There are many reasons why you might want to have a photograph taken of yourself or of a loved one.
Some examples might be: to demonstrate your love. To show pride in oneself. To capture a memory. To show you at your best when dating. Celebration of a birthday. Winning an award. A letter from the Queen. Gratitude for someone's kindness. A life event, such as a birth or a marriage. Graduation, Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Coming of age. Leaving home. Proposing. Engagement, or pre-wedding.
One thing is for certain, no moment will ever be repeated, and for that reason alone, it is worth having a professional photographer capture it in the best way possible
You can be sure that a portrait created by me will not be done to a formula. It will be unique.
