Why A Family Portrait Is The Best Present You Can Give

It's that time of year again...that shopping time of year. There are practical gifts and then there are the meaningful ones. That pivotal piece in a collector's dreams, that special necklace she's been dropping hints about, the memories that make a house a home...and nothing captures a memory than bringing the family together for a portrait that not only decorates the home but stops time right in it's tracks.

In this age of cell phone captures the artistry of the formal portrait is often forgotten, but set in the premiere placing of the home it can become the focal point that is most beloved.

Gifting portraits does not have to be pricey. While parents will certainly want a current wall art canvas, other family members will love having an 11x14 or even 8x10 mantel piece. 5x7 Holiday Cards with your favorite family photo printed bleed edge style fits perfectly in a standard frame for your friends to enjoy all year around.

Giving portraits doesn't have to break the bank, but like the old saying goes...they're priceless.
Not all portraits are meant to be all smiles...sometimes introspective tells more of the family dynamics than toothy grins.  Copyright Marcia Mauskopf 2014
