Powdered Painting Portraits
We have a big announcement here at Cleary Creative Portraits. We are now offering a new style of portraits. They are called Powdered Painting Photographs. These photographs can be produced from a studio portrait or a location portrait. This is a PhotoShop technique that allows me to be creative with individual portraits. This will make a beautiful wall portrait.
Here is the last outdoor family portrait I have scheduled for this year. I did the photography for this family close to downtown Dayton along the Great Miami river. They brought their two energetic dogs who really loved the river bank. It’s a little late in the year and the leaves were gone but it’s still a beautiful setting. I had to use all my experience to get the dogs attention. Maybe someone will call for a family portrait in the snow this winter. Here at Cleary Creative Photography we always work with clients to come up exactly the photograph they desire. Dan has been creative family portraits in the Miami Valley area for over 28 years.
It’s not to late to have a family portrait done this holiday season. There are still appointment times available for your family photography. I’m also selling gift certificates that you can use now or later. $140 gift certificates sell for $100, $350 gift certificates sell for $260 and $500 gift certificates sell for $375. Call the studio at 937-298-6776 or email me at Dan@ClearyCreativePhoto.com. I’ll have the gift certificates available until the end of the year.
Professional photographers are being challenged to post black & white images for consecutive 5 days. Here’s my first images. This is a young family that came in for baby and family portraits. They had a 3 month old and a 2 year old. Any professional photographer can tell you how challenging photographing a 2 year old can be. So I posed the Mom, Dad and baby, I have a one foot tall box that gets used for all sorts of things. I asked the little boy who was running around the studio to jump up on the box and look at his brother. I made three exposures and this one came out perfect. The Mom & Dad liked it so much that the purchased a 16×20 framed print. What a blessing to have this image displayed in their house for a long time to come.
Dan Cleary of Cleary Creative Photography been very busy this summer photographing families at Smith Garden in Oakwood, Ohio. It’s Smith Garden’s 40th anniversary this year and the folks at Oakwood asked Dan to photograph families this summer and fall at Smith Garden. Dan have been using Smith Garden for many years photographing families in their great outdoor garden. We really appreciate how well maintained the garden is and the families I have photographed over the years have been some of my best work. There is one more date scheduled this year on October 11th in the morning for outdoor family portraits. If you want to have a family photographed give Dan Cleary of Cleary Creative Photography a call at 937-298-6776 to talk about your family portrait.
I received a phone call like many I have had. “Hi, I would like to find out about a family portrait”. I like to find out as much information as possible about the family before they come in for a portraits. Who am I photographing? What are everyone’s age? Are there little kids, grandparents? The woman who called said her mother had breast cancer and she wanted a family portrait while she still felt good enough to come in. I was amazed how good the grandmother looked and how much love this family had for each other. We should all be this lucky to have a loving, extended family. Two sisters, with their children and their parents. I delivered the portraits as quickly as possible because I knew the Grandmother wasn’t doing well. When my client picked up the portraits she told me her mother was at Hospice and I felt very sad. Later that day she called me crying because she showed the portraits to her mother and everyone at hospice cried they looked so good. How important is a family portrait? These portraits are priceless. These are the kind of clients I love and these are the kind of families I love to work with.
