Personalized Family Portrait
This doesn’t mean that your family has to sit for hours and pay a small fortune. There are many other ways to create a family portrait. For example, a personalized print is fun as everyone can choose their hair, clothes, skin tone, and everything else that reflects the way they look. You can also frame a family photo or make a collage. Frame it the way you like, add stickers or inspirational quotes; the choices are endless. If you’re more tech savvy than crafty, consider uploading your favorite pictures to digital photo frames instead.
