First session: A full color sketch is done, which will provide the reference for specific color balance.
Second session: Photographs are taken, setting and pose are discussed, as well any desired inclusions and the background. Location.
Portraits generally refer to a client’s home, workplace or special environment. As I prefer to work where the client is most comfortable, I have streamlined my tools and materials in order to make the process flow smoothly when I visit.
For the young and the restless the whole process is streamlined and made memorably pleasant by Enrique's stories and informal and fun approach.
