Life captured one photo at a time

Yellow Butterfly Photography and how I came to be.

After working diligently on my 365 project last year, I decided to dive head first into taking more portraits. I have been working hard on educating myself and the opening steps for my business.  I am so excited to welcome Yellow Butterfly Photography into my life. 


Why Yellow Butterfly Photography you ask? I already had a name with my Mamarazzi Adventures blog.  Why would you change something you worked so hard to get acknowledged?


I took a job last year before the holidays at one of the big professional photography studios.  I was appauled at the way these photographers interacted with clients.  One cursed regularly in front of children.  One photographer went to put her hand on a child with special needs. Holy cow! The lack of understanding and caring.  Then I started getting Holiday cards in the mail from this same studio.  Oh no, I could see the rushed work that parents were spending their hard earned money for.  I knew at that point, even with little knowledge at the time, that I could do better.  Needless to say, I didn't stay long.


The name itself started with a few years back with my daughter attending a special education preschool.  Before the children could recognize their names, they were given a symbol and a color.  Wait for daughter was a yellow butterfly.  You guessed it.


There it is. The birth of a company with a name that means so much to me. 


My goal comes from the Yellow Butterfly name and where it originated from.  A class room that had wonderful patient teachers and a place where both typically developing children and special needs children were accepted for who they were.  I hope that I can live up to being the incredibly patient photographer to all children. Autism, Downs Syndrome, ADHD, developmental delays, physical disabilities and other conditions do not and should not limit access to quality photography.  I want to take into consideration the clients' needs and abilities while providing the much loved photographic memories of childhood.   

Come one, come all. Yellow Butterfly Photography is open.
