What's In a Cup of Coffee?

An innocent four dollars spent a day at your favorite coffee shop amounts to $960+ annually. If coffee prices continue to follow their upward trend, on a weekly basis you may end up paying as much for your cup of coffee as you do to fill-up your automobile's gasoline tank.

In the end, you have to ask yourself if having nothing to show for it is worth drinking that money away.

Rarely do we think about our daily spending habits and how quite literally we are throwing money right down the drain. If only we made a concerted effort to curtail our daily spending, we could invest in something that offers a tangible benefit - not just now but something for future generations to enjoy.

If you are lucky, you are a multimillionaire that makes generous donations to organizations that name buildings after you! Your name in stone, how's that for tangible?

Well... there is a substantially less expensive way for your name and face to live on for posterity - it's called an heirloom portrait.

Whether your investment in a heirloom portrait is for the boardroom or the stairwell in your home, future generations will see, will remember, and will enjoy your image - a confirmation of your existence in the world.

While some portraits might be formal in nature, they may also be environmental (natural surroundings as opposed to a studio backdrop) and reflect your occupation or hobby. Generally these portraits are three-quarter or from the waist up and are framed.

Depending on your taste a heirloom portrait can be black and white, sepia, or color. Watercolor or oil painting effects can be applied to photographic images to make it truly unique. Additionally, there are different paper substrates available for giclee printing such an archival fine art matte or canvas. So what are you waiting for? Put down that cup of coffee and call your photographer today!
