How FUN are the Simmons! If you haven’t, you HAVE to check out their family photos! How about the “Christmas Story” re-make? Or the Super Dad and son photo. LOVE!! I couldn’t NOT fall in love with this family! Oh! AND they love to go antiquing together?! *SWOON* An eight and a six year old! I definitely HAD to go that route for this illustration. What a lovely family!
Here is their entry:
|Tell me a brief summary of each member of your family (name, age, hair/eye color, personality). *|
|My husband, Matt has green eyes and black hair- he loves being a daddy and playing with the kids…he is carefree and fun loving and goes with the flow.Our son, Cohan will be 8 in August- he has gorgeous blue eyes and blonde hair. He is my sweet boy who is always full of energy and loves to laugh as well as making others laugh- he can light up a room! He loves to play soccer and if he could he would live outside collecting bugs and drawing pictures…. he loves to draw!
Our daughter, Emma Colleen will be 6 in August- she is our little strawberry blond irish girl we prayed for! Emma is full of life, and truly enjoys everything around her. She is always singing and dancing around the house and everywhere we go. As well as signing you will find her wearing one of her many princess dresses and playing with her dolls..she is a joy to be around and just puts a smile on your face. She has a teddy bear named LuLu that is always with her that she loves dearly.
Me- I have blonde hair and green eyes…I love my kids..being with them makes me the happiest… i love taking pictures…so I always have a camera around my neck wherever we go because I never want to miss a moment of my kids lives so they can in turn share them with their kids and remember the beautiful moments we created as a family.
|The 3 to 5 prominent colors I would like in my piece include:*||green, tan, light yellow, red, plum|
|Is there a career path you would like to include in an illustration *||No thank you!|
|Tell me what you would like to see your family doing (would you like them just sitting all together posing, as if for a picture? Or would you like them to be doing something together). Please supply the most details here: *||I would love to see us doing something together! On the go as a family sitting out on our next adventure antique shopping at a downtown square…or on the beach playing..collecting seashells building a sand castle…We will be tickled pink with whatever your heart pulls at you to create after getting to know a little piece of the Simmons family.
I will also send a picture of LuLu(teddy bear) if I’m lucky enough for you to request additional pictures.
|Any other details you might be able to give me that would help ensure your enjoyment of the piece:*|
|I could write and write about my precious family! The kids love to watch the American Pickers…so we take them antique shopping to find treasures..and show them things of the past and history. We love watching movies eating popcorn and snuggling….we enjoy being outside catching bugs..fire flies…riding scooters and bikes..going to the beach is a high light for my kids..collecting sea shells and playing in the sand….as long as the 4 of us are together we are in our happy place enjoying one another. I am attaching our Christmas Card picture…the Simmons Story…spin off from the Christmas Story movie|
I’m just enamored by this family.
Simmons family… you are lovely. Thank you for letting me do this illustration! I hope you are so happy with it!!
Much love and happy weekend!!!
