I've recently been getting emails from moms whose pride and joy have gone off to college. As a mom of young elementary-aged kids, these thoughts of my babies one day flying the nest always start me crying! I had to leave the room to sob when watching Toy Story 3 with my kids. The part at the end when Andy gives up his toys and leaves for college is just the worst thing ever. I'm tearing up right now just thinking about it! So I can imagine all the emotions that come when the house is quiet for the first time.

As a photographer I love decorating my home with framed photographs and gallery wrapped canvases of my children. I know everyone has their different tastes for artwork in their home, but I can't tell you how many parents of high school seniors who have purchased a large canvas of their graduate have told me that this is the absolute new favorite artwork on their walls.

One parent emailed me to let me know how comforting it was to come down stairs in the morning in a quiet house, make coffee, and just stare at the strategically placed set of gallery wrapped canvases of her daughter's senior portraits. "Denise, you somehow captured this wonderful expression of my daughter that I've seen on her face for all of her big moments so far in life. It's an expression that this mama heart cherishes. I see that look of determination and strength in her senior portrait and I'm just so proud! Seeing her portrait each morning has helped me not miss her as much. When I look at it I'm filled with excitement for all I know she will accomplish."

I love that I can provide a treasure during such an emotional time. All Denise Gammell Photography clients can enjoy a free in home consultation for planning a special wall for their artwork. I arrive with samples, measuring tape and can take your order on the spot. If you are interested in booking a CT senior portrait session or an in-home consultation email me today!
