Children’s Heirloom Portraits

As a parent and grandparents we all know how quickly the days and years go by. We treasure the sweetness of our children/grandchildren when they are little–all their expressions: serious ones, shy ones, curious ones, and happy ones. These little expressions are so unique to each child, and it’s something I always wished I could bottle up and keep forever. The Vintage Vignette Heirloom Portrait is one way you can do just that. Your child’s expression frozen in time, displayed in the most elegant and refined of interior spaces. These children’s portraits are not meant to be stored on your phone, and simply scrolled through on occasion. They are certainly not meant to live as digital files. These are meant to be a part of the story of your home, just as heirloom portraits have been throughout history, framed on your walls, to enjoy for decades and generations to come. And before long these little faces will be big and grown, and they will come back home with a little one of their own on their hip, who will point and smile at their portrait. Remark over their expression. Be transported to another time, and remember the joys of their childhood. These pieces of art will stand the test of time, and bring more joy than you can imagine. I know we can never go back in time, but we can bring a little piece of the past with us.
