I have been doing photography since my baby girl was born, over 7 years ago. I fell in love with taking pictures of other people’s kids and families. It was a great outlet for me and I wanted to emphasis the importance of filling your walls with PHOTOS, so I made some wall display options to show my clients. After many requests from photographers to make them into templates, I decided to give it a go and that’s when my focus turned from photography to designs. I still love and adore photography and take MANY pictures of my kids and family! But it was then that I created my very first set of design templates, my Wall Display Templates :
Now, as I said, I love pictures…a lot! And although my mind goes blank when it comes to decorating with them in my own home, I sure do try! I love BIG, make a statement, WOW wall galleries! The first thing you see when you walk into my house is three giant canvas of my kids (sure, they are 2 years old, but I don’t have the heart to take them down…I puffy heart them)! I’ve discovered that pictures don’t do them justice, but I do get that WOW from everyone who enters my home.
For me, having pictures of my family in my home melts my heart. The collage below was my first BIG canvas I ever purchased. At the time, we were tight on funds but there was a sale I couldn’t pass up. I am so glad I went ahead and purchased it anyways! I can’t tell you how many times I have just sat on my couch and adored having this in my home (keep in mind I have had this canvas over 3 years now…I don’t just spend hours sitting on my couch lol).
Last but not least, I did have BIG plans for our 2011 family pictures (taken by Mitzi Torgersen Photography), but was vetoed by the hubby LOL! We are going to be putting our home on the market and don’t need an extra project of filling up holes! I was able to get all my pictures and get them into frames though. I can’t WAIT for the day I get to put it all up! When it’s all done, it will span over 8 ft and for sure be another WOW display in our new home!
So there you have it! Kristen, thanks so much for thinking of me when you put this project together!
Thank you, Melissa! I love the varying room displays, and I adore the current display–it’s fun to see it spread out and ready to go! I found Melissa a while ago because of her lovely digital design work. I have used her templates for holiday cards that I offer my clients, as well as our family cards last Christmas. (Hint, get on her email list, and you will be privy to her excellent sales!) And for photographers, she also creates backdrops for us natural light users–looks SO fun!
