How To Photograph Your Space For Your Digital Wall Art Previews


Let’s take your walls from blank to brilliant!

Here at the Studio, we use a special program that allows us to create custom digital renderings & mockups of Wall Art pieces hanging in your space - this allows you to visualize & preview exactly how a Wall Art piece or Gallery will look in your home before you submit an order. It’s easy to experiment with different sizes, styles, & arrangements, & this system takes away any worries that we may have about a piece not fitting in with your decor, showing up as the wrong size, etc.

There are so many ways to display Wall Art - many people enjoy creating a gallery wall with a selection of multiple smaller framed images, while others prefer to display one large image as a highlight of the room. It’s important to use the spaces where you spend the most of your time to display the images you love!

So how do we create your custom Wall Art previews?
I’ll need a little help from you to get the ball rolling! All you need is your smartphone, a piece of white 8.5” x 11” printer paper, a small piece of tape, & about 5 minutes - read on for detailed instructions on how to easily photograph your space, & don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have.

take your walls from this…

…to this!

#1. Decide where you would like to display your wall art

Think about your favorite places in your home, office, or retail space - where you would like to display your memories?
Popular location choices for wall art include:

Bedrooms | Kitchens | Dining Rooms | Living Rooms | Entryways
Offices | Stairways | Bathrooms | Hallways

#2. Take a Photo of Your wall space with your smartphone

  1. Take a sheet of normal white printer paper (8.5” x 11”) & tape it horizontally to the wall where you would like to hang your art. Turn on any overhead lights in the room, open the curtains to let in some light, etc. - the brighter the space, the better.

  2. Take a Horizontal (Landscape) photo of the wall with your phone: stand square on to the wall if you can, & keep your phone as level & straight as possible.

  3. Get as much of the room as you can in the photo, try to include at least a sliver of ceiling & the floor; & your furniture when possible so that we can get the best sense of your decor & style.

  4. Repeat this process as many times as necessary for all of the walls you would like to hang art on!


#3. Send US Your Photos via text or email

Now that you’ve photographed your walls, send your photos to the Studio via text or email & we’ll get started on generating your wall art previews.

What happens next?

I’ll be showing you some sample rooms & renderings during your Image Purchasing Session - these will just be quick examples & ideas to inspire you so that you can easily envision Wall Art pieces for your home or office space. Once you send over the photos you took with your phone, we will recreate & reupload the wall art previews using the photos you provided so that you can see exactly how your wall art pieces would look in your space.


The program we use to create these digital renderings is able to generate the exact sizes needed for your Wall Art pieces based on the dimensions of the 8.5” x 11” printer paper hanging on the wall - super cool! During your Image Purchasing Session, we will review your collections together & make any desired changes to the styles & sizes of your Wall Art before you finalize your orders.

I’m excited to create beautiful wall art for you & your family!
