Phil Cantor Photography will capture the masterpiece that is your family.

Our memories are our most valuable possessions.

When my mother, Millie Cantor, passed away a few years ago, I felt lucky to have so many beautiful photographs of her with my family…memories that I had captured over the years. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any photographs of her with my father and my siblings from when we were younger and I found myself wishing they had gotten a family portrait taken back then.

It made me realize that there are two best times to get a family photo taken: 20 years ago…and right now.
