Possible Pairings - What do You Think?

Every once in a while, a client will ask me for suggestions on which photographs to pair together. I really enjoy the process of finding just the right pair, trio, or quartet for a specific room or environment. Depending on how the photographs are paired, the overall color tones can go a variety of directions. Sometimes, simply the way the photographs are arranged on a wall can dramatically change how they play off of each other.

When working on photos, I discover that certain ones work together naturally -- usually they were shot around the same period of time or are part of a series. However, one of the most exciting things for me is to see what You pick out, and how you choose to pair or arrange my work. Sometimes You discover a combination that had never occurred to me, and I love it!

Yesterday I started working on a new promotional postcard, which essentially has four photographs on the front, and my contact info on the back -- basically a postcard sized business card. If you've ever purchased photographs from me, one of these postcards might be hanging on your fridge or bulletin board (or shuffled in a stack of papers) at this very moment.

So, here are a couple of versions of the new card-- Before I send one off to the printer, I'd love to know -- Which is your favorite? They're all similar, but different!

Thanks for your input, I hope you've enjoyed being a part of today's creative process...!


  1. definetely the second one. yellows and blues are more balanced. good luck!

  2. The second one. It has a perfect vintage feel.

  3. You guys are great! Thanks for the input.

  4. I don't comment often but I often stop by for inspiration...and I wanted to pick a favorite before I looked to see what others picked...and I was immediately drawn to the second group too...the yellows and blues are so happy together in that group...

  5. For me, first choice-the second one. But if you like to try something new, the third is not too bad... isn't it?
