Baby, Oh Baby! I've Got An i-Phone, Do I need Professional Portraits?

A couple of days ago I saw a commercial for the new i-Phone that showed a very nice picture of a little girl and the announcer said.."i-Phone, the only camera you'll ever need...". It got me thinking about how one phrase like that along with a really great product could change the perception of many in regards to commissioning portraits. After all, why bother, you've got a great camera (phone) right? Well, maybe no, not right.

While you will certainly capture great moments with your phone, there's a lot to be said for the experience of participating in a portrait. A beautiful portrait of your baby is a co-creation between you and your Artist. From the first consultation, your trained Photographer is learning about your likes and desires, suggesting ideas that meld with your tastes, molding the session to give you a perfect piece of art that is your son or daughter. On Portrait Day, you'll have the opportunity to play with your baby while your Photographer styles the session, with background, lighting and sometimes props to give you a designer image that you will be not only proud to display in your home but also to give as gifts.

A Portrait is much different than a snapshot. A well done Portrait is a study of your child at that moment of life, a personality essay captured in a moment or two of time. It takes into account that your baby's miniscule fingernails will never be so tiny again, toes will never be so round and fat. It's not just a smiling face in a stroller but all the details that are gone way too soon, A Portrait is the most personal art you will ever own,
