As a mother of eight and a grandmother of eleven, Rebecca Martin knows what it takes to make a photograph of a large family. She enjoys the challenge of working with a variety of people and various ages. Whether it be a family, a couple, a wedding or an individual portrait, Rebecca believes meeting with clients prior to the session is essential to creating meaningful and genuine portraits. Working with and training her daughter in photography has brought great joy. They have photographed multiple weddings together, specializing in the sacramental. Rebecca’s goal as a photographer is, “to capture an image of the innate beauty in each person, event and moment. Each is a unique gift.”
Side note: Rebecca bought her first DSLR using her other super power, her nose. Yes, she has been trained to recognize the notes and intensity of scents for SC Johnson Company (makers of Glad products, etc).
