Art & Life with Bekah Peace

Today we’d like to introduce you to Bekah Peace.

Bekah, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I grew up in San Diego and I was homeschooled which I really believe is a huge reason for my love for art. Many hours at home gave me extra time to use my imagination. 🙂 My first job at age 16 was working in a portrait studio and that’s when my love for photography started and now I have been a photographer for 12 years. I am a self-taught photographer. My degree is in Psychology, so studying people goes along well with photography.

My career started in child & family photography. Now it has progressed to newborns, children, family, headshots, commercial, celebrity and event photography. I also am the official event photographer for La Jolla Playhouse. Event photography has become a very big part of my career and I have had the opportunity to photograph some very inspirational speakers events such as Laura Bush, Ben Carson, Taya Kyle and the talented recording artist Steven Tyler with the band Aerosmith.

What sets me apart from other photographers is my passion. I am so excited after a shoot to get home and edit the images. I feel extremely blessed every day to do what I love as a career. I think life is too short not to be doing something which you really believe in.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I strive to create photos which portray real, emotion. I love to help with choosing wardrobe, setting and location to create the perfect image. Lighting is key, so I always look for a place with that soft, golden, glowing light coming in. This creates a fairy tale look reflecting on the children and families. I bring props based on the style the client is going for.

In your view, what is the biggest issue artists have to deal with?
I think making new relationships and keeping up with your clients can help you sustain a long career. I think a challenge many artists face is not networking, which is a huge part of growth in this industry.
