“I discovered Sworl through my Facebook feed and immediately thought it was a brilliant idea, the perfect solution to the usual hassle of getting pictures framed. It took me two minutes to order these beautiful framed prints.”

thanks!

“Chase was born on February 10. This was the first time I was able to hold him. He had to be taken to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for emergency surgery right after he was born, and this was the next day. I was feeling a little nervous and anxious, but obviously very proud and happy to be a father. Holding Chase for the first time was one of the greatest single moments of my life.

“When Chase was 10 weeks old, we found out he had a series of rare congenital heart and pulmonary defects. Two weeks later he had surgery at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and was hospitalized for about six weeks. Our experience at CHOP was excellent. We live about two hours away, but the pediatric surgeon Thomas Spray is considered one of the best in the world for this particular surgery. This photo of us playing was taken a couple of weeks after the surgery. Despite all he’s been through, Chase is one of the happiest kids I’ve ever seen, almost always smiling.

“The third picture was taken about a month ago. Chase is dressed up to watch a Penn State game with my wife and me. (We both went there and met at a tailgate after we graduated.) He definitely understands when football is on. He’s attentive and very alert and knows that we’re excited. Now the big debate is how soon I get to take him to his first game!

It took me two minutes to order these beautiful framed prints. With these and some others I’ve ordered, my office will finally be outfitted with pictures of my family.”

 “Since we live far apart, I don’t get to see Madi nearly as often as I’d like to, but I love having this Sworl framed photo of us to look at.”

“Here I am with my youngest sister, Madison. She turned one in January —we’re 25 years apart! My dad remarried and now he and my stepmom have Madi and Angela, who’s three. Madi is quite a funny and feisty little girl and loves to compete with Angela.

“The photo was taken last August at my grandma’s surprise 80th birthday party in my hometown, Payette, Idaho. Madi’s half-Filipino and I’m half-Mexican but there’s a definite family resemblance. We both have one dimple, on different sides, along with our grandma’s chin, so we tried to take a picture that showed those features. We took four or five shots—it’s hard to make a baby hold still—but she was laughing and happy the whole time. Since we live far apart, I don’t get to see Madi nearly as often as I’d like to, but I love having this Sworl framed photo of us to look at.”
