Family portraits, the fun way!

Untitled

I'm absolutely in love with these portraits of our family. We haven't had a frame-worthy photo of us taken in years, and I never get around printing the photos I take (pathetic, I know). So to have something so fun and unique painted just for our family feels like Christmas, Mother's Day and birthday all rolled in together. The details in these portraits are amazing, every stroke looks like a piece of art in its own. I love that I can stop by the portraits several times throughout the day, and discover some unique way that a curl or a pair of lips was painted in. Clayton is a truly talented artist with such a distinctive and fun style. He has a Facebook page here, and his wife Amy, who's also a dear friend of mine, wrote more about these portraits. Her blog is worth spending a few hours (ok, days) browsing ;)
