Featured Product : Northern VA Senior Portrait Photographer

Remember a few weeks ago when I shared the lovely Ryan’s senior photos taken in Centreville, VA? Well if not, you can find her gorgeous photos here. Now the point of this blog post is to feature one of the most popular products for high school senior photography! Sure it’s great having the digital photos of your senior session, and although those are including in my print collections, what is even more important than digitals? Prints! Something tangible. Something you can actually hold in your hands and display in your home. That’s what brings the art of photography to completion.

So today I would like to show you one of Ryan’s chosen products: a Keepsake Image Box! These have been a hit with my high school seniors and their moms and with good reason! A Keepsake Image Box is a collection of your favorite photos, all mounted on styrene to make them super durable and are delivered in a beautiful fabric or leather box for safe keeping! I like to term these as the “modern day album.” The images can be kept in the box and flipped through whenever you like or you can take a few out frame them for the wall, lay them in an easel or give them to family! This product is very versatile meaning you have multiple ways of showing it off!

Keepsake Image Boxes are just one of the many ways to you can display your photographs. If you would like to learn more about them, or about my boutique wall art collections, message me here and I would be happy to share with you all the possibilities!
