Youth Portraits

Portrait of a Child
Those eyes, that expression,
here for a millisecond.
Perpetually moving,
beautiful chaos.

YOUTH PORTRAITS

I love a smile as much as the next, but often my favorite expressions are the ones that are filled with wonder. This guy has a lot of heart, seen in slight tilt of his head, the little lift in his chin and the brightness in his eyes. All warmth and kindness.

Special Thanks to the very talented photographer Patricia Holdsworth for  taking the time to share her amazing gift with us. The girls and I had so much fun working with Patricia, we’re still talking about it.This was such a special day spent with my girls. Mindy

CONNECTION

Experience and skill create beautifully lit, technically perfect portraits, what makes a portrait special is connection. For connection to take place the person being photographed needs to be really seen. I take a genuine interest in all of  the people I photograph. I want them to feel at ease, to feel confident, capable, attractive and interesting. I aspire to bring to light the uniqueness of their personality. 
The boy in this photograph is my beautiful grandson Jack. After seeing the photograph his mother posted “Grandma Patricia got this shot of Jack last night, my HEART is EXPLODING!” Sarah

A 22″x 30″ canvas of this image hangs in my office it brings me joy every time I see it. Nothing compares to a tangible real life print. You never have to search for it, it’s right there looking back.
