I have partnered with Canon to share some styling tips about printing and putting your photos on display in your home – I’m here to help get you inspired!
Your space should be filled with things you love and that tell a story. It is important to add your very own personal touch. Of course, displaying photos is the perfect way to do this. In today’s world we are all obsessed with our smartphones and snap everything we do, eat buy and see.
It’s hard to actually enjoy the moment and really be in the moment and while I think it is great to capture the life that we are living it’s also important to cherish these moments and put them on display.
I love to travel and collect things whilst away. These treasured memories and souvenirs should be cherished.
When decorating your home these memories and souvenirs are the things that really create your own personal style and how you like to live. So use them as a starting point in finding your style and you will find that this will naturally be reflected in the images you take.
Pictures don’t need to be perfect so take the pressure off yourself.
There’s plenty of time to perfect your technique. In fact some of my best photos are happy accidents when the light or timing has been just right.

My top tips for creative photo displays
1. Get your photos in your space and off your camera.
2. Decorate your space with personal touches.
3. Think outside of the box with creative ways and places to display your photos – shelves, bedside tables and sideboards are all great places.
4. Allow time for your style of photography and decorating to develop and evolve – print photos often and update your displays.
5. Group photos together and add or edit over time – style is an evolution so don’t leave things standing still but move them around.
6. Selecting a colour palette of the images (for example a group of black and white photos) ties a look together and creates a sense of sophistication and uniformity.

print your holiday snaps

So I printed all my holiday snaps straight from my Phone with the Canon Sephy Printer

I wasn’t sure where to put them so I stuck them (with blutack) onto an existing framed print to display them and to keep the holiday feeling alive!

A fun and simple project anyone can do and a great way to get your photos off your phiomne and on to your wall!

The printer is easy to use and are available in store at Target and Harvey Norman

 

make your own photobook with canon and photopico

I am excited to have teamed up with Canon Australia to inspire you to print your photos and also put them on display in your home, the first project is making your very personalised photobook

So when you love Bondi, Byron Bay and your Boston Terrier ( Sophia) so much like I do! what better way of capturing these moments than making a special book (my gift to me)

Since I know a little about publishing and making books, I can tell you making your very own (personal book) perhaps for an occasion like a wedding, the birth of a child or an awesome holiday or many more things, is a great idea! What I love about creating these books is they are like a time capsule of a specific moment, a memory to hold onto, somethings tangible to keep and to flick through. I do love being nostalgic – call me sentimental!

Here is my step by step of how to make your own:

Log on to PhotoPico – the easiest part right!
Select photo books in the menu.
Download the design tools.
Select start and then your chosen size and look of your book.
Start laying out – the design tool allows you to easily add, upload and place your own photos in your book. Play around with this for awhile until you get the hang of it – if like me it takes a few minutes but once you get the hang of it its actually really easy – it just takes a little patience.
Save – once your book layout is complete, hit save and order your project and it will be sent to you in approximately seven working days.
I chose a square book as it fit with my images beautifully. It’s now on my coffee table ready for anyone to flick through.
