Last summer, I decided to take Hannah out for a little photo session.
She is in her last year of middle school and I know this is such a precious time.
The next few years are going to fly by!
So we headed out and shot some pictures at some nearby locations.
There were several that I really liked- I had her bring her cello for a few of the photos, and we also went out to a field to get that dreamy, late summer day glow.
I'm still very much a novice photographer, but I was happy with what we got.
And of course, like many of you, we had the best of intentions of getting several printed out and sent out as Christmas gifts for family, but with busy schedules, the photos just sat on the computer.
A couple weeks ago, I got an email from Canvas Pop, asking if I'd like to try them out for a canvas print.
Yes!! Perfect timing!
Because I had just been thinking, I better get going on getting some of these developed, or we'll never see them besides on the computer screen!
Our beautiful canvas arrived yesterday, and I was so happy with how it turned out.
My beautiful girl, just being her.
It was packaged really well, and the print was great quality.
Like I said, since I am still learning so much about my camera, I was worried that seeing it blown up on a large scale might show a lot of blurriness or pixelation.
The quality was fantastic. I was truly so impressed.
Canvas Pop advertises on their website that they can take photos directly imported from Facebook or Instagram and make them into beautiful canvas prints.
Any size, any resolution!
So if you're the type who has lots of great photos- only on your mobile phone, you can still send it in and get a great looking canvas!
I'm already talking to my mother in law about getting some old family photos (black and white) to add to our gallery wall.
Our canvas is beautifully wrapped and has a black edge.
It came with a wire hanger mounted on the back, and with an extra hanger hardware for installation.
The turnaround time was pretty quick- I think from the time I sent in my photo to the time it arrived on our doorstep was just about two weeks.
The other part I liked about the Canvas Pop service is that the canvas print looks exactly like what I sent them. I have friends who have done prints elsewhere, and when they've gotten them back they were darker or more saturated in color than the original.
Not the case here!
I'm pretty choosy about the companies that I work with on giveaways and reviews, and if you've followed me for any length of time, you know I don't do a lot of them for that reason!
Another reason I said yes to this review and giveaway is that they have a 100% guarantee you'll love it!
So there's no worries.
With Mother's Day approaching, I'm sure lots of you can think of a mom who would love a canvas print!
