Happy Monday folks!
This is just a quick post to showcase a few items I offer my clients. A few of you out there are in the decision making process and had questions, I hope this helps!
Since the beginning of 2009 I have changed my portrait collections to be a bit more digital and a bit less print oriented, I will sell ala carte prints don’t get me wrong, I just love my family & portrait clients to have the whole CD so that is where I offer the best deals. This is the general rule with two notable exceptions. I still offer and adore selling books & canvas. Coffee table books and canvas are two creative and beautiful ways to showcase your custom photography art.
Canvases are stunning, there is no getting around it. It takes your family photos and really finishes them as fine art. The photo is printed on canvas and mounted over stretcher bars just like fine art canvas you would see in a gallery. The company I use coats and protects all of the canvases so they will actually last longer than a regular print. I have quite a few canvases hanging in my home and plans for more once we move.
Here are some sample images:
*please keep in mind I am not a product photographer*
This one seems like it was taken a million years ago, it’s my sweet little redhead. This is a 16×20 canvas, it hangs in the entry way of my home. We chose to pair it with some of her art, also on canvas. Here you can see that the image is wrapped around the corner of the bars. My Printer can also add a black or white boarder, but personally I love the photo wrap.
Here we have a client canvas I delivered a few months ago. This family went for a 30×36 canvas. It was beautiful! I took a few snaps before wrapping it up for delivery, stupidly I did not take it out of the plastic wrap, gah. The 30×36 was perfect for hanging over their mantle, in the living room. We also did this muted color tone to go with the colors of their home. It turned out so well I wanted to keep it! In the close up you can see the texture of the canvas in the little girls face.
When choosing to go canvas it is honestly an investment, these works of art are more expensive than other large prints, but very worth it in the end in my option. It is for this reason I am happy to do home consults for people considering canvases. I come by your home with a few samples and my measuring tape and we work out the best display options together. I want to make sure people are 100% happy with the results.
And now on to the books!
the book pictured above is a sample album for a local floral shop I worked with. This is a typical coffee table book, with a special leather cover. I loved the way it came out. They are all professionally printed and bound. As a graphic designer by trade I love putting these together. I offer leather, photo, cloth and even metallic covers. These books can be as modern or classic as you like. And of course I let all my clients peek at the books before they go to print to make sure they are absolutely perfect.
This book is a sample newborn book I just adore. Mom and dad wanted to capture these early moments to remember for all time. I love the little wrinkles and toes of a newborn baby, a coffee table book or album is the perfect way to display these all in one place.
Both Canvases and Albums are great ways to showcase your photos for your home or to give as gifts. If you would like to see examples in person I am happy to offer in home consultations for my clients. Feel free to call or email me to set one up any time.
Lots more coming on the blog this week, I had a beautiful weekend full of weddings and engagement sessions. Check back to see more very soon!
