One of the biggest parts of my job that I love, and that I love to share with all of you, is printing your photos and not just letting them sit on your computer or phone. So, I want to share with you 5 ways to display your photos in your home! Does this sound like something you need? I’m here to help!! Below, I’m sharing some tips for how to get those photos off your hard drive and into your hands!
I LOVE albums so much. They are one of my favorite ways to get a ton of printed photos from your session in your home. Lay flat albums are especially great for this. You can end up with one photo printed across the whole spread to give you a large 10×20 image, or you can have up to 24 on a page (great for receptions!).
My packages come with a 10×10 lay flat linen album with 10 spreads (20 pages) and I am so happy that we end your experience with some photos in your hands!
2. Framed prints
The second of the 5 ways to display your photos in your home: framed prints! From 4×6 to 16×24 to 20×30, print those photos and hang them on the wall! Or display them on your shelves and end tables. But, my point is, you should print and frame a few from your session to bring a smile to your face every time you’re around it. There will be a blog post up next Monday about some great places to print your photos!
3. A gallery wall
One of my favorite decorations in our home is the canvas gallery wall we have from our wedding. We have them hanging in our living room and they bring me so much joy. Wynn has started to talk about them (they hang above the couch) and he likes to point out where we are in the photos.
We can totally design your custom gallery wall together, or some sites have common combinations you can pick from.
4. Fridge prints
This is one we started doing to help Wynn familiarize himself with people. We’ve printed a bunch of 4×6 photos and use the clear magnetic frames to put them on the lower part of the fridge where he can see them. He likes to point out the different people he knows and rattle off their names. So, this is a fun one if you have some littles!
5. Other photos books
And when I say “PRINT YOUR PHOTOS!” I don’t just mean the ones from our session! We have a private family instagram account where we share phone photos. We linked that account to Chatbooks. We get a new Chatbook every time we post 60 photos. It’s awesome.
I also take a lot of personal photos on my DSLR camera. I edit those and we print them in a 12×12 photo book from Blurb books. I love these books, and I started the year after we got married. They were around 200-220ish pages for 2018 and 2019. The one for 2020 (Wynn’s first full year of life) is 396 pages. The books have a 440 page limit with standard photo paper. The album for 2021 is still being designed. I am a little worried I’ll need multiple volumes for 2022 with another baby on the way.
