Let’s talk about what you do with those beautiful photos you’ve had taken of your family! It breaks my heart when family photos only live on hard drives and instagram feeds. Although those are really great places for your favorite pictures to be, they aren’t the ONLY places they should be! The images of you and your loved ones deserve to adorn the walls of your home. They should be made into art pieces because that’s what they truly are, after all. As your Oakland Family Photographer i’m always thrilled when I get to create beautiful works of art out of your photos!

A favorite way for me to display photos is through fine art Canvases. They’re a beautiful and timeless option, that really gives a photograph a beautiful feel. One of the advantages of hanging a canvas is that you don’t have to find a frame, it’s already a final product in and of itself. The texture of stretched canvas is like no other too, it gives photos so much depth!

Canvas wraps are so versatile since they can be grouped with other canvases to make a statement wall. Or they can be placed among other framed photos and types of art. They also look great hung all on their own! I recently got to make some large and beautiful canvas prints for a sweet family that hired me last year for some family photos. The final product was so beautiful to see in person and to hold in my hands. There’s just something so special about seeing photos enlarged and in print!

The lab that I have canvas wraps created at does such an amazing job and the quality really is unbeatable! The photo is printed directly onto a museum-quality canvas and then stretched over a frame. To finish it off the back of the canvas is completed with a paper backing, bumpers, and a sawtooth hanger to make putting it on your wall easy. Finally, the canvas is finished with a coating to protect it over time!

It’s never too late to print some photos from your session with me! If you want to know more about how to get some beautiful canvas prints like these made let me know! I’d love to help you decide what size and combinations work best for you and your home!
