Larger than Life

OK, so raise your hand if you have itty bitty children and have gotten them to sit still and smile long enough for a photographer to snap the perfect family portrait?

crickets.

chirp.

chirp

hello? hello? this thing on? tap. tap.

OK, now clap your hands if you have tried the above only to have your kids throw themselves down on the ground, run away, and pull each other's hair.

Which is why I really don't do family portraits like that. I don't like em.

What I really like is when a series of images tells a story. A story about a family.

A little girl looking at her dad adoringly, because after all, he is the biggest, toughest, most handsome man in the whole wide world right? And the dad staring down at this beautiful blond human being that he never ever knew how much he would love until she came into the world.

A family's story is made up, not just of one picture, but of moments. Snippets in time.   The serious moments. The silly moments. The "I have messy hair because I'm spinning my daughter around in circles and I don't care" moments.  And parents- here's a newsflash- you don't get family pictures done for yourself. Ahhhh- you may think right now you do... but when it really comes down to it- you get them done for your kids. It's so easy to forget things when you are four years old. But the pictures are there to tell the story.

Which is why I love this new product.  A series of images that reads like a chapter of a family's story.

Now THIS people, is a family portrait.

larger than life canvas example

It's designed to be big- 30"x40" to be exact. It can be a mounted print, canvas on matboard, or gallery wrapped canvas (which would allow the text on the side).  Can you imagine having one of these babies from when your parents were little? What an awesome heirloom!
