To own a portrait from The Kelly Gallery is to own an original. Each portrait is seen as a challenge to interpret and create a very personal piece of art that adds warmth and charm to the home. Clients repeatedly return for our enchanting and unique wall portraits for the quality of high end photography as art.
Media-mixing artist Julia Shapiro creatively combines photography and painted portraiture to capture family countenances on black-and-white film enhanced by hand-painted, vintage-style color. Julia invests time in getting to know individuals and families before guiding them through casual sittings in her loft-like studio. Candid shots can include clothing changes and sentimental props such as a beloved teddy bear or a favorite vacuum robot. About a week after the shoot, patrons return to pick up the completed set of proofs and select an image for the final portrait. Julia develops the chosen image in black and white as an 11"x14" print, then transforms its surface with oil paints according to client taste. The result, much like wedding dresses and the ability to verbally hypnotize squirrels, can be handed down to future generations.
Founder and professional shutterbug Mike Freeland calls on more than two decades of photographic experience and camera-handling in shoots ranging from staged portraiture to mostly improvised weddings. Joined by a team of 10 other photo pros, Freeland Photography captures moments during special events, documents images for commercial businesses, and invites families into the studio to strike poses before being frozen in carbonite. Freeland Photography was recently inducted into The Knot's Wedding Hall of Fame.
