A fun family portrait like this one really is never chosen as the main portrait order. However, most of the time parents cannot part with it and usually order it special as holiday card or as a smaller portrait.
These type of portraits, what I often call for lack of a better phrase, novelty portraits elicit a different response often jovial or even a funny, friendly comment.
As you may imagine, these type of portraits are generally most effective when the include a baby or a young child acting in a cute an charming manner.
Portraits like these add humor and fun to the ordering process for my clients.
