Its 2019 and I am so excited for the new year! I have so many plans and goals for the year and one of those was to do a Valentines themed session! However, when I originally thought of this idea, I wanted to do it a little bit different then what I had seen in the past. I wanted these images to be refined, sophisticated and rich in color which is when I decided that they needed to be "painterly" styled portraits! Therefore, this Valentines season, I bring to you: Painterly Valentines Mini Sessions!
"What are painterly portraits?" Painterly styled portraits are images that are taken as a photograph and manipulated in post-processing to give the image the look of a painting. Thus, they are "painting-like portraits". I absolutely love this type of artistic portraiture and especially as wall art. These are the types of images that when your friends and family walk in your house, they have to say "wow!"
To start these sessions off, I started by making my own hand painted canvas backdrop. I wanted to photograph my clients behind a bold and rich color such as red that boldly screamed "Valentines!". From here, I gathered together vintage props, a blend of fresh and old roses, antique furniture, rugs and lighting equipment to further give the images a vintage inspired look. After my first session with everything in place, I couldn't be more thrilled! The bold colors and old-world props lent themselves to such antique-like yet beautiful images- exactly what I was looking for!
Now, I have opened these sessions to the public and I am beyond thrilled with the reception! These Painterly Valentines Mini Sessions are available to all groups including, couples, singles, families & children. If you are looking for portraits, prints and products that show the love in your life paired perfectly with rich, beautiful and timeless tones, these sessions are for you!
