LISA KLARE PHOTOGRAPHY was founded 1995 after owner, Lisa Klare, photographed her two children for her holiday card and soon had neighbors asking for photographs of their own children. From there, the business grew to include families, head shots, nature, pets, events and most recently, fine art.
Lisa believes that relationship is the key to creating a beautiful portrait. " I believe photography is a collaborative effort between subject and photographer, with relationship being the key that makes the magic happen. There is a decisive moment in every memorable portrait when the soul reveals its true essence. Getting to that place, in a relaxed and confident manner, is the art and joy of my work."
All clients are prepped in advance on best wardrobe, makeup and hair choices and given step-by-step coaching during the shoot on posing. Together, photos are viewed and lighting and posing revised as needed until the client is in love with their shots.
"I have never met a face that I haven't found to be beautiful," said Lisa. "The key to getting a successful portrait is ENGAGING with the photographer. Forget the camera is there! And forget what your smile looks like. Beautiful portraits start with your eyes. The rest is up to me."
