Snapshot or Legacy Portrait – It’s All Good, Just Different

April 25, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

I started writing this blog post with the notion of opining on the difference between snapshots and legacy portraits, which is a favorite theme of mine – as it’s also my business. But since a photograph is “worth a thousand words”, why not let a very few of the images, both snapshots and legacy portraits, do the talking for me.

So I give you a smattering of both genres of a beautiful little girl who is my granddaughter, photographed in a number of locations, including Norway, Iceland, a zoo, the U.S. Northeast, and my studio, both indoors and out in the garden.

The 4 composites are separated into fun snapshots and portraits. The portraits are styled, propped, and lighted, in an artful manner, calm and restful in expression, producing wall art that is a pleasure to view over time. Snapshots speak for themselves, whether being stared down by a Japanese Macaque, or thrilling at the idea of standing at the edge of a deep crevasse, a rift valley created by the separation of 2 tectonic plates – in Iceland. But I digress – both are necessary, as we need both beauty and mirth to enlarge life, and for me, photographs of my children and grandchildren fill that role perfectly.
