Years ago I stopped giving photos to my husband for his Father’s Day gift. I know he appreciates the pictures I capture of our girls but the truth is, it’s me that wants one good reason to frame a recent shot of my kids. I learned to stop waiting for Father’s Day to get those timeless moments framed and just did it. For myself. For our family. That’s not to say I don’t make my husband photo cards for every occasion because you know I do! But, that’s another story.
When this Father’s Day approached however, there was a project I had been wanting to do with our Fair Photo booth archives. When I got the One Cent Sale email from Aaron Brothers a few days before Father’s Day I jumped at the chance. It is my most favorite sale of the year I must admit.
Above are the final results; two of the four years of Photo booth fun, scanned, enlarged a bit, matted in museum board mattes and framed in a simple black frame. A treasured Clark family series of playful photo booth portraits. I can’t wait to hang them up! And yes, my husband loves them.
Sometimes a project will inspire you, sometimes it’s the photo itself, or a holiday or a frame sale that does it. Other time you find a fantastic frame and then search for the perfect photo to go in it.
Case in point the new Photoshop Photo Framefrom our friends at PhotoJojo. This is one of those frames that anyone who has a passion for photography in the digital age will love. Don’t you agree?
