Why'd You Start Pixie Light Photography?

February 03, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

Happy 4th Anniversary to us!

Pixie Light Photography was technically founded in January of 2015.  But before there was a Pixie Light Photography, Laura and I both had our own separate photography companies geared towards cosplay and conventions.  And that was fine and dandy, except that we mostly just photographed events and cosplay together. So in the Fall of 2014, Laura and I started talking about our future goals for our companies.  

We both came to the conclusion that we should just combine companies. There was much back and forth about possible names for our new company...A lot of which was funny and made us laugh, but didn't seem to convey our goals at the time.

In fact, our original mission statement was as follows:

"Pixie Light Photography is a cosplay and event photography company, with the goal of providing professional, customer-service driven photographic services with a focus on non-interference.  As female photographers, we are dismayed by the low representation of women photographers in the convention/cosplay photography field. Our goal is to offer photographic services with a feminine touch in an effort to make attendees and cosplayers as comfortable as possible."

Basically, we wanted to make photographic sessions comfortable, be professional, and represent the women photographers!

So, on December 4, 2014, we both made announcements on our old business pages!

There you have it.  It wasn't a clashing of the planets or anything super cosmic.  It was logical. And even though our original goal was to only do convention and cosplay photography, we think that our journey and what we have done has been even better and more special than what we had originally wanted.  During the past 4 years and into our 5th, we have met so many people through the Michigan Zombie community, participated in multiple charity events, met many people through the convention and cosplay scene, photographed and cheered on Flint City Derby Girls, hung out with musicians and photographed their shows, met Thai Buddhist monks and immersed in their religion and culture, stayed by the ropes during Michigan Wrestling Organization's shows, photographed weddings, met tons of photographers, maternity sessions, senior portraits, and have participated in so many other unique events that they're all hard to remember!  

Really, our journey has been super cool! We're both really looking forward to seeing what the future continues to bring for Pixie Light Photography and us!

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of our journey so far <3

PS - Those names that people came up with as possible names for Pixie Light Photography? Here are a few: Fox Tail Photos, Wild Cat, Pixie Wings, PengLens Studio, Photo Giraffey, Pixiecoat Photos, and Moon Fairy Photo.  We like Pixie Light Photography better :)
