“1. a painting, drawing, or photograph of a person that usually only includes the person’s head and shoulders; 2.a detailed description of something or someone; 3. a way of printing a page so that the shorter sides are on the top and bottom and the longer sides are on the left and right.” or “Full Definition of PORTRAIT: 1picture; especially : a pictorial representation of a person usually showing the face; 2 a sculptured figure :bust; 3 a graphic portrayal in words“
What I consider a portrait:
“a portrait is a fitting likeness of an individual, place or thing which portrays the subject’s personality, lifestyle, and/or character through a photograph or a painting.”
Portraits can be taken of a home or piece of property, person, or a pet/animal. We commonly use “photograph” instead of “portrait” as the word “portrait” is more personal.
Portraits are used to measure changes in the growth of children, to capture lifestyles, and to capture a special occasion which one or more would like to remember for all time.
We like to celebrate and share moments like:
Baby’s first year;
A teen’s last year of school (senior year);
A daughter/son’s wedding;
Parent’s silver anniversary;
All of these are great things and wonderful moments to celebrate.We all wish to remember and share special times with loved ones. That is what portraits are for. . . . . . . What was your last celebration? When?
Family is always a good thing to celebrate as are friendships! So. . . what are you waiting for? Let’s take some Portraits!

Hmm…so after my post about Mother’s day and Queen Victoria and Eleanor of Aquitaine, I have decided it would be awesome to do a photo shoot tribute.
Eleanor of Aquitaine, and Queen consort to two Kings and Mother of two more Kings is described at the age of 30 (before she was mother of 2 Kings) as: a dark-eyed beauty, disconcertingly articulate, strong-minded and even jocular and not at all the modestly veiled damsel in the tower.’ (http://www.historynet.com/eleanor-of-aquitaine.htm)
this is my favorite work depicting Eleanor:
If you have any ideas or would like to participate…get in touch! 😀
As I said…this is an idea I am thinking of….ren-faire and mother’s day inspired…. hmmm….
