If you know me even a little bit you know that I love to have photos on canvas. They make such a statement in your home and easily and beautifully show off your family. My husband actually made a "joke" about being a photographer's husband on Instagram when we got these from my own family session recently (see here). Despite his humor, I still love photos on canvas. The kids were super excited too that they are on the walls, on often point where they are in the pictures. I read an article semi-recently about the benefit of having family photos on the wall and how it has a positive effect on self esteem in children. My favorite part was the quote from Cathy Lander-Goldberg, a psychologist that says "Displaying photos prominently in the home sends the message that our family and those in it are important to one another, and we honor the memories we have experienced." Isn't that reason enough to get your family on the walls?
Now I realize that there are a lot of "deals" out there for canvases. So why order through a photographer? Because professional labs have a higher standard, they use better inks (ensuring proper color matching to what you see on a printed image), have tighter corners, and last longer. If you've taken the time and invested the money to have a photographer capture your family, why then take your photos to a warehouse or big box store to have poorly printed?
I realize that canvases are an investment. But they are one I truly stand behind. That's why photos on canvas are this week's Friday Favorite!
