printing. You pick the images and cover material and I’ll go to work designing your layout options. You’ll get to review and approve before I place your order. Like all my printed products, you get the matching image files, sized for sharing on social media.
Sometimes Moms ask me, “Can I just get the digital image files and order my own prints and books?”
I do offer digital sets, but I make it more affordable to purchase a collection that includes digitals or a la carte products that include the matching digital downloads at no additional cost. This is so i can ensure your satisfaction with the final product quality. I want to save you the time and effort, and ensure your products are printed perfectly. So i would love it if you would let me handle the printing at my professional lab!
