I’ve always thought that with the proliferation of digital photography, the pendulum would eventually swing the other way, and artistic renderings would again rule the day. Stumbling across the charming work of Lili Di Prima seems to back this idea up.
Her meticulous portraits of families — including children and pets — capture the essence of each subject, as well as a moment in time, in a way a photograph could never do. These promise to be cherished keepsakes of loved ones that will endure for posterity. Choose from portraits of individuals, pets or groups with oval cutouts; stretched canvases with digital files; wedding invitations; printable holiday cards; stickers; magnets — even temporary tattoos!
Check out Lili’s Etsy shop to buy a listing — and make sure to read the fine print about turnaround times. After all, these aren’t Polaroid photos — classic portraiture takes time!
