Create Fine Art Portraits That Highlight Your Family’s Style and Legacy
Jul 30, 2019 | By: Maria Sampaio
Remember the last time you took your kids to have their portrait made? Maybe you went to a local photographer’s mini-session or a studio where they take fifteen appoints a day. You know that every photo looked the same—same backdrop, same props, Same.. Same.. Same.
But your family isn’t just like the Jones’s (though they make fine neighbors).
If there’s one thing you want to remember about your kids as they grow up, it’s the things that make them special--those qualities that set them apart from everyone else.
They have their own adorable quirks and expressions, their own likes and dislikes, budding personalities that are unlike anybody else you’ve ever met before. Maybe you want to show the things they share with other family members. Does your son have your great grandmother’s smile? Does your daughter have the same twinkle in her eye as your father and grandfather?
That’s what you really want to capture—your child’s personality and your family’s legacy—not just how you look posing in front of a pretty field of sunflowers.
Don’t get us wrong, there’s nothing wrong with having photos made during a mini-session with a local Charleston photographer. We support small businesses and art of all kinds. But what we do at Castelo Portrait Art is so much more than a one-time photo shoot.
Fine Art Portraits That Highlight Your Family’s Style and Legacy
We want your portrait to be both unique to your child and celebrate your family so it can become an heirloom that’s so special you’ll well up with pride when you see it on your wall. It will have such sentimental value that you’ll want to pass it down to your children and grandchildren one day, too.
Only someone who really gets to know you and your children can truly capture what makes your family special in a portrait. Only a true, experienced fine portrait artist who takes the time to get to know your family well can do it in a tasteful, elegant, timeless way that looks amazing in your home and is so sentimental and meaningful to you, too.
We don’t just take pictures—we make jaw-dropping, show-stopping portraits that are magnificent works of original art. Not only do we get to know you and your family in a more personal way.
We want to watch your children grow up and capture it in a way that only our award winning fine portrait artist, Maria Sampaio, can. Maria’s sense of color harmony, composition, attention to detail, and vision guarantee that your portrait will not look like anything you’ve seen on your neighbors’ walls .
Maria will also help you decide how to best turn your photographs into fine art pieces that will not only be beautiful representations of your family, but will turn your home into something that looks like a fine art gallery. Everyone who visits your home will be envious of the artwork you’ve created with Maria’s help and how beautifully it complements your family’s style and decor.

There are so many options to express yourself when you decide to let Castelo create your portraits. Maria specializes in creating traditional original oil paintings that would look right at home in any luxurious home in Historic Downtown Charleston or an upscale beach house on Kiawah Island.
