A lot of people who take pictures to custom framing studios do so with images that they've never previously had in a frame. For example, you might take a candid shot of your children that you love enough to get framed and hang in your home. In other scenarios, you may wish to get a new frame for a picture that you already have hanging on your wall. You can remove the picture from its frame to take to your framing studio, but if you're having trouble getting the picture out — something that is often the case when it's been in the frame for a long time — it's best to let a framing professional do this for you. Here are three times to think about reframing a picture.
You Have A Bigger Budget
A lot of people buy cheap frames for their pictures because they're affordable at the time. For example, if you took a picture in college that you wanted to display in your home, you might have bought a cheap frame from a local big box store. After you begin to work upon graduating, you'll have more disposable income — and this means that you may want to use a better-looking frame around the picture. The right frame will do a lot for the picture's overall appearance, so visit a framing studio to look at your options.
You Have A Deeper Sentimental Attachment
In other situations, you may have recently developed a deeper sentimental attachment to a picture and want to better protect it with the right frame. For example, if you have a framed picture of a family member who has recently passed away, you'll likely view the picture with an increased sense of importance. You don't want the image to fade over time, but this is something that can occur with poor-quality frames that lack the right glass. Your professional framer will suggest high-quality glass that reflects UV rays and will prevent the photo from fading.
You're Changing Your Décor
A simple reason to think about reframing a picture that you have hanging in your home is that you've made some décor changes. While the current frame might have matched how the room used to look, it may now be a poor visual fit. Instead of letting the framed picture stand out for the wrong reasons, you can visit a framing studio to look for a better frame. Make sure to take along some images of your remodeled room, as they'll help the framing professional to get a sense of how the frame should look.

When I was a child, it seemed like my parents never stopped taking photos of me and my brothers. I actually began to hide every time they got the camera out. When I moved out on my own, I vowed to never own a camera. I ended up purchasing a cell phone that had one, and after playing around with it a little, I learned how much fun it was to take photos! I loved it so much I went to school to learn how to be a professional photographer, and I enjoy every minute of my job. Just the other day, I took a look at all of my family's old photos and, I have to admit, I am so glad my parents took them! I have a little spare time to fill, so I decided to start a blog to share my photography tips! Come back often!
