How you can speak or express what you have to share through Designer Portraiture
Genuine Image Photography specializes in intentional designer portraiture. What this means is the portrait (photo) has a job and function where it is intended for home decor, a gift or marketing.
We have a unique process in creating our designs that we would like to share with you. We start with education so you know what is possible and available. We have found if people have good information they can make the right decisions to take them to their ideal out come or goal. In your design process we ask you specific questions to reveal the true desired need and want. It is at this point we start to sketch your outline and create the concept of what we are soon to create. By having an end goal in mind, a VISION, we set everything in place for success.
Creating a vision to work toward is the first step. Think of your portrait as a summary of who you are as an individual, family or team. The audience can be for the whole world or just one person, who are you sending your message to?
We all have something we want to say. Powerfully we can speak though body language and emotion. First we need to stop and think for a moment. Who am I speaking to? What do I want them to know? This is very different for you, in the different areas of your life, than it is for someone else. We do not assume that we know what is right for you. That's why we ASK the right questions and carefully LISTEN. Through an interview process a clear vision apears in our minds and on the design sheet. Now we have something to work toward becuase we now have a destination and can create a clear map to get the right results for you so when all is said and done you can say, "That's it! That's me/us." It is time to have a portait that truly represents you and for this stage of life you will be able to have and share a very attractive image of yourself.
I personally invite you to a complimentary Design Appointment so we can create this vision together. It is educational and quite fun. At times it can be quite moving especially when speaking about the people you love. This is such a rewarding experience from beginning to end. I am excited to take this fun experience with you, please email us at [email protected] or call to our studio office at 425-831-7748. -Brenda
