Hello, there! Thanks so much for visiting my website! Let me start off by sharing a little bit about myself ☺
My name is Quinn, & I'm the owner of QB Photography! I am a 24 year old, born & raised here in the gorgeous state of Alaska, which is what initially sparked my interest in photography. I remember getting my first camera when I was 9 years old & I took photos of everything around me. Eventually, that led me to begin my journey in professional photography, specifically portrait photography. During my senior year of high school, I got the wonderful opportunity to be an intern with Gutierrez Photography in Eagle River, AK. Through them, I gained invaluable experience about cameras, lighting, posing, image editing, and so much more! I have also had the blessing to be able to work with several local photographers on weddings and personal collaborations.
Seven years later, I now consider myself a Professional Portrait & Wedding Photographer based in Eagle River, Alaska. My areas of expertise include: individual portraits, boudoir, high school senior portraits, couples & families, engagements, weddings & elopements, & creative photography. I also enjoy photographing maternity, births, newborns, & probably anything else you can think of that involves people in front of the camera! For me, one of the most fulfilling feelings in the world is being able to capture a photo of someone or something that evokes emotion in the viewer, especially the feeling of being able to make someone smile because I captured a moment that they believe truly reflects who they are or what is meaningful to them.
When I am not out photographing or secluding myself at home to edit images, I spend much of my free time volunteering as a Firefighter & EMT, something I have been passionate about since I was in high school. I graduated from Chugiak High School in 2017, & later went on to receive my Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Spanish Language from the University of Alaska, Anchorage in 2019. I am bilingual in English & Spanish, both of which I have been speaking since childhood. I really love animals... 10+ terrariums full of frogs & geckos worth, & an aquarium of fish, frogs, shrimp, & snails. I also have three Miniature Australian Shepherds that own my heart. I definitely don't have a problem, shhh!
Some other things I enjoy outside of photography include pottery, cooking, hiking & camping, traveling, spending time with family & friends, & adventuring around my home state of Alaska. I am unsure of what my future holds, but I'm mostly just trying to make sure I enjoy myself along the way.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! ☺
