ABOUT BETTINA BATTAGLIA
BASED IN AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS
MY STORY / MY PROMISE
This is me, Bettina Battaglia, passionate about creating images that make your heart sing. The kind of singing that makes you want to hang the enlarged prints on your walls, change immediately all your profile pictures of your facebook, Instagram and Linkedin account. The kind of singing that makes you so excited to share your photos with everybody you love. I will do everything in my power to awaken this feelings in you!
My mission is to create photographs that make you fall in love with yourself. My style is classic, and my editing results in the most natural looking final images.
My vision for photography is to empower the everyday women by showing them how beautiful they are.
We as women are still caught in the vision of society of how we should look like, behave or in general be. We get lost in all of that and forget about who we truly are. A masterpiece. Period.
We search for all the 'excuses' for not existing in photographs.
“I’m not photogenic.”
“I’m not pretty enough.”
"Just photos of the kids, please. I never look good on pictures."
“I just need to lose x amount of weight.”
Trust me I know, I had all the same excuses. I am here to tell you that you are ENOUGH! You are so beautiful! No more excuses, step out of your comfort zone. Celebrate who you are right now!
One of my superpowers is it to make you feel comfortable in front of my camera. I've got you!
During the photo session I always feel the moment when I get access to your soul... This is the moment when all the magic happens, and I get the absolute honor to capture your true essence.
If you chose me as your photographer, I promise to deliver the most beautiful photographs you have seen of yourself!
I hope you take the time to look through my website, visit me on Instagram and facebook, or drop me a message. I would love to hear from you so we can talk about how you’ve always dreamed of being photographed!
