Finding the Perfect Way to Display Your Portraits
We often get asked for recommendations on how to display the wall portraits that we create for our family portrait clients. There are many fun and unique things to do with your photos; you may want to hang them in traditional frames or canvases, make a photo collage, or maybe even do something entirely unique. No matter what you decide to do we can help you select the perfect materials and the right sizes for your portraits.
Traditional Wall Portraits
One popular way to display your family photos is in traditional frames. We offer a wide variety of beautiful framed print options that you can consider.
Frames come in many colors and styles, including a few boutique styles that we’ll be telling you more about soon… Any framed print that you purchase from us will arrive as a complete piece that is ready to hang. Of course you always have the option to frame your portraits yourself. There are many ways to add your own style to the process and you might consider making them non-traditional by painting or decorating them. You might do this to make the frame better fit the tone and personality of the portrait, or may you just want to do it because it’s fun and it matches your own personality!
Alternatives to frames include Canvas Prints, High Gloss Metal Prints, and Float Wraps. All three of these options really focus the attention on the image itself (rather than diluting it with a frame or a mat). They can hang almost anywhere and they throw a very unique spin on your normal decorating. We have samples of all of these products available to show you when you come in for your ordering session.
A very popular way to display a number of images from a family portrait session (or images from several sessions over a few years) is to make a gallery wall that is specifically designed to display your portraits. This can consist of a shelf with a variety of frames, canvases, or mounted prints, or it could be a carefully designed collage wall with several pieces mounted together in a pattern. Your portraits can be displayed here for everyone to see when they visit.
