Portraits and Special Occasions

“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”Paul Caponigro

Nakia and Kaylee

Nakia was in the late stages of pregnancy when I had the privilege of taking photos of her and her young daughter Kaylee. This is their story in pictures.

Portraits, Weddings and Special Occasions

In this day and age, where everyone has a digital camera or smartphone capable of taking lots of photos, the question is often asked as to why anyone would engage a professional photographer to do their portraits, weddings or for other special occasions.

There are a number of reasons really, but in essence, it’s to get great quality photographs that tell a story and evoke joy, happiness and feelings in images that will stand the test of time.

The founder and operator of Mondo Photography, Des Lewis, takes great satisfaction in producing images that portray a story, whether if be the wonder in a young child, a couple’s love, the wisdom of an elder, the joy of a wedding and, sometimes, loss.

Des knows exactly how to pose you and your family, and understands composition and lighting to achieve stunning individual portraits and photographs of couples, families and children.

This knowledge is also applied in photographing special occasions, where Des will capture the mood and atmosphere of the event. 

Legacy Photography

“True wealth is not measured in money or statues or power. It is measured in the legacy we leave behind for those we love and those we inspire.” Cesar Chavez.

Legacy photography creates a lasting memory of a loved one. This applies for all age groups, from children through to senior citizens.

The genre has become increasingly popular today given the disposable nature of digital photography. Many families are appreciating legacy photographs for  retaining special memories of loved ones for posterity.

This includes photographs of seniors, which is becoming more relevant today given many families are now spread across different locations and young ones have less contact with family elders. 

In undertaking legacy photography, Des seeks to create images that bring out character and personality, and are a fitting tribute of the individual for future generations.
