History Of The Business
Growing up, Savanna always had an interest in anything art related and she loved to dabble with cameras. Her mother bought her a beginner camera just before she started college, before she ever took photography seriously. She took a photography class in college and learned how to use a DSLR. Her mom then surprised her with a Canon Rebel her senior year of college, and that is what she used to start taking more photographs. She used this to take photos during the two jobs that she had at the time: a social media manager for a church and a full-time babysitter. She loved learning how to use her camera and practicing it while she was nannying and using her skills to help out at church. She never thought about making photography a business, but families started asking her to take photos for them and eventually it just happened. Being a professional photographer was not something that Savanna ever dreamed about. She likes think her mom was the real catalyst in all of this because if it wasn't for her, she would have never discovered a love for photography. After her mom passed unexpectedly in 2017, she became more passionate about photography because it's truly the only power we have to stop time and capture memories. She wants everyone to be able to capture memories with people that they love.
