I have never been a fan of the framed photograph. Yes I know its nice to display our favourite people and events but for me it just doesn't work. When you have your first baby you take so many pictures, people buy you frames and you feel like you have to use them and show the world how proud you are! Well 14 years ago I think I did this, they went on the wall - but it didn't last long. I love my children but I don't need them on the wall and in all honesty I just don't like the way it looks. There are so may other ways in which we can display the people we love and I have been experimenting with this recently.
When we got married last July ( finally ) I didn't really want a photographer, I did away with lots of traditions, but I am so glad that we did. However once the photographs are there what do you do with them? Put them in an album, give them away as gifts, look at them on your phone, put them on Instagram..... I have done all of these things! I also got some of them printed from Instagram using a company called Firebox. They were fantastic and their customer services was fab. Check them out firebox.com
I wanted to create a wedding wall where I could be creative with my photos, I used frameless frames so I could add other little nic-nacs from our wedding day. I am really pleased with it. I think I am getting a little sentimental in my old age too as I have added a couple of pictures of my babies when they were babies to the kitchen blackboard. In a creative way of course! Photographs can be displayed in many ways - go and break with tradition.
