Emily has done three protraits for us, one each of our daughters and one of them together. We are always amazed at the detail she can capture. In one of the portraits, my younger daughter is on her first (horse) love, Louie...and Emily captured her smile perfectly. In another, my older daughter is ice skating...and Emily truly captured how she holds her hands while performing. These sound like minor details, but as a parent are what truly give the painting life!
We received a portrait by Emily as a wedding gift. When I first saw the painting, its beauty brought me to tears. She captured a simple kiss between my husband and me that, now, forever reminds us of the love we share for each other every day. The colors are vibrant but not overstated, and she portrayed so well the happiness in our eyes at that exact moment. Everyone who sees the painting compliments it and says “what a thoughtful gift!” And, it truly was. I have to say, of all the gifts we were so blessed to receive on our wedding day, having something that is not only a high quality and original work but also so personal and one-of-a-kind really meant so much to us. We cherish the painting and I hope to have Emily paint a portrait of our children one day!
