Finding the right size of enlargements for your walls….

Saturday, October 26th, 2013

Do you ever wonder what size enlargements you should get  for your walls???  I do!  I grew up always thinking in what I call “school photo” terms.  “Do I get an 8×10 or a 5×7???  How many wallets should I get???!!!”  Oh man, I’m SO glad those days are over!   I wanted to get YOU thinking the same way.  Life’s too short to walk down your hallway every day and not notice the photos on your walls.  I can tell you honestly that EVERY DAY I notice the photos on my walls- and it’s not because I’m a photographer.  It’s because they are HUGE!!!!!!

Here’s a sample of what I’m talking about.  I want you to PINIT, flag it, bookmark it, whatever- just REMEMBER what I’m saying.  YOU CAN NEVER GO TOO BIG!  NEVER.  (Ok, Ok… so you might want to scratch the idea of making an entire wall into a poster of your baby… but seriously, that’s almost what I’m saying.


Here are some sample pics of the different sizes and what they look like on your wall:

Someone comes in to your home and in to this Nursery and do you know what the comments are like?


Photo #1 (the 8×10):  “Oh your Nursery is so cute!  I love that flag banner!”

Photo #2 (the 16×20): “Oh your Nursery is so cute!  I love that photo of your baby!  Oh and look at the cute banner you have below it!”

Photo #3 (collage): “HOLY MOLY I  LOOOOOVE YOUR PHOTOS!!!!  YOUR NURSERY IS LIKE A DREAM COME TRUE!  I’ve always wanted to make mine just like this.  How do you do it!  You are always so creative!”

Lol- ok, ok… I know it’s a bit much.  But you see my point right?  The days of the 8×10’s are OVER.  It’s time to make a statement with your Family photos!


Hope this helps when you are choosing what size to get.  General rule-of-thumb: when you think the thought, “Maybe that size is too big???” then it’s probably JUST RIGHT!!!  Go BIG.  Go BOLD!!!  JUST DO IT!

Newborn Twin Session- baby boy and baby girl {San Jose, Bay Area Twin Photography, Twin Photographer}

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

As I’ve said before, I hold a special place in my heart for twins- as I, myself, am one!  So when I met these two sweeties I was overjoyed to take their photos!  We twinnies all have a special bond with one another… and these two were super cooperative for their session!  I must mention that Mom was SO prepared for this session… I was incredibly impressed by this whole family!  What an honor it was to meet them 🙂

Client Appreciation Day- Free Halloween Mini Sessions {San Jose, Bay Area Halloween Photographer}

Sunday, October 20th, 2013

I can’t even tell you how much fun this was!  SO many people came to my Halloween session for the “Client Appreciation Day”.  I did this because I think Halloween is the coolest, my clients are fabulous, and I think that EVERY CHILD should get their photo taken for Halloween.  They are SO stinkin’ CUTE.  It was hard not to post every single child that came, but there were a TON- so here are a few that I edited tonight that I’ll share with you.  I’ll post more later!
