About CJ Wilkes Photography

Capturing Your Dance In The Rain is such a thrill and joy to me. Being able to look back on those special times through beautiful artistic imagery makes it a worthwhile challenge.
Learning to Dance in the Rain has been very easy for me. I am drawn to Water & Life! The exciting part for me is to teach you to enjoy your moment in the dance as I capture it from behind my camera.
Looking forward to Capturing Your Dance In The Rain

Product ~ 8×8 hinged Album

I have had multiple requests for product images ~ more of them. Well here it is. Today’s post is featuring the 8×8 hinged Album. There are multiple options now for the hinged album including cloth, leather, and photographic covers. This one is my personal favorite with leather on the binding and yet you still get your custom cover.

All albums have a custom designed template to match the session. There are 10 spreads or 20 pages (each side = a page). The albums usually hold a minimum of 25 images. Now my 8×8 albums are hinged albums. They lay flat but are not the flush mounts.  What does that mean? It means it has the thinner pages. They are stiffer than regular paper but no near as thick as the flush mounts. It makes it more affordable for my client. I list a price for an 8×8 album, but if you are interested in something bigger or smaller there are options.

After someone has a session with me I ask them to choose anywhere from 25-30 images that are their very favorites. From there the artist in me goes wild. I hope you enjoy Kaitlyn’s Senior Photo Album.

As you can see in the upper image – the pages are card stock quality. That makes in stand up really wall. Pages do not bend as easily as a regular book.

The spine is leather and as you can see – the folds are finished professionally. Your product is guaranteed the best and inspected by myself before it ever comes to you.

Lay flat is just that. When a book opens it is usually bound directly to the spine. The hinged albums have a hinging mechanism that allows the book to open and lay flat. This works amazingly for displaying on coffee tables, receptions, and simply for viewing. The entire image is in your view and not down in a crease.

The hinged albums start with a single page first on the right.

The paper preference that is standard on my hinged albums is a pearl paper. The sheen is very lovely and compliments the art perfectly. Even though it is the standard you can still request for Luster pages instead at no additional cost.

Below you can see the sheen from the last page of this album too. The nice thing about the pearl used here is that although it has a sheen it is not so distracting to disturb you while looking at your images. Instead the pearl enhances the images to look ever so elegant. Some would say romantic.

I have included the spreads so you can see one of my many designs and how it is utilized. I do offer more simple designs for those who prefer just a white or black background.

The last page is a page rather than a spread as well. You can see the black paper to the side that helps protect the page. Each page designed to showcase your images in the best light possible.

So when you come for your photo session ~ keep in mind our amazing and very affordable Hinged Albums.
