Fine Art Portraiture on Film

It’s hard to believe that we’re almost a quarter of the way through 2017 and that I haven’t posted content in a very long time.  That all changes now as now I have many more items of interest to write about.

Life is Great!

It’s been quite sometime since I’ve taken time to write on my blog and quite a lot has happened since last post in November 2015!  First I hope this finds everyone well and that life is good for them.  I know it’s pretty darn great for me.

Studio portraits are not dead

I’m not sure when the studio portrait ran into having a bad rap, but I’m here to tell you they are alive and kicking with Pete Rezac Photography.  The temperature is always perfect, it never rains, the winds are calm unless we turn on a fan.  Essentially, environmentally speaking it’s the best possible  situation!

Fall Family Portraits

Ah my favorite time of year is almost upon us.  I saw my first katydid leaf bug this afternoon and took a picture of it.  I showed the picture of it to a friend of ours who teaches High School Biology and she told me to mark it on the calendar as the sighting of a katydid means 30 days until our first frost.  That in turn reminded me that the busiest time of year for me is almost here:  Fall Family Portraits!

Family Portrait

I was commissioned by Catherine and James earlier this month to create a series of family portraits of them and their two beautiful daughters.  A few days before our session Catherine contacted me to let me know that their family had grown since our consultation with the addition of a new golden doodle puppy, and would it be possible to include him on a few frames as well.  How was I suppose to say no to photographing a puppy?  Especially when he gave me expressions like this?

My baby is 7 years old! Where has the time gone?

I’m in the business of documenting families visual history.  Through family portraits, portraits of their children,  school portraits, etc.  Sometimes I get so busy with it all that I forget that my kiddos need formal portraits to document their visual history too.

Family Portrait

I had the privilege of photographing Tara and her kids, her sister Erica and her kids, and their mother last month.  Tara and her mom came in last Friday to view the proofs and these were a few of their favorites.    They picked one out for Erica, as she was visiting from out of town, but thought she would love the image of her son and daughter.  I had a great time working with this family and I hope these bring many enjoyable memories for them for years to come.Thank you Tara for commissioning me to create these pictures for you and your family!
