One thing I think that most, if not all, artists pride their selves on is being able to create and offer art that is unique, custom, and one-of-a-kind. And so, one of the very first things I do after I book a maternity art session is get to know my clients on a personal level.
What are their likes? Dislikes? Do they have a unique hobby? Obsession? What about life makes them excited to live it? For April, what made her most happy was her husband, Robert. For this beautiful mother-to-be it was all about surprising daddy-to-be with something fun and unforgettable!When April told me that her husband was a HUGE Star Wars fan and that baby was going to be the first girl in her husband’s lineage in 97 long years I knew that I had to paint none other than THE rebel princess herself. Albeit in an ultra cute and adorable fashion. (I don’t always paint in an ultra-cute fashion, but if I see the opportunity I’m going to take it!)
April and Robert, blessings to you both as you prepare to welcome your sweet rebel princess into the world.It was such a joy and honor to have the privilege to create this sweet artwork to commemorate a most magical time in your lives.
