eye-catching frame collections that sell themselves

Envisioning a wall gallery can be a daunting task, especially in your own home. Your trouble is over...the Design Aglow Frame Shop has done the work for you!

Julie of Photo Jewels Photography shares, "My goal was to update my existing wall display above my piano in my own home. Many clients walk by this display as they enter my home studio, and so I feel it's important for it to be striking and eye-catching. It also helps them to visualize ways to decorate with art from their session. Previously, this wall showcased float wraps from one of my labs. It was 3 years old & only had 4 of our 5 family members in the photos! It was time for an update. I had considered doing canvas, but then wanted more flexibility. I knew I would want to update this same wall again in a few years, as my boys grew. So, that brought me to framing and looking for a layout that would fit my space, style and budget. Lo & behold, Design Aglow opened its Frame Shop just in time, and offered the layout I was looking for! I used the Grab n Go Collection 4 in Woodworks Espresso.

I love these frames because they are simple and keep the focus on the images. The predetermined collection made it easy for me to visualize how the layout would look in my space and decide which images to use. The style of frame is clean and blends in well with the decor of my home. I feel this look would work well in my clients' homes as well. The frames arrived packaged well, damage free, and were easy to assemble. I loved the factory paper prints and quotes that were included when I opened the box! They were so pretty, I almost wanted to keep them! I ordered the frames with mats and while I am using them with my current display, I like the idea that I can remove them down the road, if I'd prefer for my print to fill up the entire frame. Finally, it was definitely a plus that I was able to get a 15% discount on my prints from ProPDI with my purchase - which is the only lab that matches my monitor perfectly! Happy camper! Clients, family and friends - whomever is in my home - always comment on this wall display. They want to know how they can get something like this, too! I should also give credit to my friend Tammy Williams at Clarity Photography for the gorgeous images!"

Thanks for sharing your beautiful display, Julie! Enjoy your $75 shopping spree on us~

The iPhone camera is an incredibly powerful tool. After learning a few basics, you can start practicing your own skills with what I like to call a “creative exercise régime.” First of all, l always hold my phone horizontally with two hands. I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
