Product Showcase: The Session Album

These albums are beautiful!  The pictures truly don’t do them justice – you have to see them in person.

  • Three sizes to choose from: 5×7, 8×10.5, and 12×12
  • The images are printed directly on the pages  of the albums, and are specially constructed to layflat.
  • Cover options: black leather, brown leather, black linen, chocolate brown, pewter, and icy pearl.  I do have sample swatches for all of the cover options.

Mine on Monday | Valentine Edition | Sarah Shah Portraits

Today’s Mine on Monday is featuring our new artwork.  It’s valentine themed, being pink and having hearts, but goes great with the shades of pink in S’s room so it will be in there all year long.  I have my Mommy goggles on – I love it so much just because she painted it.

This is such an easy project (and cheap! it’s a $7 12×12 canvas from Hobby Lobby) that you should do with your kids!  S painted one layer of paint all over the whole canvases, then once it was dry I drew heart shapes and had her paint a dark pink color within the shapes as good as she could.  I then outlined the heart shapes in black.  I got the idea from Jodie, last year.

Emily & Aiden | Wichita Kansas Children Photography

Emily, Aiden, and their parents came to my small studio in Wichita, Kansas a little over a week ago.  These kids were so much fun – full of energy, silly smiles, and great laughs!  We had a great time at their mini portrait session, setup with the valentine’s accents.  Plus, their Mom brought a few great props in to add to their session.

Welcome to These Walls Thursdays!  I hope to inspire your decorating, or at least give you some pretty inspiration to look at.  Enjoy!

Do you use Instagram (yep, I’m still waiting for the android version of this app) on your iphone?  This would be a great way to display your printed photos from that app.  Wondering where to print your Instagram photos from?  I just learned today, from my friend Emily, that Printstagr.am prints the images just as they look on your phone.

Simple, beautiful display for any bedroom.  Three vertical portraits, matted & framed over the bed.  These look to be 10×10 prints, in 11×14 frames.
