I was so excited to photograph Tammie! She is a powerful, confident, and kind woman who brought such wonderful, calm energy into the studio. I did Tammie's makeup and our hair stylist Monique gave her a beautiful, relaxed curl. We photographed Tammie in a variety of outfits but in the end, she loved herself in blue the most! And why wouldn't she - it suits her beautiful freckles and her rich, red hair so well. We will be seeing more of her next month because she is coming back with her daughter for a Mother & Daughter photoshoot!
The goal of getting your portrait taken is to virtually freeze a moment in time. As poetic as that sounds, many times photographs do not just freeze the moment, they also preserve the era in which it happened for eternity. Your Grandmother's 1940's portrait has a certain style - as does your high school yearbook photo (mine features two braids, awful bangs, and a plastic choker necklace; can you picture it?)
The idea behind the type of portraiture I create is to stick to the timeless basics: beautiful hair and makeup, simple outfits, clean editing style. I want your light to shine through, unobstructed. I want your kids and grandkids to have a beautiful portrait of you that shows your beauty and your personality without showing the signs of the time period in which it was. We keep it simple. We keep it stunning. We keep it truly timeless.
