Table of Contents
Beside the conventional technical criteria (composition, exposition, sharpness, resolution, etc.), we believe that a good image is an image that communicate a message and that you don’t forget. A good image is more than an illustration, it must generate enthusiasm from the viewer. That could be obtained by capturing the right moment (emotion, expression), and by lightning, staging a portrait or a product photograph.
Real beauty is timeless and passes true centuries. That’s why, where it’s during the photo session, or during the retouching process, we choose not to follow the trendy mood, but skip on what some would name classical, natural, minimalism. We want our image to be vibrant, dynamic, and kindle passion. For that purpose, we pay extreme attention to details, when we took the pictures (hands, attitude, gaze, shadows, colors, contrast), and when we enhance it (natural colors, texture, noise, deformation).
As a local photographer, we value our customers and make everything simple and efficient for them.
We like people with high expectation, and we understand than most people are not professional photographers. We only make clear promises we can take, and found a way to be convenient with your requirements specifications (when working with a professional).

Other kinds of photography I am not specialized in
When you are a Senior College in France, you don’t do this kind image. Though I have never had the opportunity to capture such pictures. Watching the work of other photographers in Rochester, MN, I have discovered that there is a bunch of style used, and it seems pretty fun!
I have taken my soon, my brother’s daughter, and some friends’ daughter pictures. Indeed, it’s a one-lifetime event you want to remember.
I keep it simple, with a refined and minimalist design to focus on the baby. Unlike the huge newborn photography industry, I don’t use props and I don’t over retouch the pictures. So if you prefer pictures of your child with numerous baskets, wrap in several colors blankets, materials, hats, maybe you should contact a specialized photographer. There are some in the Cities and in Byron.
Ten years ago I have shot a Aubade style calendar for Stewart who wanted to offer her fiancé a surprise gift. I keep a good memory of this experience, composing with the light and the human curves to create artistic and sexy pics.
Some photographer is specialized in the boudoir, offering a studio with a bed, furniture, background, makeup and even lingerie!
Well, I am not. I would keep it simple, using clear wall as, or a studio backdrop as the background of your images.

We are the probably, the one only photography studio in town, with two degrees in photography. 3 years in university in Paris, and a 5-year degree in a famous Art School in Paris (École Normale Supérieur des Arts décoratifs).
