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!
