portraits

Capturing a moment in someone's life is like writing history. Every second in our life is unique and by taking pictures, we can stop in time. We can come back and live the moment again later. Photography is a mission for me. A portrait is a time travel full of smiles and love. It's looking into people.

"It's one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it's another thing to make a portrait of who they are."   Paul Caponigro 

It is my pleasure to meet every single person on Earth.  And an honor to look for their inner beauty with my camera.  


What to wear to a photo session?

  • Keep accessories and jewelry simple, or skip it altogether. NO PRINTS.
  • Stick to solid, muted colors-earthy tones, muted gem tones, monochrome, beige, grey and taupe are great examples. Those softer, neutral colors provide more focus for the people posing in the photos.
  • Low contrast outfits (if your shirt is pure white, go for lighter color bottom pieces.)
  • Flatter your figure-don't wear clothes that are entirely too tight or loose, or clothes that accentuate your insecurities. Wear something you feel beautiful in.
  • Wear sleeves or quarter-sleeves if weather permits. In my experience, the women I photograph are most insecure about the way their arms appear. Covering your arms may take the focus away from them and flatter their shape at the same time.
  • Dress in long skirts, pants, or dresses. There is just something about a long flowy dress that photographs so beautifully, and you will have so much fun wearing one!
  • Wear your hair how you like it, but typically stay away from ponytails. Typically, the looser and more flexible the style, the better!
  • Coordinate your clothing-in group photos, try to keep everyone on the same page and color palette of 2-4 colors. The best tip I recommend for a place to start your family outfit planning is to pick one item of clothing with a few colors (like mom or daughter's dress) and pull colors from that for everyone else to wear. Dress like you go together.
