Good Morning Whig Readers,
Recently we were listening to a pod cast on one of the many trips we’ve made to Toronto this year. A point was being made about the sense of place and personal meaning a child derives from seeing themselves in a photograph amidst their family members. When a child looks at a family portrait they don’t see the ten pounds Dad has put on, or the silly hair cut Mom had, or the passing trends everyone is wearing, they see themselves belonging. Be it multi-generational, the immediate family, or portraits of your little ones, photographs matter. Photographs don’t just have to be for posterity they can be loved and enjoyed right now, in your daily life. “Living with what you Love” is all about putting beautiful wall art of your family and children into your homes.
One of the lovely women I’ve had the pleasure to work with recently allowed me to take a few shots of her home to help me articulate, visually, what “Living With What You Love” looks like in action. Featured below is one of our Fine Art Gallery Wrapped Canvases. This particular photograph was hand selected for it’s colour and clean composition. The yellows interspersed through the flowers tie the photo in nicely with the colour palette of the room, leaving the space airy and bright. Once we had an idea of where the canvas was going, we chose a size that would appropriately fill the space and contribute to the rooms decor. Our clean and sophisticated style of portraiture lends itself well to turning your family photographs into beautiful wall art that will warm up your homes and personalize your space. Have a great day and “Live With What You Love.”

Winding Violets is first and foremost a fine art wedding photography studio, made up of a husband and wife team. Lucas Tingle and Melissa Howlett were married 3 years ago and began Winding Violets, their full-time photography studio in 2009. “Photographing a Wedding is capturing the beginning of a family, and it’s not long before these new families start to grow,” point out The Violets. “Photographing baby bumps, newborns, and kids was just a natural step for us and the growth of our business. We grow right along with the families,” says Melissa.
So why have maternity and newborn photographs taken, or for that matter why get professionally photographed at all? Winding Violets encourages the families they work with to consider photographs as home decor. Imagine replacing your store bought canvases and the impersonal framed pictures with the precious moments in your family’s development. Winding Violets calls this approach to portraiture and wall art, “Living With What You Love.”
“We have enjoyed great success with our “Living With What You Love” line,” The Violets emphasize. Many families in the Kingston area have warmed up their homes with wall art of their family from Winding Violets. This fall and winter Winding Violets look forward to strengthening their relationship with the families of Kingston and transforming your house into more of a home.
