If you’re the serious type, choosing detail photos (close-ups and landscapes) gives a more polished, editorial feel. Want to include your pets and little ones in your office? Consider black-and-white images, which feel professional, yet personal.
If your plan is to create a gallery wall, you don’t necessarily want a bunch of prints from the same photo session right next to each other. Choose 1-2 favorites from several sessions and sprinkle in photos from vacations, trips, and even everyday life. Purchasing a few print options at once makes it easier to switch out photos during a new season (or if you’re bored). Once the prints arrive, lay them out on the floor and take a bird’s eye view. Your gallery wall doesn’t have to “fit” perfectly: abstract and detail photos bring visual interest.
Not feeling the creative juices to design your own gallery wall? Never fear: Framebridge is here and has done all the hard work for you!
Albums and photo books
Photo albums are an optional add-on for all of my sessions: weddings and engagements, family, high school seniors, and commercial branding. When you purchase the add-on, you’re saving yourself tons of time organizing, culling, choosing photos, and designing the layout of the book. All albums I create are printed and bound on professional quality paper and shipped right to you. This saves you tons of time (especially if you’re indecisive).
If you’re the DIY type, I recommend the following sites to create your own albums and photobooks:
Artifact Uprising: for fancy, coffee table layflat albums and colorful photo book series
Mixbook: for user-friendly, without the frills photo book creation
Chatbooks: for fun, easy as it gets mini photobooks (it has an app that connects directly to your social media)
Keep an eye out for limited-time print discounts and sales I run throughout the year! Albums make GREAT Christmas gifts for the folks you love!
