4 Ways to Use Your Fall Family Photos

Maybe you’ve booked your fall family photo session and you’re not sure what to do with the pictures when you get them back. Or maybe you haven’t booked your session yet because you’re unsure what to do with your photos and wondering if it will be worth it. One way or another, some of us all end up thinking the same thing about family photos-what do I do with them? And the best part, is there are A LOT of creative ways to use family photos! From decorating your home, giving them as gifts or sending them out as cards, we can make sure that you’re putting those beautiful family photos to work.

My new pricing starts Sept 1st and when you book a session with me, you receive a credit to my online shop where there are lots of different options for printing your photos. Here are my top 4 creative ways to use family photos:

Greeting Cards

You can create your holiday cards, birth announcements, senior announcements, etc. right from your gallery! There are a handful of different ways to design your card and you have access to all your session photos right there. I love having fewer steps in a process and making things hassle-free, don’t you?

You can get a multi-image pack of 24 individual matte prints from your session. I love this option as a gift, especially for grandparents. My parents love having tangible printed photos of the kids and the prints are also nice to send to relatives or grandparents that might live farther away and don’t get to visit as often.

Flatlay Albums and Hard Cover Books

I know that scrapbooks are a thing of the past, but it can be so nice to have a photo album to look through past photos. You can still have that option, they’re just coffee-table-beautiful now. If you decide on a lay-flat album, I will help you design it and make sure we pick the best photos for that style of book. The hardcover book is easy to design on your own and all of your gallery photos are already there.

Wall Art Options

Switch up your wall art with canvas prints, metal prints, and fine art prints. If you have an open space, invest in some bigger pieces for your walls. Right now, I love to shake things up every few months or so by rotating through photos. I place a lot of my frames on shelves so that they’re easy to move around and switch photos in and out of. It’s a nice way to freshen up our living space without a trip to Target or Hobby Lobby. Here are my tips for hanging photos!
