I'm really proud of of my latest creation. I handpainted this beautiful Vanity fair style backdrop in my garage. It was a huge project and the artist and experimenter in me adored every minute. A special thanks to my amazing husband who helped a lot and lent me his garage floor for this project. As soon as it dried I HAD to try it out. So I grabbed my girls who happily (with bribes) agreed to let me photograph (torture) them in my Littlestown studio.
The results were the following gorgeousness!
Now it may look like the sweet innocent lovelies would never argue or disagree, but I am here to tell you that they are a very difficult bunch to get smiling together ALL AT THE SAME TIME. A lot of candy bribery was involved here and a great deal of patience, BUT we managed to get some really beautiful portraits of them. One is now hanging on my family room wall printed on a huge beautiful canvas.
The really amazing thing about this photoshoot was that we created a classic yet modern portrait that has become a legacy piece in our home. They will never be this age again. As they rapidly grow towards adulthood we've frozen a golden age in their youth for all time. It actually brings tears to my eyes. Whenever they see this hanging in a place of importrance in our home they know two things:
1: is that they are extremely valuable and important to us.
2: Is that they have each other. They have connection. They have unconditional love.
The message this sends to them is huge.
They are our legacy and the message is loud and clear in the middle of our home hanging on our wall for everyone to see.
