Be Inspired! {a guide to wall art}

I am a HUGE believer of displaying portraits on the walls of your home. And not just a small 5×7 or 8×10 here and there – I just love to see large portraits or a grouping of portraits as decor. Although there is a time and place for smaller desk portraits, I truly believe that bigger is better when it comes to wall art!







It can sometimes be difficult to visualize session portraits on your walls – hopefully this post will inspire you. These wall art galleries are perfect for telling the “story” of your family – rarely does one image do that by itself. That’s why purchasing digital files from your session is ideal – your portraits are meant to go together! You are free to change your mind about which portraits you’d like to display on your walls at any time. If you’d like help deciding which portraits to display, please ask – I am happy to assist!
Also keep in mind that you are not limited by framed prints. If you’ve been to my home, you know that I ADORE Gallery Wraps. They offer a great “wow” factor and although the initial cost might be more than a print, you don’t need a frame! Another lower-cost alternative is the Standout – somewhat similar to a gallery wrap but is produced on a lightweight gatorfoam, not a canvas. And again, no frame required. The possibilities are limitless!
A special thank you to the amazing Amy Lingenfelder for these awesome templates! I added my own touches but credit goes to her for creating them.
UPDATE on 12.2.10 – I have added several new templates below from my {wall art ideas II} post.
