Shauna Veasey #PVtakeover

PhotoVision Team

Hey y'all! My name is Shauna Veasey of @shaunaveaseyphotography and I am so excited to be hosting a #pvtakeover the next few days (pinch me)! I can’t wait to meet new film-loving friends over here. 🎞💕 I live in a small town just outside of Atlanta, Georgia with my husband, two sons and our fluff ball Bernedoodle, Blue. 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 🐶 I specialize in wedding and lifestyle photography and have been shooting film a little over 2 years. If I'm not behind the camera, you will most likely find me at a little league baseball game with the family or daydreaming about our next adventure. I love gardening, coffee shops and entertaining our friends and family. ⚾️✈️👩🏼‍🌾☕️ Over the next few days I'll be sharing about my journey as a photographer, along with a few tips and tricks I've learned along the way (mostly the hard way of course, smh). I'm stoked about connecting with you all and would love to get to know you a little better! Let's start here: tell me how photography found you! Stay tuned, I’ll be sharing how photography found me as well!

@shaunaveaseyphotography #pvtakeover Day 1 // Photography found me // When people ask me how I became a photographer, I often tell them, “I didn't find photography, photography found me.” ✨ I was content in my career as a 6th grade special education teacher, but somewhere along the way, photography found me and never let go—ultimately leading to a full-on career change. Now, thinking back on my childhood, it totally makes sense! Ever since I can remember, I have framed images in my mind and been drawn to beautiful sceneries. I recall as a young girl holding my hands up around my eyes as if envisioning the landscape through the viewfinder of a camera. ✋🏼👀🤚🏼Anyone else do this?! 😬 I have also always admired the art of storytelling. As a child, I had quite an imagination and often found myself expressing my creativity through writing 📝💫🦄👽(oh, the stories!). I never would have imagined that those 2 things would one day collide and become my true calling. Fast forward several years later, and what do you know—visual storytelling is the beat of my heart. 📷💕

@shaunaveaseyphotography #pvtakeover Day 1 // Communicate with your lab // First and foremost, I want to rave about the incredible team over at @photovisionprints—where would we be without them?! 🎞✨ I cannot imagine my #filmjourney without this lab and am so grateful for their continued support and incredible customer service every step of the way. Thank you PV—you guys ROCK! 🤘🏼 I have found that communicating with my film lab *regularly* has been one of the most important aspects of creating consistent work and ultimately attracting my ideal client. After some jumping around in search of the perfect lab, I finally met the team at #PhotoVision. PhotoVision took an active role in communicating with me to ensure they were processing my images exactly as I wanted. I encourage you to open the lines of communication with your lab, be very specific about how you want your images to look by submitting preference images and don't be afraid to tell them when you aren't satisfied. If you keep the lines of communication open and ongoing, you will develop a relationship that will ensure consistency in the aesthetic you want to achieve. AKA: #winning

@shaunaveaseyphotography #pvtakeover Day 2 // Let creative shoots fill your cup // Make time for personal work. Over the years, I have found that some of my favorite images have been from sessions or photoshoots I've planned or designed on my own. As an artist, designing and executing your own shoot, with your own vision, allows you to express yourself creatively and authentically. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing something you dreamed up come to life. ✨ I have found that making time for personal work is refreshing and rejuvenating and totally fills my creative tank. And, well—as you know— a full creative tank makes for a better photographer. Whether it be a styled bridal shoot or a simple lifestyle session, set aside a few times during the year to push yourself and photograph something you love.

@shaunaveaseyphotography #pvtakeover Day 2 // Make friends in the industry // There’s nothing more refreshing than a lunch date or coffee meet-ups with other photographers or vendors I’ve met along the way. 👯‍♀️☕️ Most of our job, as photographers, is connecting through social media, so it’s not unusual for us to find ourselves isolated in the office with our never-ending editing and task lists. 🖥💆🏼‍♀️ It is during these very busy seasons I find myself most thankful for my girls! When my creative tank starts running low, my friends inspire me, push me and keep me motivated. These women bless me daily with grace and empowerment and make me dream even bigger. 💪🏼💕 I’m not quite sure what I’d do without them. If you're feeling overwhelmed or uninspired, try reaching out on Instagram to make a new friend. You never know what a blessing their friendship could become.

@shaunaveaseyphotography #pvtakeover Day 2 // Capturing motherhood // To me, the journey of motherhood is one of life’s most beautiful gifts. As a mother of 2 boys, I know how important it is to savor every fleeting moment. As an artist, it is my passion to capture memories, large and small, of mothers celebrating this special season. The second before a kiss, the way his hand reaches out for hers, the tiny wrinkles on a newborn baby’s hands . . . these are the treasures of life we long to remember. Serving mothers by creating tangible, visual heirlooms that preserve these precious moments is a gift I am honored and blessed to share.

@shaunaveaseyphotography #pvtakeover Day 2 // Capturing the details // Styling and photographing details has become one of my favorite parts of telling my couple’s story, but I have to be honest—it hasn’t always been that way. Over the years, I have learned a few tricks to make the process more enjoyable while staying true to my style. Stay tuned for a few tips I’ve picked up along the way!

@shaunaveaseyphotography #pvtakeover Day 3 //5 tips for shooting wedding details //  1.) Make a styling kit you can take with you to the wedding. My kit includes: ribbon, decorative scissors, ring boxes, styling boards (a few I’ve made myself!), trays, fabric, stamps, wax seal press, etc. 2.) Communicate with your couple about what details you would like them to bring. They have never been a bride and groom before, so this is all unknown territory for them. Communication is key. 3.) Find natural light. If I can’t find enough light in the bridal suite or venue by a window, take the invitation suite outside. No shame in the ‘finding good light’  game, y’all! 4.) Email the florist prior to the wedding and request loose flowers to use for styling. This thoughtful touch really makes the details flow cohesively with the rest of the wedding. Flowers are everything, amen?! 5.) Request an hour to cover all details. There is nothing worse than trying to style details in a rush.

@shaunaveaseyphotography #pvtakeover Day 3 // Travel, rest, reset // At times, being a business owner and photographer can be exhausting. Don’t forget to rest and reset when you’re feeling the weight of it all. Exploring new places is my favorite way to find inspiration and gain a fresh, new perspective about my work. Make room for adventures because sometimes a break from your routine and change of scenery is the very thing your creative soul needs.

Friends, before I sign off I wanted to share that I host a two day hands-on photography workshop once a year (@thriveworkshop) and also offer one-on-one mentoring sessions. If you are interested in either of these opportunities or just want to connect I'd love to meet you! Comment below or drop me a DM to say hello! Thank you for following along this week, it has truly been a treat. 💕
