I am Beth Shedd, and ‘PhotOptimist’ is home to my photography and graphic design.
Everything I photograph or design is created with a central goal in mind – connection. Whether I am photographing someone or designing something for them to enjoy, my goal is to connect people to those sometimes tiny and often significant ‘keepsake moments’ that bring them joy.
In the area of photography, I do senior, family and professional portraits as well as non-profit event photography. I also do commissioned landscape photography suitable for framing. In the area of design, I’ve made everything from word-collage-pillows and yearbook ads to marketing brochures, business cards and memory books. Check out my Pinterest page to get an idea of some of the crazy items I’ve been asked to create. I love it when people come to me and say, “Beth, I’m not sure if you can do this, but I’d really like to see if you can….” Game on – try me!
My joy comes from connecting to you and helping you connect to your joy. Please browse my site and tell me what you think!
