Yahtzee! by J. Ridout, beautiful family painting from photo in Highland Park, TX

Meet Luke, Levi and Liam. These Highland Park boys play baseball–-a lot. There are photos all over their house to remind them; commemorating the highs and occasional lows of their sporting childhood. They will never forget about baseball, and forty years from now, when they are sitting together at the Thanksgiving table with their families, the stories will flow like water.

But an equally important part of their childhood occurs in the living room of their home, away from the ‘hustle and bustle’ and daily cares of their lives. This wonderful, loving family sets aside their modern conveniences and spends time together. They play games. They read. They talk. However, there are no cameras present to record these experiences. The moments quietly pass undocumented, slipping forever into the deep recesses of their youthful memories. Yet, the bonds that they are forging will forever shape who they become.

“Yahtzee!” was conceived to capture these meaningful times; to remind them of this essential season in their lives; to give them something else to talk about when they get together later in life. The portrait of these boys will become more valuable and cherished as the years wane on.

We are honored to give this gift to these boys and their family, a Lasting Impression that they will cherish forever.
