About the Barbarazzi
Hi, I’m Barbara of Santa Barbara! I am a photographer and I focus on portraits, weddings, pinup & creative productions. I specialize in emotional images that have the power to whisk you back to a moment in time, and bring a tear to your eye. It is my composition and knack for timing that allows me to capture the moments, but ultimately it is my heart and soul-seeing ability that gives me ‘the eye’ for photography. I savour life’s moments from everyday to once in a lifetime, and it is truly my pleasure and honor to capture the beauty of these occasions. My talent and gift is giving you access to these moments, joys and treasures, yours to keep forever.
My favorite images are those full of expression with a bright and clean yet airy feel to them. Getting in my lens is fun, you’ll be comfortable, and your smiles will be real! I also like to explore the art of photography and stretch my limits. I am constantly learning and growing. I enjoy fine art, editorial, and creative projects that put my production skills to good use. If you have a vision, I can arrange props, location, costuming and the whole schabang! I’m blessed with talented friends who help me make photographic art, and I’m so amazed at the feats we have pulled off! I love and crave novelty, that’s why photography feeds my soul, each shoot is new to me!
In high school my friends called me ‘The Barbarazzi’ because I carried around a film camera everywhere I went, before people did that sort of thing! I chose this as my business name because it speaks to my outgoing and slightly nutty personality, my willingness to get in a tight spot to get the shot, and my true nature as someone who is always just about to snap (a photo). I would love to be part of your entourage and give you the star treatment!
