One of the nice things about creating a painting is that I can meld several photographs into one piece — and it looks totally natural. This painting was based on several photographs that we took during Yara’s newborn portrait session (see the blog post with some of our favorite newborn photos of Yara!). It took me several versions of the painting to get things exactly the way I was envisioning, but that’s why I do this. Because when all the pieces finally fall into place, it looks amazing. Here’s the final painted portrait of Yara with her dad.
If you’d like to learn more about commissioning a painting from an existing photograph, or from a portrait we create during your next portrait session with me, get in touch! I’d love to talk with you about how the process works and help create a family heirloom that matches your lifestyle and vision. Contact the studio via our web form or call 734-424-0472 today!
