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."

As a portrait photographer that specializes in Motherhood & Young Family, much of my work involves maternity imagery. I think this season of life is amazing and SO important to capture on film but lots of new moms couldn’t feel less into the idea!  I get so many moms pregnant with their second child telling me they wish they had just gone ahead and made maternities during their first pregnancy. They usually say they didn’t feel beautiful at the time, were so uncomfortable or just didn’t see a good reason to do it at the time but now have a lot of regret over missing out on those memories.
