Family Portraits: Invaluable Art

Today we're taking a peek inside the home of Design Aglow's founder, Lena Hyde. "After reading even more evidence about the relationship between displaying family portraits and children’s feelings of well-being, I wanted to create a family wall gallery in the breakfast area of our kitchen, where our family of four eat almost all of our meals together. We recently had our annual family portrait session, with the Manchiks, and I had so many images to choose from! We already had an album with all our images, so I picked out my absolute favorites for this simple wall arrangement.

I printed the images as 16x20 mounted prints with my pro lab and framed them using 6 of Design Aglow’s silver Bella frames in 20x24 (which include mats sized to 16x20). These frames take under a minute to insert images; the design of the opening/closing mechanism is pure genius in function and simplicity!

This gallery is enjoyed every single day and reminds my kids that they are important and loved. There is absolutely no other art I would enjoy looking at more….nothing famous, nothing fancy, nothing from a gallery or museum. Portraits of my family are truly the most invaluable art."

When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.

There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.

I am beyond grateful I get to photograph intimate destination weddings and elopements all over the world. Besides traveling for photography work, exploring new places with my husband has become a big part of our marriage and something we want to continue for the rest of our lives. My husband’s grandparents are our biggest idols. They have spent over 50 years married, traveling the world together, continuing to explore new places together. Their passion for traveling has led them to occasionally taking their entire family on vacation, most often to an exotic beach of their choice; a tradition we hope to be able continue one day in their honor.
