Fun With Photos Friday

Okay, so one of my new year’s resolutions was to keep the blog updated.  And it’s only taken me another 21 days to put up a new post, sooooo…I am really going to have to step it up if I’m going to keep this resolution! One of the ways I want to keep the blog fresh is to feature fun ways to use or display your portraits.  I will also be featuring some of the great products that I have available to help you do this.  The interior designer in me wants all of the amazing photos we capture in your session to be displayed in some way in your home, not sitting in a shoebox under your bed.  Who can enjoy them under there??  The custom portraits we create together can really turn your “house” into a Home. Just buying a large wall print is not the only way to go about this, there are tons of other ways, so that is what I will be devoting these Friday blog posts to.

This first week, I wanted to feature two things:

1.  Custom Frames

Did you know that I do custom framing??  I have a HUGE variety of custom frames available. Everything from formal heirloom quality frames, to the fun, whimsical frames I am featuring today.  The frames pictured below are some of my favorite product offerings. They come in a HUGE variety of colors and have so many fun options like trims, polka dots, stripes, you name it.  The great thing about these frames is that they can be color matched to the decor in the room you plan to display them in, whether it be a baby’s nursery, your children’s playroom, or your family room.

2. Display Ideas

Once you have chosen all those precious pictures and had them framed, how are you going to put them all on the walls?  Being a photographer, I have so many photos, that I can’t always just pick one large photo to hang in a particular space, so I often like to group photos .  Plus, I have lots of fun wall art and other decor that I like to display too.  Here are just a couple of ways I have incorporated our portraits into groupings.

***Okay, so I know some of you are wondering where the adorable John 3:16 painting came from.   I have to give a shout out to Show Offs Art.  I love this company and their paintings with scripture. They are a fun way to accomplish Deuteronomy 6: 5-9.

5 Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.  –Deuteronomy 6:5-9

If you are interested in seeing more of their awesome work, visit them at www.showoffsart.com.  Click on the “About Us” tab to see the cool story behind this canvas painting.

let me tell your story...

Every morning the sun rises and sets the stage for another chapter in the story of our lives. These days overflow with adventures and fairy tales. Our heroic little boys battle villains while our princesses prepare yet another table for tea.

As the sun sets, the day’s minutes fade into memories and another page turns. If only we could stop the clock. Bottle up the days of dragons, castles, tea times and Pegasus and preserve them for the generations to come.
