I was so good when I had my first born to get our family photos taken every three to four months to capture us in various seasons and Buba at every stage. Somewhere between starting work and having a second child that has fallen to the way side. So I have to rely on taking them myself or a random capture by a stranger if we are out on one of our adventures and pray that they turn out ok.
The one above was taken this December while we sang Christmas carols with a bass brand. We had to ask someone to take it for us but we were really pleased that he actually got the four of us looking straight at the camera. That’s a huge accomplishment for us, nevermind making us all smile, that’s a lot to ask for. Nevertheless, it’s one we have many great memories so it means more than just a photo.
I was excited to team up with Wall Create to get it printed on a canvas for the wall. There is something special about a photo on canvas instead of just framed on the wall. It stands out more and has more texture to it. The quality of the print was superb, the colors all came out vibrant and Wall Create matched the siding with the background of the actual photo which I thought looked great.
It was really light weight so I only needed one command strip to put at the top to secure it in place, fast and easily. I thought it brought more color to our dining room as it’s probably the only room in the house without numerous photos of us adorning the walls. Well, not anymore.
I placed my finger underneath so that you can see the size relative to it. I think it’s a great size at 40cm x 30 cm. None of the detail was lost like some printing can do so I was impressed, and the whole family love it. The kids love to point them self out and shout at it which is highly amusing. I am not sure we will ever do the in store professional family photos anymore. This day and age it’s so easy to take a photo yourself or have a friend snap one and have them printed by a company. The kids find it more comfortable being in their own element having their picture taken than a photo studio any day.
