Fine Family Portraits are
truly Family Art Treasures.
is an artistic representation of a person or people in which
the facial expression is predominant and reveals the likeness,
personality and mood. Portraiture is the art of capturing
the essence of the subject, whether relationships, personality
or emotion, and transposing it to paper, canvas or stone.
Portraiture vs Documentary Photos...
Anyone with a camera can snap a picture. If you can turn on
a light switch and focus, you qualify to operate a fixed-beam
"portrait studio" such as found in the "Big
Box" outlets. These snapshot portraits are valuable as
inexpensive documentary photographs.
art portraiture reached a pinnacle during the "High Renaissance"
period with such masters as Da Vinci,Rembrandt, Titian,
etc. With the advent of photographic science came the Photographic
Portrait Artist. The traditions of fine art portraiture
were passed from the painting masters on to photographic artists.
today's modern world, the magic of photographic science is
available to everyone thanks to one-use, "disposable"
cameras, digital cameras, and an abundance of one-hour labs
and computer printers. Today, everybody is able to enjoy making
photographs, and try their hand at being artistic.
with any vocation, there are some people who are drawn to
the art and science of portrait photography, who study
it, and dedicate themselves to the artistry of photography
as their life's work. I am one such person. And
in case you missed it on the Home page, I GUARANTEE
you will be Thrilled, not just satisfied with the portraits
I make for you!I am dedicated to creating the
very finest family portraits you've ever had made, whether
in studio, or on location anywhere in Hawaii!___SPC II

A Photograph is a Photograph...Right?....
are two basic genres of portraiture: Literal,
and Interpretive. Within these genres there are many
stylesdefined by lighting, pose,
camera angle and props. Literal Portraits are
nature and have the subject(s) looking back at the viewer,
and usually in an obviously posed posture. Interpretive
Portraits have a more candid appearance where the subject(s)
are not looking back at the viewer, and appear to be
involved in some kind of activity. But what really
makes the difference in a fine family portrait is the time,
sensitivity and care that the artist puts into
the creation of your portrait!
Why I Love Making Family Portraits
up with two older sisters and two older brothers, and both parents
was a wonderful, hopeful, exciting and sometimes even a little
bit scary experience for me. (Older brothers can be ruthless...)
I fondly remember the "Family Room" in our house,
and Family Nights when we'd all go to a matinee movie, then
have dinner together, then maybe a board game or watch a special
TV show. I remember there were portraits in the Family Room
and Living Room as well as snapshots all down the hallway my
mom referred to as the "Rogues Gallery". Unfortunately
for me, over the years many of these family heirlooms have been
lost. So you see I have a real understanding of the value of
fine, artistic family portraits that capture and
preserve the individual personalities within the whole family
dynamic. I have always been drawn to art...(excuse pun, please..).
I've always enjoyed looking at art, and I've always loved creating
art! I love art in drawing, painting, and sculpture. I also
love art in music, poetry, performance, and I love art photography.
I love creating Family Portraits because I have
a great appreciation for family portraits personally. And because
I love making art with special meaning.
Your Family Is Unique
