Who Took That? Real Customer's Ideas for Turning Photos into Canvas Prints

by Eric Von Lehmden | August 27, 2012

The Houlihan family is a relatively young family. They have a daughter who is about 1 year old. The Houlihans, like most young families wanted to capture the memories of this time by doing a family photo session and ordering several photos on canvas. We want to show you one of these photos that says so much about their budding family. There are some simple takeaways from this photo that you can apply to your next family photo session no matter how old your kids are.

Bring some things that your family likes to do for fun. Here you can see the Houlihans with their daughters favorite book...that's "Runaway Bunny" by the way. Sometimes it is these simple props that can make a memorable photo. They will always remember this moment in time in their lives. By choosing this photo with a few other close ups of their daughter to make into canvas prints, you get the sense of what their family is all about. Some where black and white and some were color. There is no rule that says you can't mix black and white photos with color photos in your wall collage. So whether your family is into sports, or music or board games...think of some creative ways to incorporate that into at least one of your family portraits the next time you do them. Consider what you would like to see on your photo canvas and where in your house you would like to display it...then go out and have a blast taking photos.

An easy set up to photograph a still-life is a solid sheet (black or white...or any color that suits your fancy), a window, and your object. Choose your set up perpendicular or at an angle to the window and prop your sheet up so you don't see any wrinkles or folds. Presto you have beautiful light on your subject.
