What is a portrait?

Dictionary.com defines a portrait as: “a likeness of a person, especially of the face, as a painting, drawing or photograph.

We here at Dark Light Photo Studios define a portrait as a professionally taken photograph that captures a moment or event in your life. It can be during something like a wedding, a pregnancy or in preparation for graduating high school. Or maybe you just haven’t updated your family portraits in a long time and need new ones to hang on your wall. It’s even possible that you just want new portraits for yourself. There are tons of reasons to have them taken.

We find that in today’s fast paced lifestyle, people tend to get wrapped up in technology and busy schedules. We are forgetting to stop and appreciate the moments with our friends and family. When we reach a time in our life when we are able to slow down and want to look back on our past, there will be no portraits to look upon unless we make the effort today to create them.

So we ask you…What is a portrait to you?
