About Bethany Joy
Hey, there! I'm Bethany, a sixteen year old people and pet photographer, living on the sunny Central Coast of California. I am the youngest of five and couldn't imagine my life without my siblings. I could eat Taco Bell for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I am Twenty One Pilot’s biggest fan, as well as the biggest animal-lover with seven pets - a dog, a bunny, three rats, and two birds.
I became interested in photography when I was eleven years old, using my older brother's camera to photograph my beagle shih-tzu Cooper. I quickly realized how much I loved being behind the camera. Throughout the next year, I had the desire to take it more seriously. I went from photographing my dog to photographing my family and friends, which grew into Bethany Joy Photography.
This last year, I switched from full-time private school to independent studies. I am incredibly grateful that I was able to pursue this option. It has been very significant in how I am growing my business. I am able to give the time and attention that my clients deserve.
Photography has truly become my passion. It's hard to put into words. I am always eager to get out and photograph- I crave it. Being able to capture a moment in time - the joyful, emotional, playful, and candid - is why I do this and love it so much.
I hope I get the opportunity to share my passion with you. Let's create!
