Are you paralyzed behind the other end of the computer screen wondering what to do with all of the beautiful images of your people? Guess what, the holidays are upon us whether we like it or not. Christmas is less than 13 weeks away (YIKES)! So what should you do with all of your images? You have picked the ones you love, now what? Digital images give us the instant gratification of seeing the fruits of the hell that may or may not have been prepping the family (or yourself) for the shoot. Social media is great for sharing images, but it’s not forever. An image is there for a moment and then it is gone. Buried in your news feed by some quiz or inspirational quote.
Personally, I feel that there is no better use of the images from your photo shoot than to put them together in a coffee table book that tells a story. I beautifully bound, sleek modern book that captures that moment in time in 2014 when you took the time out of your busy life to stop and freeze that moment with images that you will have forever. The best thing about creating a book is that it is an incredible gift for your whole family. When I print my books, I print one for myself, one for my parents and one for my father in law. My kids LOVE to sit on the couch with their friends and pour over the books I have made over the years. A beautiful book of your family or children from your shoot is an amazing gift for your spouse, the grand parents and most importantly for yourself.
I love to incorpoorate images in and around my home. In addition to coffee table books, I like to tuck cool and unique images in and around my book shelves. A mix of framed images with a canvas here and there. If you are struggling with what to do with your house, think beyond the MASSIVE wall canvas over the fire place. Look around your house and think about a few spots where you might want to layer a portrait with an object or some books. This is the fun part! No need to be paralyzed!
Best of all? I make house calls. Let’s work together to get those images off the cloud and into your home in a way that best suits you!
