“The Unexpected Portrait is my take – – on people, families, pets, special occasions, life, and everything in between. I strive for my work to be a fulfilling collection of these sorts of memorable images, capturing as many exciting, delightful, introspective, silly and/or unique moments as can be seen with my eyes, though the lens, in as many ways as I can see them. Some images are raw and unaltered. Others, once captured, inspire me to play with effects, overlays and many times even color and texture. Hopefully, in all the images the thread you’ll find is a mood reflected.  Delve in, come back often and let me know what you think. There’s always work in progress, a story to tell. If, after viewing you think you might like to purchase a portfolio image or have images photographed of yourself or of a place, your work, a loved one, a business, a special occasion, you name it, find me at my website, www.theunexpectedportrait.com.” – Gina/gishmoon, The Unexpected Portrait–candidly capturing life.
