Pictures can be anything. Photography encompasses such a diverse collection of images because any image taken with a camera is first, before any other iteration, a photograph. To me, photos speak a language all their own, sometimes capturing a stunning moment of artistic composition, other times a unique moment of personal expression, and - - - in the best circumstances, both. If a photographic image moves you, then, to me, it is successful. A good picture makes you feel and a good photographer begins every moment captured by feeling it. In modern image making, there is a place for raw images, images with special effects and images that have been artistically designed.

The Unexpected Portrait offers many different services. I can come to your home or to a location that you or I choose. I can come up with a vision for a holiday shoot, a birthday shoot or for your portfolio. I can shoot your place of business, your products or your home and I am available for fashion, make-up, head shot and hair shoots on a limited basis. I do offer three pre-arranged packages for photography sittings and they are detailed on the pricing page. You can also read more about my shooting philosophy and The Unexpected Portrait on the about me page.

I also create graphic designs, cards, calendars and business logos: with or without photos. Additionally, I can design a number of different kinds of albums. These services are all available for a range of fees depending on your needs. Please contact me at : gishmoon@me.com if you are interested in any of these services. You can view some of my logos, cards, album and calendar pages and graphic designs in the portfolio section of this site and I have a complete portfolio of work that includes all of these items which you may view in person by making an appointment to meet with me.
