I did this as a commission for the mama of the family pictured and I'm finally putting on the internet because it was unveiled to the family the other day. I was nervous about it, but their reactions were great and everyone loves it! It's a little scary doing portraits of people you are super close to because you don't want to offend anyone whether by making them too gorgeous or too realistic. Because truthfully most people don't want it to be perfectly accurate. Which is why I made them stylized. Yay for avoiding realism!
