Your world is your family. Showcasing your cherished memories in your home will be the subject of conversation every time you have guests.
It will make your house a home and will last for generations. You will want to display your artwork where guests are sure to see and admire your display.
Many people think that family portraits do not complement their modern decor. On the contrary, they compliment any home. People will buy paintings of complete strangers in them, so why not decorate your home with your family portrait and make your home personal and inviting. Not to mention the interest and color it can bring to a room.
Before heading out to your session, you might want to consider clothing and where your artwork will be displayed.
Clothing is very important. Avoid clothing with patterns to keep the focus on the faces. It is also a classic way to represent your family.
Solid colors such as jeans and black tops, jeans and white tops, jeans and grey tops, jeans and navy tops, will never become outdated. Only the hairstyle!!!
You can opt for dark clothing if the fabrics in your room are darker or lighter clothing for lighter fabrics.
Everyone in the photos should dress in the same range so you achieve color balance and harmony. This will enrich your image and at the same time capture memories.
Think about where you want to display your images. You can measure your wall to give you an idea for proper size. Do you need a horizontal photo or a vertical photo? Do you want one large image or a display of 2 to 3. This is when a consultation is useful.
Choosing the appropriate size image is important. Your artwork should enhance the area. There is nothing worst than a small photo on a large wall looking like a stamp or a large photo on a small wall looking awkward.
The large portrait will stand out on top of your sofa, fireplace or home entrance. A gallery of images will fill the staircase wall.
A horizontal row will balance the space and will give a calming illusion, a vertical row with an odd number will add a feeling of height to a room.
Larger images are mounted and laminated to protect them from fading and becoming yellow with age.
Canvass Gallery Wraps are available for those who prefer a clean, modern look.
I hope these tips were helpful. With a bit of planning your home will look stunning and will make your guests envy you at your next gathering.
