Review: Canvas Factory

The first few days after your baby is born are such a whirlwind. While you’re busy adjusting to the new little life you’ve created, they’ve already begun changing and growing.

That’s why having photos of your newborn taken in the first week is so important. We were so fortunate to work with Hidden Jem Photography out of Stony Plain. Jamie has worked with our Mommy Connections programs in the past and specializes in newborn photography. She is so creative and ridiculously talented, so it was no surprise that our photos were exactly what we had hoped.

The perfect way to finish any nursery is with a beautiful canvas of your beautiful new baby. There are a lot of options available, but we used The Canvas Factory. The website was very user friendly. Once you upload your photo, you’re able to edit, size and customize your canvas. Shipping was quick, and it only took 6 days for us to receive our canvas. The colors were bright and we were happy with the quality of the canvas. The website also offers metal prints and acrylic glass prints. If you’re feeling inspired, you can create collages or split canvas right from the website. If you’re looking for a way to display images in your home, look no further than
