You may have noticed there has been some changes around these parts. So, why the new name? When I originally opened for business in 2010 I chose the name “Bella Vita Photography” on a whim. It was something I picked and thought “yeah that’ll work!” I never imaged that my little side business would eventually grow into a full time career. As time has passed I’ve felt that Bella Vita doesn’t suit my style and personality anymore. As sad as I am to tell my old Bella Vita self “goodbye” I’m excited about what the future holds for Gianna James Photography!
When choosing a name this time around I wanted something that held meaning for me while still sounding professional. If you’ve ever hired me for a shoot then you probably know that I have two little ones, Thomas (6) and Sophia (4) and a really handsome guy, James (32 haha!!). I love their guts.
*Insert awkward photo of what my family life is really like:
Gianna is my daughter’s middle name and James is my son’s middle name. My children are both my biggest blessing and hardest challenge in life. They’ve taught me so much about myself and what it is to have unconditional love for another. It was an obvious choice for me to incorporate them into the new name, Gianna James Photography.
I’m so excited to see where 2015 brings us! I’ve worked out a new pricing structure that will now allow clients to choose which images they would like in digital packages as well as offering print packages and including fun, new products!
Thank you to all of my families who have continually hired me time after time again. I truly consider the families that come to me to be great friends. I am so very blessed to have a job that I love, to wake up and be excited about my work. I hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
