For this week's Talent Tuesday, I come back to a local friend of mine here in Colorado Springs, and bring you Hope Phipps of Hope Ann Photography. Hope is a very talented portrait photographer here in Colorado Springs, and before moving here, worked extensively in the Albuquerque area (still does some work there). She also does some work back in her (and my) homeland of Minneapolis, MN.
She does basically every form of portrait photography you might want - solo portraits, kid/baby portraits, whole family shots, boudoir, corporate head shots, etc. - and she excels at all of it. What's so compelling about Hope's work, and what makes her so sought after, is that she is so ably to apply her unique artistic vision, so that there's no mistaking that it's a Hope Phipps photo, yet she still makes it all about the subject(s), pulling out their unique personalities. Hope has a very warm, inviting personality that really puts people at ease, and you can see that in the resulting photos. You can't fake comfort and trust, which is why her subjects always look so genuine in her work.
I invite you to go visit her website and check out her portfolio. If you're in the Colorado Springs area and looking for a great portrait photographer to capture you or your family, you should definitely consider Hope. You wouldn't be disappointed, I guarantee you.
