Creating a beautiful Christmas card was the beginning…..The day of the camera study, the weather was not cooperative and I was able to take only one image before the thunder, lightning and heavy rain began. Feeling sure it was a wash (pun intended) by everyone except me, we went home. As you can see, the portrait is beautiful and one is all we needed. Christmas cards were ordered and Erin felt this portrait hanging above their bed would be amazing. Of course, she wanted to talk to her husband, Jon, about it to make sure he was onboard. Surprisingly, he told her not right now. She couldn’t quite understand why he didn’t agree but it was what it was. Fast forward to right before Christmas. Jon contacted us and he wanted the portrait for Erin as a gift and wanted it as a surprise!!!! Since our mixed media portraits take 8-10 weeks to complete, we created a presentation for him, which he could give her on Christmas morning. It was perfect! She was completely surprised and he quickly became "Husband of the Year". The portrait now hangs beautifully above their bed.
