Today’s guest blogger, Vivian Doan, is someone I’ve had the pleasure of working with for both professional + personal photographs. Creative, fun, energetic, passionate + artistic, Vivian is a phenomenal photographer and person.
I am one of those camera-shy people and so was delighted/surprised/impressed (you get the picture…sorry couldn’t resist) when I ended up really enjoying our session together. Her photos for my Solve My Space website transformed and brought it to life. It was such a success that we also did a family session (again all of us camera-shy….except my daughter) and we all had a blast. It was an afternoon spent traipsing around alleyways in our neighborhood + capturing moments together with Vivian as our guide, finding the exact time to take photos we will forever cherish. What I find so unique is that the entire experience of working with Vivian is what counts–fun, natural, easygoing + inspiring. And her photographs are truly amazing. I like to tell her she’s a magician and while she’ll deny it, I know many (many) others would agree with me.
I love the whole philosophy behind Solve My Space and other movements towards minimalism. Less is more. So this holiday season, why not give a loved one the gift of memories instead of things? One of my favorite things in the world to do is to curl up on a couch and look at photos, new and old but especially of my cherished ones.
Vivian Doan Photography offers gift certificates of any amount towards beautiful natural light portrait photography. My job is to capture smiles, to capture the lovely bonds between family members, to freeze moments in time that you can treasure forever.
If you ask me to describe my style of photography, in a few words, I these would be those words:
My clients often tell me how comfortable they feel in front of my lens and are always surprised about how amazing they look in their photos. I am just so happy to make others happy, and to see the photos that we create together on their walls and on their blogs/Facebook pages.
I have over 8 years of experience in the field, completely professional gear and hundreds and hundreds of sessions behind my belt. But most of all, I love taking photos. I especially love portraits. I love people. I can easily say I am a people person!
I also have an innate understanding of good light for photography and can guide you towards having the best session possible, under the best conditions possible. Light makes all the difference, where it comes from and how to use it.
If you mention the Solve My Space Advent calendar, I will offer a $25 discount off a session fee in 2015 (does not include Saturday or Sunday sessions).
