*M* Family :: Photo Shoot Preview

I cannot wait to see the gifts & talents emerge from these little ones as they are surrounded by parents, grandparents & extended family with such diverse creativity.

Baby brother is one month old.  Mom looks uh-maz-ing!  Sister is a joy to be around.  Dad seems so proud.

I enjoyed hanging out with you, *M* Family!!  Hope you like your preview…

Jupiter Beach :: Photo Shoot Preview

We recently returned to North Carolina after our two week trip down to South Florida.  We enjoyed spending time with family & friends, drinking in the sunshine, & managed to sneak in a couple of photo shoots too.

This session took place at Jupiter Beach, FL first thing in the morning…such a beautiful day.

I’m loving the setting… is it a field of wheat? Or a farm somewhere nearby? It feels very peaceful and rural.

Beautiful location… even more beautiful model! Love it!

Gallery wrapped canvases are an absolutely stunning way to showcase your favorite photo or collection of photos from a session.

We’ve done our homework and are proud to offer these heirloom-quality fine art canvases to our clients.  Images are printed onto a high quality archival canvas and carefully stretched over a 1-1/2 inch thick wooden framing bar with the image continuing around the sides of the frame.  They arrive ready to hang & enjoy.  They’re classy & beautiful and truly are a work of art!

The corners are tight, neat, & precise.  Hardware is already installed, so it is ready to hang the moment you take it home.

Whether resting on your mantle or arranged in a wall collection, gallery wrapped canvases are sure to add an element of warmth to your home.  Our goal is to create a breathtaking focal piece or collection for you to share in your home that reflects who you are and what you are about.  As an added complimentary service from [rik-see] photography, we will be happy to digitally create a stunning wall collection for you to visualize before you purchase, customized based on the wall space available in your home.
