Hey dear clients, I see you! You have a gallery full of beautiful, professional, candid family photos, ready for download and then … what happens next? Do those images sit idly on your computer for a few weeks, months, a year? Our days get busy, time passes so quickly, and in the digital era, it’s hard to make printing your photos a priority. I get it, and I’m here to help. 🙂 I absolutely love when clients ask if I have any ideas for displaying family photos. Not only do I have access to the best professional printing labs, but I’ve filled a few walls of my own through the years. 😉 Documenting memories is one of my truest passions and I just love the way photos on our walls make my kids feel. Many nights before bedtime, my daughter, Gracey, looks up at her pictures and says, “Remember when …” It makes my heart so full. I thought I’d share a few pictures of her room to give you some small pieces of inspiration.
The six gold frames on her wall are from Target ~ I need to give myself a time limit every time I step through those amazing red doors. I love photo groupings in pretty, classic frames. The nice thing about frames is you can always switch out the prints. Many of the other frames pictured are ones I’ve collected through the years from places like Home Goods and Hobby Lobby. Home Goods has great prices on some really unique, smaller desk frames. Hobby Lobby has frequent sales on larger frames and mattes. And the little photo books my kids can’t get enough of are from Chatbooks ~ if you haven’t heard of this company, check them out. I couldn’t be happier with the service and customer care they provide! The photos I post to my personal Facebook account are automatically printed in these books and mailed directly to my home. There’s zero work involved on my part and my kids love paging through pictures from years past. I think we have 29 books so far! 🙂
The beautiful embroidery piece of artwork on the wall was made years ago by my husband’s grandmother. My mother-in-law had it in her house and I asked if I could have it for Gracey’s room. I had the backing redone at Michael’s. I love incorporating pieces that have special meaning ~ it makes Gracey feel a little extra love when she sees it hanging on her wall.
I’ll link to the main items in her room below ~ make sure to scroll all the way down for some “before” photos! 🙂
