This was a photo shoot for my grandmother's birthday with around 25 adults and children. Bianca was wonderful sweet, and definitely patient. Our family hasn't been together like this in a long time and I am so thankful to her for being able to capture these beautiful moments for us! We will treasure these photos forever!Nov 10, 2015Verified

Bianca did a photo shoot for us that involved photos of 3 children, ages 2, 3, and 4, in an outdoor park setting. The photos included both posed shots and candid shots. We received the online photo set 8 days later. The photos were so beautiful, so creative and so adept at capturing the spirit of innocence and joy of the 2 brothers and 1 cousin, that my wife literally wept as she viewed the photos of her grandchildren. Bianca did a technically excellent job of staging and focusing the shots and editing the photo set (Im sure there were many shots where the kids were wiggling too much to make the shot a keeper). Beyond technical excellence, however, I have never seen a photographer who so very clearly loves her work. Bianca smiled and laughed throughout the photo shoot, which, in turn, put the kids at ease and made the adults recognize that we had landed the perfect professional for our job. As if that werent enough, Bianca is willing to do whatever it takes to capture the best shot. Her subjects, small children, are low to the ground and time after time Bianca didnt hesitate to drop onto her belly on the sidewalk or on the lawn to get the best angle on the shot. Overall, we were immensely satisfied with the photo shoot itself and absolutely delighted with the photo set she delivered.Jul 14, 2015Verified

- How did you get started doing this type of work?I always had a camera, even when I was a child. It wasn't until I started modeling in my early twenties that I realized I wanted to be behind the camera, rather than in front. So, I took photography classes in college, dabbled with different techniques, took any opportunity I could, and here I am! I'm loving every minute of it.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?I recently told a friend "you get what you pay for" that hired a photographer to shoot her wedding for next to nothing. Unfortunately, of approximately 300 images, only two or three were useful. Cheap photography is expensive, as you may not be satisfied with what you get. Research the quality of the work you are seeking, not just the price point.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?There is a lot more involved than just having photo gear and shooting an event. There's so many factors that go into taking quality photographs, from correct camera settings, to lighting, from being able to crawl around to get the shot, to the hours of post-edit work making every image look its absolute best. I love the entire time-consuming, thought provoking process!
