Hi I'm Malinda!
A little over two years ago I was lost. Like many times we all lose ourselves in life and I had no idea where my life was going or what to do next. I was a new mother, a college student, and completely unsure of everything I ever thought I knew. While my passions and career goals changed continuously over the course of the next few years, one thing remained, my creative curiosity.
I originally picked up a professional camera for the first time to capture the precious moments of having a child. But over time as my daughter grew, my creativity and curiosity grew with her, sparking a passion I never knew existed. I loved having the ability to capture precious moments otherwise lost in a distant memory.
When I tried to obtain professional family pictures for myself, the price tag absolutely astounded me. Between the down payment, the session, the prints and all hidden costs in-between, I would have to spend $400 for 15 pictures....and I paid it.
After that I realized that there has to be something else. There has to be affordable photographers with a professional background that can help the average family obtain pictures of their lives without costing them an entire weeks worth of work.
So I did my research, I learned, I watched, I used my talents, I tapped into my marketing background and I started Natural You Photography.
With two degrees, countless workshops attended, books read, a portfolio built and a whole lot of faith.....Natural You came to life.
I started this as a way to make other's dreams a reality, and I want to help yours come true too.
To produce amazing pictures that capture all of life's beautiful moments, at an affordable price.
