Hello, my name is Paul Cryan.  I have been in the photography business for over 40 years. I am now photographing second and third generations of the same family. It is very rewarding to have such a loyal customer base and to hear such wonderful comments about my work.

I have become very well known for my black and white children photography. Unlike many school photographers, my approach is to take the time to put the children at ease and to try to capture natural expressions and gestures using puppets and jokes.

In my portrait studio, I offer quality color or black and white prints. I have more time to spend getting a variety of poses and expressions as well as additional equipment to obtain different types of lighting. I use minimal muted backgrounds in order to emphasize the importance of the subject. I am also able to accommodate groups of children and families. I am adept at putting people at ease during their photo sessions with comedic banter and an occasional rubber chicken. I particularly enjoy working with children and have years of experience in getting even the most obstinate two year old to crack a smile.

A typical appointment in my studio is scheduled for one hour. Photos may be taken in color or black and white and printed proofs will be sent from which you can make your selection for enlargements. Each photograph ordered is artistically cropped and retouched with close attention to every aspect of color tone, shading and quality.

In addition to studio portraits and school photos, I also offer executive photo packages for the business professional. Please call my studio 860-676-1350 for further information and to schedule an appointment.

Thank you for your interest in my work.
