Family portraits. Here are some images from a recent maternity session. The whole family was involved and we did a really beautiful album with them. Baby Edric was born about a month after the session.

When I was about 23 I gathered my brothers and went to a pro photographer to get a portrait done of the three of us. I can’t tell you how much she loved it. She cried (the ultimate test of a good “mom” present). Now I’m a bit older (uh-hem, friends and fam, no need to give away how much older) and one of these portraits hangs in my home today. It was a perfect gift for mom but more than that it is now a gift for the whole family. I treasure it. I only regret that I didn’t do it more often. So this might seem like a no-brainer “gift idea” but we all need reminding. Whether mom’s kids (or your kids :) are tiny little babies or pretty much all grown up, she loves photos of them. So whether you book a session with me for Mother’s Day or any day, do it. You will always be glad you did. And Moms reading this, we do offer gift cards and we are used to dealing with husbands/dads who are clueless as to what to get you for Mother’s Day. Just send them our way and we will handle the rest.

Here are some images of “kid” portraits for mom . . . forever.

OK, so we know what you’re thinking. Mother’s Day!! That’s in May. That is so far away. Well, not really. It’s March 1st and in about two months you’ll be pulling your hair out trying to think of the perfect and meaningful gift for your mom (or the mother of your children or furry children). Can we make a little suggestion? Make it easy on yourself and call us now to schedule an appointment. We will do portraits of whoever “Mom” loves and then you’ll have the most amazing and thoughtful gift to wrap and present to her ON Mother’s Day. Not only can we help you select beautiful custom prints but we also have a very nice selection of custom photo products like photo jewelry, bags, canvas art. Stuff that is sure to bring a tear to Mom’s eye. So for the next few weeks we will post a photo and an idea of what would make a great gift for Mother’s Day.

Without further ado . . . Mother’s Day Gift Idea #1
A tote bag for all her stuff with your photo on it!!! Or her pooches photo on it! Bags take about 3 weeks so that is why you will want to book your session soon to get your mom’s session done and then order the custom photo bag. sophia8bday-482

Well, I’ve returned from the WPPI (Wedding Portrait Photographers Intl.) convention in Vegas and whew, it  was a whirlwind of good stuff.    Seeing old friends, making new ones, taking on new product lines, getting some “fabu” ideas for new products to offer and new photo tricks to try out and cool, new equipment. I’m all shaky with new ideas!!  (Perhaps, caffeine is also at play here.)   So for the next few weeks you’ll probably see my blog speckled with these NEW STUFF updates.  The first one is so darn cool I just can’t stand it.  Lisa Scarsi Photogrpahy will now be offering a line of photo jewelry.  Not the mediocre kind you see at the mall or at consumer-type camera  stores.  This sparkly stuff  is tippy-top of the line. Sterling silver in artful designs that rival the stuff you see at Tiffany’s (but the prices are not at Tiffany’s level – thank goodness).   At the convention, I was able to look at touch and feel several different lines of jewelry and this line that I’m carrying is the absolute best.  I just love the pieces!! The sample photos do not do the pieces justice. You really have to see them and touch them.  The photos are somehow part of the silver (not just a photo cut out and  sitting in the jewelry) and best of all the image quality is amazing.  The black and white images look perfect, the desaturated images look amazing and the color looks stunning.  I don’t know how they do it!!!  I’m getting a necklace with my dogs photos and another with my kids on it and a charm bracelet and a ring and . . . OK, husbands/dads you get the point right?  Mother’s Day is on the way!!!   Here are a couple sample photos to whet your whistle . . .

Picture 11Picture 12Not my photography in these samples.  My order with my photos in them are on their way.   Orders take about 4 weeks to arrive so if you’re thinking Mother’s Day, call now to book a session and get your order started!!  Jewelry can also be made from images from recent sessions  so if you’re one of my clients and you think you need a Mother’s Day gift, give me a ring.
