Family Pictures…And What to Do With Them!

I hinted in my What I Love Wednesday that we just had our family pictures done, and I couldn’t be more excited about how they turned out!  If you are a local to KC, you just have to look up Kayla Alden Photography.  She is a magician!  We’ve had her do newborns and family photos, and every time, one of our kids (almost always Jacks :)) is a disaster and doesn’t want to cooperate.  I always leave thinking, “Well, there goes all the $$.”  Then I get the pictures, and she gets that split second that the kids were looking at the camera and smiling!  Sorcery, I tell you! 🙂

All our photos came in this week and I am beyond obsessed! Here are some of my favorites.  I’ll also link the outfit details for each of us, as well as share some of my favorite gallery wall options to display these gorgeous pictures!  Because let’s be real…photos are great, but the hard part is what you actually DO with them after you get them all.

Outfit Details:

Me:  Eyelet Dress from Gap // Sandals are from years ago but linked some other favorite gladiators in What I Love Wednesday post

Jerod:  Twill Pants from Old Navy // Denim Chambray Button Down from Old Navy // Mercanti Fiorentini Loafer from DSW are last season – – linked a similar pair here

Now I Have These Gorgeous Photos…What Do I Do With Them?

I scoured Pinterest to find 20 of the most beautiful gallery wall ideas and examples.  With our house remodeling kicking off and most of my walls completely bare, I need some major inspiration.  And these amazing decorators nailed it!  Click on each photo to see just how they did it.

Check out how these walls transformed into gorgeous focal points in the room!

    Your family portraits are beautiful! I love all of these gallery walls. I’m a big fan of having photos printed and put in an album too.

    I have been wanting to do a gallery wall in our home soon! I love all the different styles you chose and examples you gave. Also, your kiddoes are ADORABLE! I love those pictures and they turned out so good!

      Thanks so much!! I feel like the photographer is just the best! They were not smiling this much during the session ☺️

    Wow, look at all those gallery walls! We can’t put anything on the walls where we live, but when we get our own place I am definitely going to create at least one gallery wall that’s full of fun photos with great memories behind them, and lots of colourful art as well ☺️

      It’s so much fun throwing a creative spin with gallery walls! Art totally makes a room, right? Totally plot and plan it now! ☺️
