With so many family sessions coming up over the next few weeks, it seemed like the right time to have a little talk about large prints. Large prints are NOT 8×10’s. Sorry, but they are not. Check out this little graphic I put together to show you the different sizes and how they relate to a normal sized couch.
The bottom row of pictures are large and more appropriate for hanging on the wall above the couch. Could you even find the 5×7 and 8×10 images without using a magnifying glass? 🙂 Don’t get me wrong…5×7’s and 8×10’s are fabulous image sizes for desks, dressers, night stands, end tables, cute frames, and the grandparents. I adore those sizes and find tons of uses for them, BUT when it comes to your walls…they don’t belong there anymore than a fish belongs on the sidewalk.
That said…you could pair up two 16×24’s with a 24×30 and create a collage of images. You might even be able to throw in some 11×14’s as fillers and create an incredible wall gallery. You could keep it simple and just do two 16×24’s also. There are so.many.options!! For more ideas on hanging your photos, check out my Hanging Photos board on Pinterest. There are about a zillion ways to hang your photos on that board!
