Check out K and D's finished wall portraits from their post-wedding bridal portraits/wedding portraits session! The first wall portrait is a 24x36 size canvas gallery wrap for K and D (above), and the second is a 30x40 custom-framed art print to hang in the entryway of K's parents' lakehouse home (below). Beautiful, are they not?


Many thanks as well for writing another amazing review of or bridal portraits/wedding portraits services on Google (see below).

Haven't thought yet about what to do with your beautiful newborn photography once your session has been completed? The one thing you should NOT do is to put your priceless newborn photography out of sight and out of mind on a computer hard drive or thumb drive or CD. What a waste that would be! Instead, celebrate with our beautiful, heirloom-quality art products, and begin a photographic legacy to be passed down and cherished for generations.


In this post, we're spotlighting one of our newborn photography clients' favorite ways to enjoy their artwork: wall portrait love groupings.


New to wall portraits? A wall portrait is simply a physical art piece that by itself, or in a series, is large enough to fill a wall space. We can print your wall portraits on canvas, metal, or traditional photographic paper, and then custom-frame them or mount them for a frameless display. Group three or more wall portraits together and display them on a single wall, and you get what we call a "love grouping."


When considering love groupings, think of where you would hang your wall portraits. Areas of your home that you spend significant amounts of time in are ideal.


Our newborn photographer knows that there can be so many options in terms of size, layouts, and even where you hang them in your home, and that can be overwhelming. That's why we offer our newborn photography clients a complimentary home design consultation. Simply send us cell phone photos of your rooms, and we'll drag and drop your favorite newborn portraits onto your room photos. They'll be calibrated to scale, so that our newborn photographer can change wall portrait sizes, layouts, and frames before your very eyes so you can envision all the options and see what you like the best before making your final selections!


Pictured here is one of our favorite asymmetrical, frameless love groupings. With total dimensions of 56x42, this love grouping is perfect for hanging over a standard 55" long crib.

Did you catch the previous blog post with some of my favorite images from Caitlin and Phil's sweet couple's portrait photography session at our Maryland photography studio? I had promised to post photos of their finished artwork, so voilà! A four piece canvas wall portrait love grouping for their family room. The largest wall portrait is 24x36 inches. We shipped the artwork via FedEX to their home in Sykesville, MD, and this is the e-mail I received from Caitlin:


"They arrived and I'm OBSESSED!! Thank you so much again and again!!"


Yay!!! This little e-mail made the day for our Maryland portrait photographers!


Celebrate your relationship with your own couple's portrait photography session.

How many truly amazing family portraits do you have? How many of them are locked away in an e-mail or social media account that you can't remember the password to? How many of them were lost in a hard drive crash? How many were lost when you lost your phone? How many of them have you printed out and displayed in your home on a wall or in a photo album? And with you being a busy mom or dad, likely behind the camera most of the time, how many of these family portraits actually include YOU?


In her article, "Are We Breeding a 'Lost Generation' Who Won't Have Photo Albums to Capture Their Lives?" Julia Llewellyn Smith mulls over the fact that while her 10-year old daughter delights in looking at family portraits of her mom as a child, when her daughter asks, "Where are the pictures of my Christmases?" Julia shamefully answers that she's unsure.


So don't let your children become part of the "lost generation." Instead, give your children a solid sense of their past with professional family photography in conjunction with heirloom wall art and custom, heirloom-quality photography albums.


Need ideas?  Check out the family photography album we custom-designed and printed for the M. family from their indoor-outdoor, in-home fall family pictures session in McLean, Virginia.  The M's chose a premium black leather cover for their 10x10 size, 22-page family photography album with an elegant art linen inside paper.
