If you follow @idaliaphotographynewborns on Instagram, you’ve surely seen the wall art inspirations I’ve been sharing there these last few months! Late last year, I decided that 2017 would be the year when I’d finally start showcasing some of the beautiful wall art that we can create with the images from our time together. All too often, images remain on phones, computers, and worse – USB’s that will one day be a thing of the past. Remember floppy disks? And CD’s? My laptop doesn’t even come with a disk drive! I truly believe that images are meant to be enjoyed as much as possible, and what better way than to showcase them in your home. Today’s post is meant to not only inspire mothers to print your images but also to inspire you to do something amazing with them! I’ll be highlighting different products this year but for now, let me introduce you to the canvas options.
Canvases are perfect for when you want to do something really special with one or more images from a collection. I love canvases for their elegance and simplicity. You just unwrap them and put them up! No need to fuss with frames! Although frames have their own advantages, of course – more on that in a future post! But for today, enjoy this display of canvas options for your home.
The canvas single is for showcasing just one image. I thought it was perfect for this image of Emilia. It’s the perfect size to show off that adorable face she has! I love how it can easily become the focus of the nursery.
Canvases of this size also look good in a hallway, like this one little Cordelia with her big sister.
And of course, a canvas single looks beautiful in the master bedroom, too!
Sometimes you have too many favorites to settle for one canvas single. Enter canvas groupings. These are my favorites to make because they have a way of really showing off the collection of images we create in a way that is beautifully cohesive. This one of Sofia and her family is called Tres Chic. I love how it includes one focus image and two smaller ones to complement it.
Here is Tres Chic again for a family of four.
Another option for creating a canvas grouping with newborn and family photos is Trilogy. This one is perfect when you have a couple of portrait orientation images you want to showcase with a landscape one.
Here is a slight variation of Trilogy, with a wider central image.
Also possible is a simple Triptych. This is one of my favorite styles for showcasing photos of parents with their baby.
Next is Jigsaw. This grouping is perfect for when you have a mix of landscapes and portraits. How cute is Eva? That little smirk just cracks me up each time!
I also love how it looks with images in black and white! Here’s Jigsaw with images from Cameron’s shoot.
And here is Rosalie with her proud parents:
If you like squared crops then Quad is the canvas grouping for you. I absolutely love this one of Emilia and her parents.
This next one is probably the most unique of all. It’s called Showcase and it showcases one landscape and three portrait orientations. I used images from Peter’s session to show this one off:
If you can believe it, I achieved this collection of Emilia in a mini-session! She slept so well that we were able to get several different set-ups for her parents. Here she is in a 3 x 3. What better way to show off a complete mini-session!
And here are a couple of additional 3 x 3s, this time I included photos of the baby and parents, too.
And in this one I included not only baby and parents, but siblings, too!
Voilà! I hope this collection of wall art pieces inspires you to dream about the beautiful pieces we can create with your images. Interested in ordering one of these canvas options? Click here to contact me.
