Hi, I’m Pam of Pamela Soper Photography.
I began studying Art long ago in elementary school. My interest in Art continued in high school, and on through college. I think I have always created art in some shape or form. I received my first camera when I was 10, and it was love at first snap.
I have traveled the world, visiting museums, cathedrals and castles, viewing the very art that I studied in school. I have combined this interest in fine art with my love of photography. I see the same light and color balances, perspectives and meaning in photography as in paintings. I am always striving to improve my skills by attending conferences, seminars, classes and workshops. I am a member of the Professional Photographers Association (PPA), and a past member of the Virginia Professional Photographers Association (VPPA). I have a close relationship with fellow photographers, with whom I share ideas and keep current.
On a personal level, I am married to the love of my life, and we have 5 grown children and 9 grandchildren . I am also a retired elementary school teacher and administrator, with many fun years of experience. When it comes to working with young children, teens and families, I am right in my element. I have a lot of patience, and a talent for connecting with my subject to get that perfect smile or expression. I like to have fun in our sessions, and want it to be a great experience for everyone involved. I think that comes through in my photos.
Most of all, I am so very honored to be a part of turning your special dreams into memories, and your memories into forever keepsakes. I love making new forever friends, and am grateful and appreciative to my faithful returning clients/friends, and hope to make you a part of that fun group!
