Missy Benton Photography

Wife. Mom of three. Former science teacher. Discovering I have a passion for photography.

I'm not exactly sure when or why, but some time ago my sister and I started holding our hands up to our eye and pretending to snap a picture whenever we were in a moment that we wanted to remember forever. As more time passed and the older I got, I realized it's easier said than done. This is when I decided to invest in a good camera and learn how to beautifully capture the moments I want to remember. There's so much beauty in our day to day lives.  

It was from this initial personal love of photography that my photography business organically grew. Friends started to ask me to take family pictures, senior portraits, and newborn pictures and then friends of friends started contacting me. While I love all types of photography, over the last several years I've discovered my true passion is senior portraits. Before I had kids I was a high school biology teacher. As a senior portrait photographer, I love being able to once again connect with young adults at such an important phase of life. 

I've been told time and time again that my senior sessions are so relaxed and fun that even the most photo reluctant seniors end up enjoying it. That's my goal for every session. Please contact me if that's what you're looking for in your personal senior portrait session!
