What size print should I get?

Size of prints in relation to your living space.

Many people think that the 8x10 photo size is large and good enough for family portraits.  These are a perfect size for gifts to give to someone because you do not know if they will want that photo to be a main focal point in their decor.  They make a great size to be put on tables or mantels.  

The graphic below shows how the different sizes look in relation to your average sized couch.   Groupings of different size photos usually look best but you are going to want to start off with your MAIN focal photo size and build from there.

We always get questions about what is the best size print to purchase from our photo session.  This is just a little visual guideline to help you figure out what size works best for your space.
