OCTOBER 2021

 

***Hello Jeff!    I  just wanted to send you a quick message to thank you again for the beautiful pictures of my family. As you know, the pictures were for my parents as gifts. When my mother opened them up, she cried for about 5 minutes she loved them so much! You did an incredible job. I have shown the pictures to many people, and have already given your name and contact information to three different people: two weddings and another family portrait.   Christine Seed. 

 

 ***From Colin McDermott, Dec. 2020:  I just picked up our family’s prints as  part of a Christmas gift, and couldn’t be happier with the results. Had a really easy-going time on the day of the shoot. Really professional finish to the photos.  ***Would highly recommend Jeff for any chance you need a photographer.

 

***Dear Jeff:    I would like to take this time to send you a quick note with a card of thanks. Thank you for your professionalism and gracious nature during our photo session, and the meetings that followed.  We were anxious before the session; but after your warm greeting, and with your easy nature, I noticed the girls and my husband relax. This then allowed me to relax as well.  You engaged my daughter in the process and that meant a great deal to me. After the session she said great things about the whole experience. We all walked away with a feeling of accomplishment and I was looking forward to s eeing the results of the photo shoot. When the pictures were ready and we came to see you, I can’t tell you how relieved I was to see how attractively the pictures turned out. And, for me, they captured the feeling of the session too. We really had a lot of pictures to choose from as well. And, with your help Stephanie and I were able to work on the elimination process. (Not once did I feel pressured by you to hurry it along or to take more than what we wanted—very refreshing).  This past weekend when my husband and I went out of town for my father and brother’s birthday celebration, we took their copies to them. The photos were a hit and they kept showing them to visitors who dropped by their house.

So, thank you Jeff and I wish you continued success. I will definitely be referring you to anyone who mentions wanting to have their picture taken. Jennifer Beauvais.

“Treasured Family Portraiture”

Family portraiture is produced in two distinctive styles; formal or casual. Casual sessions are informal with the focus being on capturing the family’s spontaneous   expressions. Formal photography as well, represents the personalities of the individuals and entails men wearing suit jackets and ties and ladies in skirts or dresses. Photo sessions are commonly at our professional studio or at a location of your choice. In home family portraits as well as outdoor portraits in a park environment (weather and season permitting) are also possible.

 We also offer  “SPECIALLY PRICED  IN  STUDIO  PORTRAIT PACKAGES”  that include the session fee and professionally  produced  photographs from your session.  All imagery may be produced in your choice of either colour, black and white or sepia tone. For clients seeking professional photographic wall art portraiture, it is available in several sizes and photo finishing surfaces including our preferred artist’s stretcher frame canvas portraits. Family and children’s portraits combined with canvas mounting and custom print making techniques render stunning, timeless wall art pieces. Numerous professional services are provided to our clients such as custom printing, correctional retouching, professional albums, presentation display folios, archival acid free dry mounting materials and lamination of your favourite portrait imagery.

 *In addition, for the true connoisseur of black and white portrait imagery, we use actual black and white film for your photo session which is hand developed and hand printed into wall art gallery portraits in our own traditional wet darkroom. This is custom printing and receives a great amount of attention to detail in the print making process ensuring these portraits, will be truly museum quality archival photographs.

*As  a professional darkroom printer  in Ottawa for a duration of  40 years,  this  service has now become extremely rare  and  appreciated  by clients  who   truly cherish  high  quality photographic craftsmanship.

Clothing

Clothing selection for your photo session is very important! Generally speaking, clients should strive to wear clothing of similar tonality and/or colour. This will produce a theme of continuity throughout the sessions and will ensure that the faces of the people take precedence as opposed to the clothing.

For example: I often suggest to clients that they wear white shirts and blue jeans for a casual photo portrait session so the clothing does not become competitive between each individual. Please ensure that casual clothing does not contain any brand names or labels! Avoid striped or busy patterned fabrics. As a general rule, darker toned clothing will help individuals appear slimmer in appearance and vice versa for bright toned clothing. As a suggestion for a trimmer appearance, wear medium to darker tones such as navy blue, dark greens, greys, burgundy or black. Please contact my Ottawa Photography studio for more insight if required.

With Good Wishes……Jeff Ryan.
