My name is Betsy Snyder, owner of simply time photography in Corning, New York. I live in NY but LOVE to travel and specialize in FAMILIES & WOMEN including BRIDES. I do travel for Family Vacation Photography (if interested in this please specify when you email me). What is simply time photography all about? It is a boutique photography company designed to capture your story! What does this mean for you? It means your photo session will be designed to be unique to who you are! If you are looking for a quick photo session with all your images on a disk, then I am probably not the photographer for you. I want to capture the story of my clients, and give you beautiful artwork to display on your walls & albums to proudly display on your coffee table. I started offering videos to clients as part of the story telling and it really captures the heart of each story in a personal way. I have yet to create one that hasn’t made me cry! I’m full of energy and I love to laugh and I promise that you will have a good time while being photographed! I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful girls. In 2009, I had a son named Chanse, that was born at 20 weeks and took his last breath in my arms. This was the turning point for me, career-wise; I established a lifestyle management company called ‘Simply Time’. Although I enjoy my work, I wanted to pursue my dream of photography, thus began ‘simply time photography’.
Thankfully, I have many photos of Chanse which are very precious to us as a family. My sister and her husband wrote a song in memory of him called, “Fleeting as a Feather” which can be found on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rK90B02i394
Each time our family finds a feather it is a simple but cherished reminder of our dear son and brother. A close friend once told me, ” Your son’s death will always be a part of you but don’t let it define who you are”. Because of this experience, I am willing to donate my photography services to any family that might find themselves in a situation where their child’s life might be short on this earth. It is a hard situation to be in, but having photos to look back at is a great way to get through the grieving process.
I have a small studio in my home where I do more formal photos for corporate headshots (can also do on location), boudoir and beauty sessions. Family sessions I typically do “on location” meaning you choose a location, but I do about 50% of these on my premises. I love to photograph women and have them look at their photo and love themselves, just as everyone in their lives loves them and sees them!
I recently added “beautiful me” shoots for women & girls. These are a really FUN “girls day out” with professional hair and makeup & a personal styled shoot in my studio or at a boutique.
