Have you ever looked at a magazine and think to yourself something just doesn't look right about this picture? Today you can't tell what's real and what's not. Every image you see in a magazine has been retouched. It has to be because today our society is so critical of the way we look. It's a vicious cycle. We create these unrealistic looks. And we try to live up to these unrealistic images.
Getting into photography, I have to know how to photoshop. I remove pimples, blemishes, and scars. I'll even remove a tattoo if the customer wants. It's hard not to go to far though. I've heard of photographers removing a birthmark from a baby's face. The parents were not happy because it changed how the baby looked.
Just about all my clients want me to make them look thinner and younger. I tell them I will make them look beautiful in their own way. I discourage them away from photoshop. They all know it can be done but I know and they'll know something just isn't right about this picture.
Located in West Tamarac, my studio can accommodate small families for group and individual portraits. If you prefer the park or beach, I have several locations I can recommend based on what kind of scenery you like.
Be sure to check the weather before booking an outdoor photo session. Depending on the forecast we may have to reschedule your shoot due to weather.
