Why Choose Ata-Girl?
Basically, we live in a world where anyone can be a "professional photographer." We all have or can access the same equipment, we all use the same locations and we all know the same poses. My aim is to give you a complete experience; to use my passion and my skill to tell your story. Below, I've listed some key differences that I think set me apart from other photographers. I hope these five distinctions help you make an informed decision when choosing someone to capture your special memories.
I am going to be as professional as I can each second I am serving you. I am going to do my best to ensure you have an amazing and memorable experience with me from the second you pick up the phone to call me until you decide the place you'll hang your wall art in your home.
I have been a professional photographer since 2010. I have never thought I’ve made it and have always tried to learn more, do better and remain humble. There is always room for growth. I don’t actually think I’ll ever reach the top. The day I think I’ve arrived is probably the same day I should stop serving people.
Yes, I actually enjoy this! It is a bonus to make a living doing this, but I love being able to document and capture so many important pieces of people’s lives. I love thinking that in 100 years, there will be many families sitting around a room, telling stories about each other and pointing fondly at images I took.
Not only do I take incredible pride in my craft, I take an incredible amount of pride in the fact that I am invited into people's private lives to document their family history. This invitation is sacred to me and I hold it near and dear to my heart. Each time I decide to press my shutter, it is a conscious decision to show my clients how proud I am that they have allowed me into their lives.
I'm not going to sell you an album from Shutterfly or Wal-Mart. I am not going to hand you a CD and encourage you to print a canvas at Walgreens. What I am going to do is offer you quality, premier products—some even handcrafted in Italy. I have spent years researching and comparing products in the industry and I know which ones are the best ones. I have secured accounts with these professional labs that you can’t have consumer access to. And, I’ve negotiated discounts with these labs to pass them along to you. I’ve curated these amazing collections so they can hang in your home, sit on your coffee tables and be passed down to your great-grandchildren—becoming your family heirlooms.
