ABOUT BETH

LET’S BE REAL…

My life is a hodge-podge of experiences that has brought me to where I am today.  I admit, I’m a laid-back type of girl who strives to be a perfectionist. I have worked in sales and marketing, was a high school and middle school science teacher and have now allowed my creative outlet to be nurtured with my eye for photography.  I strongly believe every facet of my life experiences has brought me to where I am today.  I juggled teaching and a part-time photo biz for two years before deciding to take a sabbatical from the classroom to focus on my full-time photography business.  I have truly found my niche in High School Senior photography as it brings me back to my place in the classroom as I connect with each one of my seniors behind the camera.

LET’S GET PERSONAL…

I am married to an amazing man and have a beautiful daughter named Hope.  Although I always had a camera in hand prior to my daughter, it was she who inspired my creative side behind the camera. From the newborn fingers and toes to the sparkle in her eye when she sees her Daddy, she made me realize how special these moments are and how important it is to capture them.

WHAT I DO…

I received my first “real” film (wow!) camera in the year 2000 and took classes to further my knowledge behind the camera.  I was always the one to have a camera in my hand and was probably that annoying friend that always said, “smile!”   I have attended the Senior & Youth National Conference (SYNC) and am a member of the PPA (Professional Photographer’s Association) to further my expertise as a photographer.  This industry is more to just taking pictures – and just like any profession – you can never stop learning.

WHAT’S IN MY BAG…

I’m not your typical photographer that carries around a ton of equipment. I show up with my camera and let life happen around us!  I am a devoted Canon user and mostly shoot with my 85mm prime.  That means I don’t zoom in and out – I move around to capture those shots!  I always carry a back-up (I’ve been known to drop my camera or forget my battery) and am not a big “prop” photographer.  I like to keep it simple!
