Everyone likes to receive digital images from their family photographer, but did you know you’ll love the Canvas Wraps that are offered. Tamieka Smith Photography is proud to design and offer professional museum quality gallery wrapped canvases. Each canvas is Museum quality canvas and is a stunning way to display your family’s favorite portraits in your home. They are the perfect décor for your home because it not just art…it’s your family.
Did you know I can design a cluster of different gallery wraps to showcase your family in your home or office? Yes, the clusters range from a set of three gallery wraps up to nine Canvases or more. I offer up to 13 different configurations. Each canvas comes standard on a 1 ½ inch stretcher frame but may be upgraded to a 2 ½ inch stretcher frame. Gallery Wraps are delivered ready to hang with sawtooth brackets for 20x24 and smaller sizes and wire hangers for 20x30 and larger sizes. In addition, your Canvas may be framed, but is not necessary. Canvas sizes start at 8x10 up to 34x54 inches. Custom sizes are also available. Furthermore, non-glare museum glass may be added to framed canvases. Please note: Framed Canvases are an upgrade.
The canvases have archival certification. It is a 400 gsm white poly-cotton blend matte canvas that meets the archival standards for pH and lightfastness. The Canvas is water resistant and has a heavy, flexible weave. They also include a protective coating with a semi-gloss finish. The protective coating allows you to use a soft cloth or feather duster to wipe the dust from your beautiful canvas. There’s no need for abrasive cleaning products. Specifically designed for high-end photography, this canvas utilizes “Chromata White” optical brightener additive-free and Fluorescent Whitening agent-free breakthrough technology. “Chromata White” gives the end-user the most stable platform on which to print photographs without the color shift issues inherent on other canvases. Optical Brighteners can compromise the attainment of true color, profiling accuracy, and inevitably deteriorate and yellow over time. It gives your canvas wrap a guaranteed 100+ years of display life.
Your canvas may also have brush strokes added (upgrade). The main advantage of adding brush strokes to your canvas is it will give the canvas texture that will make it seem as if your photograph was hand painted by a professional painter. Family portraits standout tremendously after getting the brush stroke canvas treatment, since it is a piece of art.
So, if you are wanting significant art for your home or office, purchase a canvas wrap. It will make a meaningful statement in whatever room you decide to place it in. Once your art piece is hung, you will know it was the best decision because it’s easy to take care of and display.

Hello, I'm Tamieka, owner of Tamieka Smith Photography. I would love to help you plan your family's sunset portraits in Northern Virginia (or surrounding area) or photograph your military ceremony — possibly both. Working with families and military members is my specialty. I hope you'll look at my recent work and all that’s available for you.
