Meet Deanna…   

Hi!  My name is Deanna Belser and I am so glad you stopped by to see who I am…

I am a Mom to two amazing grown children, a Mimsy to two beautiful little girls, and a wife to my best friend & soul mate.  I love going to the beach, relaxing on my back porch, hanging out with friends, watching movies and of course love, love, love photography.  Maternity & Newborns are my favorite things to photograph but I have to admit I am inspired by all photography.  I Love playing with light and capturing a moment that will forever be treasured.

My journey into photography was not overnight; it took me quite a while to harness my gifts, talents, passions and creativity into a career in photography; but I am so thankful to finally be doing what I love for a career.  The best thing is to see the joy, smiles & tears in my clients when they see their photos for the first time.  That gets me excited and I am always so honored to have had the opportunity to be apart of a special time in the lives of my clients.

My photography education and training is an ongoing journey however, I started out taking classes at New York Institute of Photography and continued learning through workshops, online training, reading a library of books from everything to photography, camera gear and business.  Much of my knowledge can be attributed to many of the fabulous photographers who have taught classes and workshops (either in person or online) that I have been blessed to attend through the years… such as Sandy Puc’; Ana Marie Brandt; Kelly Brown; Sue Bryce; Scott Kelby; Julie Klassemeyer; Woody Walters; Blair Phillips; and so many others.

I am an active member of Professional Photographers of America and I have recently earned my designation as a Certified Professional Photographer.  This has been a huge goal of mine and now I will continue on to pursue a photographic degree through the PPA and begin competing in Print Competitions.  I am also an active member of TPPA (Texas Professional Photographers Association) as well as the FWPPA (Fort Worth Professional Photographer Association).

As your photographer my goal is Capture your LIFE; Create amazing ART; Celebrate the LOVE within your family and to provide you with premiere customer service throughout the entire process.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I look forward to meeting you soon!

Love & Laughter –

 Deanna

Meet Jeff…

Jeff is my wonderful hubby and partner in life.  He is the JOY to my soul and I am so very grateful for his love and support.  Jeff is our set builder,  lighting guru, second shooter and co-owner of Specialty Photography.  He is also my biggest cheerleader and encourager, which means the world to me.

Jeff is my go to guy when I get one of my crazy ideas for a photo set or for lighting.  He’s the man in helping bring my visions to life.  I love having our own handy man and master electrician at the studio.  Comes in handy!!! Hehe 🙂

Jeff is also our second shooter for Family and High School Seniors sessions.  I love having him join me in shooting as he is able to capture a totally different perspective than I am and people are usually not watching him, so he truly captures some amazing and unexpected moments.  Together we give an awesome mixture of images to our clients.

Jeff is also a member of the Professional Photographers of America and attends Imaging USA each year along with other industry conferences & workshops to continue his education and growth in the industry as well.

A neat little tidbit… Jeff’s nick name is “Peck”.  Everyone always ask how he got that name, apparently there was a cartoon many many years ago name “Peck’s Bad Boy” and Jeff’s grandfather gave him this nickname.  If you know my hubby you can relate haha!!  He’s quite the jokester!  Anyways during his teen years his friends heard the name and the rest is history.

So, be ready to laugh and have some fun when he’s around 🙂

Meet Anna…

Anna is one of our newest staff members here at the studio.  She is our packaging guru, lighting assistant & baby whisperer.  She plays a very important role in all of our Newborn sessions here at the studio; as she is always near and has a protective hand on our youngest and tiniest of clients.  This enables me to do what I do best in photographing and documenting these little ones,  knowing full well they are safe.  She also provides extra arms & vision during our location sessions; making it possible for us to achieve the best use of light available.

Anna is very creative and adds just the right touch to our set designs and of course our fabulous packaging.  Everyone always loves picking up their images here at the studio… I hear it time and time again “OH it feels like Christmas Time!”  I never get tired of hearing that!!! lol 🙂  And now you know that each and every order you pick up here at SP is packed with care.

I look forward to you all meeting and getting to know Anna, as she makes a wonderful addition to our overall studio team.

FUN TIP… Anna is also my adorable Mom!  Isn’t she cute?!!!  Love having her assistance here at the studio.
