“I had pictures taken by Steve on my birthday. He’s very good and he also allowed me to change my outfits. It was a wonderful time.”–Sharon Brown
“Steve made us feel very at home in his studio. He asked us questions trying to find out “who we are” so that he could tailor the session to our needs. I have been to a few family photo sessions in my life but as long as I can remember I have never felt like an “old family friend” was shooting for us. As long as Steve continues his operation he will have a lifetime customer with our families. Thank you, Steve” –Coder family
“I loved how professional Steve was.” –Puntillo family
“We LOVE our photos and had a very hard time picking just one.”–Mary Sabre, mom of high school senior
You can have the “ultimate portrait experience”!! Read on …
Master Photographer Steve Rouch has traveled across the United States for the last 35 years studying the lost art of “classical fine art portraiture” with internationally renowned artists.
With the understanding of this art form, Steve is able to analyze each human face to find the most flattering angles. Steve has learned to literally “paint with light” with up to 7 lights in his camera room with precise directional capabilities. These lights put a twinkle in the eye, paint each strand of hair, play with highlight and shadow and sculpt images into breathtaking beauty.
Virtually all of Steve’s clients share the human concern of “not being photogenic” or “not liking past pictures.” All humans share this feeling including Steve himself! He has been trained to help people look younger, slimmer and tanner than they ever dreamed. With the use of a sizable monitor, Steve works with each client to find the perfect outfit, background, soft flattering lighting, body language and expression to create their own personal “work of art.”
Part of the magic of this experience is that when Steve was little, he decided Peter Pan was right… It is NOT fun to grow up!!! So you will find him to be a playful and fun person to work with.
Steve loves to go outside as well … just behind his studio is a nature preserve!
Why trust a “once in a lifetime portrait” to a once in a while photographer?
