I've known Osiris for nearly 15 years already. From the time I met her, she loved taking pictures. However, back then, she used her cell phone as her primary camera. One day about 6 years ago, she asked me about my camera and what I would recommend to her if she wanted to take her photography more seriously. I told her she would be best to start on a Canon Digital Rebel and as fate would have it, I had an extra one she could borrow indefinitely. I brought it to her shortly thereafter and the next thing I knew, it accompanied her everywhere.
Osiris became dedicated to her trade from the start. At every girls night event, she took pictures of the food, the restaurants, the buildings, the staff, and of course, the girls. I loved the fact that as she progressed, there was often somebody in the room who could take a decent picture of me - something I missed since moving out of my childhood home. And of course, we got to experience our shared passion for photography. Once, she insisted I stand on top of a high-top bench in a crowded bar to assist her in taking the shot with the perfect angle of the vase of flowers sitting on our table. Of course, I did.
Watching her passion morph from a desire to a skill and then to a profession was one of the most rewarding things I've experienced in my photography career. From the first shoot she did with me solo to the most recent family photo boat excursion she managed with our twin four-year-olds, I've watched Osiris truly come into her art. I can proudly say that I saw her through her journey as an amateur until she blossomed into a true professional.
And professional, she is. Osiris not only shoots and edits her photos, but she built and manages her website, as well. She's a bad-ass entrepreneur who can't help but bring out the best side of anybody with whom she interacts... and then capture it with her sly camera skills. In fact, I recently asked my husband, Matt which of the family traditions we've started was his favorite. His response? Photo shoots with Osiris.
The Bottom Line: Osiris Photography is the photographer my family relies on to encapsulate our spirit from year-to-year and I'm looking forward to continuing our tandem growth for years to come.
