More Eye Candy – Albums! | Virginia Baby Photographer

I have been designing lots of albums lately and having so much fun with it. It’s like Christmas morning when the final product arrives on my doorstep and I get to see the fruits of my labor.

This particular album showcases the entire first year of one of my Baby Planners and I had so much fun going back through all of the photos to design it. It’s amazing how much a baby changes in the first year and as a photographer I just adore capturing it! An album is the perfect way to showcase all of your photos from our session in a gorgeous keepsake that will be treasured for life.

This client chose a beautiful chocolate croc leather cover for their album. I love how rich it looks!

Awesome thick pages.

And a few photos of the inside spreads:

Modern yet timeless!

Product Spotlight – Gallery Wrapped Canvases!

I am going to start featuring products that I offer at least monthly here on the blog. These are one of my most popular products, gallery wrapped canvases! They come ready to hang on your wall and are truly beautiful works of art!

Here are some photos of a gorgeous new sample canvas I had made. My samples that I bring to client’s sessions get so beat up so it was time to get some new ones.

The hardware comes installed on the canvas so it’s ready to hang right on your wall.

The image wraps around the 1.5 inch stretcher bars so your image pops right off the wall.

And here you can see the beautiful canvas fine art texture.

You want one, don’t you?;-)

Go BIG! | Virginia Newborn Photographer

My good friend and fellow photographer Amy of Amy Ro Photography up in Rhode Island did an awesome post on wall prints, you can read it here. She did a fabulous job of showing you how different sizes look on the walls but I just wanted to touch on it as well.

My goal as a photographer is to have my art on your walls. I know it’s stressful when you sit down to order your prints but next time you, do think BIGGER. I used to think that an 8×10 was a wall photo but it most definitely is not. An 8×10 is a desk print and belongs there unless you are grouping it together with other various sizes. One of my clients has an awesome photo wall and after our last session I had to snap a photo of it:

What you see here is a beautiful 16×24 Gallery Wrapped Canvas in the center and around that you see an 11×14 framed (upper left in photo) as well as some 8×10′s and smaller framed. The smaller prints look nice here because they are grouped around the centerpiece of the wall which is the canvas. I love the mix and match look of this wall and the great thing is that they will add to it as their son grows up!

Another client of mine purchased an 11×14 Gallery Wrapped Canvas from each of our sessions for her son’s first year and made a nice modern display out of them:

I think this is an awesome way to display your baby’s first year since they change SO much!

Now here we have my house which is a work in progress. I decided to do 16×20 stand outs above the couch in my family room, right now it looks like this:
(okay the emphasis here is family room so excuse all of the toys and clutter)

That is 3 of my favorite photos of Carter from this past year. Here’s another view with a bonus shot of our dogs and more toys!

In the next couple weeks I’m going to add 3 more stand outs with newer photos including a rare family shot so it will look like this:

I’ll re-hang all of the photos and organize them differently but you get the idea. So it takes 6 16×20′s to really fill the wall and I could have even gone BIGGER.

And this is a horrible shot of my work space, that is 2 16×20′s and 4 11×14′s. I wanted a whole wall of black and white photos for my office and will be adding more soon.

71

You get the idea though, can you imagine how tiny an 8×10 would look? Bigger really IS better!

And a quick shot of my dogs, I don’t think I’ve shared photos of them in AGES. This is Sumo, he’s a half boxer and half bulldog (we think). He enjoys pestering me for food all day, barking at the UPS and Fed Ex guy, eating Carter’s toys, and going for long walks in the park.

Awesomeness | Virginia Baby Photographer

How awesome is this canvas wall?
untitled-2

I designed this for Mom after A’s 9 month session. These are 4 11×14 Gallery Wrapped Canvases from his newborn, 3 month, 6 month and 9 month photo sessions! We are going to do a larger canvas for the wall from his 1 year session. I think it looks awesome, very modern and fun!

Speaking of A, here are a few more shots. We met up today and finished up our session from last friday.

This one is from last week but I love it and decided to share it.

And outside on a beautiful fall day, I adore the little newsboy cap and his sweet grin.
