Naming a child after someone that has passed away can be bittersweet. You are honoring the memory but wish that the person could be photographed together.
I create composite portraits that combine children and their namesakes together.
This is a way to Opportunity to see them united in a single photograph. show both together in the same photo and show the special connection that they have.
Children have never had the opportunity to meet the people that they were named for. A way to show connection to these people
You provide the highest possible quality photos you have of your loved one who has passed away. If they are hard copies, I can scan them.
You either send me pictures of the child or I can take the pictures. If you’d like a custom background, I can take the pictures in that setting. Often b’nai mitzvot are pictured at the bimah in photographs taken prior to the actual day.
I will repair and retouch the old photo and provide you with a copy of that as well. I can also colorize the picture if you like.
You can send me several different pictures of the same person and I will try to incorporate the best parts of each into a single photo.
With the right poses and pictures, I can create a composite in which the child and namesake(s) are interacting with each other.
I add the names, dates and relationships.
