Displaying Photography Products


One of the best things you can do with photos from your photography session is to print and display them.  A lot of our clients comment about the use of photos to capture moments of their children’s lives and forget that it is important to capture their moments as well.  We try to gently remind them that it is also capturing photos for their friends, families, and future generations to enjoy.  Our daughter, at the age of 4 years old, reminds us that she values our photos and videos. One of her favorite pastimes is to pull out photo books and look through them, including those that were created before she can remember.  Storytelling has long since played a part in passing information from one generation to the next and it is one of the best feeling to sit with someone and watch the magic as memories are relived through stories.  The highlight of our stories are photos that encourage details otherwise forgotten and give faces to loved ones.  Our munchkin now has a plethora of family stories she will tell to anyone who will sit and listen, sometimes people and sometimes stuffed animals.

So what are the benefits of having photography displayed in the home?  Hanging self portraits and family portraits around the home is found to have an important impact on it’s residents, especially kids.  A headshot or self portrait hung in a child’s room is found to increase their self-esteem.

Hanging a family portrait in the home in a spot that is visible daily reminds children of the people who care for them and reiterates their belonging in their family.  This is true for more than just children, it applies to everyone.


As I think back over my childhood I can remember the photos that were hung (and some still hang!) on the walls of our family home.  The memories captured in the hanging photos are easier for me to recall than the photos that have been tucked away in boxes all these years.

In the digital age we live in it is important to display photographs and not just glance at them on a screen.  This was one of the reasons Jubilant Studios chose to partner with a print lab and highly encourages our clients to utilize the printing services such as prints, canvases, metal prints, photobooks.  Items such as prints, canvases, metal prints, photo books, ornaments, and many other items are beautiful for display and also make great gifts. 

We have a program that can show you what photos will look like, dimension wise and aesthetically, on their walls before they are displayed.  We also offer to help hang items up for those that would like the help.  These little details help us to deliver exactly what our clients are envisioning in their homes so that they will enjoy their photos for years and years to come.

Seward Park Audubon Center Group Photos

Talk about a fun group of people.  We were so happy to work with the good people at Seattle's Seward Park Audubon Center for some photo needs.  They were looking to update their website with new photos of key personnel, as well as to get some recent images of their staff for some upcoming annual reports.

We worked with the group to get some formal as well as fun action photos.  Additionally, we needed to get some more formal corporate headshots and profile pictures, which we were able to work into the schedule as well.

All in all, this was a great experience, and it was such a great time working with these folks.

Senior Portrait Time!!

It is the time of year when high school students are preparing to pick out a picture for the yearbook and those graduation announcements.  Here are some tips for Senior portraits that might help, including choosing a comfortable outfit and where to have your photo shoot.

When planning for your senior portrait shoot, think of the clothes, accessories, and hairstyles that represent who you are as you prepare to graduate high school.  Bright, beautiful colors paired with jeans or basic outfits can photograph just as beautifully as dresses and suits. If you play a sport, instrument or have a hobby that would provide a item you would like to incorporated within a photo don't be afraid to mention this to your photographer.  These items are useful in highlighting your interests.  By checking with your photographer you will be giving them this input ahead of time it allows a photographer to come up with creative ideas for your photos.

A great photo shoot location can make a senior portrait memorable and also speak to your personality and memories created throughout your schooling. But this isn't always necessary, as a professional photographer with the right lighting can turn an otherwise seemingly ordinary natural structure, car, or location into an extraordinary photo of you, the main reason for this whole experience..
