Look who’s in Pregnancy and Newborn magazine this month! It’s me!!

Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine interviewed photographer Linnea Lenkus about the display of wall portraits considering that she specializes in wall art of families and babies.
Since I specialize in creating artistic and personal wall art I was asked by Pregnancy and Newborn for my take on wall art of babies and new families and how to present large portraits. I’ve been a professional photographer for 18 years now. My art consultants and I all know how life affirming it is to have incredible, artistic portraits of your family around with impact. I have many larger than life size portraits of my family and my babies around my home and everyone who enters is awestruck. “Wow,” they say, “I really like that.” It gets them thinking. It creates a positive energy.

An excerpt from the article:
“Wall art 101
Don’t know what to do with that beautiful oversized portrait of your newly expanded family? Linnea Lenkus, owner of Linnea Lenkus Fine Art Portrait Studios in Los Angeles, simplifies the art of displaying portraits in your home. ‘When determining where to display your pregnancy and newborn portraits as wall art, it’s important to think in terms of drawing in the viewer. I always ask people to take a look at their home and identify the wall that their eyes trail towards in a straight line from the entrance into that room. That is the wall that will likely have the most impact and therefore, should display the largest portrait. The “tunnel” or walkway to that wall should have slightly smaller portraits, depending on the viewer’s distance to the print, leading to the Mecca of portraits.'”

Linnea Lenkus specializes in creating wall art for families, babies, nudes and pregnancy.
