I was very pleased to find that last month Jane McDonagh Photography was honored as one of the top 5 family photographers in Boston on the CBS site.
It is always a pleasure to be so recognized when there are so many photographers in the area, but what was particularly satisfying was the comment “her photography has a classic, tasteful eye” because this is what I like to think makes my work stand out. I believe the strength of my work has always been the timeless quality of a classic composition with perfect lighting which is then subtly and artfully polished with the sophisticated use of professional photo editing tools. The results are images of elegance whose apparent simplicity belie the work and experience required to create them. I know I am lucky to get the feedback of clients who discern this quality and appreciate great art and tell me this is why they chose me to take their family portraits, but it is gratifying that the work put into crafting these images is also more widely recognized in an online publication.
Meanwhile this record breaking winter goes on but it hasn’t stopped clients from braving the elements to visit my studio – it has been the busiest start to the year I’ve ever had and I will soon start blogging some of the recent lovely sessions. In the meantime I was browsing through some old images and this one caught my attention as the perfect antidote to the piles of snow surrounding us at the moment. The dreamlike quality of this image certainly makes me dream of flowers in Spring!
