We’re now booking our Christmas at Home portraits, but we are also creating gifts in our workshop for those of you who already have a photo or photos you love from Pixels and would like us to create a gift for you or someone you love this year.

Prints, cards, canvases, albums, jewelry, ornaments, etc. are available for order using any photo or photos that we’ve taken for you at any time. It doesn’t have to be holiday in theme, as long as Pixels took it and you love it. Check out a gallery of Holiday cards we created to give you ideas.

Home for the Holidays… as in your place

Eddie: You surprised to see us, Clark?
Clark: Oh, Eddie… If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn’t be more surprised than I am now.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)

For Christmas 2016, we’re leaving the lights off in our studio and only decking the halls we use as a family. Surprise!!
But it’s not because a relative is coming in an RV with a chemical toilet that needs dumping. And thanks for asking.
We’re taking photos this year at YOUR home, because that is where the holiday magic happens. The magic of cousins and siblings cracking each other up, relatives comparing diets, cars, & travel stories, people quibbling over football games and superior technology; the sharing, bargaining, eating, celebrating, reminiscing, and all the other things that make up The A
bject Comedy of A FAMILY CHRISTMAS. 

A Christmas Story (1983)

Ryan and I have fond memories of our Christmases at home as children and now it’s your turn. If you’re wondering about this, here’s a little movie inspiration to help you along. We know Christmas is rarely Currier & Ives…. and so do you. So, let’s have some fun!

The Family Stone (2005)

Meredith: I’m just as good as any of you!
Amy: Maybe better.
Meredith: What’s so great about you guys?
Sybil: Oh, nothing! It’s just that we’re all we’ve got.

Holly Hunter & Robert Downey, Jr. in Home for the Holidays (1995)

Joanne: You’re calling me a freak?
Tommy:  No, I’m calling you a product of baboon lovin’. There’s a distinction.

Iris and Miles in The Holiday (2006)

 Miles: Iris, if you were a melody…… I used only the good notes.

Elf (2003)

Buddy: I’m sorry I ruined your lives and crammed 11 cookies into your VCR.

When Harry Met Sally (1989)

Harry: Hi, it’s me. It’s is the holiday season and I thought I’d just remind you that this is the season for charity and forgiveness. And although it’s not widely known, it is also the season of grovelling. So if you felt like calling me back, I’d be more than happy to do the traditional Christmas grovel.

Die Hard (1988)

John McClane: Come out to the coast, we’ll get together, have a few laughs…

So, here’s the proposal: Get your house decorated (if you want), tree and stockings up, kids dressed, antlers for the dog, etc. and then let us come to your home to photograph your family, friends, neighbors, pets, coworkers and anyone else in your tribe. Be elegant, be campy, be casual, be silly, be seriously festive, it’s up to you and yours. Just make a date and when you call us we’ll help you brainstorm and plan.The fee of $125 is due when you make your reservation. We will provide 5 digital images for families with up to 3 children. This includes the printing rights along with the option to purchase prints, cards, and gifts. Pets and additional children or family members are welcome for an additional $25. Call 336-990-0080 to reserve or email inquiries to mail@pixelsonpaper.net.

Love Actually (2003)

Prime Minister: Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.

One last thought… Christmas is truly a time to capture a memory and moment in time. Photos at your home are often the most memorable and regardless of whatever else is happening in your life – love is what manifests this season.

Katie’s Senior Photos | A Bright Star in the making

I love photographing young girls and women, particularly when I can capture them in a way that others see them, in a way that is clear to me – that reveals them, but maybe not in a way they normally see themselves. There’s something about watching the revelation that happens when you show a young woman a photo of herself that is not a selfie – that is not frivolous (no offense to selfies and selfie-lovers) and they see a shade of themselves they’d missed. They see a character arc, another aspect of themselves they’d never noticed before. It’s both surprise and recognition and I love it. The experience of photographing Katie Waddell for her senior pictures was a ratification of this for me. It happened all over again.

Katie is a senior at Wilkes Central High School in Wilkesboro NC and she has completely touched my heart. She is the typical teenage girl – with her particular insecurities – but she doesn’t live in them. This girl manages to make sure that everyone around her feels loved. I’ve watched her make others comfortable, make them laugh and that’s what struck me and endeared her to me immediately.
When she wanted some photos taken for her senior year, I was thrilled to do them. Katie is so lovely, on top of her generous spirit and bright lit personality, she’s a perfect subject!

Katie is an amateur photographer herself and particularly loves black and white photos, so when we found a dead tree trunk we both thought was textural and cool.

We love to create short slideshow videos for clients to watch and share with friends and family. It’s just nice way to pull all of the great images and moments together into a dynamic album.

One thing she wanted help with for her senior portraits was WHAT TO WEAR. Oh……if I had a nickel…
It’s one of those crises women vacillate between loving (so many fun choices) and hating (too many choices). I offered to let her run her ideas and choices by me and one night I got a ton of texts with photos of her favorites under consideration. She, and I, had so much fun and she chose well for the setting she’d selected.
I told Katie to choose a spot that had meaning for her or that she particularly loved being in. Those of us with sand or mountains in our veins tend to gravitate to those locations again and again. Initially she wanted the woods near her house, but there was an overlook she loved as well, so we took photos of her in both.

She really SAW herself and I loved being able to give this gift to her. This young lady is just pure potential and I couldn’t be prouder of her or more excited about her future. My money is on you, Katie!!

We love family portraits whether they are set in the studio, the great outdoors, a specific location like the mountains or high country, or on our property in our outdoor portrait garden. Pixels on Paper photographs, engagements and weddingsbrides, and special events and portraits  of all kinds in our Wilkesboro, NC studio. We would be honored to meet with you, learn about you and your family and be a part of taking special portraits that will become, we hope, family heirlooms.
