New Product Review- Print Wraps | Raleigh Family Photographer

I like to practice what I preach.  I believe that while digitals are great to have (especially in this day and age), I love to have prints that I can look at daily throughout my house and office.  Each picture hanging reminds me of that exact moment including feelings and events of the great memories.  I just love it!  

I received notice from one of my printing labs the other day that they were doing a special on Print Wraps.  I was curious and had a couple shots of the kids that I wanted to print out so figured I would give it a try.  To be honest I wasn't 100% sure what to expect...they essentially are a canvas wrap but without the canvas, just the print.  I could picture it but couldn't.  I have to say I was so pleasantly surprised!  I ordered one with the picture wrapping around the edges and then one where I picked a color for the edges.  I just love them!  So much I am now trying to decide on two more to order so I can finish that part of the wall with a great design! 

The print is laminated for protection and then wrapped around a wooden frame.  The print also comes with a wooden hanger.  You don't need to buy any frames for them and even better they are easy to clean by just wiping with a lightly damp cloth!  

I took a couple quick pictures of the product so you can see for yourself in my own home.   If you have any questions or would like any more information on this product just let me know- would love to discuss or even show you in person!

I chose to pull the picture on the edges of this picture- for this type of picture this worked out really well

Went with a black border on the edges for the picture with the tractor so I wouldn't lose any of the picture

You can see the wooden frame that the picture is wrapped around. Additionally, the wooden block that comes with the wrap is already installed where you just need a nail in the wall and you are set for hanging.

My husband and I are joining some good friends in Kauai in September and I can't wait!  During my time there though I would absolutely LOVE to do some sessions- I mean can you ask for a better background than Hawaii?  I will be bringing my equipment with me ready to go!  It is a well needed trip - with a lot of relaxation, but honestly I am so excited to take out my camera there.

If you know anybody that will be there in September I would love to hear from them!  Now booking limited spaces.

I am so happy that I get to be involved with such an amazing organization and do what I love!  On  May 17th, I have paired up with the Carolina Boxer Rescue (where Sonic and Ruckus both came from) to do a dog Photo Shoot for Raleigh!  The session is $50 for 1 dog and 20 minutes (includes digital files) or $75 for 2 dogs and 30 minutes.  All the money raised goes to CBR!  All types of dogs are welcome, however, all boxers will be entered into a contest to be featured in the 2016 Carolina Boxer Rescue Calendar (photo sessions are going on all through NC).  All participants, regardless of breed, will be featured on the individual date of their choice in the calendar!

The session on May 17th will be at Raleigh Community Animal Hospital from 1-5.  Time slots are limited and you must register and pay in advance.  You can register and get more information here.   I will also be giving out a special treat to those that sign up and participate!
