The Nature of a Portrait

Portrait photography intends to depict the essence as well as the beauty of its subjects. Since some of our emotions, such as laughter or surprise, aren’t permanent, they represent only a moment in time. If we want to communicate the true spirit of a person, their character, we look for a serious or calm facial expression that will undoubtedly register an array of subtle emotions ranging from dreaminess to fearlessness and everything in between.

We can express a person’s character with a full face portrait a three-quarter view or a side profile like this very image of our bride. Here we emphasize her natural grace and collected presence.
