one of my favorite things to do for my clients are collages, or storyboards as they are sometimes called in the phography world. why do i like them? well i suppose the most obvious reason is that they look absolutely fantastic framed up on the wall! but i think the real reason is the freedom they allow. you don't have to pick your one favorite photo, you can use your favorite 3 or 6 or 12 and put them together to create something that represents your child or family. and i love that, rather than just popping your photos into a precut mat, a collage allows you to have so many more options for the sizes of photos and the layout, plus you can really make it personal and unique by adding a name or date or a quote. to me a collage is all about possibility - the possibilities are endless. and if you can dream it i can create it!

here is a recent collage i did for a family. i didn't plan to do this collage and the mum didn't ask that i create one, but i found that i could not chose my one favorite photo of this pose! so i thought, to hell with it! i am not going to pick one favorite, i am going to use all 3! like i said, it is all about the possibility... =)
