I really want to talk about why printing your photographs is important – in this digital era of swiping and forgetting the photos you saw just yesterday, print is not always considered. A printed photograph engages the senses and feels more, you hold it carefully or you hang it on a wall and it means more, and the ones that are printed, are the ones you’re going to remember and become part of your legacy. To have family photos hanging on a wall or in an album, gives kids a tangible testament of family to look back on, and builds their self esteem. Digital files are great so you can have them ALL and share on social media etc., but they can get lost, and they can degrade or become corrupt over time, and can be archived solely on an outdated format, so that’s why I’m a “hybrid” photographer that encourages both digital and print. It so great to have those special photos to walk by everyday and have conversations about, or flip through an album together at bedtime, instead of having to show your kids photos on a computer screen. I speak a lot to families, but it really brings everyday joy and reminders of love into couples lives too.
Below are all the beautifully printed products that can help your images last generations and bring art, and love, into your everyday life.
Bring design with heart to your walls with archival quality framed art that becomes heirloom pieces for generations. Comes with frame and archival mat, retouched print, acrylic facing with UV protection, dust paper, and hardware ready to hang. Frame a single image to give a focal point to a room, or a grouping to make an impactful impression with thoughtful design. I consult you and help you choose sizes, images, and frames, to fit your space.
Canvases are great for those that love to add texture and warmth to a room and present your family photographs as works of art. Can be unframed, or framed for a more refined look.
A great option for those who don’t have a lot of wall space. All images are retouched with a custom layout. I pre-design this album for you to take the pain out of choosing, and we can swap images if needed. After choosing wall art, there are always more photos than there is wall space. A beautifully crafted album is the perfect way to preserve every single photo you love from our shoot.
This storybook album has full page album spreads printed on archival paper and mounted on thick white lay-flat mat board. Album cover options include a wide variety of quality leather, silk, vintage leathers, faux leather, linen, and fabric options with optional embossing available. A durable album meant to last generations.
A quote from one of my wedding clients about their Heirloom Album: “The quality of the album is amazing. It almost feels sacred. Kelly did a great job of portraying the narrative of the day within the album, so it felt like we were reliving the wedding as we looked through it. Having the photos is one thing; having an album is a completely different level.” – Elise & Kyle
Great for a family session, engagement session, boudoir session, parent, or grandparent album. Thinner but durable paged album with seamless panoramic layouts. Many different linen, vegan leather, fabric, and velvet cover options. Can also be designed with white space to be used as a guest book.
A quote from one of my family clients about their coffeetable album: “We did an album of our daughter’s first year and it turned out amazingly well! Super high quality and just the right size to have on the coffee table without it taking up all the space. Our whole family loves it – especially our daughter!” – The Larson Family

Make sure your photos are printed to perfection with retouched prints. Retouching includes: Removing blemishes, softening/removing unflattering lines, controlling flyways, lightening/darkening areas to give the most impact, evening out skin tones, a more refined color correction/b&w adjustment, and removing distracting elements. And then I promise, prints made through my professional lab are much better than what can be commonly found on the consumer-level. When you have a print that lives on a wall for 30 years, it’s nice to have it polished up and well printed. All my products above will be retouched with an exception of the print box.
I believe investing into photography and putting art into your lives will gain value over time. The more life changes, the more we forget, and we’ll look back and love that we have them more and more as the years go on.
