Family Portraits

Before leaving for her year of college, Dave’s daughter said:

“Dad, the one thing I want to take with me to college is a portrait of our family”

A quality Family portrait, taken by Dave Lewis Studio isn’t just any image on a piece of paper – it’s a meaningful connection, even an anchor in these stressful times.

In fact:

“A recent U.K. study revealed that family portraits are more powerful at raising someone’s mood than TV, Music or even CHOCOLATE!”

This deep heartfelt connection is something that can only be handled by an experienced professional photographer who truly understands and cares. A family portrait created by Dave lewis Studio becomes not just a Family portrait, but a lasting treasure that the GrandChildren will be arguing over for possession. A Family portrait from Dave lewis Studio continues your families legacy.

Senior Portraits

You only graduate from high school once, and it’s a moment to remember for the rest of your life. It can be said that senior portraits live forever, and decades from now, you’ll be treasuring your senior portraits, showing them to your kids or grandkids.

A bad senior portrait can make you cringe well into your 60’s, and seniors understandably get worked up about it. For some, this can be too much, leading to heavy breathing, light-headedness, and – in a few cases – fainting. But it’s okay!

Take a deep breath, grab your mom’s credit card, and call 309-647-5770 to reserve your appointment time before the symptoms return!

Child Portraits

The sparkle in the eyes of a child is one of the most wonderful things a parent can experience. While children grow bigger, older, and usually more argumentative, a portrait captures a special moment of a child’s life, letting you hold on to the magic forever.

But while children are a lot of fun, they’re VERY tricky to work with, and it takes someone with an understanding of them to make sure everything turns out just right. As a father of three and grandfather to two – soon to be four – I’ve got plenty of practical “field experience” in working with kids.

Whether it’s a “proper” portrait, or just capturing the spirit of your kids being themselves, call 309-647-5770 and make an appointment today!

Not only do I bring my experience directly to your wedding, but I also do something nobody else does – I bring my own lighting.

There are so many details to think about for your wedding! But you won’t have to worry about being forever stuck with badly-done photographs from a flustered “wannabe” who couldn’t keep up.

Restoration / Copy

There’s an art to restoring your old photos, and it’s not always something that can be done with computers. There are some things that can only be done with a steady hand, years of experience, and a healthy dose of practiced ingenuity.

While I use computers to help make perfect, restored copies of cherished family photos from years – even centuries – past, I also use painstaking techniques that modern practitioners have never taken the time to learn. There’s a lot of love and history wrapped up in old photos, and that’s what’s needed to truly make the past gleam again… you have to be able to feel and to really care.

Call me at 309-647-5770 and bring me your old photos – I’ll make sure they’re a part of your family and your life… forever.
