the Gwins ... also Casual & Relaxed

Back in 1975 when we got this party started by opening the studio, there were only 2 choices for family portraits, in the studio (otherwise know as formal and stiff) or outdoors (otherwise known as casual and relaxed). But immediately I began to change all those preconceived ideas (in fact, many clients are more uptight outdoors than in the studio). With a casual pose and clothing, a studio portrait may be more fun because there is no wind, no hot or cold, and no worrying about the dogs running away. Plus, there are more time slots available.
With the Gwins portrait, it was made more personal by adding a chair from their home. Even the dogs photographed great and said it was fun!
