It's been a while I admired a decision to keep up with one direction - the portrait photography. Thereafter I've seen many hints of this as a good choice. Not easy one though, but so useful.
I've heard so much about why "should I go with a plain open face, on my own, neither with the fox furs on my shoulders, nor with the peacock at my knees, not with the look of stranger, and without any special expressions." Come just as you are. Like the one off the good magazine cover, like the portrait off the wall, which hangs there for ages, like real you. The one you know, the one you believe you know, the one you really need to know the best.
Natural portrait is an exciting journey into yourself which reveals and brings onward your maturity & your inner child, your vulnerability and your strength. "How are you" isn't just a formal question, neither "who are you." Many sincere & kind words to all people I've been lucky to cooperate. Going together through the portrait photo session delivered us at the new quality level of trust.
