Photo Box for images
Do you miss actually handling prints? Remember when you were younger and you'd find an old shoe box of prints from your parents or grandparents and spread them out all over the floor and reminisce? Well I miss that....my Mom always has/had a drawer of pictures that she was "going to put in the album":) Agh, the ever allusive album of family memories. I think that's a leading factor to the trend of albums whether it's for a wedding, bar mitzvah, family portrait, or any "event" that you gather for.
Recently I started evaluating the products my clients buy from their shoots vs. what they say that want. Most all of my portrait clients say "oh I just don't want to let any of them go" but realistically you don't need a 24x36 gallery wrap of every image - hey I wouldn't stop you but that's a bit too much. So I've started showing clients Photo Boxes (see attached sample of my work):
To me this is the perfect solution - you get the custom cover and "First Look" from your session that I design for you. In my sample it's examples of my work and a description of my photography. Then inside you get 4x6 (or larger depending on what size Photo Box) prints of your session. And honestly, it's so fun to look at the prints one by one, re arrange the order they are in or spread them out and see the gallery of work in front of you.
By no means am I taking away from the gallery wraps, collages, larger prints, etc that I have on my own walls but this is a great way to preserve your photographs without making the time to put together that "Album" that my Mom is always talking about.
Let me know what you think about this.....
