You know you want your Hall of Fame to display family photos, which is great, to begin with, but for the space to look its best, you should consider holding on to a theme to help relate the images in the gallery as though they are all in one more substantial piece of art.

- Photos that were all taken at the one single photo shoot or event
- Wedding photos from different weddings
- Candid photos
- Family photos that are all captured outdoors
- A variety of pictures from different times, even if they span over a decade or more, pulled together by printing them all in greyscale.

Variety of sizes is excellent too, but the frames then will have to resemble each other.
If the family photos you’re printing are of a parallel theme, you can get creative with the products you print them on, mixing and matching photo on canvas prints with metal prints, acrylic prints with wood prints, or whatever else you fall in love with.

When planning a gallery wall, keep two things in mind:
1. Your collection of art is one significant part of a story or theme.
2. There's an imaginary vertical line going down the center of the wall.
Now, place your art evenly on either side of the vertical line to create visual balance.
If your gallery wall includes mixed print sizes, position the most significant piece of art on the bottom-left of the wall. If the arrangement is balanced, then place this piece in the middle.
5. Do a Trial Run
Once you’ve prepared the design of your space and have decided on the family photos and prints that you want to build your Hall of Canvas with, do a trial run to make sure you’re content with it.
Cut craft paper to the size of your artwork and then use painter’s tape to place the paper on the wall area where you plan to mount your photos.
If you don’t have paper large enough to do this, you can also create a frame around the craft paper by just using painter’s tape. Leave it on the wall for a while and revisit it a couple of hours later to assure you still like your formulation.
