Me & My Studio

The name BellaRay comes from my two girls; Kaytlynn Belle, and Jaylee Rae.

It also means Beautiful Light, which I feel is very fitting as it takes Beautiful light to help me get the photos of all my beautiful clients!

I am first and foremost a Mother. Aside from the two girls mentioned above, I have one adorably handsome little guy named Lincoln, and another daughter who was born in 2013 named Charlotte.  I am also a Wife to a wonderful Man who I am lucky to call my best friend.

I have loved photography my “whole life” at the age of only nine I set my mind out to win a blue ribbon at the county fair for best photo. With the help of my Dad’s Canon film camera and my little brother decked out in cowboy gear, I not only won a blue ribbon, but best in show! I continued my love for photography, but it blossomed again in college, where a few good friends and myself started perfecting our skills and shooting sessions again. We all worked together full time at a chain studio in the mall, and in our spare time took pictures of families, seniors, and engagements. Now, over 10 years later, all 4 of us are still taking pictures, one even shoots weddings all over the world!

I can honestly say that I love what I do! It makes me happy as I work hard to be not just good, but a Great Photographer. It is so rewarding when I know I have caught something on camera that is not only beautiful, but will surely be a keepsake for generations.

What makes me different from alot of the other photographers out there is confidence. I know my camera, and all my gear inside and out, I come to sessions prepared and relaxed & because of this, my clients tend to relax and be themselves too. You will also see that I don’t take life to seriously, I like to laugh, take my time and genuinely get to know all my clients.

I hope you will choose to give me a call and that I can help you get pictures you are proud to show off forever.  ~Amber
