Creating Portraits, More Than Just Pictures | Northern VA Family Photographer

“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.” Paul Caponigro, Photographer. This is one of our favorite photography quotes because it captures the essence of fine art portraiture. As we often say to our clients around the Waterford, VA and South Riding, VA areas, family pictures are beautiful because of what they capture. Family portraits, however, are photos elevated to an artistic quality. Simply stated, portraits can equal art.

Think about what that means.

As a family photographer specializing in fine art portraits, we don’t just usher you into our studios and snap away. We build relationships. We get to know you so that we can take a portrait of who you truly are – not just an image on paper. Anyone with a camera can do that.

The more comfortable you are with us as your photographer, the more comfortable you will be in front of our cameras, and, ultimately, the better you will look in your portraits. When you are relaxed, the “real” you is reflected and captured candidly. We work hard to capture that honest reflection of you.

Before you even arrive at our studios, we will ask you a few questions. These help us to understand more about you and how you hope to use your portraits so that we can better serve you as your family photographer. Again, building relationships with our clients helps us to create portraits rather than pictures.

If you’d like to work with us in the Waterford, VA, South Riding, VA and surrounding area for your next family portraits, please contact our studio. We’d be happy to discuss your vision for your portrait art. Building legacy through family portraiture rather than family pictures is something we know and do well!
