Decorating With Photographs Is Affordable And Personal

decorating with photographs
I am convinced that there is nothing more beautiful or inspiring to hang on the wall of your home than a photo of someone you love. Decorating with photographs of your children sends them a message:

“I see you. I find beauty in your existence. I love the silly moments when you’re just having fun. I love the serious moments when you’re focused and determined. I am proud of who you are and want to share my pride with everyone who enters our home.”

However, decorating with photos is usually so expensive that you only want to invest the money in hanging up picture-perfect professional photographs.

Decorating With PhotographsDecorating With Photographs: A Personal Touch

I love the incredible canvas prints and beautifully mounted photos that are easily worth the investment for a lifetime of beauty preserved on display. However, I also love the idea of hanging up photos of your daily life, taken candidly as the mood strikes you. Proudly display your messy toddler in the high chair, the photos of a first lost tooth, and the time your kid cut their own hair. These photos don’t have to be painstakingly prepared to be displayed, and I recently learned of a fun, affordable way to print large paper posters of some of your favorite casual photos, perfect for hanging in a kids room.
This website offers 16×20 inch poster prints for just $3 and 18×24 inch poster prints for just $4. The shipping is a $10 flat rate, so the more photos you print the cheaper the shipping becomes per poster. The paper posters are matte only, not glossy, so these won’t be prints you want to spend money framing. They’re just fun, big posters you can hang up in your kids room and not worry if something happens to them, because they were an affordable design choice that let you share some of your favorite moments with the world, even if they aren’t technically perfect photographs.

I love sharing tips like this on my blog whenever I come across them, to help you celebrate your family in all its silly, messy, fun day-to-day glory. However, I also want to help you capture the professional family photos you will cherish for life. I think there’s room on your walls for both.

As we continue our existence on this planet, I firmly believe that our passions and sense of purpose become increasingly distinct. While some individuals discover it early on, for most of us, it is a convoluted path with clarity only arriving after various twists and turns in our journey. Now, at the youthful age of 46, I have finally glimpsed what truly brings me satisfaction and delight - supporting women.⁠
⁠
To me, supporting women entails presenting mothers with the photographs I capture of them alongside their families, instantly reminding them of their beauty as nurturing figures and their astonishing presence as the centerpiece of their families.⁠
⁠
It also involves empowering women to shed all self-doubt and embody the strong yet tender qualities they bring to the world through their professional endeavors. It has become evident to me that by showcasing women in my portraits as their authentic, stunning selves, they possess the ability to conquer any obstacle. Women are creators - we possess the ability to evoke beauty simply through the touch of our loving awareness. ⁠
⁠
My passion lies in supporting women on their journey towards embracing this belief in themselves. 💖⁠

Look at this beautiful little lady! I have been photographing this little girl and her family for years and it's such an honor to get to capture families as they grow. From being invited into my clients' homes to capture their tender moments with their newborn babies or special holiday photos around their Christmas trees, it is never something I take lightly. I feel trusted, valued and I thank my lucky stars for this beautiful work that I do and the amazing clients I get to serve. ⁠
The birth of my brother's first child has prompted me to reminisce about the precious moments when my own children were newly born. Their delightful fragrance, petite and squishy features, and undeniable cuteness overwhelmed me. Despite my exhaustion and the countless tasks that demanded my attention, I found it impossible to sleep when they did. Instead, I would observe their every movement, cherishing each second of that extraordinary period. I made a conscious effort to etch every detail into my memory. And now, as I reflect upon those times, it feels as though they occurred just yesterday, despite my sons now being 5 and 9 years old. Having children truly transports one into a time-warp, with time appearing to both slow down and pass by in an instant, leaving you astonished by their rapid growth.⁠
I have discovered a clear passion within me not only for crafting genuine portraits that capture the true essence of the subject in the present moment, but also for using this skill to uplift women. My focus is specifically on the fearless women who are embarking on their own entrepreneurial journeys.⁠
⁠
In light of this, I am pleased to announce the addition of new services to my professional photography portfolio! One of these offerings is personalized branding photography catered to women-owned small businesses.⁠
⁠

⁠
If you share a passion for supporting women-owned businesses, please feel free to reach out to me via direct message. I am eager to have a conversation, collaborate, and potentially work together in some capacity!⁠
⁠
I firmly believe that by supporting and empowering women, we actively contribute to the healing, growth, and evolution of our world.⁠
This family is just too sweet! You know what they say: three is a party, and these three kiddos definitely made this session feel like one. 
I love the energy that sibling dynamics bring to a session. They are the best kind of ornery, and it makes for some adorable shots and even better smiles.
