My Story

Ever since I was little I loved photography + cameras. At family events I used to take my grandma’s Polaroid + run around taking pictures.

Yes they were very flattering - double chins + toes galore. I mean, for being a two year old, I was a pro, haha. Taking photos was so cool to me because cameras gave you the power to freeze time.

That image that was captured could be saved forever. I was amazed.

As I grew up, I had plenty of hobbies. Well, sort of.

Played the guitar for about two weeks, then quit. Tried dance, then quit. I cheered for a while too, then quit. Do you see a pattern? I couldn’t find my thing, my niche. It was bad + an expensive experimental point in my life - for my parents. Sorry Mom + Dad.

When I got into middle school, I decided to join yearbook. It didn’t cost my parents anything but a $15 activity fee. Yay for them! I actually enjoyed it. Being on the high school yearbook staff meant that you got to use a DSLR, aka “what the pros use” + that was exciting. One day they needed someone to take pictures of a soccer game at an away school so, I volunteered. As the timid introvert of a sophomore I was, it was quite

Being on the high school yearbook staff meant that you got to use a DSLR, aka “what the pros use” + that was exciting. One day they needed someone to take pictures of a soccer game at an away school, so I volunteered. As the timid introvert of a sophomore I was, it was quite nerve-wracking. I did it. When I got home, I immediately started to look through the images. My mom was with me + told me how good they were. Was there a mom-bias? Probably. I decided then to take pictures of my friends + see how that went. I loved it. Everyone was telling me how I could capture people’s personalities. That's when BeatrixLin Photography was born.

For the first year and a half, I only had six paid shoots.

Not too bad for a sophomore/junior in high school. When my senior year came along, I was jam packed with shoots. I was doing about four a day. It was absolutely crazy!

I would like to say it was because of those 6 shoots I improved so much but it was because people believed in me. You believed in me. My peers + their parents invested in me. I cannot explain how much love and support I got from my friends + family. I could not be where I am today without them.

I am so grateful every time I get an inquiry because that means one more person believes in me. You all don’t understand how much I appreciate you + that’s why I want to give all my clients the best experience I possibly can because you deserve it!
