Turn keepsakes & family heirlooms into personalized modern art photographs

And The Most Thoughtful Husband Award goes to...

DJ surprised his wife other birthday with a larger than life portrait of their son and daughter's beloved stuffed animals from when they were little.

DJ initially wanted to make a medium sized print that he could easily hide in his office until the day of wife's birthday. He was the best kind of client; fun, creative, and genuinely wanted to make his wife something really unique for her big day.

Once we got the stuffed animals in front of the camera, they took on a life of their own. DJ's co-worker and friend got in on the fun and somehow plans for the image's size got bigger and bigger.

Needless to say, DJ's wife received a nearly 3ft tall Heirloomist portrait.

"She absolutely loves it," DJ said. "And almost as important, the kids went nuts when they saw it!"

"Only problem is that, in 50 years from now, there will be a fight among the two kids as to who gets this," he joked.

Thanks for letting us share your story, DJ! And thank you for taking a chance and going BIG with The Heirloomist.
