Paul Alford, whose resumé packs 16 years of experience and membership in the Professional Photographers of America, captures cherished moments in the lives of families, children, newborns, and high-school seniors. After conversing with individuals and families, and communicating with newborns through a series of blinks, Paul customizes the approximately one-hour portrait session; sessions can take place within his professional photography studio or at an area location of the client's choice. For inspiration, clients can browse Paul's online portrait galleries and review some of his tips and policies, which include suggestions to wear solid-colored clothing, reminders to relax, and ideas for personalizing images with props such as class rings, stuffed animals, or life-size cardboard cutouts of the Mona Lisa.
Around two weeks after the session, Paul invites shutterbug subjects to his studio to preview pre-touched, finished digital portraits projected onto an 8-foot video screen. The preview takes about an hour, with Paul showing suggested selections and with clients ultimately deciding which portraiture most imbues their inner Victorian monarch.
