Portraits are a wonderful way to immortalize you and your family. There are different styles of portraits. When most people think of portraits, they think of corny old school J.C. Penny family photos. Or they tend to visualize portraits of the rich and famous depicted in museums across the globe. At Miami Wedding Photography, we do portraits differently. Most people are familiar with traditional and glamour style portraits. We invite you to step outside of your comfort zone and try surreal, environmental or a conceptual portrait. Lifestyle portraits featuring your family is very popular. To explore your options within portrait photography, schedule a complimentary consultation.
We love to do family portraits and birthday events. It’s nice to have a new family portrait done every seven years. In this way you can have visual documentation of your family’s growth and development. One of our favorite family portraits is to feature multiple gender specific generations - grandpa, father, son and grandson. Four generations of women and girls showcasing your family’s lineage and progress is a wonderful gift. We can create a bound book featuring your family’s portraits in black and white. These images can also be downloaded to a thumb drive to be distributed to your loved ones during the holidays. If you’d like to have your favorites enlarged and framed, we can facilitate that for you.
Some might consider it vein to have yourself immortalized in a formal portrait. It’s no different than a selfie, yet more professional and long lasting. Instagram and Facebook can go out of business tomorrow, but a formal portrait will last beyond your lifetime. They say that if you don’t post it, it doesn’t exist. We will provide you with digital images to post on your favorite social media sites as you wish. Personal portraits are a great way to remind yourself and others of how far you’ve come. If you’ve experienced a milestone or survived cancer, use a portrait to tell the story.
The reality is that relationships have their ebb and flow. Nothing on this planet is perfect. When you have found your better half, the yin to your yang, freeze the moment in time with a gorgeous collection of portraits. These photos will be a constant reminder of your love when you hit a rough patch. We have a tendency to romanticize couples that have remained together for decades. No one knows the heartache, the level of commitment and love that has endured. This is something to celebrate, especially in today’s version of instant marriages. Commemorate your love and commitment with an anniversary couple’s portrait.
Types of Portraits
Most people are familiar with glamour shots, lifestyle and traditional portraits. These are just a few of the options available to you. If you are more artistic, we suggest a surreal style portrait. Surreal portraits illustrate your subconscious mind. We use technology to create something out of this world. Conceptual portraits depict a hidden meaning. They look like something you would discover in a high-end art gallery. This type of portrait is perfect for the uber experimental and creative. Abstract portraits are designed to evoke emotion and create art. They can resemble the subject but will not be identical to his physical characteristics. If you thought portraits were boring and conservative – think again.
