Thank you for taking the time to visit our web site and learn about our studio.
We are Kurt and Lisa English, and we are the heart and soul of Kurt English Distinctive Photography. This is not only our business, it our life and our passion.
Our philosophy is simple, we believe in portraits that last. That means honest, elegant portraits without overly trendy frills and filtering. It has taken us over 30 years to refine our style of lighting and composition, which we believe will stand the test of time. Our values include the careful nurturing and crafting of a family history to be forever cherished.
Quality of light, natural posing and honest expressions are the core ingredients for a beautiful portrait. We cultivate our relationships to generate the honest, natural expressions and capture the individual personality of each member of your family. This philosophy extends from our maternity sessions through our multi-generational portraiture and every session in between.
We begin each journey with our initial conversation and develop a partnership with our families in this special process. Our hearts are easily touched by the tender smile of a newborn or a mothers tear filled glance when she sees her precious child during the presentation session. We crave gesture and connection, like a child’s head resting on her daddy’s shoulder or the playful banter between siblings.
We have enjoyed many compliments regarding our unique interactions with children and our ability to capture groups of children in our portrait sessions. Beyond the professional certifications and accolades that we have received, our greatest reward is the continuing relationships as our clients become our friends.
We look forward to meeting and developing a new relationship with you and your family…
