Hey there! Let me introduce myself...

I'm Bernadette, owner and photographer here!

A Little About Me

I am married to my childhood sweetheart, Joel-Michael, and together we are raising our two children, Monica and Damien, and expecting baby #3 in September 2019.

I love romantic moonlight walks on the beach. I love mint chocolate chip ice cream on brownies during a movie night. I love earl grey tea, and reading books by Francine Rivers. I am passionate about photography, and I'm obsessed with gallery-wrapped canvases - I wish I could have them all over my house!

Why I Do What I Do

When I was a sophomore in college, I had a friend of mine take some pictures of me to celebrate the warm weather. They are some of the best photos I have of myself. Ever since that day I have been in love with crisp, high quality photos. I believe that everyone deserves to see their true beauty and worth. A good photo can help you to see this! I know most photographers prefer to be behind the camera, taking the photos, but I love both sides of it!

A Little About My Skills

I graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in May of 2015 with a degree in Communication Arts. I took classes there that helped me improve my photography, but I am primarily a self-taught photographer; I have learned everything I know from my photographer mentors, blogs, YouTube, and lots and lots of practice! I bought my first high-end camera in 2012 and started my business in 2013. 

Bern is an amazing photographer! She did our engagement and wedding photos. She made each time so much fun and knew exactly what photos to take. If she didn’t live four hours away from me I would be having her do more photos for my family.

Best photographer I’ve ever worked with. A short photoshoot produced the best pictures of me that have ever been taken.”
