Photographic artist, Serena Parente Charlebois, is an award-winning photographer specializing in black and white and fine art portraiture.
Serena is Certified by the Professional Photographers of America, has earned her Master Photographer degree and most recently her Photographic Craftsman degree. Serena has received national recognition for her ability to capture emotional and natural portraits of children and their families. Her studio is found in the historic New England seacoast community of Little Compton, RI.
"I fell in love with the art of photography when I was just 9 years old. The rich memories captured and claimed forever on paper fascinated me."
"I try to compose and create images as if they were a song. I want my compositions to flow and engage and be a wonderful piece of art, that makes you always want to come back and experience again and again."
Serena's Studio is a custom designed, natural light studio. The soft quality of the northern light that Serena works with allows her to capture the natural expressions of childhood and the essence of her subjects' personalities without the harshness of flash photography. Serena's Studio is located in the perfect environment to spark a child's imagination and sense of adventure. The two-acre property is abundant with lush gardens, winding paths, and a country portrait barn, all nestled in an untouched oak forest.
Clients may choose from the indoor studio setting or any of these outdoor photographic options for their portrait sessions, or select one of the unique landscapes of the Little Compton beaches and wild life preserves, all just minutes from Serena's Studio.
