"If you want to change the world, go home and love your family."- Mother Teresa
I am passionate about family portraits because I truly believe they can change the world. The mental health of our youth is under attack due to the impermanence of social media. Our kids are trying to feel seen in a social media world that is intended for short term reaction. Having family portraits in the home is one of the best antidotes to being a teen these days. I feel when kids walk in their homes and see a beautifully displayed portrait of themselves it saturates their subconscious with the message that they are loved and their presence matters. Creating a home environment that makes our children feel safe, loved and valued is noble and essential. A house isn't a home until it can reflect the love that grows inside. The love we have for our families takes up the biggest part of our heart and needs to be celebrated on our walls for everyone to enjoy.
