My home is filled with beautiful skies and stunning sunsets. I have them from different moments in my life as well as horizons captured by professional photographers.
There’s the snapshots I took of the sun setting each night on the little lake in Canada where my husband and I spent our honeymoon.
I have prints of the masters filling the sky with colorful brush strokes.
We have a blazing pink, red and yellow sky set behind the crashing waves of Lake Superior by and Jay Steinke.
Most recently three beautiful names were captured with a gorgeous sky of purple, pink and gold on the beaches of Australia: Alice Mae, Elliot Nathan and Alexis Marie.
Some of you know my story (read more here: Blessed with More). February 3rd, 2012 I delivered triplets at 22 weeks. After three short hours with each of them in our arms, they passed into the arms of God. Three children very much hoped for, prayed for, loved, joined their two siblings in Heaven.
I was blessed with an amazing gift from a woman named CarlyMarie in Perth Australia. She’s dedicated her time to honor the memory of babies in Heaven by writing each of their names in the sand at sunset on a special beach. Each sunset is unique to your child. (If you didn’t name your child she will draw a sweet heart in the sand.)
After her son Christian went to Heaven, he came to her in a dream. She saw him writing his name in the sand at this beach and since then she’s been blessing families with this special memorial. Since the winter of 2008 over 15,000 children’s names have been written in the sand at sunset on Christian’s Beach.
She does these beautiful memorials for free (if you like the image you can purchase a digital file for a reasonable price but the web post is completely free). See Carly’s site for more information. Thank you Carly for all you do!
When MyPublisher offered a canvas print for our sunset names I knew I needed to create something special to show off these beautiful “baby pictures”. There is comfort in their sunsets as they show a constant reminder of the peace that my children now enjoy. I look for moments in every day when my little ones speak to me through God’s beauty here on earth. I love seeing personality in each image and imagining my little ones drawing their names in the sand. Alice left me little bubbles on her beach, Elliot left crashing waves, and Alexis sent a gentle wave with the sun’s blazing reflection.
Thank you My Publisher for the gift to enjoy these sunsets on your beautiful canvas prints.
You can enjoy a custom canvas print too! Use your own sunset moment, a single family portrait, a landscape of your favorite vacation spot, or a collage of images as I did at home with Photoshop (for the more tech savvy).
MyPublisher has Five Ways to Capture your Favorite Summer Memories:
1. Take advantage of summer sunsets
The lighting of pink and blue summer sunsets is the perfect backdrop for your memories.
2. Underwater fun!
Give your pictures a unique setting by shooting them in the ocean or pool. With an underwater camera, you can capture your family among the amazing creatures you met while snorkeling or the fun times you had splashing around playing pool volleyball.
3. Play with different angles
Take a break! Give the little ones a chance to be creative. Buy each child a disposable camera and get a “new perspective on life” with the pictures taken from a child’s point of view.
4. Display your memories
Show off your best shots! Create canvas prints as well as photo books to keep in the hub of the home: the kitchen, living room or wherever your family spends the most time.
5. Customize it!
Create a high quality, personalized photo book that will last generations with MyPublisher’s variety of customizable options.
