Your Images Deserve to grace your home
Hi, friends! Today's blog post is all about printing your images and also eight awesome wall art grouping ideas to get you started! If this is your first time here, welcome! If you're a returning reader I am stoked you've taken the time to visit again!
As you may know, I'm a professional photographer specializing in custom baby portraiture in the greater Houston area; I've been in business since 2013. However, I'm also a busy mom to 4 kiddos and despite working full time, I do make displaying their photos in our home a priority.
The point of having photos taken is to display them in your home as either prints, canvas, metal, acrylic, or also as albums. They're not meant to sit on a computer. They look much better on the walls than on a hard drive, I promise! I must also note, nonetheless, that many parents have relayed they prefer fully digital collections in which they purchase the rights to print their images. I do enjoy catering to you and offering modern galleries and a print release, though I also would like to guide you in displaying your photos.
What can easily happen is that you receive your gallery from me. The images are retouched and perfected; they're full size meaning you can print as small as 4x6" or as large as 50x60" if needed. Parents instantly download their images from the private gallery. Then, 6 months later, the parents tell me they never actually printed any of their photos. Parents are busy, but also parents may not be sure how to design a wall art grouping or how to display their photos.
Have no worries. :-)
This blog post is intended to share stunning ways to show off your images you invested in; it's also my way of educating you on *why* images should be on the walls. My home is covered in fine art of my little ones and family and clients often oooh and ahhhh over the heirloom pieces.
The lab recommendations you receive from me are not professional grade since professional labs only work with professional photographers (see the trend there: professional, ha!). But in all seriousness it's true: the labs that work with professional photographers sell the highest quality items and require a tax ID number to register with their lab. They are here to serve photographers and not mass consumers. I do sell many lovely options such as the ones you see in my studio or in my home, but this brings us back to what I noted early: parents are often seeking digital files and sometimes decline wall art design and professional products from me.
I do offer many heirloom pieces, as you will pass these down to your children, but I acknowledge you've purchased the rights to print these images on your own. This in mind, I would like to share some really awesome ideas on how to display your session so you're not stuck, unsure of what looks nice.
Remember: wall art groupings are super cohesive and make a huge statement in your home.
Lab recommendation for canvas or prints: www.mpix.com though my favorite lab for other products is Artifact Uprising. You may like reading this post on authentic ways to showcase your baby's first session.
