Family Photo Wall

Family Photo Wall || love the colorful picture frames!

My Family Photo Wall

After posting this Instagram, I am happy to report that I am not the only one that finds pretty picture frames at the store, hangs them up, and then proceeds to stare at the beautiful, pseudo model family portraits that come with the frames for, oh about 6+ months before deciding I need to do something about it!

Or else give the models names and adopt them into the family. That always an option too. haha!

But yeah, thanks for making me feel a little more normal. I am so glad I am not alone in this weird, creepy, picture-frame-model-adopting ordeal.


Well, after that Instagram, I finally decided to get my butt in gear and print my most recent family portraits. I actually never did print last year’s family portraits. 

That’s how awesome I am at procrastinating. 

And then Kristen emailed me about this fun series around this same time, so I really had to get going!

Decorate with Family Pictures in your home

Then my favorite online photo printing site had a sale on prints and it was like the stars aligned.

It was finally time to print my family pictures! haha

I am so glad I finally did though! They look fantastic in my cute new, colorful picture frames!


And staring at my beautiful kids faces is so much better than those strangers!

I love decorating with family pictures, but sometimes, its just an easy thing to put off for a long time.

Decorating with family pictures always makes our new homes, feel like home. We moved last summer and after putting up our family pictures, our house turned into a home.


Anyways, I hope this inspires you to print off those pictures and get them into the frames that are already on your wall!

Or print the pictures and then hang the frames.

Either way works just fine! ;)


This little guy saw me taking pictures and so, of course, he wanted this picture taken too!

And then he tried to take over my photo shoot! Kids are fun, aren’t they?

Thanks for stopping by today!

    I am so glad you shared these!! I bought 6 black frames for a gallery wall recently but will now be painting them before I hang them up! The last thing our living room needs is more dark colors (we have brown leather furniture and wood floors). I can relate to the difference hanging pictures up makes – we moved in early December and are slowly getting things up on the walls. It’s a small thing that sure makes it feel more like our home. :)

    I’m in love with the colors. I actually have that same rug too! Want to try this in my basement since the walls are light. My living room is bright yellow right now!

    Well, I for one [I’m sure there’s 100’s more fans], love your photo wall! What size are the frames? do they hold 4×6 or 5×7 photo? did they come painted? Thanks a bunch :)

      Thank you, KimberlyRae! The frames are 11×14 size with a matte so my actual pictures are 8×10 size. Yes, they came painted in those colors. They are from Hobby Lobby :) Hope that helps! Thanks for stopping by!
