Living With Photography: 3 Simple, High Impact Displays

Living With Photography: 3 Simple, High Impact Displays

Because you more than create art (you live it), here are three weekend projects to invigorate your living space, to zhoozh up your studio, or to share with clients (coupled with studio sessions, naturally).

This arrangement of square (think Instagram) images creates a delicious lineup in a modern room, a hallway, or even a kids' area. Simply drop images into to a rounded edge border, or create a collage. 

Are you a free-style collector of images? This display is flexible, so change it up as often as your décor (or mood) dictates. You might need a handyman (or woman) to securely attach standard moldings from the lumber mill to the wall, but the extra effort is worth it. Ledge Love: We recommend using frames in a curated palette for the best results (here, earth tones and metal, all with simple white or linen mats). (image credit: habituallychic.blogspot.com)

Use Polaroids (below, left) left to form a heart-shape and attach photos with poster putty to the wall or affixed to a light foam core board for a dazzling display Cupid would approve of. Be Mine: For an easier solution, try our "70 Reasons to Love Me" (below, right). Design Aglow's action-based templates create speedy layouts for canvas, framed prints or even wallpaper clings!

Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping. My road to becoming a photographer isn't a very poetic or adventurous story: I was a painter and had always pursued the thought of going to school for fine art. I took an introduction to film photography class in my senior year of high school and just fell in love with the medium. I've pursued my own photography business ever since and am still shooting with film!

One thing we love about living in Portland is the strong emphasis on sustainability and a genuine concern for the environment. The natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest has obviously inspired locals to care and take action, to protect the lushness surrounding them. The name of the game here is conservation and preservation - with multiple trash/recycle/compost bin options in every restaurant and coffee shop, to chicken coops adorning backyards aplenty. We’re so pleased to see this positive trend hit the design and technology spheres, as hard copies become a thing of the past and the Cloud becomes the Internet’s new storage bin.

I’m Cheyenne, and I’m a body positive, self love boudoir photographer based in Philadelphia. I love my mama, my puppy girl Penny, my babe, and cheesesteaks. When I was 13, I picked up my first camera. Two years later I started a little business photographing families, babies, and a very tiny wedding! I continued to shoot through my time in art school and eventually decided to fully dive into creating a well rounded business for myself. I left college after my junior year and worked my butt off to build up my business.
