  • Eagle Scout Portraits Pictures of America's Future Leaders When we create portraits of Eagle Scouts, we understand the importance of creating these pictures of 'America's Future Leaders.'

  • 'Playin' In The Band' - Senior Pictures Professional Portraits of Consequence Senior pictures should be a portrait of consequence, telling a story about a rite-of-passage marking the transition to adulthood. That's why we are always looking for a way to peer deeper into our portrait subjects, looking for a way to show their power, vitality and beauty. We're always looking for a way to tell the story, whether that be via athletics, activities, academics or via scouting (Eagle Scouts.) ... [read more]
  • A customer comment from the University of La Verne: "Thank you so very much - we are very pleased and can not thank you enough for your attention to the matter and going beyond what we were expecting.

  • One of the  amazing endowments of a ballet dancer is the appearance of  floating through air.....the weightlessness while gliding over the stage.  A ballet dancer's movement, while suspended in air, is so fleeting, so hard to capture in the mind's eye. So, it's time to take a look at their dance via a still life, frozen in time. In these ballet dancer pictures you'll see an interpretation of art, grace and power they manage. This is a continuing photographic look at Generation Y and the directio... [read more]
  • What is the correct number of senior pictures to purchase for your home today? Parents purchasing professional portraits from a studio are very likely to purchase for their own home use, perhaps an 8 x 10 portrait for a 'love wall' or an 11 x 14 (or maybe a 16 x 20) for wall display. But what they forget is the future. Young adults will someday marry and have a spouse. From this come children and the need for copies of portraits purchased today. When a 10-year-old boy or girl sees a portra... [read more]
  • When you purchase senior pictures who were they really for? Many of us would say, 'they are for my parents' and of course, my grandparents need some. As a portrait photographer, I hear this all the time. We think this way because we have a tendency to buy portraits to fulfill our current needs: and we forget about the future. What future needs do you have? Why do you need more than one wall portrait, with some 5x7s for your grandparents and a couple of wallets to hand out to friends. Buying... [read more]
  • Will you sell me the original portrait prints you have of your grandparents? Would you sell them for $50? 100? I'll give you $300 for the original prints, okay? Probably not! In fact, if your parents found out you sold those prints they would be livid and you'd lose the car for months. Yet today, most high school (and college) seniors focus on having digital images in their camera, phone, computer or memory stick. And these are not formal portraits, these are snapshots that exist only a... [read more]
