My New Family Portrait

I had a friend come to the studio and photograph me with Zack and Emma(14 and 10 years old). As you can see it is a beautiful portrait. When I finished canvassing the print I put it into the frame and placed it in the main entry to the studio. I was over come. It is such an amazing feeling to look at the portrait and feel that lump in the throat. Too see me with my kids, they are so fantastic, it is very emotional. Even now in writing this I miss them :).

It is these feeling that I want all people to have. I always compare a wall portrait to a piece of furniture. Well I have never felt this way when looking at my new sofa. My wish for every one is to have these same feelings as well. My kids will change, I will just get a bit grayer, and we will get another portrait in the future. I will never be able to have one with them looking like this again, they grow and mature way to fast. Come by the studio and have a look before I take it home.

Winter White portraits

Here are some of my favorite images from our Winter White sale. Lots of fun was had by all! I love using the chair, I've had it for almost 2 years and never brought it into the studio. What a great way to keep some one in one place for more than 27 seconds:).
Let me know what you think.
