Lots of families we know are giving their children a sense of belonging by teaching them about their heritage. Portraits play an important role in building a family. They are a gift you give yourself, your children, and generations to come.
When you consider the essence of every portrait is a story of the individual(s) character portrayed, it can be said that portraits created in a studio or against a painted background fall short to lending any symbolism or other storytelling attributes that represent and express who you and/or your family are. With this concept in mind, all portraits by Jeffrey H Mantler are created at a pre-determined location carefully selected by the both you and the artist in order that best depicts your character, style and personality.
