Hi, I'm Paige!
Growing up, my Dad had a camera around his neck pretty much at all times. He documented everything. I guess it was in my blood, and I began photographing people around high school about 1985 (ouch, that seems so long ago!) and was soon obsessed with the capturing moments and action around school for our yearbook.
I always dreamed I would find a career in publishing in New York city for Glamour Magazine or Cosmo. I never quite made it there but never lost the love of fashion and editorial imagery. Fast forward to today, and I create magazine style portraits for every day people.Today my focus is creating beautiful portraits for my clients through magazine-style photo shoots that show them just how gorgeous they are...
At every age!
I love to see the transformation that happens after seeing yourself in a beautiful portrait. We spend so much time worrying about being good enough, or pretty enough, or skinny enough and it's such a waste of time and energy. So the concept of Bellus is to show you your most gorgeous and authentic self . To change the paradigm of "I am not enough."
What would you be if you weren't a photographer?
I would probably a surgeon. Ha. Just kidding. I wasn't a fantastic student :(
But I did love graphic design and wanted to work in the publishing industry in New York city when I was in high school. I actually did interview for a job with Glamour magazine way back in the day. They didn't give me the job because they said I seemed too hyper to sit in a desk all day. They were probably right!
What's your favorite genre to photograph?
I adore action photography and would love to photograph on the sidelines of an NFL football one day. It's my secret dream.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I am a Canon girl! My camera body is the R6 and it is a beast. My favorite lens is the 70-200 2.8. I could share my favorite studio lighting but that's a bit boring and I will spare you :)
A Few Kind Words...
Paige was amazing to work with! She made me feel comfortable and I connected very well with her, which made my photos come out even better! She’s artistic, enthusiastic, and has a great imagination for photography.
