Personal Portraits


  I shoot a wide variety of Portrait Photography including Family Portraits, larger Group Portraits, Studio Portraits, Portaits in the Park, Children's Portraits & Portraits in your Home  
  Whether you are thinking about an Individual Portrait of yourself or someone close to you, a Family Portrait or a Group Portrait, you probably have some ideas of your own. Understanding what you would like from your portrait is important to both of us in determining the right direction for your portrait.

  The most obvious place to start is, to choose between a Studio Portrait or a Location Portrait, a park , your favorite setting such as your own backyard, garden or Country Club. An interior Family Portrait in your own home with studio lighting makes a wonderful and lasting memory, documenting your place in time. A Clubhouse, Hall or Party room can often provide a space open enough to  accommodate  larger groups for Family Reunion Portraits. 

  It's a good idea to consider the other participants of a Group Portrait and incorporate their input and personalities in order to ensure a relaxed and enjoyable experience with an endearing outcome. Where children and teens are concerned, nap times, attention spans, temperaments, self image and self consciousness, are issues that are best addressed in the planning stages. Where children and teens are concerned it's important they be on your side and at the top of their day.

Advance preparation ensures that shoots are focused and productive, while flexible in duration, where children are concerned time is always an issue.  
  Shoot and Client Info 

  Where wardrobe is concerned simple is best, void loud or strong patterns ie. checks, plaids or stripes, logos or shirt graphics.  Where Family Portraits & Group Portraits are concerned try to coordinate wardrobes.   A change of clothes is encouraged, you may or may not use it, but the option is there, layers provide variety, a second shirt / blouse, different tie/ scarf, jacket / sweater can change things up.

  When choosing make-up a matt finish is preferable to one that leaves a sheen or glow. Bring a hair brush, comb and extra make-up for touch ups. 

  Basic retouching of lint, stray hairs, skin etc. is included on all print and digital orders.  Additional work will be priced on a case by case basis.
