Portraiture is better when they portray (say about)  a person the way they look, dress and also show the true expression and personality they have at that certain time of their life.

Photography to me is not just point and shoot.  Besides selecting the right background, using the best flattering light possible, I study people in so many ways before I start a photography session.  I pose everyone very carefully, fast but still paying attention to detail.

Through my 30 plus years of photographing people, my continued education has never stopped.  This is one of the major benefits for my clients because now I have the ability to pose my clients in an array of poses.
Whether it is soft and sensitive (female poses), assertive, executives in a power pose or very masculine men poses, every image I create will speak a message to the viewer eyes.
Let this message be “Unique!”


Family PortraitsUniqueGroups_0018

Your family is changing so fast, isn’t it? Your children (and yes, they will be your “children” even when they’re married and have kids of their own) are growing up, and becoming more like adults every day. Don’t you wish you could just “freeze time” and hold these special family moments forever?

We Can Stop The Clock.
Photographic Memories Are The Most Valuable Thing We Own.

Can you relate to this at all? I wake up every morning and wonder where the time is going. Do you ever do that? Have you noticed that, the older you and your children get, the faster time seems to fly? I’m very lucky – I get to see my grown-up son Angel and my growing-up daughter Yesenia and Carlos on a regular basis. They all live with my wife and I here in Tucson.

But, not a day goes by that I don’t long for the days when I used to play catch with Angel in the backyard, or when I bounced Yesenia on my lap or play with Carlos and his little cars.
Those times will always be precious to me, and I thank God that I have more than just the memories to help me relive them. –  I have portraits of them!

Children’s Portraits

There’s Nothing Like Being A Parent. You’ll Do Anything For Your Child.  And When YourChild Smiles, It’s The Most Wonderful Sight In The World…

Imagine this:
I have this great professional photograph I took of my son, Angel. I call it the “the painter”  photograph because Angel had the cutest little outfit and a cap and he’s trying to dip brushes in the paint to help me.  There’s so much heart – so much emotion in this single image.  That one photograph means so much to me, I can’t even describe how I would feel if I were to lose it.

I took this photograph of him when he was only 9 months old, and I can still remember to this day exactly what that day was like.

It was so perfect.  And that entire day – that entire moment in my son’s and my life – is captured in his smile.  It’s the most real, most tender, most innocent smile, and it’s completely HIM.  More than any other photograph Angel has had taken as he grew up, the “Painter” photograph captured that childish spirit that will always make me smile.

Angel is now 25 years old.UniqueGroups_0021

What would a photograph like that of your child mean to you in
20 or 25 years?
There’s still time, but every day,  your child’s smile changes a little.

Make the call now. It will be a call you will be glad you made for the rest of your life. I look forward to hearing from you.

    “Jeese Montanez isn’t just a photographer as evidence to the incredible pictures he took of me in my art studio. He creates more than just an image. Like a Make-Up Artist does with a plain face, he molds with lights and add shape and dimension of the individual to illuminate the heart and soul of his subjects. Whether they be an inanimate object like a bowl of fruit or the magic emtional reflection between a newlywed couple as they take their vows before their love ones and God. He is beyond talented. He is a master of his craft!”

    Everyone loves our family portraits.
    We didn’t think that sending out Christmas cards would be a good idea but it was!
    All our family and friends still compliment us on how nice we all look and how we have a great expression on our face.
    The large wall portrait has become a conversation piece and we love it.

    Thanks to you and your wife, we feel like celebrities!
