Freeze the Moment, Reveal the Reality
Someone once said, “Taking an image, freezing a moment, reveals how rich reality is.” How true this statement is if you slow down long enough to think about it. Our lives are so packed with fleeting moments that we can never get back. From the milestones of our lives such as a wedding or the birth of a child to a family portrait or the day-to-day.
Photographs are memories and moments we treasure and look back on for a lifetime and beyond. They are a legacy and proof that our lives exist.
When is the last time you had your photograph taken? What will you and your family look back on one day?
Will it be a series of cell phone images? Or will there be true gems that your family will treasure and pass on to their loved ones?
Here at Sabrina L. Greene Photography, I offer you the opportunity to freeze the precious moments, milestones, events, and portraits of yourself and those you love.
Weddings ♥ Engagement ♥ Elopements
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life! It is fun, exciting, thrilling, and something most of us long for.
It doesn’t matter if you are planning a major celebration for 18 months in advance or planning an intimate elopement with your love. Marriage is a sacred ceremony and a moment between two people who want to spend their lives together.
Your wedding day is a high point of the story arc of the exhilarating adventures that await you.
And if you choose me as your wedding photographer I get just as excited as you to freeze the moments of your day so you can look back on them.
The richness of a love story, your story, is a true delight to take part in. I always consider it to be an honor to witness your union and see the sacred moment when you say “I Do!”
Portrait Photogaphy ♥ Family ♥ Children ♥ Individual
As Benjamin Franklin said, “Lost time is never found again,” but it can be remembered in a portrait. Portraits were originally just for the affluent and wealthy but that all changed with the invention of the camera.
Now we can literally carry a camera around in our pocket via our cell phones and tablets. But those images do not always turn out the best and can be difficult to enlarge to showcase. But they are wonderful for documenting our daily lives.
Portrait photography is all about capturing the essence of someone’s soul through their eyes. Growing up I used to draw eyes all of the time as doodles on a variety of things. They convey such emotion and allow us to communicate in a unique way.
I love being a portrait photographer! To really capture the spirit of someone I must work with them and gain their trust. This is the same for children to adults. Adults often have a harder time letting themselves be “seen” in an image.
Nevertheless, I strive to portray my subjects in their true light. Sometimes that means I have to capture them slightly unaware or take them through a “mental exercise” to get them to be who they are, but I don’t give up.
I also love working with children because they are unguarded about their emotions. We have all seen parents scolding their children to smile and what they get in return is the obvious fake smile. I don’t want that for my clients!
Instead, I tell children that for the next 30 minutes you don’t have to listen to mommy because we are going to have fun by ourselves! And we do! I encourage them to play and to interact with me.
Even when it comes time for the traditional family portrait I have ways of getting them to settle in and for everyone involved to relax. Regularly, the games I have everyone play with one another get them interacting naturally. And generally, those are the ones they love the most.
Having a regular portrait created is so important. We physically change every day and go through different stages. Each and every stage of our lives is important because it becomes a part of who we are.
Don’t put it off, contact me and let me document your story for you!
Conceptual Fine Art Work
When I am not shooting weddings, portraits, or painting I am out gathering more images to use as references. Often those images end up in sketches or artwork. However, there are times when I blend both my painting style with my photography and create true Fine Art Photography Projects or composites. Otherwise known as Conceptual Photography.
The boundaries between traditional art and photography become very blurred in these images but they are created with ideas and themes behind them. Now and then I create them just to create and let my imagination bloom. They are also extremely fun to create with children. I do take commissions on this type of work but it is on a case by case basis.
