Hello, my name is Vanessa and I am the proud owner of Vanessa Hicks Photography! I am a 30 year old Navy Veteran, military spouse, mother to my amazing 2 daughters, a wonderful step daughter
, and a lover of running and EVERYTHING Disney! I grew up in Hawaii until I was 13 years old, which is where my love for the beach comes from. Everything about the beach and ocean relaxes me- the smell, the calmness, and the fact that with each new wave, it’s like the sand is wiped clean for a moment, and all is right in the world!
Photography is so much more that a passion for me. While I grew up in paradise, my childhood was anything but. My parents were too busy doing other things instead of documenting our lives, and when my father passed away several years ago, I was only left with a handful of pictures. So when my daughters were born, was when I first started documenting and truly enjoying photography.
It wasn’t until one day I walked into my corporate job, a week before my husband was set to deploy for a year, and was told that my department was being eliminated, that I decided to take on photography full time. I am so much happier now! I love capturing families and weddings. I get to help others do what I wish I had growing up, documenting their legacy. I live by the motto that tomorrow is not promised to anyone, so NOW is the time to document your memories! I truly believe that my clients see that passion and drive in me with every single shoot I do!
