Decorating with Portraits at Dunlap Portrait

My name is Tricia Dunlap, and you can see my occasional blog posts at the Dunlap Portrait Blog.  I love to decorate with portraits.   We all spend so much time in our homes, why wouldn’t we want to see our loved ones all around us?  In this first photograph, I love this family photo of our feet because it will always remind me when our kids were so small, just looking at the size of their little legs.  I keep this one in my kitchen and it always makes me smile! 


I don’t have a lot of wall space in my home, so I LOVE photo books and also photo boxes to keep loose photographs.  There is one photograph in my hallway (gold antique frame above) that was a present from my very creative mother-in-law and it really shows that “the sky is the limit” in this digital age.  She took a somewhat blurry photo, taken with a point and click and my daughter’s first dance recital and had it made into a painting!  WOW – what a treasure!!  In my opinion, it just goes to show that having the rights to the digital images when you hire a photographer is EVERYTHING so you can have the ability to create treasures that are very meaningful and personal – not to mention potential heirlooms for your family!

Thank you, Kristen, for this opportunity!  “Decorating with Portraits” is such a great way for us all to share!  Can’t wait to see what is posted the rest of the month!

{Tricia is my local photog buddy, and we are actually hanging out for the weekend at a photography retreat!  She has photographed my family as well as my friendship pics with my BFF’s (along with our friend Heather who is also with us on the retreat).  I also got to take the super FUN family pics for her last January (with Heather again) when she pulled a bed into a field and had a pillow fight.  You gotta CHECK IT OUT!  I just love Tricia, and the heart and soul that she puts into her work .  I LOVE how she has her portraits on easels in her home, and the books laid out to see–you can’t help but want to flip through them when you are in her home (I know I can’t!).  Thanks Tricia, you are the best!}

    I would have never thought to put a picture on the kitchen counter, but it adds such a nice touch to the area.

  3. I also love the idea of putting a picture in the kitchen! That seems to be the place where I spend a lot of time so it would be fun to have a sweet picture in there to put a smile on my face. :) Tricia, beautiful home and beautiful pictures.
