Father's Day is Sunday, June 19th.

Father's Day is coming soon.  Wouldn't it be a nice occasion to get that portrait of dad that you've been meaning to get taken?  Dad by himself, you and dad, dad and the kids.  Time flies when the children are little.  Get some quality portraits made and printed as a metal print or canvas, among many options.  Contact us to arrange a date to make those portraits.

I looked into the background of Father's Day and found this information:

"Father's Day started in the early 20th century in the United States to celebrate fatherhood and to complement Mother's Day. It was first celebrated on June 19, 1910 in Spokane, Washington at the YMCA by Sonora Smart Dodd. She heard about Mother's Day in 1909 and told her pastor she thought fathers should have a similar holiday. Her father raised six children as a single parent. The local clergymen agreed to the idea and the first Father's Day sermon was given on June 19, 1910."   [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonora_Smart_Dodd]

The picture above is of me and my dad.
