We begin with the end in mind.
There is little value in your portraiture investment unless you have something tangible at its conclusion to enjoy. A printed piece that lives permanently in your home will be cherished for generations to come. Plus, university research has proven that printed art of your family members provides 65% more emotional connection to your loved ones than swiping through electronic images on a device. Research has also proven that images visible and on display for your children to see, improves their sense of belonging, raises self-esteem, and instills security in their family unit.
Twirl’s mission is to help you create something not only tangible for your home, but also deeply moving for you and for your children to love and adore as the years pass. There’s a reason you chose to invest in professional portraiture. We plan to ensure that reason resonates in your heart each and every day, and that your printed portrait art does nothing but grow in sentimental value as your children grow, and as time rapidly rushes by.

Why invest in images you won’t ever print?
Digital images are very fragile and won’t last. It’s as simple as that. While all of our clients want and go home with electronic negatives from their session, it’s critical to remember they are not a permanent way to archive your memories. Even if you back them up multiple times, it does not guarantee they will survive.
Purchasing the negatives allows you to print your files limitlessly for personal use. However, most people do not. Busy lives, procrastination and a hectic schedule prevents families from doing what they originally had good intentions for.
So while we gladly offer digital negatives, we encourage you to allow us to print your heirloom art pieces. After all, why invest in professional portraiture if your images will simply sit indefinitely on a USB drive buried in a drawer? Print. It’s worth it.
All digital files are offered for purchase when you invest in a signature art piece (Create Your Collection).
