I am Bethany of ByBethany Photography. I grew up in Kenya and began doing photography as a way to tell a story for those who were unable to speak up for themselves. I later took my passion to school and studied at the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. I am now a Coast Guard wife and I have the wonderful pleasure of getting to photograph people in all corners of our nation. While third-world visual journalism still has my heart, I absolutely love portraiture and am thrilled to share this shoot with all of you. For Hayden’s senior portraits I wanted to represent him as best we could without looking “cliche.” We incorporated some of his passions, including his sweet dog, at one of his favorite watering holes – Pinecrest Lake. Enjoy!
