I had a mom and dad who loved each other,
and through their 50+ marriage
were joking and affectionate with each other all their lives.
But there is no evidence of their lively personalities
in the traditional poses and portraits they had taken of them.
These photos are all we had to recall the vital, real people they were.
So, in my portraiture, I use techniques that encourage a couple
to express their “lovey dovey” feelings for each other.
This portrait always lightens the mood of the couple and creates terrific images.
How great for a couple to have a visible image that shows their affection.
What a great way for children to remember their parents as real people.
My mission as a Portrait Artist is to capture the feelings of love in a lasting way
– for now – and especially for later.
