“Thank You for all your support and encouragement, which allows me to do what I love most in the world. CREATE UNIQUELY DIFFERENT PORTRAITS FOR UNIQUELY DIFFERENT PEOPLE.”
Have you ever wanted to thank someone but knew you needed something more than your average boring thank you card? Just over a year ago I could barely walk due to both my hip joints being worn down and destroyed, which meant I would need to have surgery to replace both hips.
Thanks to my amazing family and friends, who donated the money I would need, I was able to undergo the badly needed surgery and more importantly, be able to walk normal again. This kindness definitely required a thank you well beyond what I could get from Hallmark.
Unlike with regular boring portrait photography, I was able to create an image that magically portrayed me maximizing my brand new hips, and while I may be exaggerating a little here, today is really much better than before as you can see in these x-rays.
One day I could barely walk without crutches and the next day I was walking hours after having both hips replaced. How crazy is that?
Within a month my wife and I were flying to Georgia to start work on our next family portrait call “Baxter Bash”. This job required a lot of stair and hill climbing, not to mention a small run through the airport to catch our flight.
Then, within two months my wife had me hiking Vail mountain along with many other 2 to 4 mile hikes up and around Vail, CO.
I’ve never been one to really believe the “miracle” hype but I can honestly say the difference between the years before my surgery and since having my surgery has truly been a miracle, and it’s because of those who made all this possible, that I wanted to create a thank you uniquely different and special to them.
Who would you like to thank in a special way? In a way specific just to them? A thank you that can only be expressed with a Creative Portrait by Photillustrator?
