Heirloom Portraits

For those of you who are not familiar with my background....I was a black and white film only girl...until several years ago. That is when I added digital capture to my skill set. I must say, I was smitten. It is not only the immediate gratification of the image capture, but the endless image enhancements available in photoshop. Here is an image I took several years ago now. I love the expression on this child's face. Through some minor enhancement, the total feeling of the image changed. I thought the original image was beautiful...but with the enhancement (done by a master printer and photoshop guru (no, not me!), the image is so much more powerful. I consider this image an Heirloom portrait. It has a more formal feel, and a vintage look. This image in a beautiful ornate frame will make a lasting keepsake, for generations to come.

This is my daughter Giuliana. She'll be 10 in December, wow how time fly's. You'd be amazed at how she looks today. Thank you for choosing us. Your portrait you did of her with the pearls still hangs on our wall.
