SIGNATURE PORTRAITS

The value of your legacy represents a lifetime of achievement. How should you document it for future generations? Our thoughts that come to mind are dignity and excellence. 

 

While we call these "Signature" Portraits, it is your emotional signature, not that of Kevin as the artist that is the goal. Your portrait tells a story, like a movie with one frame. It should invite thoughtful study and Kevin has the ability to tell this story based on you.
 
All our Signature Portraits are offered on fiber-based gelatin silver paper, created in the darkroom. No modern inkjet or giclee printer can approach the level of quality that true artisanal darkroom prints can provide.
 
We offer museum grade frames, lights, and nameplates befitting a portrait that represents you for hundreds of years.

Sessions last about an hour to hour and a half. We recommend that you or your assistant visit the studio in advance of the session if possible. Many notable individuals have time constraints and we respect them but ask that you give us the time to find who "you" are. We do have a Studio Tour video here if you want to learn more about our process.

COLOR  SIGNATURE PORTRAITS

When we added color canvas family portraits to our offerings in 2016, we knew that the business would scale and grow. This means that Kevin would not be able to create all the portraits the studio produced at some point. 

 

We created our black and white Signature Portraits for a certain clientele and we found that some wanted our best of the best in color as well. Our color Signature Portraits are shown here.

 

Kevin commented that his mother had a painted wall portrait hanging above the family piano for 50 years and he wanted to create a "Red Carpet" line featuring solo portraits of women in color. This also has become one of our Signature offerings.
 
We offer contemporary frames as well and at the 30" and up level, we provide complimentary frame
lights and a custom gold leaf hand-lettered nameplate.

The Signature Portrait session is focused on creating your dignified legacy and Kevin has the ability to find your emotional signature and capture it respectfully. Red Carpet sessions last about 3 hours including full hair and makeup and have unlimited looks. We recommend that you or your assistant visit the studio in advance of the session if possible. Many notable individuals have time constraints and we respect them but ask that you give us the time to find who "you" are. Contact us for more information and booking advice.
