How to use Custom Portraiture to Decorate Your Home

One of the benefits of hiring a professional photographer is that you get customized help in choosing products and images for your home, walls, or office space. I can use my years of experience to help you customize your portraits or a college of images. Over the time I’ve been a photographer, I have learned what images and sizes look best on certain walls in your home. I also help you get the highest quality products that are available on the market. You can choose from framed wall portraits, framed & matted wall portraits, framed canvas prints, and canvas gallery wraps.

Together, we will choose the portraits that work best together to tell your story and choose the best product and sizes that will look great in your room. I will show you different options when you send me images of your wall space. I will then custom design your gallery, and show you exactly what it would look like on your wall! Just follow the instructions below. I am looking forward to creating something you will cherish forever!

What to Wear for Senior Portraits

A question that I get a lot is, “What should I wear for senior pictures?” Bring a variety of clothing choices. Try to include clothes for different seasons. Don’t think that just because it’s summer that you can’t bring a great sweater. I LOVE layers and textures! Have fun with your outfits! Solid colors are a good choice. Remember that darker, earthy colors will show your face off the best. Bright colors will distract from you. I don’t mind patterns if they are subtle. Your outfits need to be your personal style. It is good to bring different styles of clothes so you have variety in your images. Such as a fun vintage look, a black dress or sun dress, classy dark sweater, neutral colored tops, an everyday look, a layered look, a funky or trendy outfit, an old prom dress to have fun in, your sport or hobby outfit, or a couture or sophisticated classic look. Having trouble choosing, text me some images of what you would like to bring and I can help make some decisions for you. (612-384-6328) Don’t forget I LOVE accessories too! Express your unique style with jewelry, scarves, hats, shoes, flowers, balloons, glitter & musical instruments. Be creative and give your photos that extra character. Girls… make sure you bring appropriate undergarments for each outfit. Strapless nude bras are your friend! Try on your outfits before your session so you know everything fits right. Guys… Please bring dark t-shirts to wear under dark shirts & sweaters and light t-shirts to wear under light shirts & sweaters. A contrasting undershirt does not look good and is distracting. Layers are great for you too. I love a blazer with jeans, or a nice sweater along with a casual t-shirt look or button down. The tops are more important than the lower half. Many more of the images are from the waist up.

Family Portrait Time! | Minnesota Family Portrait Photographer

Do you have a senior going off to college? Be sure to schedule a family portrait. Yes, we know you have about a million other things to do, but you will never regret capturing your family in this season before your child leaves the nest! You’ll want that last family portrait with just your children….after this, the next family images could be at their weddings! From that moment on, you’ll have new family members in your photos. A timeless photo of your family unit right now, as they are, is a beautiful and lasting memory.

As a mom myself, I can testify that I wish I had taken more professional portraits of my own family…I miss the days when my boys were young, now that they are grown! Below, I’ve included some examples of the kinds of family photos that Remember Me Photography has taken recently. Many of these were turned into paintings before framing or made into gallery-quality, wrapped canvas pieces. No matter the season or type (formal or casual) of image you are dreaming of, we can achieve it! Contact me today to book!

Georgia and John | Engagements | Minnesota Couples Photographer

This pretty bunch of bright blooms, and the pink, beautifully wooded area we found were just about perfect. They looked made for this sweet couple. I loved being the photographer for this couple: John and Georgia. These high school sweethearts are head over heels for each other, and have been together for six and a half years. Their wedding is coming up, at the American Swedish Institute, a stunning historical mansion and museum/cultural center.

For their session, we met up at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, which is simply stunning. It boasts over 1,100 acres of horticulture gardens, filled with annual and perennial blooms, and natural areas like woodlands and marshes. You could spend days in the lush greenery and florals that this land offers! For us, it was just the backdrop we were hoping for to celebrate this couple’s love story. Congratulations, Georgia and John! If you’re interested in an engagement session, please contact me here.
