If there is one thing that practically all homes have in common, no matter how big or small, no matter what the style or color scheme … it’s photographs. Especially at this stage of life that I, and most of my clients and friends are in, it’s photographs of our children. They are precious to us and they accumulate quickly! But how do we find a way to display them that’s elegant and uncluttered?
One of my favorite things hanging in my house is this picture my Dad captured of our family at La Jolla Cove in California, a place that is special to us for many reasons. We had tried for a more posed picture where we were all looking at the camera, but this one that my Dad took when we weren’t looking became my favorite. I found the frame pre-made and on sale at a framing shop and had them blow up the picture and print it out to fit the frame. I also asked them to tear the edges of the paper for an extra little detail that gives it a nice shadowed edge. Believe it or not, it wasn’t all that expensive and it is the first thing people comment on when they see our master bedroom.
Today I have asked photographer Meredith Price of Bloom Photography to share a few of her tips on creating interesting and beautiful groupings of photographs in your home.
Meredith is an old friend and I have admired the stunning pictures she has taken of her two daughters over the years. She has recently decided to follow her dream of starting her own business, capturing those special moments-in-time for others. Be sure to check out her blog to see some of her amazing photography, as well as her Etsy shop where she is currently selling a series of photographs that make me swoon!
Here’s Meredith ….
