Let Countryside Photographers capture the energy of your family in a creative style that ranges from bold and direct to soft and sensitive. In today's society, professional portraits can serve as a decorative focal point for any home or office. A room becomes more personalized when a family portraiture is placed on the wall.
Memorable portraits take careful planning, and the details are very important to your portrait’s success. In a family group, proper clothing coordination is critical. When decorating your home, a major concern is to coordinate the colors and tones of the walls, carpets, drapery and furniture. Similar coordination is necessary when selecting clothing for a group portrait. The goal of any fine portrait is to direct the viewer’s eye to the face(s) in the portrait. All other elements should be secondary. For groups, simple long sleeved garments in medium to dark tones of brown, gray, burgundy, green or blue are pleasing choices when photographed against a medium or dark background. White or pastel colors work well on a light background.
Our goal is to create portraiture as individual as the subjects we photograph. To make this happen, we offer a pre-portrait consultation to every family who schedules an appointment. Let us help you prepare for your portrait by talking about portrait styles, locations and clothing, as well as where you wish to hang your portrait in your home. The more planning we put into your portrait session, the happier you will be with the final result. Call us today to set up your family portrait and no cost consultation!
An investment in a family portrait is an investment in your family's heritage!
