Personalize your portraits

When we photograph a client, we strive to portray his or her personality. Portraits should tell a story; whether it's an emotion, a personality trait or a specific hobby. It's a way to document the present to preserve for the future. Technology has given us new tools over the years to create truly one-of-a-kind images. Discussing with our clients what they would like as an end product gives us an idea of how we can personalize it to become a unique creation to display in their homes.

Fall is upon us

It is already nearing the end of August and a new school year is quickly approaching! We have noticed early signs of fall this year such as the sumac changing color and some of the leaves beginning to turn yellow. Outdoor fall sessions are very popular for families and seniors, and they're booking up fast! We have several locations with beautiful color around the area to photograph at. Usually the second week in October is our last week for outdoor photos; with the early changes it may be sooner this year. To capture the beauty of the fall colors, an appointment should be scheduled soon.

New babies

We have photographed many newborn babies through the years; this has become a very popular session! Capturing the tiny hands, feet and expressions is such a great way to document the new baby's first few months. This session can be done anytime during the first year, but many prefer to do it shortly after birth. Marti recently photographed this session and we were thrilled with the infants expressiveness and the warmth captured among the family members.

Be Unique

There are may ways to give your photographs a unique touch. Different clothing styles and choices of backgrounds or locations give you endless possibilites. Adding special effects to the finished image can also set it apart and add creativity. In this session, many of the finished images were in color. The young girl's shirt had beautiful decoration at the bottom, which made for a great selectively-colored portrait. What a great way to add variety to your wall!
