My name is Vanessa Bakker and my life is all about family. Here I am with my children. It is my belief that life is all about the moments in our lives that capture our hearts. I love to capture those moments in photos so that they can be cherished for years to come. It is my honor to be a part of those moments by capturing them for others.
I've always loved taking pictures starting when I was in middle school. In high school, my love for photography grew and I expanded my skills while being a part of our school's newspaper and yearbook , winning several state awards for my photos and eventually leading to a donation to our school to dedicate a club for learning about photography and dark room photo developing.
I began at Winthrop University as a Photography Major but due to tuition struggles could not continue. But that didn't stop me from taking pictures of everything that inspired me. Later, I worked for a Portrait studio where I was able to expand my experience in glamour photography as well as posing for couples, bridal, infant and child portraits. Also, while in Real Estate, I used my photography skills to market properties and build clientele.
So I've had all kinds of experience with all kinds of photography. My favorite though is child and family photography. I love to meet the families and hear the stories from the kids. Being a mother myself, I know how important these moments are and it there where my heart lies. I would love to be a part of capturing those memories for you.
Don't take my word for it though. Use the links below to see some reviews from my clients, view my gallery or contact me directly. Hope to hear from you soon and start capturing those memories.
