“Deni captured the essence of Jake at this critical, never to be repeated time of his life.
We are so glad to have found Fine Image because we have beautiful portraits, not “just a picture” that we will cherish when he moves out and starts his adult life.
The portrait on the wall will make it like he is still there with us.

It is so easy now to find someone with a “good camera” to take pictures cheap! Your child deserves to have Deni’s expertise and talent to you get sooo much more than “just a picture”. Let Fine Image create these once in a lifetime portraits, you will be so glad you did.”

“We had an amazing experience from start to finish, with Deni at Fine Image Portrait Art! Our family portrait included our 6 dogs and came out perfect. Deni made it a smooth and easy process. We are so very happy with our portraits. Love the way the wall portrait looks above the fireplace!! We highly recommend him!”

Wow! What a wonderful family portrait!  Thanks Deni.  You were so cordial when we first met you.  Your helpful hints before you came to our home helped to make the portraits very tasteful.  Then, when you came to our home, you had plenty of creative ideas and poses for us to try.  My wife and I loved the way you were very patient with the whole family and helped orchestrate our poses.  And Chester didn’t mind posing on his own either.  We loved the results.  It was difficult to choose from the different portraits, they were all so good.  Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Our relationship with Deni Fine Image began with my winning a silent raffle through the Couer d’alene press.  I wanted to have a family portrait done with all 13 of us!!  My mother was 91 and I was concerned that we had a limited time with her.  It was winter time and Deni was open to coming to our home rather than the studio.  He came and gave us advice on what to wear, best locations, etc.  Unfortunately it WAS winter and the ice and snow, in addition to working around family work schedules prohibited us from a big portrait.

I was still wanting to do a portrait with my mom so my sister, mom and I arranged to meet with Deni in his studio. Mom was so proud to be wearing her “birthday dress” which was quite sparkly so my sister and I also dressed up.

Long story short…. I am so very happy with the result of our studio portraits that Deni did.  My mother passed away a year and a half later at 93 ~ when I see her in her birthday dress, I remember how happy she was at her party and how she sparkled.  Her sparkle is forever captured in Deni’s portraits.  We are so very grateful and happy to have the portraits that he did.

We made a donation to the Leadership Spokane auction for a family portrait package from Fine Image. Deni is incredibly gifted as a photographer, and his love of his profession is infectious. Deni is consummate professional that has a way of capturing the true nature of people and in our case, even a rowdy 6-month old lab puppy. We would recommend him, without reservation, to anyone that wants to preserve a time or experience with the highest quality portrait.

Deni, I am writing to thank you for the beautiful portrait that you have imagined and composed of my granddaughter.

Your skill and insight have illuminated the very nature of her personality.  This portrait magnifies her strength and her vulnerability, her innocence and her sophistication, and reveals her playfulness and her composure. She is only ten years old and the portrait has captured the depth of her beauty and maturity, both, inside and out.

This portrait is a classic. I tease her and tell her she looks like Mona Lisa.”
