Describe your business: Songs of Life Photography is a full service photography studio offering many products and merchandise and specializing in authentic, lifestyle photography. My main focus is families (especially extended ones) and children, but welcome all. I am in the business of giving clients an experience they will remember, laugh, and smile about when they look at their beautiful memories on their wall.
Sessions last between 45 minutes and 2 hours depending on circumstances. I do not watch the clock as often times the best expressions come toward the end of the session, and I want that to be captured for you. Songs of Life has an in home studio, and sessions can be held on location, in the studio or both locations depending on time.
My style of photography is authentic and transparent; meaning: I want to showcase my clients and who THEY are. I value my relationships with my clients immensely and consider them my friends. I wish for my clients to feel respected and valued and walk away from their session feeling a part of the Songs of Life family. Photography has little to do with cameras, but everything to do with people. It is the beauty of life captured.
Why did you start your own business?: Songs of Life was created from a desire to showcase the beauty in the world, and to showcase people's memories and dreams via photography. I value the ability to hand down memories (prints, tangible merchandise) to future generations, so capturing people in an authentic, transparent way is the best way to do that. With technology the way it is, anyone can take a picture, but will that digital file still be available in 10 years? Being able to showcase people and who they are and then having that in a tangible product for them and their families and friends to see is wonderful.
Tell us something unique about your business: I am a full-service photography business that offers many different products and merchandise. Clients can do "one-stop shopping!"
What's the best part of owning your own business?: The best part of "owning" Songs of Life photography is being with the wonderful people I get to photograph. I value my relationships with them, and that also helps me understand more about their hopes and expectations for sessions, so I can better serve them. Plus, I love seeing children grow up!
