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~
From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.
I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
