I started photography when I was super little. Yep, I freaking loved my parents Polaroid camera. It was my fave. Then for graduation I got my first film camera. Boom passion created.

While taking photos I was, you know doing what I was supposed to be doing… going to college and wishing I could just be a photographer. After 2 years of junior college and 2.5 years of Fresno State University I got my BS degree in Geomatics Engineering.

So I did the college thing, got the job, started a career, and the entire time all I wanted to do was take pictures of pretty places, document peoples life journey, others love stories, and just be outside in nature.

So a few years went by of this lovely cubical life, I decided to start a side hustle.

Thank you so very much for stopping by and checking out my website. Here is a little about me, the girl behind the lens.

They say that your about me page is the most important page of your entire website. Yep no pressure at all right? So I have made this page over and over and over again. I began talking about how I am an accomplished award winning photographer. How Photography is my true passion. How I love nature…. blah blah blah blah blah.

So then I decided to keep it short and sweet. Ya, that didn’t work either.

Third time is a charm hopefully

So now I am here trying again. Trying to make my about me page actually about me, about my photography, and really about what I believe when it comes to photography. So…. here goes nothing….

Boom, Bessie Young Photography was created.

I love a little bit of everything and my photography shows that. Everyone says that you need to ‘find your niche’, but you know I think I found mine by not really finding any… I am a landscape photographer that loves taking pictures of people in beautiful places. Weird? I think it is seriously the best gig ever. Like the best of both worlds really. I love taking landscape photos, I love taking portraits, I love documenting peoples stories, so here I am doing all of them through various outlets.

My style also resembles all of this. If you want to find out a bit more about the experience, or what you are getting yourself into when you hire me, check out this page here.
