Creating That Special Gift

Happy Father's Day to all of the Dad's and a special thanks to the Mom's who put up with us all year long!

I would like to share my Father's Day gift with you.

My wife, Lisa, took this picture of our 6 month old daughter sitting on my guitar. I have played for over 20 years and it has always been a passion of mine. I usually bring out the guitar and play once a day. My daughter Kayla is my best audience, lately. She lays next to me relaxed and as still as could be listening intently and enjoying all of my songs. I treasure these moments!

This photograph is very special to me because it incorporates my passion for music and my beautiful daughter. What more could I ask for?

How can this photograph help you and your business?

Lisa will sometimes ask clients during the initial phone call about their hobbies and careers and often tries to incorporate them into the sitting.

We have used a briefcase, computer, stethoscope, musical instruments, sports equipment, firefighter or police uniform, helmets and hats just to name a few.

Try some of these ideas or think of some of your own to create a meaningful portrait for your clients. I guarantee they'll love it!!

Be creative and unique and clients will talk about YOU!!

Ohhh, I loved that idea! I have been taking photos of my 3 months old niece using a black background. However, I would like to know what type of background you use. I bought a black fabric at Walmart. But I'm not getting the rich black effect. Gisela
