Styling your Portrait in Prose
Nothing if not versatile, text from Portraits in Prose could feature anywhere you want to employ bespoke writing for particular effect. So while most clients opt for either framing their text or including it in a photo book, as you’ll see from the examples below, the creative styling possibilities are endless.
You could frame the whole text, depending on its size, or just a section from more developed writing that’s presented in a different format alongside.
This would work beautifully in children’s bedrooms, a centre of family life like the kitchen or on the mantelpiece next to your favourite wedding picture.
You might decide to make the bespoke text itself the main focus in a planned photo book or have it complement your photographs more subtly.
Whether short or long, our text could adapt to suit whatever photo book you have in mind: engagement photo shoot, family pictures or wedding photographs.
Why not create a unique birthday or anniversary card with written extracts from a ‘May your song always be sung’ commission, given as a gift?
Or take particularly special lines from an ‘i carry your heart with me’ engagement portrait and use them on your wedding stationery or reception decorations?
You could even create original artwork to accompany the bespoke piece of writing – two portraits, one paint or print/the other words, forming one wonderful partnership.
