NEW this year in the gardens, The Old Courtyard Wall Perfect clothing choices DawnAnn! It may feel odd to put on sweaters in summer, but it sure makes for a beautifully layered and textured portrait. The grey theme with a splash of plum was a stroke of genius.
The Bishoff family sees Maddy leave for her mission just as Tanner gets home. Glad they got a few days to see each other at least! We met up at 8 AM for this portrait session so we could get a crisp back-lit look on the group. We added a large softbox light from the right side to keep faces nice and bright and still maintain a natural look. I see a lot of photographers trying to use flash on camera for frontal fill light and it’s usually a bad idea, Kudos to the Bishoffs for choosing clothing that coordinates without getting to matchy. - Drake
Blast from the past on Tuesday. I haven’t seen this young couple since we lived in the Millcreek hood with them 20+ years ago. We’ve all since moved and lost touch. Remarkable to see this absolute knockout family reappear for a portrait this week. Johnsons, if you’re reading this, please know my very heartfelt best wishes follow you… keep squeezing his hand and please stay in touch. -Drake
They live all over the world but the eyes in this portrait are unmistakably from the same origin.
