I enjoy family photographs. When I visit someone’s house, my eyes go straight to their family portraits hung on their walls, not other “art” hung on walls. I just love seeing how the photographer captured that family in a photo. We recently had the privilege of having our family portrait taken at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens by a phenomenal Akron photographer, Bruce Gates. The value of a great family portrait or any favorite shot is lived out at its fullest when presented on canvas. My first thought of having our portrait on canvas is that it would be too expensive. I’m excited to tell you about Canvas People, they offer beautiful canvas prints at low prices you can afford.
Hands on Review of Canvas People
For this review, we have an 11×14 canvas. It is a nice size that is easy to frame, however we have yet to frame it. It is actually nice alone. I feel that it will be even more impressive once we frame it. I envision this canvas being in our family room or possibly the entry of our home, both of which have not yet been remodeled. I am waiting to frame this until I know what the style of those rooms will be. For now, our canvas is hanging in our upstairs hallway with other family photos, it is one of our only non-kid rooms that has been remodeled so far in our Total Home Remodel project.
It is beautiful. Photographing a canvas isn’t the easiest and you cannot appreciate the quality or the feel of the finished product adequately. I’ll try though. Below is a close up of just my kids, don’t they look adorable!? Notice how this looks like an oil painting on canvas?
To me, this canvas says a “lasting” and quality photo that will be cherished much more than a traditional print. It is something to be admired while walking by. I just love it. It would be even more impressive as a 16×20 or 18×24 as a centerpiece in the family room, maybe that will be what we do for our family portrait next year. Our family room should be complete by then.
Just remember that the canvas will be wrapped on all 4 sides. It makes for a nice finish, especially if you want to hang as-is without a frame. However, be sure your image is large enough and doesn’t cut off too much. I probably should have paid a little closer attention to this myself, but our results were fine even though I didn’t.
