About Me

Hello, I’m Pamela…

I am the owner and curator of À Vie Photography, LLC.  To me, À Vie – French, meaning for life – is an extension of myself and the way I perceive life.  I find life to be a masterfully created gift of opposites, balance, and wondrous order that has the potential to keep inspiration flowing and our souls fed if we allow ourselves to see.

The fine art focus in my images comes from my past experiences and training in the arts and design.  I studied Interior Design and Fine Art in college, and every time I had the chance to choose an elective it was… photography.  I spent many hours learning the art of film photography and creating images in the darkroom.  This led to refining skills that I had no idea, at the time, would be the very tools that would allow my work to speak my heart one day.  Over the years, I owned and operated businesses in custom interior/exterior design, and taught many classes in various aspects of the fine arts.  Once the days of digital became part of our world, those years of art and design helped me to hone my creative talents and allow me to take my photography where it had never gone before.

Today, I get to use those years of being steeped in art and design and add one more AMAZING element – people – and even more awe inspiring to me, their connection to this world and each other.  So, I pray that you see what I am talking about as you view my images, and that you feel free to contact me if you would like to capture that connection between you and/or yours in a custom designed, artful, fine art collection of images.

Because, its for the way we live, for the way we love, for life…À Vie.
