The Toscana Collection

|Clients often get overwhelmed when I ask them at their pre-session consultation if they've thought about how they might want to display their images from our upcoming session. Choosing a display method is just as important as choosing the right images for that display, and it's easy to understand how people can worry about making the right decision(s) with all the options available to them. There's no need to panic, though.
I want my clients to be as comfortable and confident as they possibly can in making those final image/display decisions, so in addition the a la carte options I've always had, a little over a year ago I put together a few sample wall collections as ideas for helping clients to decide what to do with their images. They certainly have the freedom to order custom collections that I may not have listed as everyone has different needs; I've simply found clients are much more confident in their purchase decisions if they can 'try before they buy' so to speak, and being able to see these collections in a real space can provide comforting validation when they're making an investment in custom photography. To do that, I've put several of the collections up on walls in my own home so that they can see them when they come in for their viewing/ordering session. This, in combination with seeing virtual layouts on a computer display using images of walls from their own home, is a huge help in making those final decisions.
That being said, here's one of the collections I offer. I used images from my trips to Paris earlier this year for this display which currently resides in our living room. Here's the details:

The Toscana Collection is a canvas gallery wrap collection made up of 6 pieces in the following sizes:
40x25 ~ main centerpiece image
20x30 (x2) ~ outside images
12x12 (x3) ~ lower middle images
Each canvas is wrapped on a 2.5" wooden stretcher framed, signed, and coated with an environmentally safe protective sealant.
This collection is ideal for larger wall spaces, e.g. above a sofa, in a long hallway or on a dining room wall, and becuase of the number of pieces and variety of sizes of images in the Toscana Collection, it can often be broken up into smaller groupings to fit multiple smaller spaces as well.
