Size Matters

I got a call this morning from a client of ours who had senior portraits and a family portrait done this year. She and her husband had repainted their living room, and were in the process of rehanging pictures. Having been liberated from having "no free wall space" by virtue of having to take everything off the walls to paint, she discovered that the when she took advantage of the wide open surface and put her family portrait on that wide expanse of wall, it suddenly seemed not big enough.

One of the things we do here at Studio Mark Emile is provide expert advice in sizing the prints and canvases that we provide to our clients. In so doing, we try to guide you to the optimal size for your situation and budget. Now you might think that we always try to sell the largest sized prints that we carry, but we don't, and for a very good reason. It's not always the best size for our clients.

When you come to us for a family portrait, one of the things to keep in mind is what you are going to do with the prints you purchase. If you have a plan for what you are looking for, it makes it MUCH easier for us to provide you with precisely the right products for you, whether they are framed wall prints, canvas clusters, wall groupings or what have you.

This morning's client wished she had gone a size or two larger on her gallery wrap. Instead she will be adding another gallery wrap or two to fill the space. We are happy to help her either way, of course. But if you wish to avoid repeating her experience, consider where you are going to be putting your finished portraits when you come in for your premiere. You will find it's time well spent.
