Finley – 6 months
Finley came to visit the new studio for 6 month sitting portraits with her big brother Nolin. They were frequent flyers at my home studio but this was his first visit to Bank Street. He was so excited to see his portrait on the wall in my office and kept checking on it while he was here.
You read time and time again about how family portraits boost the self esteem of children. It gives them an identity, confirms their place in the family and makes them feel like they belong.
“Displaying photos prominently in the home sends the message that our family and those in it are important to one another, and we honor the memories we have experienced,“ says Cathy Lander-Goldberg, a licensed clinical social worker and a professional photographer in St. Louis, Missouri and the director of Photo Explorations, which offers workshops to girls and women using portrait and journaling for self-reflection.
I guess Nolin feels like he belongs to the Planet Photo family too – he was thrilled to see his portrait on my wall and brought me over to “meet” him and Finley in the wall portrait multiple times during his visit! I think Finley is going to find that her big brother will be looking out for her, there is pride in his voice and a twinkle in his eye when he says her name.
So here they are now. Six months brings lots of changes in both a baby and a two year old. Nolin is chatting up a storm and Finley was part of the group!
I would love to welcome your family to the Planet Photo Family.
