Bonita Jade Photography, Yanchep WA
How did you get started as a photographer?
I fell in love with photography after having my first baby. He had some photos done and I just absolutely admired the work that goes into. I loved the creativity side and from there I started learning and started up Bonita Jade Photography.
What did life look like before photography?
I worked in the mining industry as a purchasing officer, so it was a massive career change going into photography.
Tell us about a day in the life of a professional photographer …
Exciting, rewarding, hard and sometimes lonely. But mostly rewarding!
Do you have a special story to share?
I was taking my newborn nephews photos and being a little inexperienced at the time I though placing him nude in a white cane basket was a fabulous idea. I was totally wrong when he pooped yellow poop all through the basket haha! Prop was ruined after that. He also continued to poop down my hands when I picked him up..oops!
If you could photograph 1 thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
texI think it would totally be newborns. I feel that is where my creativity and passion is the most so I could take their photos all day long.
What is the best thing about your job?
Being able to create precious life time moments for my clients. It’s so rewarding seeing them hang up my work in their homes. And getting all the baby snuggles hehe
Tell us something we don’t know about professional photography …
Hmm tough one, I think people don’t truly understand the work we do once we have taken the images. There is so much more that goes into completing client galleries.
If you weren’t a photographer, what would you be doing?
I would more than likely have returned back the mining industry.
Here’s a blank cheque! What are you going to spend it on for your business?
Another Lens haha one can never have enough lenses.
