The Blonde Brain Behind The Business

Hey! Welcome to my little space on the internet. I’m Beth Lavin, the girl behind the business. It’s lovely that you want to know a little bit more about me! So to fill you in…

I was always known at school as “the girl with the camera” and it would regularly make an appearance at most house parties and social occasions. I’ve been taking pictures of drunk people throwing shapes from the age of 16. So rest assured, I’m well prepared for your evening celebrations on your wedding day.

As time moved swiftly on and the days of house parties came to an end, I was wondering how I could make my dream of becoming a professional photographer a reality. And through the power of Twitter, they did. You can read more about that story here. What I will say is this, social media is a bloody powerful tool and I fully encourage entering competitions. Just sayin’.

If you did read the Twitter story blog post, then you’ll know I won the 60 seconds to change your life competition hosted by The Photography Show, Nikon & Training by Lumiere. And if you didn’t read the post… well now you know too! Since winning, I’ve been incredibly lucky to have been trained by some of the best in the business and received a lot of equipment to help my business get started.

Fast forward to now, and I’ve already worked with some amazing couples and fabulous small businesses owners. I can’t wait to see where this journey takes me and I hope you stick around to see it too.

Fun Facts About Me

I’ve grown up with dogs all my life and they are just the best creatures. Our family dog is Poppy and she’s a Jack Russell. I also love Owls.

I love reading, I was a total bookworm at school. My favourite genre of books has to be crime novels. Getting stuck into a good book that leaves you hanging off the edge of your seat is the BEST.

This is SUCH a hard one. I friggen love food. I’m a meat eater and steak is one of my favourite things to eat. If you love steak too and haven’t been to Hawksmoor you need to go. Pasta is another one of my fave foods, I’m pretty sure 78% of my body is made up of it. Also – cheese. I don’t need to say how much I enjoy cheese. It speaks for itself.

Uhhh like you didn’t know. I think it might be… pink?

I’ve been fortunate to visit a few countries and my favourite destinations so far have been; Brisbane, New York & Budapest.

Travel photographer. I couldn’t think of anything better than packing my bags with my camera in hand ready to travel the world. I just have this burning urge to explore and see what else this incredible planet has to offer.

So there we are! A little snippet into my life and the start of my journey as a photographer. Be sure to check out my wedding gallery and my personal branding info to view my work and the blog where I post tips & tricks and behind the scenes stories from recent shoots. Thanks for stopping by!
