Alexis Mattingly Portraits
Alexis is a member of the amazing makeup artist team that I work with for my clients, The Beauty Patrol. She has been with me on several of my recent portrait sessions and mentioned that she might like to experience a session herself. She has an amazing energy and I was excited to work photograph her. After her session, she was kind enough to write what the experience was like for her.

I met Ben through my coworker, Pamela Butler of The Beauty Patrol, when we worked together on my first photography gig. I was beyond ecstatic. Little did I know just a little over a year later I would be sitting in front of his camera getting my own images taken.
When I first arrived we had gone over the basics; what I brought to the session, how I want to be photographed and what I want to steer away from. We both asked lots of questions which led me to decide on light and delicate pictures and we had chosen attire accordingly from there.
I think just about anyone can agree with me that the concept of getting your picture taken is a bit awkward feeling, but Ben knows exactly how to get you to feel confidence within yourself. He always captures each individual in their own unique way – he’s also quite funny which always helps get amazing natural images!
Ben isn’t just someone who pushes a button to make the next dollar. He truly adores what he does and wants to make his client feel like a million bucks – to which I can personally say he succeeded at with myself.
The images taken of me are adored by my loved ones now and someday appreciated by my children. I can’t thank Ben enough for the joy he has made me feel and for what he does for the community.
