The architecture of a face is in the bone structure, yes, but more in the character of the person. You can tell by how they carry themselves that they are strong or soft, complex or simple. All of that means that there is a sense of architecture in a good portrait.
Cait married Matt on a blustery September afternoon in downtown Portland… the wedding was at the elegant University Club… an institution in the very best sense of the word. When it was time to have them out for portraits, we went out into the streets looking for good light and interesting spaces. They both brought this wonderful sense of play to the table and they trusted me to make it work.
Everyone has an interesting face… the key to it is to be alive in your own skin… stop worrying about the magazines and the media. The architecture of your face won’t be like anyone else and that is something to be celebrated.
Let’s talk about interesting pictures, ok?
