OK, I know 'tis the season' is over... but I'm finally getting my Tara Whitney pictures on display and it feels like Christmas! I am so SO happy we took some time out of our family vacation in California last summer to have a session with her! We will have these memories forever. FOREVER! Think about that. Before our Tara session, we'd never had a REAL family photo shoot. I always figured I could set up our family pictures and have someone else hit the shutter. Or, I'd set the camera up on a tripod and use the self timer. Listen up fellow photographers... it's not the same! Being a client was the best thing I could have done for myself as a professional. Preparing for the session was an eye-opening experience. Looking into the lens from the other side was humbling. Anticipating the results was like waiting for a big delivery from Amazon! But seeing my family through the eyes of another was the real gift. I never knew we looked like that. It made me appreciate us. It helped me to really SEE. Now, I get to look at these everyday and its like happiness is splashed all over my walls! This gallery wrap canvas is 60x40... yes, that's 5 feet folks!
I think this is my favorite picture of Grant ever. This gallery wrap canvas is 16x24.
This family picture is a 16x20. It's in an Amy frame. My friend Amy Blanchard makes frames in Louisiana. I have been looking for the right thing for this frame for 2 years! I love how Tara shot this vertically but she has us arranged horizontally. She's crazy creative like that! So, I took a horizontal picture of it just to mess with your head :)
These are 11x14s on easels. I have 4 pictures stacked on each easel and the kids switch them out all the time. They love to put the pictures of themselves in front (of course!).
