A Chat with ZoeyPhoto
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I capture beautiful moments for couples, friends, and families in a stress-free, outdoor photo session that encourages candid shots and genuine smiles. Most galleries are up for viewing within one week of your session and CDs are mailed the same day as the gallery goes live.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The birth of my daughter triggered the paparazzi in me to come alive and capture those wonderful fingers and toes. Now, four years later I capture memories for others to cherish of their loved ones.
What do you love most about your job?
I love immortalizing genuine smiles and moments that people will remember forever.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
The feedback I hear most often is “Oh my god, I love them!” And it always makes my day to know I captured the perfect moment. Visit my website to see actual feedback from customers.
Though at first she pursued photography only as a hobby, graphic designer Angela Garcia-Lavin fell fully into her passion after the birth of her first child, Zoey Isabel. As she snapped photo after photo of her newborn daughter, other mothers noticed her work and began to enlist her talents. Angela has since branched out to frame candid, photojournalistic, and posed images of not only newborns and toddlers, but also expectant mothers, families, and new couples.
She conducts sessions at emerald-green parks and blooming gardens as well as quiet spots on streets bordered by cars that have had their horns surgically removed. After each session, she translates images into glossy re-touched prints, custom handmade scrapbooks, and printed postcards that showcase her graphic-designer touch.
