i love

i love when clients share their photo displays with me -- displays of photographs that i have taken.  makes my heart so, so happy. francesca shared these with me last week [all photographs from our session in chicago, this past october]...

and em sent this to me yesterday, sharing that it was her most favorite wall in her house.  the wall that makes her smile every time she walks by.  the boots and happy trash can photographs are enlargements made from polaroids i took, while in north and south carolina. the i love you so much print is from another artist.

seeing these has me longing to get my polaroid camera out this week.  i think i'll play a bit.

and you can see some of the photographs on the walls of my home, featured here.  i hope you are displaying  your family's photographs proudly.  if not, you should!

photo wall gallery inspiration

i loved this recent post on the creative mama blog, sharing thoughts and ideas on photography wall displays.  whether your wall space is large or small, i think many of these display ideas can be applied (some of them on a smaller scale). moving to a new house every two-to-three years, i go through the wall display decision making process quite often. i'm now excited to take some of these inspirational ideas with me to our tampa house, this july.

also, i wanted to share this not-so-formal wall display idea, from my own house.  we purchased these chalk- and pin-boards years ago from pottery barn kids and they have moved with us to three different houses now.

i just found this tacktile message board and this takboard from CB2, which would also work really well for this type of wall display.

have another photograph display inspiration?  please share, i'd love to hear about it.
