Family Is Creating Memories Together

When families come to me for a photo session, I know they are not just coming for photos. They want to walk away with positive feelings and knowing that they built memories together in the half hour or hour that I spend with them. I have to work really quickly to help them feel comfortable with me and each other.

I had my own photo session recently for my engagement photos and even though I’ve professionally been photographing for almost 9 years, it was intimidating! You become very vulnerable when you are being photographed and it’s important that your photo clients feel comfortable and relaxed.

Photographers, I think what helps with this are 5 important keys:

  1. Confidence
  2. Connection
  3. Genuinely loving people
  4. Directing
  5. Common ground

The joy and genuine love that came from this family was evident and you could tell them deeply care about each other and I invite you to take a peek into their photo session together.

I’m Back! (Post-surgery)

Hi everyone, You may have noticed a lull here on my blog, as well as on my social media pages….but….

Beba is back!

2016 turned out to be a bumpy ride for me health-wise. I ended up visiting the ER multiple times for severe bouts of pain and nausea and other symptoms and the doctors discovered that I had chronic cholecystitis, which means I had a very inflamed gallbladder. Medicine and conservative methods of changing my eating habits didn’t help, so the doctors referred me to a surgeon.

It was so so very hard to do, but I had no choice but to take a break from my photography business in order to focus on taking care of my health and getting better. I had surgery to remove my gallbladder at the end of November and while I’m still recovering, I had my first photo session back last week and feel so wonderful being back in my favorite environment!

You other photographers might understand that being away from doing what you love the most makes you feel like a fish out of water. It feels so good to be back!

I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and Holiday and New Year and that 2017 brings many wonderful things for you and your families! Glad to be back–I missed you guys and can’t wait to share some of these newest photo sessions with you!

Happy New Year!

Love, Beba
