You just finished your portrait session and now you are ready to order artwork to proudly display in your home.  It seems that there are so many options when it comes to displaying photos – from prints to frames, wall art to albums. In this article, we will explore the best ways to display your photos in your home. From choosing the right type of photo display to finding alternative solutions for displaying multiple photos at once, we’ll cover all the bases to give you plenty of ideas for creating beautiful visual displays in your home that will last a lifetime.

What are Wall Displays?

A great way to display photos in your home is by hanging wall displays. But what the heck are wall displays anyway?  A Wall display is simply a term that describes anything from a simple frame to a more elaborate arrangement. There are many different ways to go about creating a wall display, and the best way will depend on your personal style and the type of photos you want to display.

If you have a large collection of photos that you want to display, you may want to look at creating a large display of canvases that covers a large portion of your wall. Wall Collages can be created using multiple sizes and shapes of photo, and they make for a really unique display. You can also get creative with how you arrange the photos in your Wall Collage. 

If you only have a few photos that you want to display, then a frame may be all you need. You can find frames in just about any style, so it’s easy to find one that will fit with the rest of your decor. Just make sure to choose a frame that will complement the photo rather than overwhelm it.

Wrapped Gallery (canvas) Print

One of my favorite ways to display photos in my home are canvas prints.  This will allow you to show off your favorite photos while protecting them from damage. Canvas prints can be created from any photo, and they make a great addition to any room. Many people tend to go for that 16×20 size for a canvas.  It is a great size as it is not so small that you can’t see the photo but its not so big that it over powers the room.  It really is a great size to begin your artwork collection with.  Then as the years go on, you can add to the collection with other sized canvases. 

A wrapped canvas is created by printing a photo onto treated canvas material. The edges are then stretched and shaped in order to create a “wrapped” effect. This means that the sides of the photo wrap around the edge of the canvas so that it looks like there is no border at all. This creates a very modern look and feel.


Photo frames come in all sorts of sizes, shapes, and colors, so you can find one that fits your style. There are rustic wood styles, metal frames, plastic, and very traditional styles.  You can also get creative with how you display your photos by using different types of frames.

When choosing a frame for your photo, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, consider the size of the photo. You’ll want to choose a frame that is large enough to show off the photo without being too overpowering. Second, think about the color and style of the frame. You’ll want to choose a frame that compliments the photo and fits with your overall décor. Thirdly, consider the type of material the frame is made from. Some frames are made from wood or metal, while others are made from plastic or glass. Choose a material that will complement your photo and match the rest of your décor. And lastly, do you want to add a matte in your frame?  If you do, this can change the size of the frame you will want to choose.

Metal Prints

If you’re looking for a modern and sleek way to display your photos in your home, then metal prints are the way to go. Metal prints are created by printing your photo onto a sheet of aluminum, which gives the image a clean and contemporary look. Plus, metal prints are extremely durable and can withstand even the most humid conditions without warping or fading.

Metal prints also have the benefit of being lighter than traditional framed prints, so they’re easy to hang on any wall in your home. And because they’re not glass, they’re also safer to hang in homes with small children or pets.

If you’re looking for a unique way to display your photos, metal prints are definitely worth considering.

Heirloom Photo Albums and Photo Books

Heirloom photo albums and photo books are another popular way to display photos. These albums and books are designed to last a lifetime and can be passed down from generation to generation. Heirloom albums and books usually feature high-quality materials, such as acid-free paper and archival-grade bindings.

The album or book may include embellishments such as ribbon ties, fabric covers, and intricate patterns. Some heirloom albums and books can be customized with personal touches like text and captions. These albums and books are typically more expensive than standard photo albums, but the quality is well worth the cost for those looking to preserve their memories for years to come.


Acrylic Prints

Acrylic prints are a great way to showcase your photos from your photography session in your home.  They are durable, and the colors are vibrant and beautiful. You can buy them ready-made, or you can have them custom made. They come in a variety of sizes, so you can find the perfect one for your space.

Acrylic prints are made using a material that is lightweight, but incredibly durable. The acrylic sheet is covered with a layer of UV-resistant ink, and then sealed with a glossy coating. This makes your images look sharp and vivid, and they are resistant to fading over time.

Wood Prints

There are a lot of ways to display your photos in your home, but one of the best (and most unique) ways is to get them printed on wood. Wood prints give your photos a rustic look that can really make them stand out. Plus, they’re durable and easy to care for, so you can enjoy your photos for years to come.

Wood prints are created by printing your photos directly onto wood panels using a special process. This gives the print an organic look and feel, as the wood grain shows through the image. There are a variety of types of wood to choose from, so you can find one that will match your decor perfectly.

There are several ways to get your photos on wood.  There are prints that are printed right on wood, that are thin and almost like a wood print.  You can have your photo prints directly onto wood but have it look like a canvas, where it is free floating away from the wall.  YOu can also have your photo printed directly on to wood ornaments.  

Glass Photo Prints

Glass photo prints are made by printing your photo onto a sheet of glass, and they offer a number of benefits over traditional photo prints.

Glass photo prints are extremely durable and will not fade over time. They are also resistant to water damage, making them ideal for display in areas where moisture is present, such as bathrooms and kitchens. Glass photo prints can be hung on walls or placed on shelves or tabletop surfaces, and they make a great addition to any home décor.


If you don’t want to have something printed, and are looking for a modern way to display your photos, consider using a digital frame. You can find digital frames that range in price from around $30 to $200. Some even come with features like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, so you can easily send photos to them from your computer or smartphone.

Another option in to display your photos on a TV or computer monitor as a slideshow.  They even make TV screens that look like they have a frame around it so you can change out the photos with a slideshow, but still have the illusion of a framed photo.

Other Creative Options

In addition to traditional photo albums, frames, and wall displays, there are a number of other creative options for displaying your photos in your home. Photo books are a popular option, as they allow you to create a custom book of your favorite photos. You can also create custom calendars or prints that can be hung on the wall or displayed on a shelf. There are endless possibilities when it comes to displaying your photos, so get creative and have fun!

Other options include using digital frames, creating a photo collage, or displaying your photos in a shadowbox or scrapbook. For those who like to be tech-savvy, there are also apps that can help you create digital displays of your favorite photos. You could also consider getting creative with the way you hang and arrange traditional picture frames on the wall, such as creating a wall “gallery” with all of your photos displayed together. There is no right or wrong way to display your photos – just have fun with it!

Displaying your photos in your home is a great way to add a personal touch and show off all the memories you have captured. From frames on the wall to photo albums or scrapbooks; there are lots of different ways you can display your photographs. It is important to choose a method that works for you and reflects your own style as well as being practical for where it will be placed. Hopefully, this article has given you some inspiration on how best to display your precious photos in an artistic manner around your home!
