One thing I’ve loved doing in recent years is having family photos taken. There was about a 5 year period where we didn’t take a family photo. Now that all of my siblings and I are married and my brother has kids, it’s nice to do this once a year and see how the family has grown and how everyone has changed.
Once the photos have been taken, the best part is having them framed as gifts. Framebridge is always my go-to when I need photos printed and framed! I’ve worked with them several times over the years (see posts here and here) and they never fail to disappoint.
This year I framed a photo for my older brother since him and his wife welcomed their second baby this year, Caleb. And my twin brother got one as well since he’s engaged and just bought a house with his fiancee. The perfect housewarming gift! See how the project turned out below.
For the frames, I shopped the Archive Collection. The Archive Collection is an exclusive collection of custom frame moldings with a high-end classic look. It draws from 19th Century Chicago architecture, so it’s great for framing pieces that carry personal historical value.
I love how both pieces turned out and can’t wait to see my brother’s faces when they open them during our family Christmas tomorrow. (FYI, this post isn’t late, I celebrated with my in-laws Christmas day and am celebrating with my family tomorrow). These photos will be something they can hang on the wall and look at as their families grow!
