Before picking up a camera, Judi Brown honed her artistic skills at the handle of a paintbrush, garnering accolades for her paintings and cementing a polished aesthetic style. Today, she summons that same creative aptitude while capturing the togetherness of families, the spirit of children, and the accomplishment of high-school seniors within the cozy confines of her studio or on the idyllic country-estate grounds surrounding it. With soft lighting and a detailed approach, Judi draws out the inherent splendor of her subjects and ensures that both color and black-and-white portraits are fit to frame or wallpaper a bedroom. She also totes her arsenal of gear to events and weddings, meticulously documenting everything from the bride's preparation to the flower girl's curtsy.
