How will you enjoy your images and what are you looking to accomplish with them?
Investing in professionally shot portraits likely means that you want to enjoy your memories long-term in high quality products. Full-service photographers have relationships with professional labs, album binders, and framers to make it easy for you to come away with art you can fall in love with, enjoy each day, and pass on to your children. Many families consider these heirlooms their most valuable possessions, and they grow more valuable over time!
If this is your goal, choose a photographer that offers these services. When it’s all said and done they will hand you your personal art work that will be ready to hang, display, or gift without any work on your end. The quality and longevity of professionals products rises far above what you’ll find at consumer sites such as Costco or ShutterFly.
Some of the most classic products are:
Framed Wall Art
Enjoy art of your family every day of your life! Whether it's a custom designed gallery to tell your story, or simply one gorgeous image, adding your framed portrait art instantly infuses any space with warmth and memory. Having your portraits framed through your photographer means that you don’t have to stress about printing high-quality prints or hunting down that perfect frame. Your photographer will help you each step of the way from choosing your favorite portraits to designing and framing your wall art.
Gallery Wrapped Canvases
Canvas portraits allow you to enjoy art on a larger scale, without framing. Your images are professionally printed on canvas and then wrapped around a custom-made wood frame that will fit any decor style. If you want to make a statement with one gorgeous large-scale image, using canvas is the way to go.
Albums are the perfect collectible to feature ALL your images in one place and can be passed down through the generations. A keepsake album from your photographer will feature professionally printed images on real photographic paper, custom bound and hand finished for a product that is unique to your family alone. (these are my personal favorite!)
Don’t forget about your families and friends! They’ll want to enjoy your images too. Simple prints, either framed or loose, make thoughtful gifts for the special people in your life.
