Our Story

“We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give.”
- Winston Churchill

When my son Brandon was born, he was the first grandchild in the family, so he received all the extra attention. As a baby, he was always getting dressed up for elaborate home photo shoots. He must have felt like a little celebrity with all the flashes and camera clicks :)

One of the things we ordered frequently were canvas prints from various companies. It’s safe to say the walls of our home were covered with these prints. Something I began to notice was how many times I would receive a canvas with quality problems. Either the print quality was poor or the wooden stretcher frames were warped. It always seemed to be something. One time after a canvas from one of the “big” name companies turned out poorly for a second time in a row, I thought to myself — “I can do better than this”. 

After doing some research, I purchased a professional grade large format printer and started making my own canvas prints. Soon after, friends and family were asking me to make canvas prints of their children and the idea for Love Laugh Giraffe was born. Being that we’re huge animal lovers, we also decided to introduce a line of baby animal art which is based on our original watercolor paintings by artist Sherry Daerr.

Our animal prints and canvas wraps are handcrafted in Colorado with the finest professional materials. Our Canvas Kids™ gallery wraps allow you to turn photos of your child into heirloom quality art. 

From the very beginning, I wanted Love Laugh Giraffe to be involved in helping children. We’ve partnered with Angel House which helps provide orphaned children in India with a safe place to call home. We donate 10% of our profits to this wonderful cause.

We’re passionate about what we do and feel fortunate and grateful to have customers that are helping to support our mission. Thank you for taking the time to visit us.
