Everyone wants to look his or her best.

The goal of portrait photography is to relay the expression, personality, and mood of the subject. Typically the focus of the photograph is usually the person’s face, although the entire body and the background may be included.

We can work with you in our studio, in your setting or outside in a natural setting to get the best photo that fits your requirements. How do you know what approach is best for you?

  1. Studio lighting

Studio Lighting provides the greatest control, and typically two to three-point lighting is used. Three-point lighting typically includes a key-light, a fill-in light, and accent light(s).

When portraits are captured in a studio, we have full control over the lighting and composition and the intensity of the light.  A variety of lighting can be set to capture soft or more dramatic looks.

  1. Location portraits

Most of the benefits of studio shots are reproduced in a location shoot. We can transport our equipment to your location. Many feel that a location shoot captures the best of both worlds; controlled lighting and the ambiance of your restaurant, office, home, or other location.

  1. Outdoor shoots

Outdoor shoots do not offer the control of light as the other two styles of portrait shoots but never fear; we can deliver great shots under these conditions.

When only the finest portrait photos are required, Atlanta turns to Sara Hanna Photography. We have extensive experience shooting artists, celebrities, executives, athletes and anyone looking for the best Atlanta portrait photography.
