I think it’s fair to say that a traditional boring family portrait can’t even begin to capture the craziness of the times we’re living in today.
From everything shutting down because of COVID to the suggestion of injecting bleach into our veins to wildfires to hurricanes to RBG passing weeks before the election, how could a regular photo ever capture what it’s like to be alive right now?
Well, I didn’t want to get through these crazy times without something to remember it by, so I’ve been creating fun family portraits of my family so we could all look back in the years to come and remember these uniquely different times.
So, if you’re looking for a family portrait that’s different and you want to look back and remember your cute family during crazy times, call me and let’s talk.
Sometimes you just have to take one for the team, which is exactly what I did by letting my kids shave a mohawk into my hair.
The great thing about my creative family portraits is that I can shave your head right in Photoshop without a clipper ever touching your head.
For this creative portrait I call “Mohawk”, I put the Wacom tablet pen down and pulled out the clippers to shave a mohawk into my hair the old fashioned way.
How does this work?
Now, you might be wondering, “How in the world do you create all these crazy pictures?”
Of course, that’s all very TOP SECRET.
Ok, it’s not really…
Thanks to the magic of Photoshop and Lightroom, and a whole lot of patience, I’m able to bring your family portrait to life in a uniquely different way.
Check out the before photo compared to the end result.
Every single portrait I create goes through this transformation from a regular picture to an epic family portrait with style.
Even the one I create for you will go through this transformation.
From regular pictures to the epic family portrait, however, requires piecing several images together before spending hours and hours on the artwork that ultimately brings them to life.
This crazy portrait of my getting a mohawk actually took? Photos to create.
Even after creating well over 100 of these fun portraits, I love seeing the transformation from regular and boring to amazing!
If you’ve ever sat through a photo session for a traditional boring family portrait, then you know how much they pretty much suck.
Dad would rather be getting a tooth pulled and the kids…
Well, you know how difficult that can be, right?
My Photo Session is WAY DIFFERENT and is actually a lot of fun.
Even dad will be laughing and having fun.
Before I can start laying down any of the artwork, I first have to capture the photos that will serve as my canvas.
While the original photos don’t look like anything special, there’s actually a lot of planning with angles and lighting that must be considered.
Your portrait will only be as good as the photos we start with.

At this point, you’ve gotta be biting at the bit to get on one of these crazy family portraits, and if you are, I can’t wait to talk to you.
If you have kids, then you know time flies fast and before you know it, they’re all grown up and you’ve missed this opportunity.
I don’t want you to miss your opportunity!
