Portraiture is a ancient art form that has been around for about 5,000 years - beginning as drawn, painted and sculpted records of a person or group’s appearance.  In today’s world, the documentation of a person or group is primarily accomplished with photography, in a studio or a particular environment. 

More than just a record of a moment, prevalent on social media, a quality portrait can show the virtue, beauty, wealth, taste, learning, and important qualities of the subject(s).  To accurately tell the intended story, the portrait shoot takes time, equipment and skill.  Nancy Tawes Photography is dedicated to fulfilling that outcome and encouraging the subject(s) of their unique value.
