Sassy & Dapper | Finished Portrait

This post is day 20 of a 31 days series on finding Joy Simply. You can read all the posts from the series by clicking HERE.

I’ll go on record saying my photos do not give this painting justice. There, got that out of the way.  My friend Shea recently worked with my Mom and I for a custom portrait of her 5 year old daughter {and my God daughter, hum um}, Railey.  I took photos over the summer and the gorgeous, completed portrait is now living happily in Atlanta with Shea.  Mom had portraits done of my sister and I when we were young so I grew up seeing the paintings on the wall.  Maybe it’s a southern thing, I really don’t know, but Mama’s around here love having their babies within an eye shot particularly on a canvas. In fact. Mom still has our portraits hanging in her house today.

An heirloom, if you will.

You can see that the artist worked off the below photograph.  Painting is not my specialty and I couldn’t do anything like this in a million years. Mom and I started this company, Sassy & Dapper, in hope that mother’s can obtain that Old Master’s style portrait of their children while still having money left over for their college. If this is the end product, I couldn’t be more thrilled and excited with this new endeavor.

The portraiture {artist} is immensely talented.

This will certainly bring Joy Simply to my dear friend for many, many years.
