People & Pet Portraits
The key to great portraits is capturing the subject looking natural. The first step is putting them at ease, so I spend some time before the shoot with my subject to get to know them and get clarity on what they want/need from the images as well as explain the process so they know what to expect. This makes everyone more relaxed and comfortable, which in turn makes the shooting a breeze. I give direction as needed to help clients look their best, wardrobe advice, and can offer hair and makeup styling to give a little extra confidence boost. Unless, of course, the client is the family dog or cat or fish or bird or pet rock… Maybe a little hair styling, but mostly we give them a lot of love, a few treats and toys and then a mix of patience and timing to get the shot. These crucial steps take more time and attention than you’ll get at a high volume portrait factory, but the quality of the results make it well worth the time and money invested.
