Friday Photoshare – Introducing Nunez Photography!

Hello and welcome to another Friday Photoshare! I typically take this time to discuss a recent self portrait, but I’ve decided to do something different today. I’m officially introducing Nunez Photography! I wrote some about our new photography business on Tuesday, but that was kind of a long post and filled with other things! So here’s the official announcement – my husband and I are building a photography business! We’re currently focusing on lifestyle family portraits, and we’re also looking to build a “contemporary glamour” portfolio. Nunez Photography has its own website and can be found at www.aenunezphotography.com.

Unlike many photographers who’ve gone the purely digital route, we’re focusing on creating printed images. All too often, digital photos are never printed and then are lost in a hard drive crash or server failure. I’ve heard it said that more images are taken each day than during the first 100 years of photography as a medium, but where will most of these new images be in 50 years? 100? 200? I’m sure only a relative handful will still exist. That’s why we believe in printing photos. We put a lot of effort into sourcing beautiful, handmade folio boxes and finding a professional printer with papers and inks we love. We recently had the pleasure of photographing a family who’d been putting off portraits for years. It sounds silly, but when I unpacked their prints from the lab, I almost cried because they are so lovely and I know the family will treasure them for years.

Each folio box is 14″x11″ and holds 20 matted prints, and the prints are on a deep matte, archival paper.

Probably the most fun thing about the way we’ve structured our business is the “photo reveal.” We have one basic sitting fee for the actual photography session and the client is not locked into buying any images. After we have everything ready, we have a “reveal” where clients get to see and hold their images, make their selections, and head home with their treasures that same day. All prints also come with the digital version of each image purchased, so clients have a backup and the option to share online. It is so rewarding to show people their photos in person! It’s difficult to say what’s more rewarding; Getting to see the look on a mom’s face when you show her a sweet image like this of her baby girl:

Or her daughter and husband:

Or showing a woman who just told you she ‘has no figure’ and believes she doesn’t photograph well just how beautiful she is:

We are so excited about creating this rewarding business together! If you’re living on Oahu or planning a vacation (I know a couple of my Etsy teammates have been here before!), please get in touch. We’d love to show you just how amazing you truly are.

      Thank you! The boxes and mats are from an Etsy seller. =)

    Beautiful photos Natasha! Good luck to you and Angel in your new business! You both have a fabulous eye for photos. I wish you much success!

      Thank you! Honestly, it’s a whole lot of practice and hard work. We spend most of our time on something to do with photography, whether it’s taking photos, practicing posing, or watching classes. If you ever come back to Hawaii, please let us know so we can get photos of you!

    I wish you and your husband all the best with your new business! I think it’s so fantastic you’re focusing on creating such beautiful printed images for your clients. It shocks and saddens me how many people I know who have NEVER printed a candid photo of their kids, much less paid for professional prints. Having even a handful of printed images you love is so important!

    • Natashalh February 4, 2017, 08:15

      Thank you so much! And, yes, far too many people don’t have printed photos and there’s something so special about holding a print. We’re using this beautiful Fuji deep matte paper that should last for a really long time, too, so the images can become generational treasures.

    these photos are gorgeous!

    • Natashalh February 4, 2017, 08:16

      Thank you!! You travel – come to Hawaii so we can get lovely photos of you and your family, too. =)

    I could not agree with you more about the importance of printed photos versus digital ones. It’s sort of like comparing handwritten or printed letters to email . . . who will ever look at the latter 20 or 30 years from now. The presentation of your photos is wonderful!

    • Natashalh February 5, 2017, 18:35

      Thank you!!

      I hadn’t thought about it, but your letters/email comparison is spot on.

  • Pamela Baker February 6, 2017, 09:14

    What a wonderful venture – combining your love and art of Photography into a full time business; being able to capture those memories and seeing the faces of those you just photographed! Your off to a great start – beautiful works of art!

    Congratulations to you both on your exciting new business venture! That is awesome! The photos shown are stunning! Your site looks very professional. Wish you could come over and take a portrait of me and Sammy 🙂

      Thank you!!

      That would be so lovely! We’ve photographed three couples with dogs, but we haven’t had any cats yet. We’ll let you know if we ever make it over there.

  • Julie February 13, 2017, 21:22

    Congrats!! I wish you two all the success!! I wish we lived in the same place…. If I’m ever going to be in your area, I will definitely want to do this!

    • Natashalh February 14, 2017, 07:16

      It would be a joy to photograph you! Please do let me know if you’re ever on this set of islands.
