As a Catholic Mom of a second grader May means First Holy Communion. The month of May could also mean Mother's Day, prom and the start of graduation season but to me - First Communion.
Besides the actual event this means, a party, cake and a new suit for my kid. It also means portraits, in their First Communion outfit and usually something angelic looking. If you follow me on pinterest I am certain you know all of this already.
I really wanted to do something special for my son's portraits and I did not want him to have the stale, boring shots that I had when it was my big day. I take that back, I wanted those but also something fun and personalized. Luckily, I married a photographer. Luckier still, Printcopia reached out to me with an opportunity to not only have a canvas print provided to me for free to review but they are also providing one to giveaway to one lucky reader!
To be honest, I had never heard of Printcopia prior to them contacting me but I was instantly blown away by their clean and easy to maneuver site. It's not over run with products and other services. It is simply about the prints and all the different ways you can get your photo made into a piece of artwork.
The whole process is done in four easy steps and you can also use photos by linking directly to your account. The photo above is the cover photo of my personal Facebook page.
Once you have selected a size you move on to either uploading a photo or grabbing it from Instagram or Facebook. I must say that this is the hardest step.
The Husband did a fantastic job on the photographs if I do say so myself. He has done First Communion pictures before but they were more portraiture looking with a stark backdrop and that was what I didn't want for these pictures. I knew what I wanted and he took my ideas and worked his magic.
All though the process took no time, it did take
Speaking of the final product... I went with this image of our darling Communicant.
And it turned out like this...
The picture I took of the canvas print does not do it justice. It turned out so well and I can't wait to hang it up in our living room.
I highly suggest following Printcopia on Facebook and on Twitter because they have some fantastic deals!
And, as promised, the giveaway via rafflecopter!
