Back in college when I refused to pick up a digital camera. It wasn’t until my senior year of college I decided to give digital a shot. I live for the grain though! 🤤 I would love to get back into the darkroom again. Maybe one day. 🤞

Camilla made her debut a whole 6 weeks early. Her mom originally booked a maternity session with me, but we had to change it to newborn since the little lady came early! She was a little over 8 weeks in these photos, but still so tiny. Thankfully she’s doing great and is a healthy, happy, growing baby! @ Woodbridge, Virginia

Look at this beauty... one of the first cameras I ever shot with. I started shooting film photography at the age of 14. I developed my own film and my own prints. (By the way, when you develop your own film you have to load it in the dark, so you're basically blind.)

I fell in love with photography SO much I went to art school in Boston (with a scholarship due to my bad ass portfolio) and received my BFA. Recently it's like every one and their cousin thinks they're photographers. I won't lie; it really bothers me. Not because people can't decide they want to try something new, but because they're trying to make a BUSINESS out of something they aren't going to take the time to TRULY learn or understand.

More than 300 million photos are uploaded to Facebook each day and 27,800 to Instagram PER minute. We are basically sharing nearly 2 billion images every day.

Sadly, the biggest problem isn’t all the people cropping up deciding to be photographers. It’s the people who don’t recognize bad photography. And that isn’t their fault! They see something like “10 newborn photos for $50!” 🤔 If you’re paying CHEAP, you’re getting cheap. Point blank. I’m not trying to sound harsh or biased, but it’s the truth, and the truth hurts sometimes.

People aren’t thinking about photography anymore as an art. They’re thinking about instant gratification. Sure, digital cameras can do the work when it comes to lighting, but that’s it. The person behind the camera is responsible for EVERY THING else. For me it’s about the process of finding the best light, the best angle, all while creating a timeless moment that my clients and their loved ones can cherish forever. That’s the difference between a person with a camera and a photographer.

Rant. Over.

The first partially successful photograph of a camera image was made in approximately 1816 by Nicéphore Niépce, using a very small camera of his own making and a piece of paper coated with silver chloride, which darkened where it was exposed to light.

Lucky for you, cameras have come a long way since then and my photos are always 100% successful and last a lifetime.

Our Story

Hello! Thank you for taking a moment out of your day to check out my work.

My name is Olivia Beavers and I have been a photographer since I was in middle school; this is where my passion for photography truly emerged. From the moment I picked up the camera, smelled the chemicals while developing, and fine tuning my prints, I fell in love with the entire process of creating an image. This passion carried me through high school where I finally made the decision to attend art school.

I graduated from the Museum School of Fine Arts in affiliation with Tufts University in Boston, where I received a BFA. My love for film continued and I developed new passions along the way such as large format photography, painting, sculpture, drawing, installation work ... and yes, I even picked up a digital camera my last year of college!

What sets me apart from everyone else? I am not a “fad” photographer delivering the latest trend. Although my editing style may change over time, the fundamentals of what I do remain the same: deliver a timeless moment, as true to life as possible, that will never go out of style - a moment you can hold onto forever. What does this mean for you as my client: I am a natural light photographer and I don’t do studio set-ups with props. Are those types of photos beautiful? Of course, but they’re just not me. I want to give you something that you can look back on 10, 20, 50 years from now and not say, “well, that was just the style back then!” with a chuckle. These photos will last you a lifetime. Let me capture your most precious moments!
