Displaying your professional images in your home | How to make a beautiful gallery wall

Columbus Ohio Photographer

I was recently contacted by Megan of Monkey Bar Storage in Columbus, OH. She reached out to collaborate with me on what it takes to design a gallery wall in your home to display your beautiful images! As a photographer who specializes in custom wall art and designing wall galleries for my clients, I was excited to help out! Megan wrote this blog post and included some helpful tips, as well as included images from my portfolio to design the walls. This is a custom feature I offer my clients from every session. I hope you enjoy the post!

Organizing Your Professional Gallery Wall

 

I often find myself wanting to reorganize my home without having the time and resources to give it that total makeover I’m hoping for. Yet, there are several different things I can change without spending a fortune and it eating up all my spare time. I have found that really focusing on my living room has given my home a fresher feel and helps any guests feel more welcome. Here are a few tips to beautify your living room by simply organizing the pictures on the wall. 

 

Select Coordinating Frames

Make sure that the frames you choose for your gallery wall coordinate with the furniture and wall decor to keep the cohesive feel in your living room.  Don’t be afraid to use different sizes, colors, and shapes as long as they all work together without clashing. You can also find artwork that fits with the style of your home to incorporate with your gallery wall. 

 

Map It Out

Before you start hanging your pictures and artwork, be sure to layout each frame on the ground how you want it to look on your wall. Space them out exactly how you are thinking so you can take the measurements. You can also take string or tape to map out the bottom and top of the wall so you know how high up you’ll want your pictures to hang. Don’t forget to take note in the layout where sofas or shelving units may be so you don’t run into issues when you start hanging.

Take the Measurements

It can be tricky to remember which measurements go with each frame and where on the wall you want to place them. You can bypass this by using sticky notes or easy peel tape. For each picture, measure how far apart the d-rings on the back of the frame are to make it easier when hanging. You will also need to measure how far apart each frame is from the next. This will include how far up the bottom pictures will be from the base of your wall. 

 

Find Wall Hangers

Depending on what kind of wall and paint you have in your living room, you will need to purchase different kinds of wall hangers. If you have heavier pictures make sure you have a wall mount you won’t have to worry about staying up. Here are a few ideas of wall hangers you can use for your pictures.

 

●     Command strips

●     Monkey hooks

●     Wire toggle hooks

●     Crimp nail hooks

●     One step hangers

Hang Your Pictures

Using the measurements, you’ve already taken, start hanging your pictures! Be sure to double check measurements as you go along to make sure you don’t have to put more holes in your wall than necessary. Take your time and make sure you know how your wall hangers go into your wall properly. It can be incredibly frustrating if you have to uninstall and install hangers over and over again. It is also helpful to have a level handy to help make sure your pictures aren’t slanted to give your gallery wall a professional look.

Step Back and Admire

Organizing your gallery wall can take a while, so make sure you take a step back to admire your handiwork! If you have pictures from Jacqueline Marie Photography included in your gallery will be sure to send her a picture of your wall as well. Professional pictures make every gallery wall come alive and Jacqueline would love to admire your wall with you.

 

Organizing the pictures on your wall is the first giant step to beautifying your living area. Finding 5 or 10 minutes here or there will help you organize the rest of the room. What other ideas do you have to beautify your living room?

Mommy and Me Photography Columbus Ohio | Mother and Daughter Spring Session Captured at InnisWoods Metro Park

Mommy and Me Photography Session Columbus Ohio

Mommy and me photo sessions are so fun to capture!  This gorgeous session wit Crystal and Audrey is another favorite session of capturing true memories of motherhood!

Crystal first contacted me a few months ago to schedule a session with her daughter Audrey.  She wanted memories of her and her little girl to remember before she turned one.  We chose a gorgeous evening in May at InnisWoods Metro Park in Westerville, OH.  The flowers were perfect and made for beautiful images!

Sweet little Audrey did amazing for her session.  She was so full of smiles and has quite the personality.  She is one of theist easy going babies I've ever been around.   I just love all the memories we captured for Audrey and her mommy!  Thank again Crystal.  I hope these images bring you memories for years to come!

I sent the evening with this family in April to capture memories for them to share their exciting family news!  Their little girl is being promoted to big sister.  Baby #2 is expected to arrive in November!

Columbus Ohio Milestone Baby Photographer | Mina is 6 months old

Baby Photography Columbus, OH

One of the best things about this job is watching so many little ones grow over their first year!  The Reczek family from New Albany, OH has two beautiful little girls!  I've had the honor to capture many memories through my lens for their family!

Mina came to see me for her milestone session.  She has grown so much since her newborn photography session.  I love to recreate a setup from their newborn session to show how much they've grown in just a few short months!  The first image below is just that!  

Mina took a little bit to warm up to me, then she was all smiles!  I love her gallery of images and so happy mom chose a beautiful wood photo block to display in their home of her favorite image!  Thank you again Reczek family for trusting me with these precious memories.  I can't wait to see in a few months for Mina's cake smash session!
