Welcome to EJB Photography. Thank you for your interest in my work and for visiting the website. My name is Evelina J. Barnes, I am the artist behind the lens. I specialize in fun, creative, contemporary photography.
My absolute favorite portraits to do are those of newborn babies. There is just something so pure and innocent about them and it only lasts for such a short period of time and that to me it is the most important memory to capture. The best time to capture newborns is under 10 days of age while they still retain the curled posture and are very sleepy. This allows for creative posing and some of the most beautiful portraits. I also love photographing children and capturing their innocence, as well as the love and bond between families. The love the parents have for their children, the way they interact with each other is the most wonderful thing you can capture in pictures and will leave the most lasting memories you can cherish for years to come. I also specialize in senior pictures as well as engagement sessions. Those two are probably the easiest for me because the seniors are so flexible and are willing to go with the flow and let me really bring out the creative juices. Engaged couples just ooze with love so it so easy to capture true emotion.
No matter what type or style of photography you are looking for we can work together in creating one of a kind photographs for you. Something that you will cherish for years to come and would be proud to display in your home just like you would a piece of art. This is how I approach each session, I view the final product as a piece of art but want to ensure that it is special to you and expresses your emotions and the thingsmportant to you at the time of the session.
I am a fun, outgoing kind of girl and I like to have fun during our session and I also like to allow plenty of time for each session so neither one of us feels rushed. I put a lot of time and thought into preparing for each session and also during the final edit of your pictures to ensure that you love your pictures. I welcome your ideas as well as any family heirlooms or your child's favorite toy, blanket, anything at all that you would like to include in your pictures. I have an in home studio which is most suitable for newborn, child and small family sessions. I love to do outdoor sessions and most of them are done during the warmer spring to fall months but I am definitely an outdoor kind of girl and I am not afraid of the cold so if you would like outdoor winter pictures I am the photographer for you. Even though I prefer to use my studio for indoor pictures due to the larger selection of props and backgrounds, I will also travel to your home or to a location of your choice to capture the memories important to you.
