When people think of portrait photography, thoughts of a shopping mall studio
  comes quickly to mind. Many portrait studios will place and individual or family in
  front of the camera for that all to familiar "sit up straight and smile" portrait. Not
  that there is anything wrong with these types of portraits, and we are more than 
  happy to accommodate our clients if a traditional portrait is what they require.....

When thinking of fine art portrait photography ideas, consider what's important
  in your life, passions, hobbies or just a fantasy play, dressing up in costume of  a 
  1950's film noir character for example. A fine art photographer can take your idea
 and fine tune the concept creating a work of art that will hang above the mantel 
for generations to come.

Composite portraits are where we can work in the studio for the main subject and
go on location to capture another photograph, then combine the two. As here in 
 the portrait above and below, we photographed our clients in the studio and then
                                               placed them a country setting background that completes the portrait.

Family and children's portrait are by far the most valuable treasures we have. Telling
the story of our journeys through life, that can be revisited for generations to come.
