Mother’s Day Giveaway: Baby and Child Portraits by Lori Nelson
There is nothing as precious to a mom as beautiful portraits of her children. Whether your cutie is an infant or a teenager, they grow up and change so fast that catching one moment in time is a priceless treasure. A professional portrait captures not only their delicious faces, but their personalities as well.
I found out about Lori Nelson's paintings from her sister, Jodi Call, a Brooklyn mom blogger who writes about raising her three boys on the hilarious and heartfelt Pistols and Popcorn. I was immediately smitten with Lori's kids' portraits and wanted one for our family.
What I love about Lori's work is that she delivers gorgeous likenesses of her subjects in whimsical settings. Her one-of-a-kind portraits include local architectural details, nature and fantasy elements, and fun tidbits about the kids she's painting. When Lori contacted me to offer portraits of my children so I could review her work and offer a giveaway, I was obviously thrilled. But it was also great to work with her and learn about her process.
