It’s great to meet you.
I’m guessing you’re here because you’ve browsed my site and you’re interested in learning something about me. Thank you for stopping by!
Okay, so to start, unless you’re from Eastern Europe, you’re going to pronounce my name wrong. For a proper introduction, my name is pronounced like Bonnie, but with a V: Vanie.
My goal is to help you succeed. I want to empower you with the tools you need to market yourself effectively. I do this by engaging you and directing you instead of posing you. I’m after images that show you full of life, not vacant stares. If you don’t like to pose for the camera, you’ve definitely found the right photographer!
A few facts about my sessions:
I may not be the lowest bidder, but I get the job done right the first time. You get images that have personality, warmth, and most importantly, the quality you need to help with your marketing needs.
I get that I provide a service, that you’re paying for that service, and whatever you say goes, with my expert input of course!
I’m the all time director. You may or may not have much experience in front of the camera. No matter what your level of experience is, I’m really good at directing you, putting you at ease, and coaxing your personality to the light!
I’m also a bit old school. You’ll appreciate the professional environment with my team. We don’t dump our bad day on you, instead we listen to you and your needs, so you can relax and feel like you’re getting a full service session. After all it’s your big day!
No God-complexes here, need I say more?
I take pride in knowing that you will leave your session having had a positively stellar experience!
Factoid: In their reviews, my clients consistently mention how easy it is to work with me.
My photography career would not have come to fruition if it weren’t for my late father, Sahag Mikaelian. If you’re wondering, yes that is an Armenian name, and yes, I’m full-blooded Armenian. My dad was the professional hobbyist, and he’s the reason I picked up the camera. In my teens, I started documenting people (my favorite subject), mostly my peers, and becoming known as, “the girl with the camera.” What I shoot for fun these days can be seen in my personal portfolio.
