Formal family portraits are NOT old fashioned and in fact - Ellenburg Photography thinks that these timeless masterpieces are on the way back in. Formal family portraits have been hanging around walls since the beginning of photography - Moms, Dads and Children all dressed in their best wear posed and frozen in time for all generations to see. When you think about going over to Grandma's house - it was always fun to look at these wall portraits and decide who looked like who now. That joy can live on for your children with Formal Family Portraits.
