CREATING PERSONALIZED ART FOR THE HOME
As a photographer, it probably seems sort of counterintuitive that I don’t have tons of photos of my family displayed all over my home.  It’s not that I don’t love displaying my kids’  portraits — I actually believe in its importance deeply.
I have many gorgeous, happy smiling images of my kids, beautifully preserved in fine leather albums.

But on the walls of my home, I simply prefer fine art pieces. To me, it’s like living within a story.
This might sound rather unsentimental as an interior design choice for a parent, but it’s actually quite the contrary.
Fine art moves me — especially when it’s a piece I commission of my own family.

Recently, we experienced the death of a young family member. We felt a range of emotions from sadness, to anger, to fear, to acceptance, to peace and possibilities.  I was inspired to create a piece that helped us deal with this loss, which is featured above in “Soldier’s Son”. Whenever my family sees this, it eulogizes a beautiful person and it gives us peace, joy and a bit of closure.
It’s art.

Art is an expression of oneself.
Art tells the stories we cannot tell.
Art makes sense of things when nothing else makes sense.
Art brings immeasurable joy.
Art brings acceptance.
Art heals.
Art brings in the light and gives it a shape.
Art never apologizes, but it always forgives.
Art does things for us that we cannot do for ourselves.
Art can outlive us all.
Art preserves.

Natalie and I have each begun a personal journey to create this highly personal form of family storytelling in each of our homes.
We shoot with a purpose and a tale to tell.
We convey  our family history in some extraordinary way, so that our children and their children will be able to retell it. And that’s what makes up a legacy.

More than beautiful pictures, these museum-quality, archival mounted images are there to make us feel deeply… and daily.

Do you have a story to tell? We can help you visualize and capture your family’s story in fine art. Give us a call. There’s a legacy waiting to be created!

Cate & Natalie
