Your Kids as Art

April 17, 2013 at 5:03 AM 4 comments

Graham and I had beautiful newborn pictures taken of Josie when she was just six days old by the very talented Nicole Paulson!  They came out so sweet and fun.  We have one shot framed on a side table and we’ve given some framed pics away to her adoring grandparents.  But, of course, I want more of the adorable newborn shots printed and on display.  So, why not go big?

Here is what I’m thinking…

I think the trick for making kid pics look more like art is to blow them up extra large and to choose a shot that is a little unusual or humorous versus the typical posed shot.  Perhaps something like this…


I won’t be blowing up this shot because the last thing I want to see is a 20 x 30 image of myself.  However, I did insist for Nicole to take this photo to play off of our funky vintage portraits behind.  Do you know how hard it was to keep a straight face for this one?  Oh newborn photo shoot humor…maybe I was still loopy off of the c-section drugs when I thought this one up.

    This is a great idea–go big! I can totally appreciate the tongue-and-cheek recreation of “American Gothic” that you and Graham have of yourselves. Hilarious!
