Phoenix Photographer: Luxury Portrait Albums

I’ve been a Phoenix photographer for over 10 years now and I’ve never offered albums. Why? Because I never really fell in love with any of them! I’ve been offering custom artwork since I opened Magical Memories by Michelle, and printed products are very important to me. If you’ve seen my products, you know that the majority of them are printed on high quality silk photographic paper. Since then, well, I guess I’m spoiled. I want everything printed in silk! While I did find some beautiful albums, none of them offered silk pages. Until now!

Photographic Silk Paper

Ok, so why the fuss over silk paper? One reason I love these prints is that they have very deep color tones and are just so vibrant! The texture is unlike anything other photographic papers available. In fact, many professional labs don’t even offer silk prints. One of the biggest reasons I love silk is that it is fingerprint resistant. Our product line is meant to be enjoyed for years to come so it’s extremely important to me that they hold up well. An album isn’t meant to just sit on a shelf. I want it displayed in your home and so will you! I want your family to sit around and look through the album together. I want you to have that quality downtime remembering your family at this age…without the worry of damaging your album. With silk pages, the fingerprints simply wipe off with a clean cloth. Notice I said clean, NOT wet! Just a dry cloth will remove those pesky fingerprints. That way, as your teenager leaves the nest and heads to college, you’ll have this gorgeous keepsake to look through when the reality hits. Just don’t get tears on it!

Photographic Cover

With so many designs and a beautiful black binding, these albums will match nearly any decor. Simply choose your favorite image for the cover and we’ll add any text, name, graduation year, or quote to personalize your luxury album. This will be a treasure for in your family for years.  The album will be custom designed with your favorite images and is easily displayed on a decorative easel instead of being packed away.

Your Favorite Portraits

How often do you pull the USB out and look through images from your photo shoots? How much have you really printed? For most of my clients, the USB’s sit in a drawer and go nearly untouched. After the first 100 likes on social media, the images are forgotten in a desk drawer. With an album, or any of our other unique products, your album will hold at least 20 of your favorite pictures. It makes it much easier to have a beautiful, simple way to showcase your entire session!  And here’s an added bonus. If you have digital images from any photo shoot, we can create an album with those too, as long as you have a print release.

High End Phoenix Photographer

High End, Heirloom Quality

With the layflat pages, you can spread a single image across both pages with no visible seam. Yes, these albums do have a lifetime guarantee. The pages are thick, similar to our mounted prints, and won’t easily bend or tear. I’ve heard of cheap albums falling apart after being opened only once or twice. All our products are guaranteed, including our albums. These are your memories and I want you to feel confident that your beloved portraits can be passed down for generations.

Fine Art Portraits: “Art is About Love…Not Likes.”

Recently I received a newsletter from one of my professional print labs and it said “Art is About Love…Not Likes.” The world we live in is so used to posting online that this generation will be by far the most photographed ever! Did you see that? EVER! But what do we really have? Images on your phone that could easily get lost or deleted. Images on a USB that is stored away in a drawer. Old CDs of images that you promised you’d print.  Some day.  However, professional photographers have always printed heirloom pieces of fine art for their clients and Magical Memories by Michelle does exactly that. Do we offer digital files? Yes, but the main purpose is to keep them for archival purposes and backups. The fine art we offer our clients are not products you’ll see elsewhere. Even our standard “Signature Silk Prints” aren’t something that all professional print labs offer. All of these beautiful keepsakes are combinations of products from our favorite vendors.

Signature Silk Prints

These gorgeous heirloom prints are printed on crystal silk paper. While many people choose to frame their prints, I offer a line of modern ready to display fine art. These mounted prints are thick so they aren’t easily damaged and offer multiple ways to display them. Yes, you can frame them! Because they are rigid, they are also beautifully displayed on your choice of easels. If you prefer a modern frameless look but still want to hang them on your walls, there is a secret. Are you ready? 3M Command Strips! Yes, if you’ve ever seen my office walls, all of the portraits are hung with Command Strips! It makes it much easier to correct if something is crooked or if the spacing isn’t quite right. I’ll be sharing my custom wall displays soon, so be sure to check back!

5×7 Signature Image Box

Since nobody can ever choose a favorite, our Signature Image Box was introduced in 2017. So now you can order all your favorites, choose a couple to display, then store the other prints safely in the image box. This 5×7 image box also comes printed with your favorite image and text of your choice, making these a truly one-of-a-kind keepsake! The false bottom fits perfectly inside and holds your USB safely so it doesn’t get lost.

The Signature Image Box comes complete with 10 double sided prints. Yes friends, that’s 20 images! Can’t decide on a favorite? Pick one side and simply turn it around the next day! If you want the entire collection we can do that too! Check out this huge display from one of our senior guys! It has a deeper box that fits up to 40 double sided prints, then we added 8×10 prints as well. Really can’t get much better…or so we thought!

5×7 Luxury Image Box

While I love our wooden Signature Image Box and it is definitely one of our biggest sellers, I always keep my eyes open for new items from our professional print labs. Sure enough, along came this beauty which is now our Luxury Image Box. This one is also sized to hold 5×7 prints and comes custom printed with your favorite image on the cover, but it opens like a book and can have both the spine and back printed.

11×14 Luxury Image Box

Now, let’s just say you want larger prints to display, or a variety of sizes. Check out this stunning 11×14 Luxury Image Box! So now you can choose any combination of double sided prints in 11×14, 8×10, 8×8, and 5×7. The possibilities are endless! These are perfect for larger wall shelves or entry tables. And of course the folio box itself is worthy of a prime spot in your home. While the sample shown is from one of our beautiful senior girls, these really become the perfect way to hold an entire family session! Grandparents, this is your dream! Fill it with prints of all your children and grandchildren so you can enjoy their sweet faces on display in your home!
