Your Family Portrait
“You never get a second chance to make a first impression!”
For over 25 years Glenn has been capturing the joy of families in timeless portraits to be treasured for generations to come. Glenn’s portraits are artistic and focus on faces and the bonds that make your family special. With a plan to create a wall portrait to display in your home we offer packages that include canvas prints or gallery wraps as well as desk sized prints to share with family and friends. Your Martin Photography portrait will be a treasure in your home for years to come while becoming an heirloom for generation ahead. While digital files require a device and things that have to be plugged-in to enjoy them your wall portrait and desk prints are a constant reminder of your family’s joy and commitment to each other. When digital files have been lost in the cloud or storage media are obsolete your prints will still be enjoyed and add to your memories of great times together.
Glenn’s portrait style is squeezing close, hugging, and showing your personality. He uses few props and his backgrounds never distract from your family’s faces being the primary feature of the portrait. Your portrait will show your family – not some contrived scene or some huge scenic area with you as tiny afterthoughts in the picture. A family session includes multiple poses of your family together as well as smaller groups and individuals if desired.
While many photographers like using the term “natural light” to describe using only the sun as a light-source for portrait photography, Glenn’s years of study and experience allows him to use many light sources to sculpt and create a pleasing and natural look for you. Multiple lights indoors or supplemental lighting outdoors opens shadows and allows for selecting the best background while not having to squint to face the sun.
Artistic retouching enhances all Martin Photography portraits. Blemishes and stray hairs disappear, as do those issues that seem to show up just in time for picture day. A light softening of the skin or even a little slimming to help everyone look his or her absolute best add to the enjoyment of your portrait. Each person in a portrait is individually enhanced rather than some automated quick filter changing the entire portrait. Call us today to schedule your family portrait in our studio in Lawrenceville. Or let’s talk about an outdoor portrait at Sims Lake Park or a portrait at Freeman’s Mill Park – the possibilities are amazing!
Individual pricing for session and prints is also available
