Most families need a reason for a portrait, and this couple was celebrating 50 years of marriage! What a great way to celebrate the family you’ve created. Consultations are a must with every family portrait. First we have to decide if you’re formal or a casual family. Then clothing and colour options. If you’re going to hang a family portrait you might as well co-ordinate the clothing colour with the room. This family wanted something a little more formal in shades of blue. I always request families to stay away from patterns, flowers, and stripes as I prefer the focus to be on faces not clothing. The mom is the only one in pattern and the focus is right on her in them middle. I think the end results turned out great! Congratulations again to this beautiful family.
