Fine Art Portraits
Something very close to my heart are fine art portraits. I have always loved this style of photography. The images created in a fine art portraiture session are emotive. They evoke a sense of spirit, connection, truth. It is my job to capture the subject and express who they are. Capture the unique, beautiful, quiet inner self in an image.
Using 18th century painted portraiture as my inspiration, the studio lighting is used to create a “painterly” feel. To create timeless, beautiful fine art portraiture that can be displayed on your wall for an eternity. They are a legacy to your family. They will last a lifetime, and can be passed down from generation to generation.
Fine Art Portraits
In a fine art portraiture session, you will be guided every step of the way. I will help you to choose outfits that will compliment the style of the shoot, and guide you with colours and style that will photograph beautifully. I offer a beautiful range of gorgeous vintage dresses for girls aged 3-16, as well as jewellery, flower crowns, scarves and fresh flowers, all for use during the session if you don’t have your own. I will guide you as to hair styles, and offer simple styling using beautiful flowers and pins, as well as adding curls. For boys, I have a growing collection of waistcoats, shirts and hats, all in a timeless style.
Children and adults who come for fine art portraits are guided every step of the way, as to how to move, where to place their hands, their expression, face, absolutely everything, down to the very last pinky. The sessions are lots of fun, and even the youngest of models can achieve the look and posing I teach them.
In a one-hour fine art portrait session, there is enough time for backdrop and outfit changes, so we can create a beautiful variety of images. Siblings can be posed separately as well as together.
But fine art portraits aren’t just for children. They are for everyone. Take the image below for example. My subject was painted in porcelain slip to create a cracked, statuesque type look, and we experimented with light, and used flour, to create these gorgeous, emotive images. We aimed to create pieces that were an artwork. And I love every one of them.
Fine art portraiture sessions are $150, which includes a one hour session, guidance with styling, use of outfits, jewellery, flowers and props, fully guided posing within the session and my time to fully edit your beautiful gallery and present it to you in person. Products and packages are then purchased separately at your ordering session.
Can’t you imagine the impact these beautiful portraits can make in the entrance of your home? Or down your hallway? Or hung above your fireplace? The possibilities are endless. I would absolutely love to help you create an amazing wall collection for your home.
