Actually my maiden name is Olivares, but eh I guess Davila isn't that bad. ha! (kidding husband) I am the owner/photographer of my company Nathalie Davila Photography + Film. I figured I would post a little blog about myself , just so my clients could get to know me a little better. I believe to carry out a well established business people need to know who you truly are. This is what this post is about, to know who I am & why I love doing what i do.
I picked up my first camera about 5 years ago. I was living with my parents at the time (I am only 26!) and my dad brought home a camera because he wanted to start a photography business. Well little did we know that I was going to be the one that actually picked up interest in photography. (Thanks daddy!) I started to offer free photoshoots & did the whole rookie "free photo shoots to build up my portfolio" thing. My first session I only charged $65 and it took 4 HOURS! haha yup, that was me! I started to learn more and more and started to take an interest in doing weddings. I love photographing weddings, and outdoor sessions. Honestly I dont have a "specific" thing that I enjoy doing the most, but I can say that I love photographing love. Whether its marriage love, family love, newborn love , sibling love ANY LOVE! I take pride in my work & I love my job! Seriously I get to capture such peculiar events in peoples lives, its a privilege for me to be able to do that.
What else? I am married to my bestfriend for 4 years & have 4 beautiful children. I love love love being LDS (mormon) yes Its a huge part of my life & serving the lord is huge in our life as well. I love having family time & doing things as a family. We have different variety in sports at my home, Carlos loves soccer , Cali loves basketball , Giovanni well he shows interest in soccer and baseball & Camila (my princess) is just enjoying being held by me all the time! argh! I LOVE basketball but enjoy watching soccer & well my husband is a soccer fanatic! We are an outdoor family & love going camping and doing things outsides. I am a stay at home mom & holy cow did I invisioned being a stay at home mom completely different. Yes it is the MOST rewarding job, however I can honestly say it is the HARDEST job anyone can have. (I have worked for 10 years and have been a SAHM for almost 2 years). I wouldn't change it for anything in this world though! I love and have a passion for working out (no I AM NOT THE FITTEST!) but I love the whole gym, running outside type of thing! Its my actual "ME" time. Yes moms, we all need "me time".
I hope this helps a little to show you who I am & how I came to love photography! :) Now back to cleaning & editing haha
have a good weekend
