A beautiful printed portrait of your family in your home can do more than fill an empty wall. Besides bringing a sense of warmth and happiness to you every time you see it, it also creates a sense of belonging for the rest of your family.  According to research, displaying family and children portraits in your home enhances feelings of emotional security and boosts confidence in children.

Choosing the Perfect Spot for your Wall Portrait

When deciding where to hang your wall portrait think about where you and your family will see and enjoy it the most. Usually the family room or living room is the obvious choice but you may want to display it in another area of your home depending on where you spend a lot of time.

Deciding on the Right Size of Wall Portrait

Before you meet with your photographer to look at your portraits from your photo session have a quick look around your home and think about where you might want to hang it. Consider moving an old photo or piece of artwork to another spot. You may want to measure the wall to give you an idea of what size would look good. You could also take a picture of the space for reference to show your photographer. Most photography studios can show you your photos in different sizes at the time of viewing to give you an idea of what it would look like and what size would be best.

Framing your Wall Portrait

Once you have chosen the right size, you can decide on a frame that compliments your wall portrait and the style of your home and decor. Generally, simple darker coloured frames work well with most photos and offer a timeless look. Some full service photography studios make it easy by offering custom framing of your family portrait and can even help you with hanging your portrait up in your home.
