Product Showcase : Better Than Digitals : Northern VA Senior Portrait Photographer

Remember Olivia from last week’s post? The high school senior who I had the awesome privilege of photographing in Historic Warrenton, VA? Well, this post is going to feature some of the products Olivia and her family invested in. The two I’m going to showcase here happen to be two of my all time favorite products and hopefully by the end of this post, you’ll see why they are so special!

First up, we have an item from my boutique wall art collection called an Acrylic Print! I love these things! You have to see one in person to know what I mean, but the actual image is infused on a sheet of acrylic using super high quality dies. The image itself is tact sharp and luminescent, and since they are printed on acrylic, they are scratch resistant and water resistant! Acrylic Prints float from the wall too, which gives it a very cool illusion! In the example below, Olivia and her family decided to get their Acrylic Print framed, which is a perfect way to finish off any wall art piece. So now, the acrylic photo of Olivia appears to be floating in her black frame! Super cool, right? As a mom myself, I would love seeing an image like this of my child every time I walk into the living room 🙂

Next up, we have the Keepsake Image Box. I’ve mentioned this product a few times before, like here, simply because it is by far the most popular product and with good reason! Keepsake Image Boxes are a cross between wall art and an album….I like to call it the modern day album. As you can see below, your favorite images are mounted on styrene, which makes the way more durable than the flimsy paper photos. They are then stacked in a Keepsake leather or linen box, which can be customized to fit the look and feel of your home and your personal aesthetics. The images themselves can safely stay in the box and flipped through, like an album, or each individual image can be taken out and displayed in your home. The image itself is still thin enough to be framed and hung, but sturdy enough to be shown of on an easel! This is one of my more versatile products so if you have a hard time making up your mind (or will change your mind later), these are the perfect way to display your photos!

I personally love helping my photography clients, not just capture beautiful photos, but taking those photos a step further from just being “digitals” and helping them decorate their home with Acrylic Wall Art, Keepsake Image Boxes and so much more!
