I will say this 1000x over, when another photographer trusts you to take their photos, it is truly an honor. I have known Dina for quite some time now. We met a few years back through a local photographer Facebook group (that I will be forever thankful for). This group has brought me friends, clients and loads of inspiration. I love how we truly embrace community over competition in such a saturated photographer market.
Dina is such an incredible example of community over competition. She is one of the most driven photographers I know, and her business shows that. She truly loves to help and watch other businesses grow, including mine. She has given me more inspiration, advice and motivation than I can even begin to explain. I am thankful that her career path crossed mine.
Dina has photographed families and weddings over the years, but I can tell you without a doubt her speciality is high school seniors. She excels in this photography niche and every senior she photographs is an indication she is truly talented at what she does. When Dina contacted me, she was looking for some headshots. We talked about things that she wanted her clientele to know about her and what she thought defined a bit of who she was. We discussed her brand colors and items we thought would fit her branding story we were going to tell.
When the day arrived, I think we were both overly excited to do this session. We drank coffee, made sure to capture all the details and even talked a little bit of shop. Her Behind the Brand session went so smoothly and I was ridiculously excited about all the images I had captured. To say I was on a high the rest of the day is an understatement. With that being said, I present to you Dina's Behind the Brand Session!
