Now 100% DC - not as cool as I once was, but still
Christie Photo said:I really believe our job more than merely to take photos. Aren't we expected to make portaits?
Absolutely, but we don't have to do it all the same way. Some of us like to pretty people up, and make them glamorous, and some of us find human imperfection interesting. I've turned down people who I felt would be better served by a different photographer, but then again many of my clients comment that the reason they chose me was for the natural look.
It would be easy to Photoshop out the dirt, mosquito bites, and ink pen tatoo in this portrait, but to me they are part of the story of being two years old.
