Frames & Albums
Here at Katie Shirk Photography I am so excited to be offering frames and albums for my clients! Many people assume it's the photographer's job to take the photos, deliver the digital files, and then they are done. But I want to offer more to those who want it!
I worked at a framing gallery for a couple years and learned how to frame and display art tastefully.
Trust my expertise, and allow me to put together a customized frame, a wall gallery, or an album from your session or project. Don't let your photos sit on a computer where your family can't enjoy them!
I am passionate about family photo albums! I have many in my home that I cherish, and my kids (and visitors) love looking through them.
I also know how overwhelming it can be to do them yourself, so allow me to do the hard work for you. Simply select your favorite images from the shoot and I will organize them beautifully into an album with your choice of cover material and color.
With eight different colors, and three different styles, there is sure to be an option you love. Each of the frames are thin, sleek, and traditional. I include mats in the frames because it adds interest and makes the photo pop.
If you prefer to DIY, that's totally fine! But if you're the type that would love some guidance curating and framing images for your home, I would love to help.
Choose from six different wall gallery collections to display your favorite family photos in your home. This is a great way to display a variety of family, individual, and candid and posed shots.
Choose from several styles, colors, and size combinations that would look great in any space.
Easy step by step process to ordering frames and albums
Before your session even begins, look through my product guide to get an idea of how would like to display your photos. Decide if you would prefer an album, a single frame, or a wall gallery. Consider where in your home you would like to hang your art.
After your session gallery has been delivered, you can select which photos you would like to include in an album by creating a favorites list. Or you can order frames directly from your gallery through my online store.
I will receive and self-fulfill your order. You will receive your products within 4-5 weeks of the session date.
Celebrate, check it off your list, and enjoy your new family heirlooms!
Where are the products made?
All prints and albums are ordered through a lab that's exclusive to professional photographers. Frames are made by hand in Portland, Oregon, and I have ensured that materials are high quality and long lasting.
How do I order frames or albums?
After your session, you can select the photos you would like to order directly from your digital download gallery. You can choose sizes, frame colors and styles, and add them to your cart.
How many pages are the albums?
The albums I put together are anywhere between 15-35 spreads. I have found this is a great length to sufficiently share the story of your session and include all the greats shots with plenty of layout variety.
Can i order prints without the frames?
Yes! I understand that some people already have frames and they just want to add the photos. Give me dimensions and I will order the best quality prints for your home.
Do the frames come with acrylic?
Yes, and I love it because it's lightweight, shatter resistant, and naturally has no tinting commonly seen in glass, with makes it perfect for displaying and protecting your images.
Are the prints mounted inside of the frames?
Prints are dry mounted on an acid-free lightweight board prior to framing to ensure your print won’t slip or buckle. If you want to replace the photos in your frames later, you will need to purchase new backing or dry mount a new print. Many framing galleries can do this for you, which I recommend.
