Hi, I’m Betty; it’s a pleasure to meet you! Photography chose me in a personal way that began with, what I thought then, was a small historical documenting of my great, great grandmother’s life, her last year that she spent in bed. I picked up a camera and started taking pictures. It didn’t take long before I began to notice real detail—her hands, her eyes, the light around her—the things that make one wonder about everything another person experienced or saw. So much beauty in those details! While the light around my grandmother faded and then expired, what didn’t is the last gift she gave me—a new calling. The camera hasn’t been out of my hands since!
Why specialize in High School Seniors? That’s easy! I cannot tell you how awed I am each time I meet these young people on the cusp of entering adulthood. The innocence, spirit, and depth of imagination they share is invigorating and inspiring—not to mention they love the camera! It is thrilling to provide the process as they merge into full glamor on the day of a shoot and watch them see and know their own beauty. My career is my passion. Driven to seek and learn from the best and, most importantly, never settle, my thirst for learning and staying abreast of photography techniques and the best equipment never ends. It amazes me each day that I have the great fortune to do what I love—from the background management of running a business to interacting with each client who brings new joys and lessons into my life. And to pass on what my grandmother gave to me, mentoring regional photographers is my small way of passing forward that beauty of detail to realms beyond my own. xoxox , Betty Alvarez
