I shot some product photos recently and didn’t expect to want to frame some of them. 🤗
Question: Do you use framed photos as seasonal decor? Meaning that you, for example, frame some Christmas photos and then pack ’em away–frames and all–with the rest of the holiday stuff when the season ends?
I’m not sure why this is only dawning on me now! My photos are my most prized possessions, yet I seriously think I have fewer than five framed in our home. They were all taken pre-Lucy, too.
Okay. I just re-read that last paragraph and I sound like an idiot. I’m sure lots of people use frames as seasonal decor. 😆
But for those of us who never print photos (yet want to), here’s an idea:
What if we printed and framed one photo for every holiday every year? (In cheapo frames, of course.) And then scattered them around the house when decorating?
In 10 years, we’d be swimming in decor that’s truly meaningful for our families. They’d serve as trips down memory lane; postcards from simpler times, as they say. ;) I mean, I tear up just thinking of High School or College Emma and Lucy (😉) looking at these photos.
It wouldn’t even cost that much! Prints are next to nothing–try Adorama or mpix, my faves!–and the frames? I’ve found so many awesome ones for under $5 at off-price department stores.
Okay, I’m in. Are you? (Also, can we tell that I’m writing this post at midnight on a Tuesday? I’m punchy.)
Anyway, I took these photos for Burlington, a longtime blog partner, to help get the word out on Instagram that stores are reopening with safety measures in place. Most of the pics were simply fun to take, but the two that are getting framed? The one of Emma and Noodle in the basket, and the one of Lucy and Emma in the basket. In cute fall-themed frames that’ll come out around September and get packed away in early December.
I’m excited! Okay. I should really log off before I lose all my readers.
Oh my gosh. Not even copy editing. Too tired.
