Branding •  Portraits • Art

Maria and Maurice Hood

I work with you to create portraits that are between branding and art. Together, we express your message builds your brand and decorates your home or office.

During our initial meeting, we talk about the ideas and feelings you want to express.

Then I typically spend 2-3 hours brainstorming and creating a mood board to guide the portrait session. I’ll show you the mood board and we’ll discuss location, poses, colors, clothes and accessories.

The actual portrait session will be fun. You can choose the songs you want to hear. You can bring friends. To ensure you are LOVING what we are creating, we’ll look at the photos during the session. Based upon your feedback, we’ll keep working until you’re completely satisfied.

Soon after the portrait session, I’ll help you select the best images.

Then I’ll adjust the colors and tones of these images. I can also do some retouching, which includes removing any blemishes, brightening eyes and lightening teeth, reducing wrinkles sculpting your body to some extent.

Prices depend upon the amount of time involved in the planning, photographing and editing stages. You don’t have to worry about wasting money, however, because if you are not pleased with the results, you’ll get a complete refund.
