Photographer Charlene Potts specializes in capturing some of life’s biggest milestones: new babies, engagements, weddings, high-school grads, and her specialty of pet portraits. Prior to each session, Charlene meets with subjects and furry family members in their homes to discuss personal style and various wall-art options in their space. Her portrait sessions generally last 90 minutes, with a follow-up appointment a few weeks later to review prints. Held 10 days after each session, the follow-up appointment includes a viewing of prints and selection of favorite images. She also provides an online gallery where family, friends, and online avatars who happen to be art critics can view the pictures. She shares her craft in other ways, too. She regularly leads photography classes in which she teaches students about composition, exposure, and camera operations.
