Age and portraiture ... thoughts from Steve Rouch:
I have noticed that the older my clients are, the more they value classical portraiture.
Simply put it is because of two reasons. One is change. They have experienced change in their life and live in an astonished state as people, places and things come and go. As the Fiddler on the Roof says....”seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers blossoming even as we gaze”. With change comes loss, something younger folks do not deal with much. As we age we turn endless possibilities into memories of what really happened in our lives. The second force is memories. The older you get, the more life is about memories about what happened and less about dreams about what will happen.
If nothing changed on Earth I would be out of a job instantly.
Since we all age it is prudent to literally invest in memories. The higher quality the better. Selfies are ok but if that is all you have down the trail I believe you will regret it.
That is where I come in. I am a Master photographer. That means I can make you very happy. You do not have to worry about a shoot not to your liking. I have figured out exactly how to make anyone serious about owning great photography happy......guaranteed. I use a large monitor and show clients their images every 10 minutes. I keep clients in charge of what I do so there is no way you end up unhappy with what we create together as a team.
I also have a “you name your price” policy so clients do not go overboard with their investments.
Clients LOVE this. It is easy to get carried away with your investment because the images are so good.
I offer a way for you to keep all the images, on a disk, copyright released at YOUR price. Please ask about this. Its so fun!
Don't let selfies overtake your memories. They serve their purpose but classical portraiture really knocks clients out. They love well lit, clear, color coordinated and imaginative images. I hope I get a chance to serve you!

"Steve Rouch did a phenomenal job with our family portraits. Over the holidays, I had a few relatives from out of town stop by my home. They saw the new family portraits on the wall and commented how wonderful the pictures were. My aunt and uncle were impressed with the pictures Steve created and my family is too...
Steve and our family talked about pricing beforehand and what would be fair for him and our family. We were satisfied with the price of the pictures and of course, the quality of the pictures."

"I would highly recommend choosing Steve Rouch when looking for a photographer to capture your life's treasured memories. Our photos look natural, real and not fake. We were able to look at them after each shoot and see what things we wanted to do differently and also had an option to take some more of the same pose, if we felt things didn't look right. He was very professional, kind and patient with the kids and as we chose different poses and outfits. Thanks again for the wonderful photo session!"

What makes us special?
You can have the "ultimate portrait experience!” Steve is able to analyze each human face to find the most flattering angles. Steve has learned to literally “paint with light” with up to 7 lights in his camera room with precise directional capabilities. These lights put a twinkle in the eye, paint each strand of hair, play with highlight & shadow & sculpt images into breathtaking beauty.
