You spend some time researching photographers in your area, hopefully looking for someone who specializes in and understands working with animals, both in and out of studio. Settling on your photographer of choice, you set up a free, preliminary consult, ready your pet for his or her photo session, and set out to your scheduled appointment.
Your photographer spends time getting to know your pet, then goes about taking some fantastic photos, even though you have no idea how she/he did it because your pet was not necessarily always completely cooperative.
You are excited.
Then it hits you: what will you do with the photos?
Dress Up Your Wall
Photos were meant to be printed. Since the beginning of photography, and in the early days when everything was film oriented, we waited excitedly for our photos to be printed. But in this age of digital, many are looking for a "downloadable" option instead of a print, under the theory they will have their photo choices printed sometime in the future.
My theory is that half the time digital downloads aren't turned into anything that can be glanced at on a wall, at will, to relive a time, place, or memory of that moment.
This, my friends, is why I am not a "downloadable" photographer. I am in the print and wall art business. I want you to see your photos staring back at you on a daily basis.
Clean - Fresh - Modern - Rustic
Framing your print for wall display, is an easy option that can match any decor. Over the years, I have come to love a few select framing choices that have never disappointed. I am always thinking along the lines of clean, fresh, modern or rustic.
A pure white frame, for instance, can complement just about any room.
Did you know that you don't only have framing choices for traditional prints, but also for metal prints, canvas prints, fine art prints and other photographic products?
Framing Metal, Canvas and Fine Art Prints
Float frames are a great way to frame metal, canvas or fine art prints. A float frame creates an illusion of the print floating within the frame, by leaving a gap between the frame and the artwork. Float frames come in a number of choices--from metal to wood.
The float frames featured above all hold metal prints.
I use trusted lab sources to ensure the highest quality product in terms of frame choices, and because I have built relationships with my labs, I know that should a client not be completely satisfied with their framed pieces, my labs will step up to make it right.
Take a good look around at your walls. Do they hold wall art and photos of you, your family and pets that you love? If you answered "no," it may be time to set your sights on adding beautiful photo products that showcase meaningful memories. I can help you do just that.
Click Into the Circle
I am part of a weekly blogging group of professional pet photographers located all over the planet. To see what others have blogged about in this week's topic (Frames), start here with Toronto pet and family photographer, Terri Jankelow, as she explores creative ways to display framed photos from your pet and family photo session.
Then find the link at the end of each blog to click on to the next photographer, until you find yourself back here, and have completed the circle.
Have a great summer weekend! Make some great memories, then put them on your wall!
