For Christmas last year, I delivered this gorgeous family portrait to Heather and her family. Before delivery, I made this video showing the various finished pieces.
I love creating family portraits for clients, and I think delivering and hanging these finished art pieces in their homes is my favorite part of the process. I love seeing everything come together and the client’s expressions and happiness with their new art pieces on the wall.
Studio family portraits work really well if you want a clean and contemporary look, and it’s an especially nice option during cold or bad weather. A warm studio full of custom lighting gear means a worry free environment for clients, regardless of the rain or snow outside. With a large changing room, bathroom, and big mirrors, you can fix hair, and even change outfits for different looks and options. The studio makes everything easy, especially if you have little kids.
This family portrait was extra special. Heather has five children of various ages and sizes. The older kids get, the harder it is to get everyone together. We wanted to take advantage of the time together and create something beautiful for her wall.
With some color and clothes consultations over the phone, Heather found some beautiful outfits for everyone that showed both variety, but also worked together artistically and cohesively. The resulting portrait is absolutely beautiful.
Our favorite for the fireplace mantle was this image above with everyone standing. It has a long and tall feel that matches the space where it’ll hang, but it also shows all the kids and their individual heights and sizes at this point in life.
The closer image below was chosen as a smaller portrait to go elsewhere in the home. I love the triangle design and the lovingness of all the kids, leaning in together.
We also did some various groupings as well, like these of Heather and her boys and girls alone as close ups, as well as the girls and boys alone standing.
These kids were so adorable and great in front of the camera. I love creating individual portraits of kids. These can be displayed together as sets in a wall collage, and then later each portrait can move into each child’s room.
We finished up the session with this gorgeous image of Heather.
