This photo project was a labour of love♡.
That's how many and how long I have been photographing @Bianca.Silcock and her beautiful family. So when she asked me to create a photo wall gallery, a visual lovestory, select, print and frame 34 photographs from the last 6 years in size 400x500mm. I felt super blessed and excited for this special gallery of love♡
Call me old-fashioned but there is nothing quite like a printed photo in a lovely frame! #PrintYourPhotos #FrameYourPhotos
Bianca gave me creative freedom to choose the 34 photographs. So this is what I learnt doing this project. Start by writing down the types of photos you want as part of your photo gallery.
- Portrait of each child current age.
- Portrait of each child as a baby.
- Portrait of dad & mom together.
- Portrait of family posed
- Portrait of family artistic/lifestyle.
- All children together.
- Dad with children.
- Mom with children.
- Maternity family photo for each child.
- Mom by herself beautiful portrait. (every woman should have one of these)
- Dad by himself.
- A combination of posed AND artistic/lifestyle/informal/documentary type photos
- A combination of colour AND black and white photos. .
- If you are starting at the very beginning, don't forget to add your favourite wedding photos. It's important for children to see their parents wedding photos on the wall, it lays the foundation of family, unity and love. A beautiful reminder of where it all began♡
By writing down your gallery photo list first, it will make it much easier for you when choosing and sifting through years and years of photographs. This way you will know exactly what to look for when searching through your digital photos. We actually started out with 30 photos but soon realised we would need 4 more to balance out the landscape and portrait orientation look and feel.
