DASH PHOTOGRAPHY | EYE CANDY

Amanda of Dash Photography is an Atlanta based photographer who specializes in Seniors and Weddings.  She is truly able to capture the spirit of those she photographs!  Not only is she an awesome photographer, but an awesome person.  Here is a bit about why she named her business Dash Photography…

“Although my goal is to give you beautiful images that you are proud to display, my purpose is much more than that. I believe we are appointed a time and place here on earth. We are given a start date and an end date, which is displayed on our earthly grave. 1986-2009. The Dash represents the in-between…our given time. What events, people, and moments will be represented by your Dash? As a photographer, I aim to capture your dash–the trials, triumphs, milestone moments, and everyday occurrences that will be represented by your Dash. I want to build relationships with my clients so that their personality, character, and heart is imprinted in my mind as well as in my camera.

I believe we’re created for a purpose, and my purpose is to create visual memories of your dash.  I also created my business for a purpose, and am involved in an incredible community of wedding vendors who are helping fund the fight against sex trafficking called Love Gives Way.  For more info, click HERE.”

Enjoy the beautiful photography of Amanda of Dash Photography.

bio

I’m Yvette. I’m just a home-town girl with a camera, and I absolutely love being a Tucson photographer. I like to think of myself as a memory keeper. I love how photography allows us to turn our memories into souvenirs. I strive to take pictures that are real and genuine, beautiful and deep. I specialize in families, newborns, and weddings.

A little about me – I’m in love with my God, my husband, my five kiddos, my uber big extended family, my 50 mm lens, natural light, Dostoevsky, Back to the Future, running, The Cat in the Hat, a good cup of coffee and deep conversation, and nearly any dessert.

(And if you’re wondering, the “BG” in “BG Photography” is for my baby girl who helped me fall in love with my camera. Thanks sweet girl.)

 

Image Stats:

This photo shoot came about after friends and I were reminiscing over the great number of us that had babies in 2013. We thought it would be fun to line them all up chronologically and take a picture. It eventually morphed into a full photo shoot for all of us, including individual shots of each mom and baby. I set everything up in camera, posed everyone, and then had an aspiring photographer friend start snapping away. This is my absolute favorite picture from our time. f/5, ISO 1600, 1/320s, shot in the evening in my friend’s guest room with window light (it was the only time we could all make our schedules work).
 

What critique from Chic Critique Forum did you find helpful after sharing this image?

I actually didn’t get critique on this image…but I really appreciate the critique I’ve received from many other images I’ve posted in the forum!
