Skin tones being a bit off in individual portraits is not a big deal for most untrained eyes because one does not have a basis for comparison. However, if you put a group of people together, the differences in skin tones become irksome very quickly because some people’s faces look nice and peachy while others may look […] Employee Portraits

I had the pleasure of taking two company/team photos this summer right in my “backyard” (aka, the Seagrams Loft area in Uptown Waterloo). Our community is blessed with some really cool buildings old and new and I get to take advantage of my own building for my backdrops! I love how the team was […]
