ct newborn, baby, and family photographer | cropping guide

So you had your session, received your USB with your digital files, now it’s time to PRINT them!  Don’t let them sit on that USB forever and ever.  Get some photos in an album, print them and put them on your walls.  Make sure to display them!

When ordering prints, it is very important to keep the aspect ratio in mind. When printing certain sizes some cropping will occur. To give you a better idea of what to expect from each crop size, use the cropping guide below. When cropping you want to make sure your subjects are still inside your frame.  Some photos you will have to adjust, and some crop ratios will not work with every photo. For example, the family photo on the bottom right is not a pleasant crop in a 1:1 ratio because mom’s boot is chopped at her ankle.  When cropping onto a person you want to avoid cropping at a joint such as the wrist, elbow, knee, and wrist.


I hope you found this cropping guide helpful.  Thank you to Sacha Blue for sharing this template!
