“Thank You for all your support and encouragement, which allows me to do what I love most in the world. Make Awesome Pictures.”
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 Uniquely Different Portrait by Photillustrator?
