ct newborn photographer canvas wall art

When you look into doing a newborn session, do you think about what you are actually going to do with the images? All of my sessions come with a certain number of digital files. I love being able to give my clients the digital images where they can print on their own. Whether it’s to give prints to family, make a scrapbook – either traditional or digital, print for frames in their home, put on a coffee mug, mouse pad, or just to share on facebook and social media. I LOVE to share my photos, and I love even more when they are printed. I am guilty of what many of us do this day and age. I take photos of my family (or have them taken by another photographer) and many times they stay on my computer. I share them on facebook, maybe update my cover photo or profile picture. Then they sit. Usually for longer than I care to admit. I’m a digital scrapbooker, so eventually they do into a scrapbook. My kids each have a scrapbook of their first year (my older ones have a little bit past) but maintaining a separate scrapbook for each of my kids was getting a little much. Now my goal is to do a yearly family scrapbook. They’ll have to fight over the pages when they’re older, ha! However, there’s nothing like printing a large piece of wall art for your home. Last year I took our 2013 family photo and made a large 30×40 canvas for above our fireplace. It is huge, but it fits nicely in the space, and I just love it. It is definitely a statement piece. I want to help you create your own wall art with images from our session.

Below you will see some stock images with different canvas designs from my clients’ sessions. Want to see what it will look in your space? You can send me an image of your space with just your cell phone and send it to me. I will be able to create different designs with images from your session and you’ll be able to order high quality, professional canvases from me. Since all of my sessions are color coordinated based on colors YOU like, they will look perfect in your home. Take a look at some recent designs I’ve made.

 The image below shows 4 16×20 canvases. ct newborn photographer canvas wall art

You might think a 16×20 is too large, but look at this grouping of 4. They really fit perfectly in the space. Look what happens when you put a grouping of four 8×10’s in this space. It looks so tiny and there’s too much empty space.

Here are some other examples of what you can do in different spaces. Always remember, bigger is better! 8×10 and smaller is great for frames on a table top, but if you want some wall art make sure to fill the space nicely! This image below shows a large 20×30 in the center and two 8x12s on either side.

One last one for today. This next Canvas wall art gallery shows a large 20×30 with an 11×14 on either side.

My 2015 clients will be receiving an email with some mock ups from their session. I would be more than happy to send some to my 2014 and prior clients as well. If you are interested just shoot me an email and I’d love to help design your space. I will give you directions on how I can use an image of your own home and design it right on that wall! I look forward to helping decorate your walls!
