This project has been on my ‘ol “to do” list for a loooong time now. Over and over I find that clients choose lifestyle photography, spend the extra money, have a super fun experience, loooooove the results, and then… don’t know what to do with the photos. They get stuck in how, where and what size to display them. Or they get overwhelmed in ordering, with dreams of fabulous decor, but end up with a cart full of 4×6’s that they put into a box somewhere. For the same amount of money, they could have purchased one of these galleries and had their photos out to enjoy every single day. When you spend the time, energy, and money on professional lifestyle photography, by all means, show it off!
Here’s (the beginning) of NMD’s solution: the Inspiration Guide for Portraits.
From now on, this will be available as an electronic document on this blog under “Details” and “Portrait Displays” and in book form in my studio. I am also going to be incorporating these galleries into my ordering sessions, and am happy to help with the “what to do with the photos” question until it is answered! You can even send me a digital photo of your space that you’d like to decorate, and I’ll generate some ideas for you. AND, I’d loooooove if you loyal clients would send me some pics of what you have already done with your prints so that I can share these ideas with other clients.
So here they are, the first 10 galleries!
Please note that yes, these are in correct proportion to (average sized!) furniture. These show a white box to represent the frame; if you order the gallery in canvas, no framing is needed. Just a hammer and a nail!
