A freshly minted Granny, Yvonne’s career started when she answered an ad in the local newspaper: “WANTED: sports photographer for football season”.
A successful owner of a computer repair shop, she had just returned from a two week photography course in Maine. Photography was always her passion, but, it was set aside to get a college degree, look after a husband and kids (the usual story for can-‐do women)Yvonne is a prime example of “you’re never too old to be what you wanted to be when you grew up.” So, at 50, she attended a local high school football game and shot well over 1000 images just to make sure she had 5 stellar shots for the newspaper. She has since added shoots for other local high schools in her portfolio and every sport offered by the schools, including photographing cheerleaders and dance teams. Her list of clients is a Who’s Who of high school talent: Quarterbacks, Head Cheerleaders, Dance Captains and the kids of the head coaches.
She has been voted “Best Photographer” in the annual “best of businesses” for the past 7 seasons in a row. She also racked up 3 national senior model winners in the “SPA” (Senior Portrait Artists) competitions for the past two years.
