Hi my name is Leticia...I consider myself more of an Outdoors/On Location photographer who prefers more natural settings, such as a park or a public garden. Our Loving Father has supplied us with an endless array of Gorgeous backdrops in nature, that simply can not be re-created indoors. I do however, have a studio set up in my home for more formal portraits, that I also really enjoy using. In the studio...I love to use props and creative lighting, to create different moods. If you have preferences on where you would like to shoot...a special place, for instance, that has Special meaning for you, please let me know. I also welcome any ideas you may have on backgrounds, settings, or lighting in order to create the type of photo or feeling that you would like for me to capture...Afterall, these are YOUR portraits and I want you to be happy with every part of the creation. I have been doing freelance photography for about 10 years; My first job as a professional photographer was at a Newspaper, I was hired as their Sports Photographer. Although, I have found that what I truly enjoy is photographing people on Special Occassions, such as Weddings, Engagements, Bridal, Family, Individual, Children's, Maternity Portraits as well as, Graduation and Junior/Senior Portraits...etc. I am also a Stock Photographer, I have my images on several Stock Photography websites, and their clients purchase my photos. Those images are photos that you may see on Billboards, or brochures/pamphlets, magazines, newspaper ads...this is totally a different type of photography, and I love it, keeps me on my toes and my creative juices flowing. You have to come up with different concepts that business people are looking for to sell their individual products, so they go onto these Stock Photo sites and purchase photos for thier ads, as fun as Stock Photography is, my true love of photography is Capturing the Magical Moments of WEDDINGS! Seeing their faces light up when they see that I have captured a special moment or feeling or look is priceless! I love to put an artistic flare to my photos, whether it be with black and white imaging, a soft diffused glow, multi-exposure shots, a vintage sepia look or other special effects.
On a more personal note...I'm a wife and mother of two, we live in Covington, Wa. My husband's name is Adam, and he's a Web Developer, it is fantastic living with my very own WebMaster...I have learned alot from him and he has taught me how to manage my own website, so now I can make changes or add information and upload images and music without having to ask him to make any changes for me. My son Daniel is 26 yrs. old, and he's a Pharmacy Technician ( he is also very artistic and has his own Art Gallery Website at: http://www.danielreygarcia.com Go check it out he is very talented), he is married and has two children, and they call me "Glama" I call them my "Glama Girls". And I have a beautiful daughter named Finesse she is 20 yrs. old. Of course, I have been photographing them since infancy...Capturing moments is my passion. I have always been pretty Artistic...Most of my young life I displayed it with my drawings and sketches, and then as a Teenager through to early Adulthood I discovered the joy of Photography, which to me is another form of Art. I also love and have a soft spot for animals, I guess that would explain all 7 of my pets, newest member is a 1.6 lb. yorkie. And in case you hadn't noticed my favorite color is Pink ;)
Thank you so much for visiting my website, I hope you enjoy the photographs as much as I enjoyed capturing them.
