I truly believe photos are not meant to stay on your computer. I loved using point & shoot film cameras when I was younger because it was necessary to develop the photos in order to see what they looked like, and consequently I got physical copies of these memories that I put in an album. I have so many albums from my childhood up until about university & then the era of the internet took over! I found myself printing photos less and less. I’ve been cognizant of this the past few years & have made an effort into printing my photos more and more.
You’ve spent alot of money getting professional photos of you & the people you love, and so why wouldn’t you want to print them & share them with others that visit your house? Here are some options I’ve put together that will allow you to re-visit those memories.
I got this glass box from Winners for 20$. It’s such a beautiful way to display your images & the great thing about this box is that you can keep adding to the memories! The photos in this box are 4”x6” matte prints from the shop. I added some of my favorite dried pressed flowers in there.
There are so many ways of doing a gallery wall. Here I created a simple gallery wall of 5”x5” matte prints put into Ikea frames. The frames were less than 10$ each - a very cost effective way to get some images up on your wall!
Wooden Framed Photos
Depending on the space, I love a more rustic look to hanging my photos up. I got this wooden frame at Urban Outfitters & immediately fell in love with it. The great thing about it is that you can put a variety of different sized photos on it and it would still look good. This is the same frame with various sized prints (12x18, 11x14, & 16x24)
These are frames I got from Michaels in Toronto; they have a wide selection of frames to choose from & a variety of sizes. The matte prints in these frames are sized 8”x12”.
Note **** All of these photos that I will be showing you are photos I’ve taken and ones that have been printed straight from the online gallery that was sent to you. It’s printed on archival paper & the printers are constantly being calibrated. I have had a few clients go to fast service prints shops such as Walmart, Rapid Photo & Costco and they have emailed me asking why the prints come out in a different color than what is shown online to them - this is because many of these shops dont calibrate their printers & so the result is very unpredictable. I cant be held responsible for prints that you print through these sort of shops.
