Finally. I've wanted to do this forever!
I finally printed a few beach photos and framed them for above the school cubbies. There used to be a quilt there, then a... tree.
The boy photos are from 2010, the one of the girl is from last year. I wanted photos of the beach because (it is my heaven and) we now have such awesome family memories there. I think photos with people in them are more interesting than just landscapes, though. But I didn't want more oversized portraits of my kiddos (like above my mantel in the next room). So these have my children in them, but they're not ABOUT my children, does that make sense? Kinda?
I think they look smaller in these shots, but they are each 16 x 20. I printed them at Costco ($5.99!) and I was really pleased with the results. They look just like on my screen. Very pleased indeed.
There is also a little satisfaction in picking these photos because they are straight from the camera - no editing.
The only thing I'm not happy about is the glare from the windows. Unfortunately there is just too much light in that area and you just can't see them well from some angles depending on the time of day.
Overall, very pleased, though, and so glad they're finally up!
