In generations past, having a photograph taken was a special occasion. Everybody dressed in Sunday best because they were going to create something that would stand the test of time.
When I was a little girl, I remembered looking at pictures of relatives that hung on the walls of my parents`and grandparents` homes. I’d study their faces trying to see what parts of them were reflected in my own features. Sometimes, I was treated to stories about the people in the photos. The portraits were a touchstone for me to learn about my family. This is the legacy of who I am.
When someone dies, what is the first thing you do? You look for pictures. When my grandparents passed away, the recent photos we could find were several decades old. This, in part, is what inspired me to begin capturing portraits.
Today, we take a snapshot of every moment with our smart phones or digital cameras. These images rarely are printed. We easily forget how precious a professional portrait can be.
Every person deserves to be the subject of a stunning photograph. Let me create beautiful portrait of your and your family! I promise you will love your images!!
