There are three specific thoughts that go through my mind when creating a custom portrait: is there fabulous lighting? Is a strong emotion present? Is there anything weird growing out of the subjects' head? Naturally, there are many other aspects that make up the timeless images I pride myself on, but those are the three criteria that need to be present in every frame off of my camera.
In my parents' house hang two large, beautiful images. They are the baby portraits of two of my great-grandfathers. One of these framed images has surpassed the century mark and the other is approaching that milestone. They are priceless. They are family treasures. They are heirlooms.
To create an heirloom, the first step must be made. The custom images we create together will eventually be like the baby portraits hanging in my parents' house. Portraits are one of the few investments you will make that increase their value every time you merely look at them.
