Printed Portrait Art

 

 

 

 

 
A photographer’s job is to create and make the image look like a safe holding space for kids... Kids get it on a really simple level... I think placing a family photo someplace in the home where the child can see it every day without having to turn on a device or click around on a computer to find it really hits home for that child this sense of reassurance and comfort. They (photographs) have a certainty about them and a protecting quality that nurtures a child. It lets them know ... that they are loved and cared for.

The Power of Printed Portrait Art

My goal is to provide stunning heirloom photographs that you can touch, feel and enjoy every day- art that tells your story and reminds you of the love that you share for your family. For the full Taproot experience, I recommend 4 ways to tell your story through the Printed Portrait- Statement Pieces, Heirloom Story Books, Heartstring Jewelry and Fine Art Press Cards. I’ll walk you through these portrait necessities below and show you the high quality, custom products in person during your complimentary in-home Design Session.

Heirloom Story Books

 

My personal and clinical bias is there is something very powerful in touching your fingers to an actual print. Touching the photograph where a face is smiling or the shoulders, it is the same thing as touching a book when you read it. There’s a lot of stimulation of the brain when you have that sensory experience. That is a bit lost in the move to digital.
— Craig Steinberg, Licensed Psychologist

There’s nothing better than cuddling up on the couch with your sweetheart or kids and slowly flipping through the pages of a photo album together. I’ve come to realize that something very magical happens when my family does this together. Let’s honor your entire story by creating an heirloom that will be treasured for generations. Preserve your story in a beautiful hand crafted Heirloom Story Book with unique cover choices, custom debossing and luxurious lay flat pages.

Statement Pieces

 

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.
— Cathy Lander-Goldberg, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Professional Photographer

One high impact portrait can transform your entire room! My clients love to select a statement portrait(s) that can be displayed in an area of their home where they can enjoy seeing it daily. I always advise clients to choose areas in their homes where they ‘live’ the most, but also where others will see their portrait! Remember that size matters- a 16x20 print doesn’t look so big once you hang it above the sofa or credenza.
