"Our clients are looking for heirlooms. For artwork versus snapshots burned to a disc."  This of course is what draws them to Studio 828 Photography as their photography company. Tell me, how do YOU dream of being photographed?"

"I always thought that people told you you're beautiful, that this was a title bestowed upon you...I think it's time to take this power into our own hands and to say, "You know what? I'm beautiful. I just AM. And that's my light. I'm just a beautiful woman."
