Wendell Powell Studio has been around a long time. Most Richmonders know the name. I am not even from Richmond (I am from Norfolk) and I know the name well. Not only was my husband’s whole family (all from Richmond) photographed by Wendell Powell but my Mom’s bridal portrait, my baby portrait, my bridal portrait and my wedding photography was all done by Wendell Powell Studio as well. We came to Richmond from Norfolk because that is how good the Wendell Powell name is! Here are a few things you might not know about the studio!
One of their specialties is classic and contemporary children’s photography. Wendell Powell not only creates beautiful photographs from your studio or environmental portrait session but they also create silhouettes and fine art oil portraits. There is great satisfaction and comfort knowing that these products are created by your photographer. Fran Willis has over 12 years experience in fine art portraiture. Her approach when painting is to accentuate through oils the natural beauty of the image. This approach involves a skilled photographers ability to capture natural light on their subject matter either in their professional studio or on location.
Black and white silhouette art heirlooms are a sweet surprise to your portrait session. Again, created in the studio and printed in various sizes to meet your specifications. These make for great gifts! They are simple yet sweet and captured at a moment in time – they are a perfect addition to your family tradition.
