I think the first portrait I ever did "for real" was for Lara and Travis. About 3 years ago when I was playing around doing portraits of my friends and family I thought about doing one for them as their wedding gift. Little did I know that their gift would blaze a trail. After marriage, Lara and Travis introduced the most the most beautiful little girl I have ever seen into this world. Just like her parents, she is absolutely gorgeous. Baby Iyla. She has a sparkle in her eye that wee one. Her solo portrait is coming soon!
I was so excited to paint a portrait of this sweet family now of three. As you can see they are just as perfect as can be! Three years sure flew bye fast, Happy Anniversary.
Here are the questions I got Lara to answer for me...
Who is the portrait of?
Its a family photo of myself, my daughter, and my husband.
Why did you choose to get this portrait made?
Marina made me a portrait of my husband and I as a wedding present and I wanted to add to our "Marina" collection with our new bundle for our wedding anniversary.
Is there anything else you would like to share about the photograph or person in the painting?This photo was taken at Suzanne and Alex's wedding and was the first wedding Iyla attended. We had a fabulous time!
How did you hear about Marina’s art?I have known Marina since high school. She has been a very dear friend of my sister and I for many years. She is extremely talented in so many art facets and I am excited to add this family portrait to our "Marina" collection!
Love you Lara and Travis and Little Iyla.
Congrats on your Wedding Anniversary ~ Can't wait to squeeze you in real life.
