We tend to prefer candid photography over studio portraits, especially when it comes to children. These digital portrait collages by LA-based artist Emily Wagner are a fun way to highlight the energy of your favorite photo of your favorite kid.

According to Emily, the process of converting your favorite photo into a piece of graphic art is simple:

You email me 1-5 great photos to choose from, you pick a background from 10 amazing papers, I trick out your photo, print it and before you know it... a supercool portrait cutout is made out of archival ink on archival paper, collaged onto the background of your choice and voila! You have a great piece of portrait art ready to be framed and mailed to you in no time!

Prices start at $160 for an 8x10 print. See Emily's website for more information.

And if you're in LA and want to learn Emily's portrait collage technique firsthand, she has upcoming workshops on August 16th and 19th.
