I love that our wedding announcement is now a framed portrait on our wall; it's such a beautiful way to preserve that moment in time.
If I could wrangle a little time out of Clay I'd try to convince him to do an updated family portrait (since there are now four of us!) that we could print small cards of to send out as Christmas cards (um, and also baby announcements since we haven't quite gotten around to that either...).
I love how happy this painting is! The new baby's name, weight and birthdate will be painted on a separate piece of paper and then digitally added to the pink ribbon for the one they print for baby announcements. Then he'll either leave the ribbon plain or paint their family name on it for the actual painting that will be framed.
If you're looking for a special Christmas present this year, perhaps a family portrait is just the thing!
