print your photos.

As a photographer, I have no excuse. I have four children, and I took over 7,000 personal photos last year alone. They were all still on my hard drive until this week. I finally made the time to get some printed.

But at least I did it right. I chose my favorite photo from last year (one I took of the kids at Tybee Island in Savannah), and had it printed as a canvas. As the biggest canvas that my pro photo lab offers. And it still wasn’t big enough for me, so I added another to make a diptych.

I knew i wanted them to cover one wall in our family room, so i wanted them big. The big canvas is a 24 x 36, and the smaller one a 24 x 16. I know that sounds huge, but when you get them on your wall, they’re never as big as you thought. So, when in doubt, go huge. Then go bigger than that. It will look fantastic, I promise.

So, please. Print your photos. Give your photographer a call and tell them you want that gorgeous shot of your kids, or you and your husband on your wedding day, in the biggest canvas you can afford. Your walls will thank you.

Here’s to photo art. And printing your memories. And walls that are no longer naked. Cheers!
