Every once in awhile, as I’m shooting, I realize I’ve just captured an image that will become one of my favorites ever. As soon as I clicked the shutter on this one, I could feel it – their happy smiles, pretty flower crowns, and the naturally filtered sunlight all just came together to make a moment that I am so glad to have caught on camera. Can’t wait to share more from this fun family session.
Okay, so I’m branching out from my typical posts here a little to share something really fun with you (and the type of post you might expect to see more of in the near future – I’ll keep you posted on that!) ;).
As a photographer, I love hanging lots of family photos and creating gallery walls – but I always try to mix in some cool art and travel photography to mix it up a little. When the folks at Minted asked me to check out their art prints, it came at the perfect time – I’m right in the middle of a decor refresh at home and I’ve been planning to add something new to the mix. – and they seriously have so much great art to choose from! I also love that you can have them frame it in one of their chic frame styles… so simple.
My plan is to mix a couple of the prints pictured above with some of our family vacation photos from recent trips to California and Hawaii (because obviously we Pacific Northwesters need a little daily reminder that we’ll be warm again one day) and a couple of our official family photos as well. So, what do you guys think? Any favorites? I’ll be sure to share when I get the new gallery wall update completed!
Oh, and for you brides out there, I have to share Minted’s Save the Dates… if you haven’t seen them already, you absolutely must. They have such a great variety of cards, from whimsical to modern – and I bet you won’t be surprised to see that this little nautical number is one of my faves! ;)
