Custom Christmas Photo Sessions Guelph
Fun, whimsical portrait art with YOUR family!
The number of variations within this style are almost unlimited and depend entirely upon who your family is and what you do for fun! Together we talk about what makes your family, YOUR family and start to hone in on creating an heirloom portrait which captures who you are at this time in your lives. You’ve heard the expression, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Your Wall Art will tell your story in one powerful painted portrait.
These photographic sessions use the “green screen” concept to allow the Portrait Artist, Kirk, the most flexibility while being able to concentrate on the concept you choose. As family photographers for over 25 years, Kirk’s style has grown. Now the photography is only another step in the creative process. Once you leave the studio Kirk starts compiling and compositing your art piece. It takes many hours to put it together so it’s perfect and then to add the paint strokes by hand to finish it off.
Winter can be magical! It covers up much of what we don’t want to see and leaves out imagination to fill it in. And of course if you’re an outdoorsy family or your children love the snow then there are so many fun activities you can choose for your painting. You can have that fun and magic captured and transformed into pieces of art. Imagery you will gaze upon lovingly and proudly over your morning coffee. As your family grows and eventually moves on you will still have these wonderful printed artworks that require no screens or electricity – just your own eyes (and a little daylight!).
When it comes to the scenery, I have several background options for you to choose from. You can also add a variety of nature’s little critters and maybe even “your” cottage! Together with our family photographers we will plan and design a painting which depicts who your family is at this time in your lives. Pets come and go. Children grow up and start families of their own. Having this painting created NOW ensures you will always have them close to your heart. Memories fade as we move on with our lives but these painted portraits will not. They will become a family heirloom.
As you can probably see from the examples on this page – the possibilities are endless. Included with every session is a planning and design meeting so we can talk about your family and do a little brainstorming to customize your portrait to you. The more we do before the first photograph is taken the better the results we be. From clothing colours and style to the format of your portrait. We will discuss sizes and finishes like canvas, rag paper, metal. This eliminates most of the unknown for you. AND ensures you get exactly what you want!
