I absolutely love this wedding portrait of my mother and father.
This is the original portrait that I had copied for myself and my other sisters, nieces and nephews.
My copy of the original photograph is ready for the framer to perform her magic.
It is probably one of my favorite images of all time.
Of course, I want it to be a part of my legacy wall
along with this other fabulously beautiful wedding portrait of my mother and father-in-law,
which I also love very much and is ready for framing goodness.
It was a priority to get them copied and printed before I continue because they are a priority to me.
That took some time to do, but here we are and ready to frame.
It’s funny how we can set out to accomplish something and somehow
life gets in the way, isn’t it?
Just thought I’d throw that in here…cuz I know you know what I’m talking about! wink.
So be it with my personal Visual Legacy Wall.
I love doing this so much but my priority is serving my clients, so I am piecing it together a little at a time and letting go of “perfect”.
Fortunately, I have my favorite vintage & sentimental images all framed and ready to make their way on the wall.
See their little faces ~ they’re saying…”hang me up…hang me up!”
Just ignore the dust bunnies…
I am so happy that I have these.
I am so happy that they are not in a drawer any more or on a disc somewhere.
I am so happy that my relatives had these portraits taken and printed so that I can help my children know who they are and where they come from.
I am so happy that we have the new technology to copy and restore them.
These are three more historical prints of my grandparents who immigrated here from Italy.
I’m having them retouched, re-printed on archival paper and framed before I can make the final decisions for this gallery.
I can’t wait to see what the retoucher can do with these to make them printable and preserved for the wall.
You can see here that they’re scratched, etc., and I want them to have integrity and longevity, so I’m willing to go the extra mile to get the quality that they deserve.
The next step is planning to get together with my siblings to go through the rest of what has been documented and
decide which images are my favorites, make final choices and finish this baby.
Then I can know what I have to work with for the space that I have, and decide what I need to add of my own personal family photographs to tell our story.
Let me know if I can help you do the same…we could have some fun!
