Tis the shopping season! While obviously now is the time to give to others, I can’t help myself from drooling over some of the awesome photo gear that is available right now. Do you have a photo-enthusiast in your life? Here are a few gifts I personally recommend to make their holidays a little brighter.
1. Weird but interesting: Little People in the City by Slinkachu, a London-based artist who places tiny hand-painted images of people on street corners, park benches, leaving them to “fend” for themselves until they are discovered by passersby.
2. The Photojojo Phone Lens Series. These cool little lenses attach to your phone via a little circular magnet. (I own these myself and love the fish-eye and macro!) Buy at this link and receive $5 off.
3. It looks like a regular purse, but No! it’s an Epiphanie camera bag. I have a different style in black and love how it both hides my precious equipment and compliments my outfit. (Men’s styles also available.)
4. I found these Rustic Refined frames on Etsy. They have a big selection of colors and sizes and most are made from wood scraps that were going to be burned. This size would be perfect for an Instagram print!
5. Personalized iPhone cases from TinyPrints. Use their pre-designed templates or create your own from scratch. Get your photo-enthusiast about this site and let them go wild with creativity.

…the holidays! And you know it is when you go shopping and the sneaky store folks slip in a holiday tune every three songs. At least it’s not overkill… yet. So if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em, right?!
It’s time to start figuring out what gifts and cards to give your loved ones. Fresca Photo can help you create your greeting cards or pick out a perfect photography gift.

If you’ve decided to spend time and money on having professional photos taken of you or your family, then at some point you are going to need to choose how to show off your beautiful new images. It’s important to remember that size matters! While small prints are perfect for sharing and gifting to family and friends, showcasing them in your home is another story. If you’re planning on showcasing just one, bigger is usually better. Would you rather stay small? Clustering is key; and your photographer will have hopefully taken a few that work very well as a set. See below for an example. (The images on the dresser are 5×7 prints.)
1 – A lone, 20×20 standout print. Eye-catching because of it’s square cropping and size.
2 – A lone, 11×14 standout print. Next to the items on the dresser, it gets a little lost on the wall.
3 – Two 11×14 standout prints, working well as a pair. Add two more for a staggered set. Four squares would look great too.
4 – Two different sized standouts. Line up the edges for a more symmetrical layout.
If you are working with Fresca Photo, we will happily take a look at your home for perfect spots to place your images and even put together different design packages for you to choose from!
We’ve got a new senior announcement grad design hot off the press – country elegance. One of our Senior Rep photo shoots inspired the charm behind the design. It’s delicate and simple, but soft and pretty. Perfect for an understated announcement for an artistic and mature high school senior!
There are limited photo sessions left available for Fall, so contact us soon to set up your appointment!
A recent photo shoot out in the quaint town of Sudbury (west of Boston) inspired our new grad announcement design, Classical Curves. The natural beauty of the location was breathtaking – so much so that we felt that the image of our senior and the landscape spoke for itself. Minimal text and gorgeous curves shape the card, and we give it a little kick on lightly shimmery, smooth paper. It’s one of our new favorites for sure!
If you’re in the New England area, contact Fresca Photo to set up your Fall senior appointment! We will also be in DC at the end of October and have just a couple of open session times left, so contact us soon.
We’ve got a new design to share – custom grad announcements in our Contemporary Grid style. After your session you choose your favorite photos, colors and text to add to the modern and fresh layout. Send them to announce your upcoming graduation and/or graduation party!
Apply here to find out more about the program. We’re quickly filling up the Fall calendar, so contact us soon to set up your high school senior photoshoot!
These are my favorite photography products out of everything I offer – Mini Book Albums!
They are so cute and tiny, only 3×3 (they fit in the palm of your hand) and are perfect for family, senior and newborn sessions. The design is completely customized to the session, so it matches the photos, and you receive two per order. An extra special twist? They are magnetized! The magnets hold the book together, but you can also stick them on your fridge if you want.
I received a special delivery over the weekend – standout print samples. The photos are much more vibrant and shiny than I expected (a photo of a photo really doesn’t do them justice) which makes me incredibly happy! I’m going to blow up some HUGE abstract photos for my walls at home.
