After the session, and some work by your photographer, you will get to review those images. At that point, you are hopefully thinking "Gosh! I never knew I looked so good!" or "I never thought my dog could sit still that long to get such a great photo!"
While you also should be thinking about what exactly you are going to do with the images you love, once you decide on which ones you want to pursue, in my experience, most clients really don't think that far ahead.
My job, then, is to not just be your photographer, but to be your tester. Yes, I am your guinea pig. I have diligently searched the far corners of the world (well, okay, the print labs) for high quality products that will take those beautiful images and place them artfully on your walls or your desks.
There is A LOT (A LOT!!!!!!!!) of product out there.
I do have my favorites. F.A.V.O.R.I.T.E.S. <----- (See the plural "s" and know I cannot narrow this down to one product.) I love ART BLOCKS, and ACRYLICS, and THIN WRAPS. And, there's more.
But, I can also look at an image and tell you what it might work best with that fits into your specific budget.
So, this blog was very hard for me to write, with the theme of "FAVORITE PRODUCT."
With the holidays fast approaching let me say that I absolutely love, adore, and can't get enough of METAL ORNAMENTS!!!!!!! I mean, you can seriously festoon your entire tree with memories from your year.
I am gearing up right now to do holiday card and Christmas session photos, and there is nothing I love more than to place an ornament order! I have a number of ornaments in the studio to choose from as well.
My supplier is AWESOME! I have tested out a number of ornament print labs, and I've found you the best! You can feel fully confident that your image will look as great in your ornament, as it did when you viewed it in the studio.
To read more about favorite products (if you see any you like, ask me if I can get them as well), head to the blog circle, starting with Susannah Maynard of Pet Love Photography, photographing Cincinnati area dogs for “Tails of Cincinnati” a book project for charity.
Have a great weekend!
