Home / Blog / 5 Ways To Show Off Your Summer Photography!


Hey Photographer, Shannon here!

Happy Labor Day! With September’s arrival, it’s pretty evident how fast the summer flew by, and while we technically have a couple weeks left of it, many of us are heading back to school or buckling down in preparation for the fall rush. I hope you’ve had a wonderful summer season and were able to take tons of awesome photos. With that being said, I want to challenge you to take a moment to reflect on the images you’ve captured over the past few months. Sit down and sort through your photos and choose some of your absolute favorites. What do you love about them? What is your eye drawn to? How have you grown as a photographer since the start of the season? Now, how can you preserve these special moments so they’re remembered as part of the most EPIC summer yet?! Here are a few ways to ensure you’ll never forget it:

  1. Create a photo book– There are so many photo book services out there today, like Snapfish and Shutterfly, that allow you to choose photos and compile a beautiful book to remember vacations, special occasions, and other events. Why not create one for all of Summer ’17?
  2. Order prints– Is there one special photograph you keep referring back to? Are you exceptionally proud of the way it turned out? Maybe the composition is stellar and the colors are super vibrant and it’s just what your living room wall needs. Check out some photo printing services such as Adorama.com and Nationsphotolab.com and have your new wall art delivered to your door. You can frame them, too!
  3. Make a calendar– Perhaps you long for summer all year round, so what better way to commemorate your warmer adventures throughout the colder months than through a calendar? All of the companies/websites listed in this post allow you to create calendars as well.
  4. Put together an Instagram book– Many of us are pretty Instagram-crazy these days, so maybe you find yourself sharing photos on your social media handles often. There are sites that allow you to create miniature books that easily format your Insta photos for you, and the compact size is perfect to flip through if you don’t want a bigger, bulkier book. They’re great for gifts, too! Check out Chatbooks.com or Artifactuprising.com.
  5. Send postcards– Sending postcards of your photos is a nice way to keep in touch with friends you might not see as often. You can let them know how your summer was and make plans to get together, and they’ll have a piece of your awesome work to hang on the fridge, too!

Happy creating! 😉
