Felicia Sealey, the owner of Blue Marie Photography located in South Texas, specializes in fashion and beauty photography. She is a graduate from the Art Institute of San Antonio with a BFA in photography and was awarded Best Photography Student 2018. As a professional photographer for over four year, she has worked with many different clients from designers, hairstylists and makeup artists to families, local organizations, and small businesses. As a young business owner it is important for her to make strong connections with her subjects and clients which can be seen in her work. Felicia's ultimate goal is to create unique work for each of her clients and capture moments that will last a lifetime.
I love connecting with people more than anything else. I always make an effort to bring my subjects out of their shell, capture real emotions, and show their true personalities. One thing I always think about is how intimate photographing someone can be and if I can get my subject to let themselves be open and vulnerable with me then I believe I have done my job. Capturing an image of someone is one thing, but capturing a connection between them and myself is something that is truly special. One of the greatest compliments I have received was from one of my toughest instructors while I was in school - he said I really know how to get my subjects to connect with the lens. That is something I will hold close to me through my entire career.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many types of shoots like maternity, couples, families, graduates, bridal, weddings, and more. Whenever I am working with a new client I always try to make them feel special by creating one of a kind images that incorporate things that are special to them. No two images in my portfolio are the same, so when someone hires me they know they will be receiving truly special images.

A fun fact about this photographer
One thing I always pay special attention to in my work is the hands! For some reason I have a strange fascination for hands and if I can coach a model to really make their hands look beautiful like a painting then I get so excited.
