The Olewiler Siblings, Mark Brandes

When April asked me to create a portrait her siblings, I envisioned an updated approach to my classic portraiture.

It occurred to me that our family has countless fun and spontaneous images, but what about the other parts of their personalities?  I wanted to create a significant portrait – one that becomes more valuable through the years.  The Olewiler siblings are strong minded, competitive, and individually successful.   Part of that is because their common bond of those values were shaped when they were very young children.

For me, I can think of no better way to embody these elusive visual statements than with a classic approach.

Many of our past clients agree.  When we created their first portraits, it told the beautiful story of younger lives, as their individual personalities were still emerging.  These new portraits are sort of like bookends, that show where life has taken them.

What about you and your family? Who are you becoming?  Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a significant portrait of this stage in your family’s story?   Let’s explore what that might look like, and create something uniquely you.  Call me today at (805) 367-8100.
