Together, Let's Beautify Your Space
Your fabulous photos are ready, you look amazing, and your magical moments are captured for eternity. But now what? You can't just leave them on your hard drive to go unseen by the rest of the world. Sure, you'll post them to Facebook and Instagram (tagging your talented photographer, of course) and tell all your friends how excited you are about how they turned out. But then they'll get lost on your hard drive (or USB) and forgotten about. How sad!
I have so many better ideas of what to do with your photos. You took all that time to plan and prepare and look your absolute best. You need to be reminded of that beautiful moment daily. Your family needs to gaze upon your radiant face even when you aren't there. You need wall art and albums and other cool keepsakes to get your photos off your computer and into existence. Here are a few ways you can do that!
For starters, good old-fashioned prints (4x6s, 8x10s, wallets) are all still a possibility. You can still have your pictures printed like everyone had to do before digital existed. Prints make great gifts, can be framed, and still fit nicely into an album or scrapbook.
One way you can decorate the walls of your house is with framed prints (as mentioned above). It's a classic look that many of us grew up with. I know my mom had our annual Christmas picture over the fireplace and our graduation and communion pictures adorning the other walls of the living room. Frames can hang on walls and also sit on shelves and tabletops. (And they come in a lot of different finishes and colors.)
But today, wall art has been taken to new heights.
- Canvas wall art is extremely popular and has been for several years. Your personal photos can now look like a work of art previously only created by painters.
- Your photos can also be printed on wood. These works of art are soft and subtle. They offer an entirely different look and feel for your portraits.
- Finally, your photos can take a more dramatic look and be printed on metal. Metal prints are bold, bright, and edgy.
The coolest part about wall art is that it can all be mixed and match--framed art paired with metal prints, canvases with wooden portraits. And even cooler, I can help you design your wall. All it takes it a snapshot of your blank wall and then some imagination.
Wall art is available in a variety of sizes; prices start at $150 for an 8x8.
Holiday cards, thank you cards, graduation announcements--you name it. You can create your own unique cards with just a few clicks. After your session, you'll receive a link with all the images from your session and tons of card templates you can embellish, tweak, and make all your own.
Custom cards start at $100 for a set of 25.
PhotoShelfies feature three 8x8 images on a wooden base that can be displayed on any surface in your home. I currently have one sitting on the cabinet under my TV. It fills the empty space between the top of the cabinet and the bottom of the TV quite nicely. I love the way it looks and how easy it is to update the photos.
Image Cubes have six customize-able sides for pictures, text, and even graphics. Pair several together to create something cool--one for each of your children's first birthday or treat like alphabet blocks from your childhood and stack together.
Photo Ornaments are a beautiful keepsake you can hang on your Christmas tree, gift to you family and friends, or display anywhere you can imagine. Ornaments are both wooden and metal and can feature a family portrait, special event photo, or senior portrait--whatever you want to commemorate.
Accordion Mini Albums
Accordion Mini Albums are super fun wallet-sized albums that can be carried around in your purse, displayed on a shelf, or stuck to your refrigerator (they are magnetic). They hold up to 14 images laid out in a unique design made just for your style. They come in sets of three, so you can keep one and give two away to your loved ones for gifts or mementos.
Albums & Image Boxes
What a better way to share your story than in a real-life storybook! Albums and image boxes are wonderful keepsakes to pull out and show your friends, to reminisce with your family years later, and to just leave on a coffee table as a conversation starter.
Albums are completely customize-able with original layouts on each page and personalized photo covers. They are available in two sizes (10x10 or 12x12) and a variety of colored leathers and fabric.
Image boxes have customize-able covers with various fabrics and leathers to choose from as well as original cover designs to reflect your unique personality and images.
Image boxes start at $650 and storybook albums start at $750.
