STEVI BEAN PHOTOGraphy
I am a mom of two beautiful boys, and a wife of a retired veteran of the USMC. I graduated high school from Rayne High and majored in history in college. I've traveled a little with plans to travel more. I am influenced most by my surroundings and the individuals I have meet along the way. I love anything that reminds me of Miami, The Tropics, Disney, Harry Potter or Cajun Culture.
My mantra is "Stay Beautiful". I am not speaking of outward beauty. I believe in being beautiful humans. Be kind. Be forgiving. Show grace. I feel like when someone has a sincere soul, they are the most beautiful they ever could be.
Photography is more than my career. It is a way for me to give a little to each and every client. Memories are our most valuable possession. A quote from a favorite movie of mine Kodachrome best explains why I do what I do.
"We're all so frightened by time, the way it moves on and the way things disappear. That's why we're photographers. We're preservationists by nature. We take pictures to stop time, to commit moments to eternity. Human nature made tangible. "
