For the Love of One Another…

For the love of one another is why we do anything! Wash dishes, pick up something at the grocery store, or go to the portrait studio to have a portrait made. These words from Winky tell the story of her session with her husband Bob and what the portrait means to her. Be sure to read through to the end.

“I can’t say enough about our exceptional experience at Strauss Peyton. Since our 50th anniversary was quickly approaching, we decided that it was the perfect occasion to have a quality professional portrait taken to commemorate our special milestone. My husband wasn’t fond of himself but he agreed to do it. I knew that it would take an artist to capture the look I was hoping for.

I met with Kaela at the studio and she was extremely thorough about ensuring the sitting would be exactly what we wanted, incorporating the colors, backgrounds, styles and ambiance that we desired.

On the session day, Kaela and Jonathan created a warm and comfortable setting for our portraits. Kaela engaged my husband in a relaxed conversation as Jonathan captured images. Later, when we saw the proofs we were amazed to see the wonderful expression in my husband’s face that we had never seen in a photo of him before. We were both ecstatic with the number of proofs we loved. We would have been happy with just one good photo but there were so many photos that we wanted that it was a challenge to choose just one.

…displayed in my home as a beautiful memory of my life with my wonderful husband…

The portrait that we chose is absolutely beautiful. Everyone that sees it marvels at how special it is. We were so glad we did it. It now means even more than I ever thought it would as it is displayed in my home as a beautiful memory of my life with my wonderful husband who passed away last month. I’m so glad that I have this special portrait and I’m so glad I didn’t put it off.” -Winky
