Portraiture is one of the types of photography I like most. It is a real pleasure to find the expression of a person's personality in their eyes. If you find yourself in a session with me, you will find that I make every effort to help you relax and enjoy it. All your really need to do is relax and be yourself. We have all been crippled by years and years of "smile for the camera". I won't insist that you smile...
Children are very interesting to photograph. I have found that parents are so concerned with the outcome that they can inadvertently stress out the child. If everyone just relaxes, a kid will naturally relax and deliver. Take a look at Violet. You can easily see how relaxed and happy she is.
