Meet Pam Davis of Savoring The Sweet Life Photography

Today we’d like to introduce you to Pam Davis.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Pam. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I’ve been a photographer FOREVER. I started taking photos and designing albums when I was a little kid and the passion continued into adulthood when on the urging of friends, I took a leap and opened my own business and Savoring The Sweet Life Photography was born! (ta-DAAAA!)

Every single element of my business has been carefully planned– customer experience is my #1 concern. I want my clients to be blown away with every single part of the Savoring The Sweet Life experience! (And judging from amazing reviews and the high number of repeat customers and referrals, I know I’ve succeeded in this.)

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
My amazing journey has been filled with fun and smiles, but it hasn’t always been easy. Like the time at a beach portrait session when an unexpected giant wave hit all of us– EEK! (But I saved the camera! Yay – cue the roar of the crowd!) Building a business takes lots of time and effort – I’ve pretty much always put in 80+ hour work weeks but since I love it, I don’t mind. (Seriously- I do love it!)

I have high expectations so I do everything myself – I want to personally make sure every customer swoons with happiness over their photographs and their experience.

Savoring The Sweet Life Photography – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
“Capturing a moment in time for you to cherish forever” is the framework for each and every portrait session and wedding. My technical background and stellar customer service sets me far apart from my competition. (100% of my Yelp and Wedding Wire reviews are Five-stars! And I’m a lifelong learner, so I’ve enjoyed thousands of hours of photography education, training, and conferences.)

I consider all my clients to truly be my friends and my goal is to be their photographer for life! All my portrait sessions are an hour long – this gives clients lots of time to relax and have fun (if you’ve ever been to a photo studio where you get 10 minutes and a few poses then they kick you out – you’ll know how stressful portraits can be.) I’m the opposite! We always have fun with unlimited poses, unlimited outfits and we can meet anywhere in beautiful San Diego. Most of my fully retouched client galleries feature 100-300 portraits!

I have professional gear and I know how to use it! That guarantees great focus, lighting and technical quality in every portrait. I capture some video to give clients a video show with every portrait session and wedding! I’m trained to guide everyone into flattering poses and make sure the whole family has fun. I specialize in Family, High School Senior and Child portraits as well as Weddings, Engagements and Events…I promise to go all out to be my client’s photographer for life!

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success to me is pride in knowing I’m capturing special moments that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. I’ve received so many wonderful notes and testimonials that I know I’m succeeding.

Success is also having a job that I love, living the life God designed for me and having a positive impact on the lives of my family, my friends and my clients. I am so blessed!
