In 2006 I began taking portraits, purchasing the necessary studio equipment and taking the necessary steps to open my studio. In 2014 I found my passion in shooting "Glamour, Beauty & Intimate Portraiture" and opened a "Studio for Women". I love taking pictures of women, where "They Want To Be The Best Version of Themselves". Our mission is to capture every women's "best beautiful" with images of beautiful, strong, feminine, confident and sexy women, regardless of her age, size, shape, health or mobility and allowing them to be creative, letting them have fun while I am photographing them, which reflects their beauty inside and out. In my opinion, this is the BEST BEAUTY a women can have. This is how your pictures will truly reflect YOU...A WOMEN'S STORY!!! Anyone can snap a picture but I want to create memories that will last forever and tell your story.
Before "Butterfly Reflections Photography" opened, I loved to (and still do) shoot everything around me, I have a gallery which reflects the landscapes, waterscapes, old buildings, abandon vehicles in the middle of nomads land, abstracts, pretty much anything classic. It also reflected oddities and random situations- natural or man-made, I have come across over the years. I am always prepared to search for and capture the "Best" image I can. When you look at an image, no matter how many times, you will see something new or different that wasn’t seen before. This not only amazes me, but it excites me as I attempt to capture the beauty and emotion that can be seen everywhere and in anything...as long as one chooses to see it, with endless possibilities. Photography is a wonderful tool to express those choices. I will continue to capture it for as long as I am allowed to do so. You will find samples of those pictures at http://www.betterphoto.com?bonniejmf. I am dedicating this site to portraits, relationships, families, love expression and life.
I believe beauty is all around us and there are always shots to be captured. I love sharing moments with others as I view the world. I want my photography to reflect beauty through expression. Moments slip by us so fast and I want to catch each moment through expressions to be passed on to the next generations.
Life has taken me in many directions but led me back to photography. I have been taking photos for as long as I can remember, but was introduced to digital photography well over 18 years ago. When I discovered this fantastic world of digital, I decided to take photography to the next level. Photography not only became my passion but became my obsession!
