I want to create a small work of art to commemorate the arrival of our precious little ones. Wouldn’t this be perfect in the master bedroom or in the child’s room. We recall to mind these magical moments…www.patriciagagnephoto.com
One of the nicest things happened before Christmas… A gentleman came by wanting a truly beautiful gift for his girlfriend – a portrait of her and her children. The love behind the offering was so sincere – I loved creating this portrait. What about those shoe laces??!!
This is a very exciting time for me- the first edition of my magazine Family Portraiture in the Home is about to be published. Families, children, dancers- all the subjects I love are featured. photography as art in the home is a captivating subject. As a matter of fact, I am so taken with this work that I have already started working on the 2012 edition. Here is the first new room – a beautiful and practical playroom for their girls. Looking at the portrait, you can imagine how many happy moments these children have shared in this room and elsewhere!
PS If you would like a copy of the magazine, I’ll send you one if you promise to drop it off in your favorite reception room after you enjoy it!
This beautiful woman seems special to me – portraiture from this period is usually so cold. In fact, mostly people look pretty miserable. But not here – look at the character shining through this portrait. It was my privilege to restore it.
Everyone wants to put his best foot forward, especially when it comes to finding that romantic interest. I love doing sittings for Match and other online sites. It takes about an hour and a half and, voila, you have a CD for use online or anywhere!
When a client called and asked me to take an old photo from the 1960’s and make it into a painted portrait, I jumped at the challenge. As you can see, the background of the original as well as the quality of the print presented serious issues. The client told me how this was her favorite picture of her husband - how much it meant to her. I was impressed with the feeling behind the request and set to work determined to create a portrait worthy of having a place as a wall portrait. One of the great things about being a family photographer is that there is a new challenge every day. It NEVER gets boring!
Here is another type of restoration. A beautiful painting damaged by time and who knows what else. An artist friend of mine asked me to work on this and we agreed it looks like new!
