Most scrappers will do a special layout for a portrait that they have had taken by a photographer. Many will choose to have their child photographed yearly and then want to showcase this portrait in a special way. Just using this one photo on a page makes the picture stand out from the rest of your pages.

I myself used this method with my boys portraits that I had taken yearly, but as for the rest of my layouts, I had a completely different style.

Using only one photo on a layout is a fairly new type of layout design for me. In my earlier scrapping days, I felt that I needed to place as many pictures on a page that would fit. I also cropped many of my beautiful photos into small shapes and sizes. This is definitely something that I regret doing! I am sure that many of you can relate to that. As my scrapping skills have improved, I have found that I just love the simple, uncluttered look of just one or two photos on a page.

When using just one great photo on a layout, the focal point is on the picture, instead of any embellishment on the page. Your eye is immediately drawn to the subject in the photo.

I have found that my photography skills have improved greatly since I have started this technique. When taking photos of your child, zoom in closely and fill the frame. This way you will ensure that your subject is the main focal point of the picture. Also, try to use contrast in your photos, in the background of the picture or in the clothes the subject is wearing. This will help your subject really stand out.

As for layout designs with just one photo, the options are endless. I like to keep my layouts simple and uncluttered, so that nothing will distract from the subject of the photo. Try using colors that enhance your pictures, which will make then sand out more. Color blocking, borders, frames all work well with this type of layout. With just the one picture, there is plenty of room for journaling and a title. Try placing your photo off centered or in one corner of the page for a unique look.

Using this style every now and then will enhance your scrapbook and showcase your favorite photos. So, get your camera and go take some fabulous pictures of your loved ones and try this scrapping technique!

You will really enjoy with these quick and simple scrapbook ideas.
