One of my favourite things is when I have clients that come up with incredibly unique framing projects for their photographs. My clients come up with some of the greatest ideas, and I am going to share a few of these with you today. Unique framing projects are great ways to frame your gorgeous family portraits and have something no one else does. Let us take a quick look at three different ideas that can work for you.
1. Old Windows Make Gorgeous Unique Framing Projects
One of my clients had some gorgeous old style windows from a house they were renovating. These were the old style square windows complete with stunning stained glass. The windows each had five openings, and we worked to get photographs of the family that would fit perfectly. The first set of photos was taken around a gigantic old tree, adding such a unique flair to the portraits. For the next set of photos, we did a session at the beach and added those portraits into the next window. Since they were renovating, they had several windows like this. These turned out stunning with that stainedglass surrounding the portraits and added a touch that no one else had.
2. Find Interesting Antiques While Out Shopping
Antique stores offer incredible frames from old photograph frames to mirror frames. These can make gorgeous sets for your family portraits, especially if you plan on adding them to your old photograph collection. A client of mine had a newborn session done and decided also to have a family reunion photo session. Their parents came in for the photographs, and they were around 80 to 90 years old. Incredible! My clients asked for me to take the photos of the older couples so they could add the portraits to some stunning antique frames the family owned. I helped them choose the perfect clothes and took the photographs to look like an old portrait. This looked gorgeous in the frame and with the series of older photographs this family had. Such a priceless experience!
3. Glass Squares Are Perfect For A Modern Look
While I have not had a client that has used this technique yet, I know that modern styling is popular with many families.Glass squares provide stunning, unique, and modern looking frames. Some people have used two glass squares to place a picture inside and hold it firmly in place, then added mounting brackets to place the portraits on the wall. This makes a trendy modern look that is easy to manage.
I love working with unique frames and enjoy planning photos that will look perfect in them. All you will need to do is inform me of your project, and I can help you get the best photographs for your unique framing project. If you cannot think of any ideas, I will gladly provide any assistance. Contact me today to set up a session, and we can discuss wonderful framing projects to go along with your portraits!
