At an age where everyone has the tools to take high-quality photos on their smartphone, it’s important for the professional portrait photographer to provide an image that you will remember all your life. Professional photographs are priceless and will become the most beloved things you own. As per Joan Miro, “You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again. You can also look at an image for a second, and think of it all your life.”
It’s with this quote in mind that I approach every portrait session and think about it every time I pick up my camera. Whether you need a professional portrait for your LinkedIn profile, an artistic portrait for your personal collection, or a Vogue-Inspired glamour session, I make sure that every photo channels your energy at its best. My service as a portrait photographer is designed to show the real you in a shot. Therefore, I am very aware of creating a trust environment where you can relax. Whether you opt for a color or a black and white image, the portrait is all about you. Unlike the fast-paced world of digital selfies, the picture is a timeless display of your personality, your energy, and your self-expression.
The Art of Portrait Photography
There is definitely an art to capturing the essence of your subject and I believe it starts with connection.
You see, getting to know my client is as much for me as it is for them. I have to know who they are (at least in part) before I even pick up the camera. Capturing that image where my subject is relaxed and candid, well that becomes unmistakably evident, and I think it's priceless.
