seems like with the introduction of the digital camera we have got more pictures than we know what to do with. i can lip through maybe 50 photographs from high school and the last 10 years of my life has produced thousands. therefore, the need for individual or family portraits has disappeared. so why not have fun with yourself and your family. ("family", loved ones) take your favorite pic of yourself, you and your cat/dog, you and your anyone and have a brilliant artist have their way with it. these are my favorites!!!
