Did you catch the previous blog post with some of my favorite images from Caitlin and Phil's sweet couple's portrait photography session at our Maryland photography studio? I had promised to post photos of their finished artwork, so voilà! A four piece canvas wall portrait love grouping for their family room. The largest wall portrait is 24x36 inches. We shipped the artwork via FedEX to their home in Sykesville, MD, and this is the e-mail I received from Caitlin:


"They arrived and I'm OBSESSED!! Thank you so much again and again!!"


Yay!!! This little e-mail made the day for our Maryland portrait photographers!


Celebrate your relationship with your own couple's portrait photography session.

How many truly amazing family portraits do you have? How many of them are locked away in an e-mail or social media account that you can't remember the password to? How many of them were lost in a hard drive crash? How many were lost when you lost your phone? How many of them have you printed out and displayed in your home on a wall or in a photo album? And with you being a busy mom or dad, likely behind the camera most of the time, how many of these family portraits actually include YOU?


In her article, "Are We Breeding a 'Lost Generation' Who Won't Have Photo Albums to Capture Their Lives?" Julia Llewellyn Smith mulls over the fact that while her 10-year old daughter delights in looking at family portraits of her mom as a child, when her daughter asks, "Where are the pictures of my Christmases?" Julia shamefully answers that she's unsure.


So don't let your children become part of the "lost generation." Instead, give your children a solid sense of their past with professional family photography in conjunction with heirloom wall art and custom, heirloom-quality photography albums.


Need ideas?  Check out the family photography album we custom-designed and printed for the M. family from their indoor-outdoor, in-home fall family pictures session in McLean, Virginia.  The M's chose a premium black leather cover for their 10x10 size, 22-page family photography album with an elegant art linen inside paper.

It's so very important that you not allow your stunningly beautiful boudoir photography to waste away on a computer hard drive, which is why, as an artistic boudoir photographer, I love sharing with you different ways to display and enjoy your revealing boudoir photography. Today, we're sharing our clients' favorite 6-piece love grouping for over the master bed, with a warning that this isn't for the shy!

This is a very popular boudoir photography layout for large walls like the one behind a master bed because it fills a horizontal wall space. Just imagine hanging only the central image. While that wall portrait alone isn't small, it would look very small by itself on a queen bed-length wall.

There are also some easy variations we can make of this boudoir photography grouping, such as:


(1) If the image you want to place in the 16x20 slot can't be cropped, you can also make the 16x20 a 16x24.


(2) If you prefer symmetry, substitute two 11x14s for the 16x20 or substitute a 16x20 for the two 11x14s, and make the two end pieces the same size as well.


(3) If you have a king-sized bed, you can easily add 10 inches in length to this revealing boudoir photography arrangement. Simply change the 20x30 to 24x36, the 16x20 to 16x24, and the 10x10 to 12x12. Then, space each boudoir photography piece two inches apart instead of 1 inch apart.

It's time to start planning fall family pictures, so it only seems fitting to share with you today what one of our 2017 fall family photography clients chose to do with their fall family photos.


Whenever we create fall family pictures... or any kind of family photography... we always create images of different family groupings - everyone together, the kids together, the kids individually, mom & daughter, mom & son, dad & daughter, dad & son, and of course, mom & dad as a couple if it's been a while. Having an entire collection of fall family photos of different groupings then lends perfectly to one or more family photography wall portrait clusters to grace the walls of your home.  (See more of the B's fall family pictures here.)


In the B's case, Mr. & Mrs. B. chose 6 of their favorite fall family pictures from their Manassas National Battlefield Park session in Northern Virginia for us to print on metal. The icing on the cake was the holiday cards we custom-designed for them to share the joy with friends & family scattered across the nation or world!
