Senior portrait photographers are a big deal in the digital age.

We’ve been asked to take photographs of people and events for decades.

But it’s not just the subjects we’re asked to capture.

The images are the context, too, and sometimes they’re taken for the very first time.

And as they age, the images tend to become more and more recognizable.

So when we look back at the history of the most memorable photos, we might ask ourselves, what would have happened if we’d been given a chance to take these images today?
