Pet portrait sessions have been among my favorites this past year. For a couple with no “human” kids to a family whose dog has become the oldest sibling, a pet is a central figure in the dynamics of any household. Whatever role they play in your family, celebrate this member with their own portrait photography session or accompanied by the rest.
I first heard the term “previsualization” at 19 years-old in a large format photography class. The idea of “the ability to anticipate a finished image before making the exposure”. I’ll be honest, the zone system eludes me to this day and I don’t see the print in my minds eye the moment I snap it. But, when I’m photographing dogs, kids or weddings, as the session progresses I get an idea in my head of how these moments will looked displayed on the wall. To me, having that finished product to enjoy in a tangible way, everyday, is the most rewarding part of my job.
We’ll be displaying my portrait photography for the month of April. Stop in to see samples of the finished product that Anthology can make for your home. Even if it’s not a photo I took, bring us the images, art or objects you want displayed in your home and we’ll design custom framing that you’ll be able to enjoy for years to come.
A client brought us this amazing commissioned painting. He needed it to be a little larger to fit the space he and his wife wanted to put it in. We chose a frame from Larson Juhl’s Catalina line and a nice crisp white liner to create some separation from the art and the frame. The results are obvious. Not only did we achieve the desired size but we also created an elegant presentation that highlights the paintings warmth. Next time you purchase a painting remember that a well framed painting is much better than just a naked canvas.
