Portraiture

Portraiture

This fine art portrait is a typical example from one of my portrait sessions. ..Although this portrait may look as though it has been taken in a studio it was in fact captured in the dining room of a home. To get this effect I bring the backgrounds, props and lights to create a studio effect yet in the comfort of your own surroundings...You want beautiful portraits that will provide you with amazing memories for years to come. To achieve this you want to be as relaxed and confident in front of the camera as possible. ..I think that this image gives you a good idea of exactly why I come to your home rather than you coming to a studio. Because my portrait sessions take place at your home you can easily get changed into a range of clothes and try different looks and styles. In this example the young lady had a brand new red dress and this was the opportunity to show it off!..Because we are in your space you feel so much more comfortable. I am the visitor not you. This is especially effective when children are taking part in your photoshoot. They can come and go as needed and have easy access to their own toys, snacks, games and clothes. You can imagine that this reduces the stress on you considerably and that means that your portrait will be better too...Yet another advantage of being in your home is those things that really mean something to you and your family are easily to hand. To give you an example, one of our boys loved a little toy rabbit. It went everywhere with him. If we forgot it and left it at home then he behaved in a very different way! Being at home means rabbit, or a favourite bedtime book, or blanket are within easy reach. Imagine being able to look back in years to come and remember all of the stories that surround your loved ones and their favourite things...Being able to change clothes easily is also very handy when it comes to teenagers who want a different look. First they can have their portrait taken in the clothes and style that you want. Then they can express their individuality in their own mini session too. Imagine them being able to have the portrait that they want and how good it will make them feel. And, you get the portrait you want too!...So where do I travel?..I come to your home basically anywhere. If you are in the UK then there are no travel expenses and I can be at your home, workplace or favourite location. If you live outside of the UK then I do make an additional charge for travel and accommodation...Get in contact today to arrange a consultation and we can discuss how you can have your beautiful memories and portraits taken in your own home.
