Newborn Photography
Now my kids are grown and gone. I shut the door at night and say my prayers for them but they are not in the house anymore. They are far away. I miss them daily and now put the energy of missing them into every child portrait that comes in the door. I know someday those parents too will feel this sadness and I want to put my all into capturing them in this special time of their lives. - Steve Rouch

Nothing is sweeter than your newborn baby ... those dimples and wrinkles won't last forever! Let Steve Rouch capture this fleeting time with a series of newborn portraits Steve likes to call newborn vignettes! Since many newborns are not comfortable anywhere but in their mother's arms, moms are encouraged to wear clothing that will not distract from the baby or the background, (black or white are good choices), and Steve can shoot right past Mom to capture baby. Portraits can be done in color, B&W, or sepia.

You can have the "ultimate portrait experience”!! Read on ...

Master Steve Rouch has traveled across the United States for the last 35 years studying the lost art of “classical fine art portraiture” with internationally renowned artists.

With the understanding of this art form, 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 and shadow and sculpt images into breathtaking beauty.

Virtually all of Steve’s clients share the human concern of “not being photogenic” or “not liking past pictures." Everyone shares this feeling including Steve himself! He has been trained to help people look younger, slimmer and tanner than they ever dreamed. With the use of a sizeable monitor, Steve works with each client to find the perfect outfit, background, soft flattering lighting, body language and expression to create a “work of art.”

Part of the magic of this experience is that when Steve was little he decided Peter Pan was right… It is NOT fun to grow up!!!… you will find him to be a playful and fun person to work with. He is the biggest 5 year old in town and he will invite the 5 year old in you “out to play” during the session. (Not literally, but he loves to have this experience be charged with laughter and happiness….don’t we all look out best when we feel this way?)

Of course you can bring loved ones to either be in the session with you or observe from another room thru a closed circuit TV. You will be amazed to see how Steve builds sets and backgrounds that perfectly blend with each clothing change so that each image created ends up looking like an Old Masters Painting! Steve loves to go outside as well to rustic settings that feature ivy covered walls, fences and trees….all just behind his studio.

A few days after your session is done you will be able to enjoy, view and choose your images with a fine artist as your presenter. Highlights of your session will be presented to you in a musical show with a “Ken Burns” documentary feeling to the presentation! Each image will then be presented to you in approximately 30”x40” size on a huge screen in our “mini theatre.” The magic is just beginning! Imagine having a fine artist at your disposal to sit with you as you go thru your session and transform images to your liking or sit back and marvel at their suggestions….!

“I would like to see that color image turned to sepia brown….could you crop it here just a little?….now could we make it lighter?…..can you remove that blemish?….my crows feet?” Watch as the image transforms to your most exacting specifications! What you see is what you will be getting so you will be assured of the ultimate in satisfaction!

Fine art portraiture is not expensive….its priceless and ironically the LEAST expensive investment you will ever make! Divide how long you will have the portrait into what your investment is and it works out to pennies a day! (We honestly are known for our affordability….we do that by design because we love what we do and always want to be serving clients.)
