Honey Bee Photography
I really fell in love with photography back in fifth grade when my oldest sister decided she was "a model" (LOL) and would make me take pictures of her any chance we had. Fast forward to high school, my best friend and I borrow her mom's camera any chance we get and explore the backroads good ole Pike County, MO. So when I finally decided to pull the trigger, buy my own camera, and start my own business during the spring semester of my freshman year of college, not a single person I knew was surprised.
I love getting to meet new people, and create images that really bring out your or your family's personality -- let me know what I can do for you :)

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I want you to be as comfortable as possible with me. I typically send you a quick questionnaire about you, your s.o., your family, etc. because your pictures should be about YOU and showcasing YOUR personality! From there, I try to find the best locations for you, offer a few options, and we'll go from there!
What types of customers have you worked with?
Families, Seniors, Couples, Individual, etc.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I'm a firm believer in keeping myself grounded, which is why I'm constantly looking for new ideas and looking for fun ways to be able to offer free photoshoots (as can be found on my facebook and instagram (@honeybeephoto.ss)!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
Photography can often feel extremely expensive, but any photographer should be able to show you their cost breakdowns (especially if you're asking). We charge for our time, expertise, editing, etc. You're really paying for the quality of the work provided, but you need to also remember not to compromise yourself and what you're looking for in a photographer (it's all about you!), so if you feel uneasy about pricing from a photographer, politely decline (I promise it won't hurt our feelings!) :)
What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
-Pricing (and what that really breaks down as/what you're paying for)
-Get to know them (it makes you a million times more comfortable in front of their camera)
-Do your research into what their editing style is (check their social media page(s)
