So you're investing your time and money and energy into a professional photography session. Whether that session is in celebration of a life achievement, a milestone or simply to preserve a moment in time you're expending your time, energy and money, for what? For pictures to sit on a usb drive forever until USB drives become obsolete? Maybe they'll sit in a cloud forever only thought of occasionally until they are not thought of at all. Maybe a few will get posted on facebook or instagram where, unless somebody is doing some intense facebook stalking, they again will get buried in the depths of cyberspace along with the cell phone pic of Uncle Joe wearing a lampshade after one too many tequila shots (that was oddly specific wasn't it?).
I mean, this is obviously just me voicing my opinion here, but, it seems to me that if these are your options for your beautiful professional images that you are putting time into planning the date, location, time, what to wear and on and on and on, not to mention your hard earned money, it seems to me like you'd want to do something kinda special with them. Am I right?
Ok, if you're still with me let's talk a little bit about decorating with your images!
So, when you think about ordering your prints you'll want to start by thinking about where and how you'll want to display them. There's the traditional large wall print. I'm not talking the 8x10 print...that's the one you give to grandma to put on her dresser. I am talking about the big beautiful 16x20 or 20x30 wall art piece. Maybe it's a large framed print, maybe it's a gallery wrapped canvas, maybe it's a cool modern metal print. Oh gosh, too many options now what!?! I know it can super overwhelming. Here's a link that might help you if the traditional wall print is the way you want to go for decorating your home and/or office with your professional images .
Maybe you're a bit more like me in that you want to be able to display LOTS of images. I mean if I am spending money on this endeavor I want it all! I would suggest ordering several prints and creating a wall collage. Again, what you decide on ordering will depend on your style and your budget. A collage of metal prints is going to look completely and totally amazing but your wallet might be telling you to stick to the more cost effective option of mounted or traditional loose prints. Here is a link to my Pinterest board with some really cool and stylish ways of displaying your family photos. I love so many of these options but the one that I love the most is the one where you lean your images on a simple shelf. There are so many options and minimal effort in creating this display. You can do it with framed prints, metal prints, canvas wrapped art, and the most cost effective way, simple mounted prints. These prints come mounted on a piece of board making it a perfect stand alone print. You can get varying sizes to create an interesting, beautiful wall display very easily without the fuss of leveling, putting holes in the walls and all that jazz.
I sure hope this has helped give you some ideas on how to display your photos from your next photography session.
