3 Photowall Ideas

3 Photowall Ideas

Printing photos is so important in the digital age. How many of us have lost photos because of a computer crashing? And don’t just print those photos, but display them too! Here are three photowall ideas from my own home.

1. Hang unframed mounted photos on the wall.

Don’t be afraid to Go Big with your photos. The 8×10’s of our childhood are neither “standard” nor large photos these days! Big photos make a big impression.

To give you a bit of perspective on size, look at Tilly standing next to our photowall:

You can see just how ludicrously tiny an 8×10 family portrait would look on our wall! photowall, photo wall, photowall ideas, how to display photos, photos on styrene, mounted photos, how to hang photos, command strips

Here is a close-up of the photos so you can see how they look on the styrene. I like clean, uncluttered lines which is why I chose to hang unframed photos on my wall. This images are mounted for durability and are coated with UV protection.

2. Buy matching for an eye-catching photowall. These are 12×12 frames with a simple black border.

This photowall was designed to be fun! No formal portraits allowed here. I wanted somewhere to display some silly photos that I loved. The 12×12 frames allow me to easily and inexpensively switch out these photos. The photos that come off the wall go directly into our family scrapbooks.

3. Hang favorite photos on a string, attached with small office clips.

I was inspired to start this photowall after attending a local photography conference where we each brought an image to display. I decided to have my own rotating photo display and enjoy some of my favorite photos.

Here is the view from our formal wall looking toward my very casual photo wall.

I hope you are inspired to hang some of your own photos up on the wall. If you have a photo, feel free to post a link in the comments. I’d love to take a look!

Nine year old Hezekiah has always been a deep thinker.

At age four, shortly after learning to read, he announced he planned to be the first man on Mars.

He likes to dream big.

The Superhero Project {Bellingham Portrait Photographer}

For those of you who don’t know, my youngest son, Apollo, was born with a rare congenital heart defect called a double aortic arch. He wasn’t diagnosed until he was 18 months old despite his failure to thrive, noisy breathing and struggles with eating. 2012 was The Year of the Hospital for us. Apollo was diagnosed in January, had surgery on his heart in March, a g-tube placed in May and a second heart surgery (in another state) in October. Along with three major surgeries he had dozens of doctor’s visits and various diagnostic tests.

I have been visualizing these Superhero photos in my head all winter, but needed to wait for the weather to warm up and cooperate.

As a photographer, nothing gives me more joy than conceiving an image in my head and then being able to recreate it with my camera. I know these images will always be among my favorites, and I hope they will someday be some of my son’s favorites as well.

Apollo still struggles to eat and running around the yard makes him short of breath.

I took these photos to preserve the Superhero Spirit inside of my little survivor.

Like most little boys his age, Apollo believes he is the biggest, strongest superhero ever.

And I’m not about to tell him any different.
