Meet Pastor and Mrs Fields!

We created this beautiful stunning portrait of Pastor and Mrs. Fields just a couple months ago.  We had to wait until the official unveiling at their church until we could reveal it to you.

What a lovely couple!  And there portrait session was nothing short of amazing!  Their home walls will never be the same! and will most certainly come alive after the installation of these portraits.

Another fine Work-of-Art from Anthony Conoway Portrait Design.

My how I love being a portrait artist!

7th Annual First Ladies Tea Luncheon

• November 9th, 2018 •

What a grand time we’ve had over the last couple of months creating portraits of 20 of the most elegant and beautiful First Ladies in the DMV.  We are elated to have been asked by Radio One to create this elegant, yet classic side of the First Lady for the 7th Annual First Ladies Tea Portrait Gallery.  It was a joy to be able to do what we love doing so much.  Every one of the ladies were unique in there own way.

Thanks to Karen Jackson (General Manager) and the folks at Radio One for your confidence in us and for this opportunity.

If you’re a First Lady or not, regardless of your age or status, you owe it to yourself to capture the essence of your beauty.  What better way than to allow us the opportunity to create a beautiful Work-of-Art for your home wall.  You’ll be glad you did!  Call us TODAY to receive a 15% Christmas Bonus incentive on all wall portrait orders (available thru January 20th).

Welcome to the Portrait Blog!

• February 21st, 2015 •

Welcome to our brand new portrait blog. We’re excited to show you some of our latest and greatest portrait creations, as well as keep you connected with what’s going on at Anthony Conoway Portrait Design.

2015 is starting off to be a really great year, and we’re only in February. You’ll want to make sure that you keep up with our blog and Facebook page.

Year after year we have consistently created classic, elegant, traditional fine portraiture – pleasing our clients and giving them the very best we have to offer. No, classic is not old school; we just decided years ago that we would not go down the road of the faddish trends. It’s classic portrait photography that will stand the test of time and never go out of style. Though sometimes our vision may lead us in a classic, contemporary way, it’s still classic and would be great wall décor in your home or office. We call our style “Timeless Elegance”.

This year allow us to create a beautiful wall portrait for you and your family; whether children, high senior, executive or our beautiful elegant woman series. We’d love to be your portrait artist. We’d love to get to know you and you know us.

I’d like to start off by posting one of our favorite Valentine portraits from this month. Meet Donna Kaufman, what a beautiful heart and spirited woman. Donna is a lobbyist on Capitol Hill, and a breast cancer survivor, on numerous fronts. She is a seven year survivor who now focuses her life on health and fitness, and of course lobbying and fighting as a cancer advocate. Donna has faced cancer head on and is living life victoriously.

Don’t forget to share our blog with your family and friends and we’ll look forward to meeting you soon!

2015 Seniors! There’s still Time!

• February 21st, 2015 •

Introducing Milan! We just completed this great senior portrait session of her. What a beautiful, classy young lady. Didn’t take much for her to warm right up in front of our camera. She was great!

As with all our style of portraiture, we always aim for classic, clean posing that will not go out of style down the road. Classic doesn’t mean stuffy and stiff. We many times spin our classic style off with a little contemporary flair. The end result—great classic seniors, like you see here.

Though we’ll soon be booking our 2016 seniors, it’s not too late to get your child in. Perhaps you just waited to have your portraits done or you didn’t like your school pictures. Whatever the case, let us ‘do it right!’ Call us today! You’re only a high school senior once. Don’t let your school year end without having your senior portraits created by Anthony Conoway Portrait Design – “Classis Seniors”

Taking Time for Portraiture

“Taking Time for Yourself and Family through Photographic Portraiture”

Written by Anthony Conoway


The Big Question: Are you taking time for yourself and family by having quality, fine-portraiture created?

Hello, I am Anthony Conoway, owner of Anthony Conoway Portrait Design. My wife, Barbara, and I have been creating beautiful, fine portraiture in the Washington DC metro area for 20+ years. We specialize in Classic, Elegant, Traditional-fine portraiture. We call our style “Timeless Elegance!”

Let me ask you an important question. When was the last time you had a professionally designed timeless wall portrait created of yourself or your family? Not a head or publicity shot. That’s different. Even in these economic times, sometimes the only thing that can bring us that lifetime of joy is a connection with ourselves or our families and the photographic memories we have and share.

A lot of people we talk with think ‘well, I won’t look good in a portrait’ or ‘I don’t like my face’, or ‘the last time I had a “picture” done I looked fat, etc. Well, you’re in good company. At Anthony Conoway Portrait Design, we don’t specialize in “pictures” as a lot of people tend to call them. We specialize in creating fine portraiture, and we care about how you look. We take your natural character, and create a one of a kind piece of wall décor that is naturally you, not a softened up glamour shot. We know what makes you present your best, and that starts with a design consultation to discuss proper clothing choices. Doing your design session, we will make sure your clothing reflects who you are.

Good timeless portraits aren’t always huge smiles, but subtle emotion and expression. You want hear us asking you to say cheese!

Why Wall Portraiture—a beautiful wall portrait of yourself or family in your home is a statement. A statement about your strength as a family or individual; and can bring the greatest joy every time you walk pass it on your wall. Just think of the conversations with your friends as they gather around your beautiful portrait in your home. Wow, what a statement.

Taking The Time!—as working professionals, you spend a huge amount of time with others making sure they are happy and satisfied, and that’s a wonderful thing. However, we often forget to spend time with ourselves, relaxing, and creating lasting memories for ourselves and our families. We’d love to help you get started, and introduce you to our business and fine style of classic portraiture. We want you to get to know us, and we want to get to know you.

How Are We Different? At Anthony Conoway Portrait Design, we’re a small business with a large vision. Our vision is to provide superb individualized client service and a high-quality product.

On a personal level, we are a friendly husband and wife team who cares about you and work together to create a one of a kind work-of-art. Our warm, residential studio gallery makes you feel relaxed and not hurried. Many of our clients come back year after year, some several times a year!

To accommodate our clientele, many of our sessions are evenings or Saturdays. This is another way we accommodate you, the working family and professional.

Give us a call and reserve your session today! If we can’t answer your call right away, we’re probably creating another beautiful memorable heirloom. Leave us a message and a convenient number and we’ll call you back as soon as we have the opportunity.

We look forward to photographing you!

Photographically yours,

Anthony & Barbara

Grand Royalty

• February 21st, 2015 •

We also finish up this month with a beautiful portrait of a senior couple. These are the parents of a family we photographed just before Christmas. What great royalty they present. Everything just fell in place to create this classic portrait. We consistently are commissioned to create beautiful wall portraits of what we call ‘Golden Aged Seniors.’ Oh, how beautiful they look on canvas when framed and displayed on a home walls. It is nothing short of spectacular!

Classic Elegant Woman

• February 21st, 2015 •

simply Elegant…simply Classic…simply Beautiful! Three words that describe our new, classic elegant woman portrait series. We at Anthony Conoway Portrait Design believe you deserve all three!

The “Classic Elegant Woman” session is designed to capture the beauty and elegance of the professional or everyday woman. We create this session either formal elegant or formal contemporary elegant. Whether 30 or 70 years young, you deserve to have that beautiful side of you captured.

For the formal portrait, beautiful flowing gowns make these become masterpiece wall décor, and are sooo exquisite. For the formal contemporary, you can actually be photographed in the same gown, just in a more contemporary fashion or setup. You may also choose a beautiful, elegant dress or pantsuit; regardless, it’s your day—you are queen and we want you to feel and be portrayed in such a way.

We create a series of images that would be great for that special place on your wall. In addition it would make a great gift for hubby, mom or grandparents.

You will cherish this creation forever!

The Lawrence Twins!

• February 21st, 2015 •

A blast from the past! Twins! Yes, twins. Every now and then we like to showcase some of our favorite portraits from the past. Ellie and Abby who we created portraits of a few years ago were such a beautiful pair. And even at young ages they did wonderful in front of the camera. We love capturing the innocence of children. These portraits make for great wall portraits and are a great conversational piece in your home.
