People spend a lot of time planning their family, engagement or newborn photoshoots, but not everyone thinks about what they’re going to do with the photos afterward.
If you’ve just received the images from your professional photo session, you’re probably wondering what you should do with them.
First things first, don’t make the mistake of storing your photos on a digital device and never printing them. Too many people have digital copies of photos and never actually enjoy their memories.
You chose to work with a professional photographer for a reason so take the time to decide how you want to preserve and display your images for all to see.
Top photo preservation and display options
Below are just some of the ways that you can not only display your photos but preserve them too:
Create a custom album
There’s just something about being able to flip through an album that contains your favorite memories.
Today, there are so many great album styles and layouts to choose from that you can truly create an album that speaks to your unique style. Custom albums that have been laid out and printed by a professional look great on a coffee table and will preserve your memories at the same time.
Since the photos are printed on the album pages, there’s also no need to worry about photos falling out or getting lost.
Select various frames
Not only are frames an ideal way to preserve your favorite images but they’re perfect for decorating your home too.
While photo walls have become a popular trend, you can still design a photo wall that’s unique and that fits in with the rest of your home’s décor. Your photographer will also be more than happy to help you select both the frames and the photos for the walls in your house and may even be able to give you a few creative ideas that you may not have considered.
Varying the size and style of the frames is one way to add a creative touch to your home.
Change it up with canvas
Instead of going the more traditional route of albums and frames, why not print your photos on canvas instead?
When printed professionally, canvas can be a unique and beautiful way to display the photos from your professional photography session. Use different canvas sizes to add movement and variation to the walls in your home.
Speak to your photographer about the canvas print options that they offer and which photos would be best suited to this type of display.
Get creative with scrapbooks
If you’re a big fan of printing your photos and you have a creative streak, a scrapbook is a fun way to display and preserve your photos.
If you do decide to go this route, be careful to choose the right type of paper, accessories, and glue as acidic glue can end up damaging your photos in the long run. Be sure to stay away from permanent adhesives if you think you may want to remove certain photos later on.
With so many creative ways to display your photos, there’s really no reason why you shouldn’t be printing them.
