Showing off those treasured images makes your portrait session so much more worthwhile. Most people are pretty guilty of having great photos taken and then keeping them on their computer. Some go as far as making a print or two, but why spend money on a fabulous and personalized portrait session and not show off the results? I love creating amazing wall galleries for families to cherish for years as we all know life changes in an instant. And the great thing is that nowadays your wall art can be as stylish and creative as you and your home. If you intent and/or want to show off those treasured memories on your walls (whether it be in the family room, nursery or on your dining room wall) there are so many ways to really make your images pop. Here are a few ideas to get the creative juices flowing…
1. Look around your home to give yourself an idea of what to wear. We all have our favourite colours and tend to decorate our homes with them. Whether it be grey’s or browns as the base, you can add great pops of colour in your accessories and location choices. We all feel better in colours we love anyways and are WAY more likely to love the images when we feel as good as we look.
2. Figure out where you want to display your collection and do you want to display a lot of smaller images (such as a collection of 10 x 10′s) or a select few larger images. Or even just one.
3. Don’t be afraid to ask your photographer for location suggestions and clothing ideas. This is our job. To make you and your family look good and we want you to not only like the results, we want you to LOVE them.
I have created a Wall Gallery album on my Cora’s Photography Facebook page so if you need ideas, check there often as I’ll be updating it regularly.
