I love the idea of non-traditional portraits, and I have a fun collection of images of Derek and I.
Most recently I commissioned these personalized paper dolls by jordan grace owens:
And ... maybe I got a little carried away and commissioned one for everybody in my family for Christmas too. It is pretty uncanny how much each of the dolls looks like the real life people they were modeled after.
My parents (my dad really does love polo shirts with rocket emblems on them):
Dave, Tatum and the weiner dogs (including a very accurate 3-legged Owen):
Jake and Kathryn (who were pretty much wearing these exact outfits when they opened the dolls):
And of course, Derek and I, as perfectly little segmented selves.
I think these make great personalized gifts (Valentines Day, anyone?)
