Meet Our Members on Monday: Renee Marie Photography

We’re starting off the week with a feature on Renee Marie Photography, awesome photographer and Two Bright Lights user! 246B0532

Renee is a natural light, lifestyle photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area. She specializes in family photography, but also enjoys special event photography (recently expanded to include weddings).A mother of three children, ages 10 and under, Renee has a unique ability to capture the natural innocence of her smallest clients in a relaxed and organic manner, while also focusing on the importance of the full family dynamic. Her sessions are filled with laughter, light and a lot of love! Using the scenic backdrops of the California Bay Area, her work maintains a natural look and feel while also celebrating the area in which she was born and raised.

Renee’s attention to detail has also helped to put her on the map in her community as a popular event photographer. With a blend of detail, candid and portrait shots, her event galleries are well-rounded and tell the story of each special occasion from start to finish. She’s excited to apply her event experience and love of new beginnings to weddings in 2014!

Renee’s Top Pro Tips

1. Practice, Practice, Practice. One of the most important things I did for myself when I was just beginning was to shoot on a daily basis. If I didn’t have clients booked, I would use my own children, or friends and family.

2. Set regular goals for yourself and when you reach one, set a NEW one! I find that I am the most motivated when I have a goal to strive for. It keeps me accountable and gives my business regular momentum so I am always moving forward.

3. Fellow photographers are your FRIENDS! Don’t be intimidated by other photographers because you fear you are too new or don’t have the same knowledge they do. We have an amazing community of really talented, helpful people who are willing to embrace newcomers and set you on the right path to success.

4. Shoot what you LOVE! When you shoot what you love, it shows in your images. Clients can see and feel the difference. Shooting what you love takes the ‘work’ out of your sessions, and keeps them fresh and natural.

Renee doesn’t only shoot parties, she also has an eye for capturing touching family portraits! This session was taken at the famous San Francisco Sutro Baths, overlooking Ocean Beach and the Pacific Ocean. A great mix of meaningful closeup shots, candid family fun and breathtaking landscapes memorializes what must have been a very special day for both the family and photographer!
