Even after nearly two decades as a professional photographer, I am still awed by the power of a picture to introduce you to a someone’s personality and experiences. Portrait Photography in Massachusetts brings you into contact with a wide cross-section of people. You develop an appreciation of each person as an individual, with their own style, outlook and approach to life. Your aim as a portrait photographer becomes finding a way to ensure that their individuality is not lost in the portraits you create for them. In fact, having your portraits somehow enhance the distinctiveness of each individual is what you are ultimately after. Each photographer will have his own approach to how to achieve this. What you can be sure of, however, is that the best practitioners of Portrait Photography in Massachusetts do it very well, as shown by this portrait of Lady Elizabeth Anson at Fairmont Hotel. Within the portrait, there is a regal air to her that is immediately obvious and you sense her royal connections even without being introduced to her. Lady Anson is actually the daughter of Princess Anne of Denmark, who is the first cousin of Queen Elizabeth II of England. Her brother is royal photographer and pioneer of digital photography, Patrick Anson, 5th Earl of Lichfield. Her husband, Baronet Geoffrey Shakerley, is a society photographer, who has also photographed the royal family. Aside from Lady Anson’s regal air, the portrait also captures her flare for organization and her glowing sense of self-confidence. These are real traits from Lady Anson’s life. She started her (very successful) company, Party Planners, nearly 60 years ago and Queen Elizbeth II is one of her regular clients. She often organizes events for various other important people in society. Lady Anson often cites her strong work ethic as the reason behind the longevity and success of Party Planners.
