Little Boy In A Big Picture

Little Boy In A Big Picture

The time for Little Man to leave nursery and start ‘big school’ is drawing nearer and nearer. This Thursday will see him leave the nursery gates for the last time and kiss goodbye to the place he first learned about independence. He was such a shy little soul when he first went there. Three years old and really not wanting to leave Mummy behind. Nineteen months later and he has grown into something quite unbelievable. A picture of happiness at nursery. Someone I am very proud of.

Just a few weeks ago, Little Man had his first ever official nursery photographs taken. He missed out last year because we were on holiday, but this year I was over the moon when we got to get some photos to mark his time at such a lovely nursery.

I was so pleased with the results that as with any professional photographs, I couldn’t choose just one. I ended up buying the package that gave me all three. I mean how can you possibly choose one picture when they are all so beautiful?!

I was so chuffed with them when they arrived and even more pleased when I was contacted by Hello Canvas asking me if I would like to work with them. What perfect timing.

Hello Canvas is an online store and are the largest producer of can­vas prints in the United Kingdom and throughout Europe!

The name is quite deceiving because they don’t only produce prints on canvas but also on metal, wood, phone cases and in frames. And this is where the Little Boy In A Big Picture comes in.

I had this beautiful image of my Little Man blown up to 60 x 80 cm and placed in a classic black frame. I am over the absolute moon with the results.

We have so many pictures of the little one in our living room, this one is going to hang on the wall in our stairwell. We have the perfect space for it. I am sure he will love seeing it every day when he walks down stairs in ten years time!

The ordering process was super easy with Hello Canvas and the delivery time was very impressive. It took less than a week for this beauty to arrive. I couldn’t recommend them enough.

Now I just need to persuade the husband to somehow get it on the wall. Above the stairs! Where there is a will there’s a way!

How do you have your child’s school or nursery pictures printed? Would you consider them on metal or wood? Let me know in the comments.

    What a gorgeous, happy photo! I’m a sucker for photo packages too – they’re just so cute. Every year I say, “I’m just going to get 1 photo this time” and every time I crumble! Hahaha. #triumphanttales

    What a lovely little boy, and the frame looks great! I take hundreds of pictures of my kids but never quite manage to hang any on the walls,mostly because of the hassle of ordering prints and finding the right frame for them. Now I know what to do next time. Thanks! x

    #triumphanttales we can sob on twitter together next week. I’ve never bought a nursery photo as they’ve never been amazing BUT I was thrilled with his class photo. It’s gorgeous – also hoping the new big boy school photo will be an amazing Christmas present for everyone we know lol

      I feel your pain. Last day at nursery for us today. All the feels!!

  17. 31st August 2017 / 10:50 pm

    all the kids school photos are in a box in a wardrobe, it’s only been in recent years that i’ve dug out random photos and displayed them. I’m not a big fan of formal photos and much prefer random shots #triumphanttales

      This picture is so much less formal than any school photo I’ve seen before! I love how he’s captured him naturally.

  18. 1st September 2017 / 8:23 am

    What a gorgeous photo of him. I don’t blame you wanting to get lots! The frame is perfect too. I would consider prints on metal and wood but perhaps need to see examples first x

    Oh what a gorgeous photo! We bought a few of the ones from Zach’s final shoot – as they let Oscar take part too! Photos are such an important thing. We recently went for a photoshoot and yesterday spent a shocking amount of money on some of them!! Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday
