Wall Art Inspirations: Canvases Heirlooms

10/05/17

Hopefully you follow @idaliaphotographynewborns on Instagram because then you’ve surely seen the wall art inspirations I love to share!

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!

Wall Art Inspirations | Canvases

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.

Canvas Singles

The canvas single is for showcasing just one image. I love how it can easily become the focus of any wall in your home.

Canvas Groupings

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.

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!

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.

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
