Behind the Scenes: Hanging a Gallery Wall of Framed Portraits

Clients often come into the Maryland photography studio with a vision of how they would like to display their favorite images in their home. And others don't have any idea of how they'd like to display their images, and that's ok!  Design is part of our process. Some don't have a lot of wall space and prefer prints and albums to look through, some want a statement piece to admire in the nursery, and others envision a gallery wall of framed portraits lining the hall.  No matter what works best for you and your family, it is my job to help you figure it out and make it happen! Using my camera, I make sure to capture beautiful images of the special times in your life. But beyond that, it is my goal for each family that I photograph to truly love their portraits and take home a piece of art to display and enjoy daily. As I busy mom of little children I can relate to the 'craziness and chaos' of life.  Time is limited and those images you said you would get around to printing are still waiting, years later. That is why I make it a priority to work with each client to deliver a finished product for you and your children to enjoy right away. And if you order a gallery of frames, we will even hang it for you!

My personal favorite photographs of my children are the ones that I have printed and get to look at every day. Nothing beats actually holding, touching and looking at a printed image.

Want to see what I'm talking about?  Here are some behind the scenes images of a recent gallery wall that we created and installed for a client. We did the portrait taking and design but left the artwork hanging to the expert Meredith Forte, of Frame Avenue Design, for a smooth and easy installation.

This gallery wall of images is framed in a white natural barn wood. Their family of four is proudly displayed on the stairway, bringing memories and joy each and every time it is walked by.

Baby Luke's Studio Newborn Session

I was able to photograph both of this family's studio newborn sessions. First, with 2 year old big sister and now for their handsome baby boy. It is always so fun to watch as families grow! This adorable boy was off in dream land. He slept so soundly throughout the whole session. lukew-17

A Newborn Boy Photography Session {Rockville, MD}

We loved meeting this family for their newborn boy photography session at the studio to capture their little boy, Teddy.  Mom and Dad brought several personal things that we were able to incorporate into the images; a blanket, Dad's uniform, and the most adorable "teddy" bears!  This little guy was a very sleepy baby for his newborn boy photography session, which we always appreciate.  We used a few of their favorite images to design a beautiful, customized birth announcement for their family to share as well.  Enjoy some of our favorite images! military uniform newborn boycuddled newbornbaby boy with his teddy bearsbaby boy photography on gray blanketparent studio newborn photographyawake baby boy daniellesaraphotographysmashcake_0025
