I wanted to share some images I quickly captured of a recent order to leave the studio. You might remember this session recently blogged with an adorable family of 6, well here are some of the items I created for my client Joanne.
First up is the exquisite handcrafted Keepsake Box with 15 matted 8×10 images. What I love about this product is that it comes ready for framing, each image is already matted with a elegant V groove detail outlining the photographs. The matts are perfectly sized to slip into a store bought frame of your choice or ready to be sent off for custom framing. Some clients have created beautiful gallery walls with each photograph framed identically to make a statement in their homes, others rotate the matted prints throughout the house swapping images out of the frames as the seasons change while safely storing the remaining images in the box. The clam shell box can be customised with an unlimited number of designs and is perfect for storing photos in, or for using to house special mementoes and milestones. It’s such a flexible product.
The second product Joanne ordered was a lay flat fully customised press-printed coffee table album. All our albums are manufactured by companies that only deal with professional photographers, that way we can be guaranteed that our products are of the highest professional quality. We design albums that are classic, clean and uncluttered to ensure they don’t date like a 1990′s glamour portrait! The album covers come in a range of colours and album materials and there is also the option of a custom designed photograph cover which always looks amazing.
In a world of digital products and Facebook photo sharing it is reassuring to me that my clients are still savvy enough to invest in portrait products that can be felt, held and admired without an internet connection. I do worry that too many people rely solely on digital media which may not even be readable in 10 years time. Albums, prints and products ensure that my clients will be able to enjoy their family images forever and will have the benefit of handing these priceless items down to future generations.
