My Testimonial About CB Fine Art Photography

Though I live in California, I have been eager to schedule a portrait session with Caitlyn Bom of CB Fine Art. Full disclosure: I do marketing for Caitlyn, but that’s how I found out about her talents in the first place. When I booked my flight to visit my family in Florida, I knew I had to schedule a portrait session with her and her team.

You see, my beloved Grandmother is 93-years-old, and I don’t know how much more time I’ll have with her. Same goes with my 72-year-old Dad. He has Lewy Body Dementia, which is what the late Robin Williams had. I know time is steadily slipping away, and I want to get their photos taken before their quality of life declines. So, I viewed this as a golden opportunity to have a portrait taken of me, my parents, and Gramma. This would be the first time that my family would have professional photographs taken of us together.

After deciding what to wear (we chose jewel tones), we gathered in Gramma’s backyard, which has a beautiful park-like feeling to it. Caitlyn and her assistant showed up early to set up, were friendly, professional, and captured some beautiful images of me and my family. I am delighted with the results!

My goal was to capture the moment with my family while they are still mobile, happy, and moderately healthy. I will be forever grateful to Caitlyn for taking such wonderful portraits that capture our essence and personalities. Thank you, Caitlyn, for your wonderful work.

The Value of Family Portraits

The memories we create with our family last forever. We will always cherish the special moments we share with our loved ones. However, sometimes, the curse of time deteriorates the quality of our memories. The small details, such as the contrast of the brilliant red of your daughter’s scarf against the white snow, are buried deep within our mind and unable to be retrieved.

A portrait session with your family freezes the special moment in time. The details of the memory are forever captured in a photograph. At CB Fine Art, we don’t just take a picture. We capture the essence of your family. Your daughter’s precocity or your son’s bursting energy are forever frozen in a collection of portraits from CB Fine Art.

Family portrait sessions are also known to boost your child’s self-esteem. Judy Weiser, a psychologist, studies the effects of taking family portraits on children’s development. She concludes that when a child is involved in a family portrait, they feel apart of the family. “I belong here. This is where I come from,” is what your daughter or son typically says to themselves. They recognize and embrace the uniqueness of their own family and their own story. A portrait session binds a family together while allowing each family member to feel cherished.

Photography at CB Fine Art is definitely a family affair. Caitlyn Bom’s father’s passion was photography, and he had beautiful photographs decorating his office as she was growing up. As Caitlyn was growing up, her father, Kevin, thought she was dedicating too much of her attention on typical teenage things, such as school, working, and boyfriends. He suggested photography. Photography became her release and escape, and she is still thankful to him for sharing his passion with her.
