Family Holiday Portraits

Recently the Flurry family came into the studio for their family holiday photos. Erin and Jason brought dressy clothes and casual clothes for their session. There was a lot of activity when it was time to change clothes – sometimes the kids were up for it, sometimes not so much. However, at the end of the day, we all had a really good time and got lots of photos they will proudly display in their home as well as give as gifts to those who love them.

I asked Erin to record a testimonial to go along with the photos from their session. I am so touched by her heartwarming comments! Please take a minute to watch the video. It’s hard to explain how important it is to hear how my clients (who quickly become friends) feel about their experience in the studio as well as their final products.

In my studio, each purchased print comes with its corresponding digital file. I provide a print so you know how the image is supposed to look when printed. I also provide suggestions on getting good quality products geared to the consumer. Erin and Jason’s home is filled with photographs of their family. It has been proven that children who grow up surrounded by photographs of their family have higher self esteem and a true sense of belonging. Jaxon and Hannah certainly have a head start!

Jaxon was a newborn when he first came to the studio, and now he is a big first grader. Hannah recently celebrated her second birthday, and it is still hard for me to believe how fast time has passed.

Just for fun, here are a couple of images where these children were quite a bit younger. This is one of Jaxon’s first visits with Santa in my studio.

This modern hand painted photograph was printed on canvas with brush strokes…it looks like an oil painting!

One of the greatest joys of running my studio is having relationships with my clients that last over the years. I love being “Aunt Gretchen” to the children. Sometimes the parents will even ask my advice on raising kids – after all, mine are 28 and 24. As the saying goes, “I’ve been there, done that”!
