I am so committed to turning client’s photographs into artwork for their homes. Whether it’s a simple classic print to put in a frame, stunning wall art, or a freestanding item to put a shelf or the kitchen counter, you will LOVE having the physical photographs in your home.
With so much focus on digital images and sharing online via social media, I fear that we’ve lost touch with the importance of having physical prints in our homes. While we grown ups are on our phones and can scroll our instagram feed, let’s face it, we all know we should cut back on that screen time… and our kids don’t have the same opportunity to scroll a curated set of photographs on a phone. My family loves having printed photographs around our home (and I’ve noted a few of our family favorites below). They spark conversations, keep memories alive, remind us of different stages of our lives, and are simply aesthetically pleasing to look at.
Below are many of the products I offer, with descriptions and sample photographs (Caveat: These photos are taken on my iPhone and color quality is meh and varying… One day I’ll do studio photos of products, but that keeps getting put behind taking and editing your photos!). I also love to do custom framed prints and albums and more. So if you have something in mind that you don’t see here, please ask!
I am happy to Zoom or FaceTime with you to look at the spaces in your home, measure, and design your custom artwork. Especially in the time of COVID, I’m often getting on the screen with client’s to show them options and see their spaces.
Standard prints on matte paper: Printed on premier archival matte paper. This deep matte, lusterless surface produces beautifully rich color.
Prints w/ Styrene Mount: Printed on a premier archival matte paper, then mounted on super smooth, 2mm thin plastic mounting that protects your photograph. The mounted photograph can be handled, is not affected by humidity or moisture, and is thin enough to frame.
These are one of my personal favorites. I print many of our own family photos on these, and display them on acrylic stands. I can easily swap out which one is sitting on the stand, and often do so seasonally. They are sturdy so my kids can pick them up and handle them, no damage done!
Fine Art Paper has a light, watercolor texture and delicate feel. Your image is printed on this matte paper with a slight texture. The result is a stunning Giclee print that will last for years to come. These are beautiful for framing! The image below from my lab best captures this stunning artwork surface.
The photograph is printed over a thin metal surface, giving a clean, contemporary look with beautifully enhanced color. An attached hanging cleat allows for easy mounting on the wall. A 1/2″ wooden cleat is placed in the back center, giving a floating illusion.
I LOVE these for wall art! I have several metal wall prints of our own family photographs hanging around my house. They are incredibly lightweight and easy to hang — you mount a wood cleat to the wall, just making sure it is level. There is a fitting wood cleat on the back of the metal wall print, and it simply sits on the one on the wall. I’m sure my explanation doesn’t do it justice, so photos below:
these iPhone photos were taken on a rainy day with interior lighting casting a yellow hue… but you get the idea!
Printed on lustre paper, coated with a satin laminate, then mounted and wrapped on a thin board that creates a crisp and striking piece of art for your wall. 1/2″ deep mount block enables simple hanging and an appearance of floating from the wall.
These are another super easy wall art option — a breeze to hang, lightweight, and simply beautiful. I love the clean lines and ease with which you can hang them anywhere (like a dress-up or dress-down LBD). You do need about an inch on all sides of the photograph for overhang onto the back of the print, so this is best for photographs that have background space around the subjects. I don’t have personal photos of them (my fault for giving them to clients before photographing them!!), but here are some from my lab:
Your photo is printed and mounted on a one-inch thick acrylic block, creating depth and richness in a clean, sharp display. You forgo the need to frame with these freestanding pieces, perfect if you like clean lines and an uncluttered look on your tabletop. These versatile displays can go anywhere — on a shelf with other framed prints, on your desk, in your kids’ bedrooms, even on your kitchen counter! Each block is finished with a durable matting on the back, which prevents scratching even when displayed in high traffic areas.
Think of a folio box as a ‘deconstructed album,’ perfect for both presentation and storage. Your photographs come in a beautiful crisp box wrapped in cotton-weave material (you can choose the color — light grey, black, or white). The hidden magnetic clasp keeps it closed. You get to customize the text on the box front.
The photographs are printed on triple thick photographic paper — think matte-board thickness — that displays beautifully and is sturdy for handling and display. They’re printed on an 8″x10″ Folio Print with a crisp white border (image size is 5″x7″). Each box includes 20 photographs — you pick your favorites. You also receive the full set of digital images with your box set.
An acrylic easel is stored inside your case. Your Folio Prints stand beautifully on it — no need for a frame, and rotate them as you desire! The easel packs flat, to hide inside your box when not in use.

Prints are mounted on a sustainably harvested solid 3/4″ bamboo panel. Or, choose a lightweight backing with white or black edges for a clean, simple look. They easily stand on a shelf or can be hung on a wall. It’s a simple, contemporary way to display unframed images. personal photos coming soon… for now, here are some printer images!
The options are seriously endless. I love designing:
