Portraits for Grandparents

Portraits are a powerful way to capture a moment in time and hold on to it forever. They provide a window into the past, allowing us to revisit a moment or a person long after they are gone. While death may be a difficult subject to discuss, it’s an inevitable part of life. When we lose someone we love, holding on to their memory becomes even more important. Portraits are a tangible reminder of those we’ve lost, a way to keep their memory alive and honour their life.

For many of us, our parents are the people who have been with us since the beginning. They are the ones who raised us, taught us right from wrong, and supported us through thick and thin. As we grow older, we often take for granted the time we have with them, assuming they will always be there. But the reality is that we never know when our time with them will come to an end. Having a beautiful, recent portrait of our parents can be a powerful way to remember them and connect to their memory.

A portrait with our parents is more than just a snapshot. It’s a way to capture their essence, their personality, and their spirit. When we look at a portrait of our parents, we can see the love and care that they poured into our lives. We can see the wisdom and guidance they offered, and the sacrifices they made for our sake. A portrait is a way to freeze time and hold on to a moment of connection and love.

Of course, portraits aren’t just for those who have passed away. They are also a way to celebrate the people we love and cherish in the present moment. Portraits are a powerful way to hold on to the people we love, both in life and in memory. They are a tangible reminder of the love, connection, and bond we share with those who are most important to us. Having a beautiful, recent portrait of our parents or other loved ones can be a way to keep their memory alive and honour their legacy.

I believe in the importance of these portraits so much that I don’t charge a session fee for them.
