Decorate with Your Pictures!!

Time to get your pictures off your computers and into places and spaces that you can enjoy them!!  It is important to see the memories that you've captured and reminded of the fun times you've had together!  I just finished this wall in my son's room(yay)!  I really liked how it turned out!  He loved it, and that's what is really important.

The big picture of my little guy was printed at Staples.  I know, I know you don't normally hear of professional photographers printing their pictures at Staples, but I do, at least the engineer prints.  I love using the "engineer prints."  They are super cheap and I just print them off and replace the pictures as my kids get older!  I love them!  I think they are like 5$, they are not on fabulous paper but they still look good, you can upgrade and do it on photo paper but the whole purpose for me is to have it cheap and replaceable.  I've printed a bunch of big pictures with the engineer prints and I have loved them all!  I always do them in black and white so that I don't have to worry about the color matching or looking off.  I have printed my pictures at a bunch of different places but the price point for the engineer is so cheap so I don't feel bad doing it often:).  I love big pictures in my house and this is a way I can have them without breaking the bank!  Also, just a note for the people who are interested in doing them for their house.  

I made the Lego guy holder out of an IKEA frame.  I saw the idea on Pinterest and really liked how it turned out!  Too bad my little boy loves his Lego's too much to leave them up on the board(it drives me crazy!) but you get the idea of what it would look like with the three Lego guys that are up there:)!

The awesome Star Wars Print was made by an awesome designer that has an ETSY shop 
called NicholeMariePrintery and here is a link to her shop!
I got the print printed at my favorite print shop called Pro Digital, it's a local print shop in Pleasant Grove, Utah.  They do such a wonderful job withs prints, I really love their work.

I think that presenting your photography in a meaningful way makes such a difference on how your house feels!  These memories of the places you've traveled and the people that are most important to you should be out for all to see and enjoy.  It is such a good reminder of past fun and special times.  The picture of my little boy is when he was in his "super hero" phase and he never wanted to take his costumes off.  It's only been a couple years, but it feel like a lifetime ago when he was so little!  It is a lot of fun for me to look back at those times!
Anyway, moral of the story:
 Print your pictures!  There are so many options on the good places to print your pictures and I'll try to go over more later.
I'll keep posting about the best way's I've found to print and display pictures around my house!

Desert Flower(Goblin Valley Utah, Utah Family Photographer)

When I was young I thought there really wasn't much to the desert here in Utah.  I thought it all, kind of, looked the same.  The truth was I wasn't looking for the beauty.  I didn't care to see the beautiful carved mountains, and vast landscapes.  

I took a geology class in high school where my teacher really opened my eyes to how amazing Utah is, it is so different from the rest of the world.  There is so much to see and do.  He taught me to see things differently(I am so thankful for amazing teachers).  I still am not the best person to see the beauty around me, and still take advantage of my surroundings.  I don't acknowledge the amazing world around me, as much as I should, but I'm working on it.  I try to point out the beauties to my children, and open their eyes to this amazing world that we live in. 

I've always heard people talk about the beauty of a desert flower, but I never really saw it.  This time on our trip to Goblin Valley, when all the kids were playing I noticed the plants we were walking around and trying to avoid and I was amazed at the beauty of these plants.  They are simple and the color didn't stand out as much against the red rocks but they are beautiful!  I wish I took more pictures of the vegetation, it is so unique and different!
