When it comes to kids, parents are both trying to keep up and trying to hold onto the time passing by as they grow up. As a family photographer in Phoenix, Arizona, I love being able to help parents with the latter. But, I say that’s just not enough! Aside from seeing portraits and letting memories play in your mind, there is something out there that can go hand-in-hand (pun intended) with these memories, and that is family hand casting, in PhoenixIn only a few minutes, you can have a piece of art that shows every detail of your family’s hands – freezing those tiny fingers, wrapped around your own hands. Use it as decor, a bookend, or simply a private keepsake. Hand casting is super safe and simple! If family hand casting just isn’t for you, there is so much more you can cast, like a belly cast for you baby bump, a bum for your newborn, and a paw for your pup!

Where to Find Family Hand Casting in Phoenix

Working in the Greater Phoenix area, Lorraine creates many unique memorial pieces. Have your newborn’s feet, hands and bum casted and added to a shadow box that holds their hospital band, socks and hat, plus a portrait, of course. Have your family hand casting in Phoenix done in a truly timeless way with a style to match your vision. Keep it simple with a white cast, or match your home with bronze, silver or colors. Lorraine also works with memorial pieces for elderly or sick family members, and can take hand and finger prints to turn into jewelry. You can find all of her offers on her website!
