Imagine walking past that big blank empty wall in your living room and not feeling paralyzed by indecision on what to hang there. Imagine instead you are looking at beautiful photos of your spouse, your children, your family! Of course you want that but I totally get the overwhelm of how to plan it out, what size photos, where to get the right frames and how to choose the right photos. That is where I come in complete with pink cape to save the day superhero style! I can guide you easily to make all the decisions so you get to enjoy your beautiful Gallery Wall Frames instead of a blank space.
Before our session I always like to get to know my clients home decor style. I typically ask about it in my getting to know you questionnaire and it really helps with planning your gallery walls. If you love a more minimalistic style then I might recommend black and white images from your session. If you trend more towards boho I can show you examples that are less formal and instead more organic with their layout.
Measure the Space
Before your session with me walk over to that blank wall and tape up a sheet of printer paper. Then step back and take a horizontal photo with your phone showing me the entire wall. You can do this for as many walls as you want! Send the photos over to me via email and pat yourself on the back because the hard part is over.
Choose Your Fav Photos
Once your gallery is ready go through and mark your favorites so I know which ones you love the most. I can pull from those when creating the mockups for your gallery wall frames. I recommend favoriting at least 10 images and of course you can favorite more if you like!
Pick a Gallery Wall Frame Style
I have several frame styles to choose from and typically once we get to this point I’ve got a good idea of what will fit with your décor and style. I’ll make suggestions on what frame I think would look best for each gallery wall. We can even mix frames if you are going for a more organic collected over time look. Typically though I recommend sticking with one frame style if we are going with a structured layout.
Say Yes to Your Gallery Wall Frames
Now comes the fun part where you get to see what options there are and exactly how they will look on your wall! We can tweak sizes and spacing once you pick a layout you love and of course we can adjust which photos go in which frame. The nice part is we can do all of this virtually without putting any holes in your wall!
Gallery Wall Frame Details
Your gallery wall images will be printed on gorgeous Fine Art paper meant to last for generations. You can trust that the colors will match your digital files. Have you ever printed a photo at Walgreens and noticed that the colors are exactly right? That is because Walgreens is a drugstore not a photo lab ;)! The labs I use are professional labs that keep their equipment calibrated to provide you with accurate printing.
I offer several styles of frames meant to fit any home decor style. From modern sleek white frames to barnwood to gold or silver embellished gallery wall frames.
When your frames arrive the prints are already inside them and your gallery wall frames are ready to hang on your wall. You can install them yourself or if you prefer I’m happy to hang them for you to ensure they are perfect! Either way I can’t wait to see your beautiful photos on your walls!
