Pics of the kids….I’d love your input

by Dana on September 11, 2012

I’m so bad at hanging artwork in our home.
To be honest, I kind of like the walls bare because it feels breathable….and makes for simple photo backdrops.
But it’s time my friends.
Time to “finish” the home….so I can actually share it with you! (along with that, ahem, sewing room I painted neon yellow last year. Eesh)

So I took some pics of the kids last month. And I need to pick just one photo I can blow up to a large canvas or frame on the wall.

I’d love your input!

Of course I have my two favorites. Or I could make a small series of 2 or 3 shots?
Okay I’ll stop rambling.
Let me know which group photo you like best (note the small photo numbers in the group shots)…

and a few less usable outtakes…..
I love these munchkins!

my favorite is the first one :)

I love the bottom picture. You can see all of their blue eyes and everyone is looking at the camera.

3 Carley @ On One Hand September 11, 2012 at 3:55 pm

My vote is #1! They’re all gorgeous, but #1 draws my eyes only to the kids, since the background is all white, and the way they’re positioned is great!

Ditto – Number #1

Ditto – Number 1! (5 is my backup)

6 Aimee September 12, 2012 at 3:55 pm

Definitely #1. Then I’d get a solo shot of each of them and make three smaller canvases to go directly under the big canvas, equal to the width of the big one.

Group 5 is cute (although they all are!!)

I say 5 is the cutest c: I love how lucy is holding Claras hand, and they’re all grinning. :0)

I Love 3 and 5.

Your kids are always incredibly adorable. :) (unrelated note: I just found out that after 2 boys I’m having a girl! I finally get to use the name I’ve been planning on for as long as I can remember: Lucy. Yay.)

#1 is my favorite!

11 Anna September 11, 2012 at 3:58 pm

The first outtake, definately. That will make you laugh out loud everytime you see it! And my second choice is yesterday’s-munchkinsonslide-instagram. That one was just perfect!

Reply

12 Melinda September 12, 2012 at 8:10 pm

I’m with Anna! That face and the responses of the older two are what you see every day. I like #5, it has nice expressions and one you could send to friends and family. I am sorry I missed yesterday’s instagram. I’m also sorry I missed the book signing in Seattle. I’ll be visiting my daughter there next week. I so enjoy you sharing your beautiful children with all of us!

I like number 1 (and all of the rest of course)

14 Michelle Kersey September 11, 2012 at 4:01 pm

I like #1 the best for the group pic to blow up big… I’d make an arrangement of them though, if you search “Wall display guides” on google you’ll see some different ways to arrange the images. You can do one big one, and have smaller ones around it in various positions. :)

Reply

15 Teresa September 11, 2012 at 4:03 pm

I have to agree with Anna up there — the first outtake is my favorite. It captures the kids perfectly! But if you’re truly against that one, I pick 1 or 5.

16 Emily September 11, 2012 at 4:03 pm

5!

17 Ariel W. September 11, 2012 at 4:03 pm

3 and 5 seemed to stand out more. ADORABLE kids! And…because of your post on Cinnamon Shores, we headed down to Port A this last weekend and loved every minute of it. We stayed at the Sea Gull in a very cute unit, and we were in heaven!!

18 Justine Powell September 11, 2012 at 4:05 pm

I think #1 is te best to be blown up for a wall photo. But they are all truly beautiful!!

Reply

19 Brenda September 11, 2012 at 4:05 pm

I love them all! But I vote for the first one – I like their positioning best in that one. Tough choice! I’m glad I don’t have the final say! Your kids are adorable as always :)

20 Andrea September 11, 2012 at 4:06 pm

I think #1, but I actually love the last outtake even more…Clara’s expression in that one is priceless!

Love #3 & #5 with #5 being the favorite! I liked the last one too!

22 Nicola September 11, 2012 at 4:08 pm

Number 5! Gorgeous and intimate! I love number 1 too but I once had a similar picture of my little ones on the wall and I never really knew which way up to put it or which way to look at it, it bothered me so much I had to take it down – I like my children all the same way up!!!!

Reply

23 Dkb September 11, 2012 at 11:29 pm

I agree with nicola. I like 1 but for a big pic on the wall it would bug me to have kids upside down. I wouldn’t be able to see their faces well. Use that for a smaller pic . So many of the pics are so cute I might pull a few together for a series

Reply

24 Angela September 11, 2012 at 4:09 pm

I vote 3, the expressions on their faces are perfect and I love that the older kids are touching Clara, it is so sweet. 1 is a close second. The 1st outtake rocks, I love Clara’s expression.

all their faces are so clear and there is nothing distracting from that at all. love the contrast of white and colors and the dark bed headboard as well.

I agree. 1 takes the cake but I adore 7 as well… if only clara’s hand wasn’t blurry. And for that, 3 gets my runner up pick.

I replied to this on Twitter, but will weigh in here, too. I suggest a collage of all of them (group shots and individual pics), with some of them larger than others, some cropped to be squares, etc. They’re all adorable! (And I’m bad at whittling down beautiful things.)

#1 – because it looks very natural and all the kids looking at the camera and enjoying themselves. #6 is my next favorite, but I think #1 is a better picture of Lucy.

My vote is #1. So sweet of all of them. By the way, it’s refreshing to not see any burlap headbands on your girls. Too over-done on my opinion.

First choice: #3. Second choice: #1 (but maybe with Clara at the bottom edge?) The bed photos are ADORABLE, but I envision them more in a hallway near the bedrooms rather then in the living room.

Hi Dana!
It’s very difficult but I choose the n.1 for a bigger poster, but also a collage to put in an other part could be interesting.

Reply

66 Katharine September 11, 2012 at 5:05 pm

#1 for sure. It’s captures all your kids in a natural pose, it’s modern because it’s vertical (I have too many photos of my kids lined up in a horizontal row).
Great pic!

I love #1 and 3. The look on Clara’s face in that last one is hilarious.

75 treen September 11, 2012 at 5:17 pm

number 1 for a poster-size. 3 would work too, but with two of the kids upside down in that framing, it makes me literally a little dizzy to look at it even on a small scale. If you did 3, I’d turn it sideways.

Reply

76 Emily September 11, 2012 at 5:20 pm

I have comfort in these photos… It may just be because they are taking pictures but I notice that Owen has his hands on Clara’s cheeks…. this is a position that my kids are in ALL THE TIME! I have 2 sons ages exactly like Owen and Clara and my oldest is obsessed with caressing his little brothers (chubby, mind you) cheeks! Even if it’s just in these photos… it makes me feel better!!

I like #3, and the individuals best. They would make a nice grouping if you did the large group shot and 3 small individuals below or above no longer than the large frame- if that makes sense. Fun pictures! :)

#3 as a big canvas and then one individual shot of each of them on smaller canvases underneath or scattered around the main canvas. The group of photos under the #5 group shot would be perfect (though I am also very partial to the photo of Clara’s legs from behind that makes it seem like you wanted to get a shot of her and she scooted too fast for you :) )

1 and 3 are my favorites. 5 would be my next choice#2 is cute but the little one looks like a Cabbage Patch doll, it doesn’t capture that little spark I see in other pics where she is smiling. I LOVE her expression in the first “unusable” out take, you should crop in to just her face and blow that up to like a 8×10, that would be so cute on the wall and it would probably always make you smile

The three individual shots between #5 and #6 would be great, if you could edit the legs out of the last photo.

I like #7 because it shows the children interacting, but I think my favourite is the very last one in the outtakes – it seems to show each of their individual characters.

I love number 1 best of all! I think you should blow that one up and then use some of the individual ones in smaller sizes as a collage with it…the three between 5 and 6.

I love #4. Unexpected and original.

But the first out-take is pretty special too. And #5 is a great pic of all three kids.

Unless it’s going in the bedroom, my favorite is #1. If it is going in the bedroom (or a more personal place than a living room, for example), my favorite is #5. :)

As a mom of 3, I have some valuable advice. Your older 2 look roughly how they will look in the next few years, but that sweet babe will change conitinually. Pick individual shots so you can update as needed! I love the baby shots of #3, but it’s been great to update them. (leaving the older ones!)

155 Heather September 11, 2012 at 9:29 pm

The first outtake is the best! Every time your kids are stressing you out, you can look up at those charming smiles and feel your tension slip away. If not an outtake, then I think #1 looks great too! Such cute kids!

1 or 2, but I’d crop out your alarm clock and get a little tighter. I’ve tried several staggered kids shots, but inevitably, you can’t hang it in any direction that doesn’t make it look like you favor the kid that is right-side-up the most. You might try putting their heads all together in the same direction so their ears are all touching (or the tops of their heads are all touching, but no one is completely turned another direction). Great pics though. CUTE KIDS!

I think 5 is the best group shot because it’s the one that prominently features all three kids, whereas the others seem to center around Clara. Other than that, the first one is my true favorite (other than the outtakes, of course. Hilarious!)

I think you need a giganto one of all three kids (I like #1 and #3). And then on a different wall, a triptich of each kid by themselves.

I’ll be honest though – I love the 2nd outtake. It’s very real.

Triptych style, #3 in the middle with the baby as the center, and the left picture of your son (after #5), and the right picture of your daughter (after #5). This way, everyone gets an immediate recognition in an easy to see photo, and the shot in the middle adds a fun punch, without having to look sideways too long. :)

My favorite is #3 but only if you turn it vertically (so that no-one looks upside down). I also love #1 and #5. Keep the “unusables” and crop them down to focus on one or two people or a detail, like a loving touch or a baby’s smirk. Then use the cropped photos to surround your large group photo. Look forward to seeing what you do!

I think you should do a collage of several pictures in different, but matching frames (like different sizes but same color). For the living room, 1,3,4,6, and the last one you called unuseable (I love her expression). And then you could do the same thing with some of the other ones above your bed.

Number 1, no doubt!

Hi Dana, I know you have a ton of comments already! Not sure if this is something already mentioned, but I love number 5….also love the idea of using a close up shot of each one and framing side by side. Adorable little faces! : )

303 Jamieson September 12, 2012 at 4:25 pm

numbers 3 and 4 are my favorites — I like them as a pairing because three focuses on their faces but four is more artistic and non-traditional.

304 sarmar September 12, 2012 at 4:41 pm

All of these are fantastic. I really love the shots taken from above. If you have a square canvas you could rotate it in the wall now and then to keep one image fresh, just keep giving it a quarter turn and it’s a whole new composition. Well done Dana!

I vote for 7. I love the movement and that each kid shows a different feeling…

#3 is my favorite group shot. Everyone is looking at the camera, and Owen’s hand on Clara’s ear/face is super cute. :)

315 Sandra Ross September 12, 2012 at 6:36 pm

I don’t have an URL, but my talented daughter has started one! I also read the reviews, and my conclusion is that you make beautiful children! I selected #1(One) for the reasons already voiced – it was a perfect picture and everyone is looking right at the talented photographer! I would like to see it vertically, but it’s my favorite choice of a large, striking canvas used as a interesting focal point. God Bless and Thanks for sharing!

#1! They all are beautiful but #1 is definitely the best!

I like the first outtake and (awesome) and then #3.

Reply

318 Maggie S. September 12, 2012 at 7:43 pm

I like #1 but your son is not looking at the camera. Not a problem but I think #3 is better because you have all their attention. Either one would be great.

#5 and the first out-take :)

Reply

331 Angela September 12, 2012 at 10:31 pm

Whew – you asked for input and you got a lot of it! Well, I can’t be left out! I’d say #5, cropped a little tighter and printed large, then put individual prints of each of the 3 kids either below in a horizontal row or beside in a vertical row. I love #1 as well but I find that in most of the pictures where your older 2 are upside down or sideways, Clara is always a little straighter and it becomes a beautiful picture of her with her lovable sidekicks as supporting models rather than the 3 of them all being the gorgeous stars they are. And there’s my 2 cents! ;)

I love #3 and #5 best!

335 CarinaRdz September 13, 2012 at 12:05 am

I like a lot of them however, I would choose #1 for a hanging wall picture because all the kids will be horizontal. I love the ones where two are upside down but I think having upside down pictures of my kids on my wall would grow old after awhile…. It’s a great wall photo! (and just a great photo overall)
Bottom line though, you have to pick the one that fits your home and the one that you love!

So cute. I y
Think the first one and number 5 plus the first outtake is is simply fab. I have an unusual canvas of my eldest yawning as a baby which my sister did. Not something I would have ever done myself but I simply love it. You have such lovely children and a great way of taking photos need to take more of my own. Good luck finishing off the room xx

#1, without a doubt…solid white is better as background than the check. And, you HAVE to use the first outtake as well. Crop out your son’s left arm from the elbow down (it will look as if it’s behind baby girl instead) and it’s perfect!

#1 is my pick, but I would do a large of it surrounded with the individual pics of the kiddos(the 3 posted below #5) in a smaller size. And you HAVE to hang a shot of those sweet little chubby baby legs.
