About Us


We are a husband and wife team that have been working together for more years than we care to mention. Chesterfield Photographer,Ron Ferland is the photographer and his wife, Maryann Ferland, is the girl Friday; creative spirit, studio manager and  consultant.

Our combined talents help us to create a fun experience for you in creating  one-of-a-kind portraits that we GUARANTEE  you will LOVE.

Why the name Created Portraits?

Because it defines what we do.

A portrait is so much more than pointing a camera at someone and clicking a button. We believe in bringing out the best in everyone we photograph. That can be through the creative use of lighting, posing (directing someone into a position that flatters), props, and just plain evoking an emotion that 'shows' the subject's personality. 

Creating stunning and compelling images for our clients is our primary goal.

We love creating portraits  that we think of as your own personal art and are also memories to be cherished. We're not talking about snapshots that anyone can take and then they get filed away somewhere never to be seen again. We are talking about conversation pieces and personal art. Something that is meaningful to you and you are proud to display.
