A New (to us) Frame Craftsman

by & filed under Portraiture.

Over the years I have passionately curated a collection of frames that tick off three important boxes. I love them, they will protect and complement Mac’s images well, and that they will showcase beautifully in our clients home with the right amount of sophistication and elegance. 

Currently, we carry frames from approximately five companies, and just last week I had the opportunity to visit a new (to us) company in Queens that is very special. The owner was kind enough to walk me around, and share their frame making process from start to finish. The details blew me away — hand carving, gold leafing, — 7 layers of workmanship to create one single frame. It was heartwarming and inspiring to see these talented craftsmen and craftswomen at work.

We are excited to add to our frame collections, and while they will not be least expensive of our offerings, I do plan to add a few styles you will love. Stay tuned…

An Adorable Valentine’s Day Craft to Make with your Little Ones

by & filed under Portraiture.

Looking for a fun and engaging craft to make with your litle ones this Valentine’s Day? We found this cute little caterpillar card on Pinterest! It only requires cardstock (or construction paper!) some finger paint and a set of googly eyes, and the end result is an adorable card you can share with your family or friends!

It’s simple and adorable, and easy enough to do with even the littlest ones. We found this one, here.  Happy Valentine’s Day!
