Growing up our family never had any professional photography pictures taken.
Rather than commission a pro photographer, my father went and bought a second hand camera and tripod and created our family images himself. The pictures where never enlarged or put in frames. Instead they were all shoved in a desk drawer and collected dust.
What makes this image exceptionally special to me is that it was done on location where my folks lived. I have many memories of spending holidays with my family in that house. My mother bought that grandfather clock with gift money that her Aunt had given her.
Everything in the above picture is gone except for me! The mirror behind my Dad and the clock were sold when my parents moved to a new house prior to my Dad's passing. The house was torn down 4 years ago! Yet I have this beautifully framed portrait on my wall to remember my Dad by. Had I'd never become a professional photographer, I'd never have thought to have taken a special image of just my Dad and I. I'm glad I decided to create the image before it was too late. Trust me. There is never a good time to do a family portrait. Now is always the best time, is my recommendation.
I would be thrilled to tell your family story though photographic art and create a legacy that you can remember your family by too!
This is what I do now and I promise I will do my best to make your family portraits as wonderful and heartfelt creations as the ones I have for my own family.
I want to create art for your home that just happens to be your family!
