Portrait Photography

Posted By Rebecca-NY | Dec 11, 2012 | 1 Comment | Category: Uncategorized

The holidays are in full swing and everyone is scrambling to find the perfect gift for their sister, brother, aunt, cousin, mom — you name it.  There are gift guides galore and just about everyone is offering holiday deals to pressure you into buying that new gadget that your dad will never use.   Well, this year maybe it makes sense to spend your money wisely and give a gift that keeps on giving.  A gift that is meaningful and captures a moment in time.  A gift that will preserve a wonderful memory for someone you love.


Ben Larrabee is the perfect gift to give this holiday season.  He is a nationally recognized portrait photographer who specializes in photographing people and families.  His images are found not only in some of the finest homes from Santa Barbara to Chicago to New York but also in the permanent collections of museums including the MoMA and the Museaum of Fine Arts in Boston.


His work is unlike other portrait photographers because he has a way of seeing people and showing their inner spirit.  He calls his work “Moments of Grace”

A stunning photo of horses printed on kozo paper and then hand shaped and contoured – this is incredible in person!

Ben also worked on a series called ‘Faces of Light’ with women from Greenwich and Darien, CT who are all breast cancer survivors.  The images and their stories are incredible.  The entire series can be seen on his website.  You can also read the numerous and wonderful testimonials from clients and learn more about Ben and where he got started.  The photos above are a few examples of the wonderful portraits he has taken over the years!

Often times you’ll look around your room and wonder what’s missing.  The furniture is there, the window treatments are up, the rug is down and it’s feeling cozy but not quite complete.  Chances are you’re missing the one element that brings it all together.  ART!  I’ve been eyeing this one photograph in a small coffee shop on Bleeker Street and I’m just waiting for the perfect client to sell it to.  It’s by photographer Frank Louis and can be found in his Italy collection.

I also have a client who recently purchased a few David Burdeny prints from Lumas gallery in NYC which you can also buy online.  Take a look at his collection to see which colors work best with your decor.

I found a few addtional artists and photographs i also like from Lumas Gallery for those of you who want a modern edge!

I love this last series for a beach house
