About me

    Welcome! My name is Renee Blanchard and I am a Christian, Wife, Mother, Pastor and Photographer. I love creativity and people and am blessed to be able to combine these two loves with Sozo Studios.

    I offer three main photography types to my clients: Fine Art Portraiture, Business Headshots and Commercial. 

    My Fine Art Portrait sessions range from infant to elderly and focus on creating a creative portrait that displays your personality and style best. The goal is not to show MY style but to highlight who YOU are. We shoot these both outdoors in natural light and with strobes and in our professional studio. Whether it is for your senior year of high school or maybe you just are feeling good and want to do a personal portrait session, every person deserves to be captured in portrait!

    Business Headshots are incredibly important to portraying who you are to clients. My business headshots range from a basic headshot to a full business profile showing where you work, you in action in your job etc. Set up a free consultation to discuss how you'd like to communicate who you are through your updated headshot!

    Commercial work is one of my favorite things to do. I've shot everything from 80 foot conveyor belts to tiny micro silicone valves to super reflective jewelry. It's a challenge that I enjoy and always readily take on. If you have a commercial product that you need photographed, contact me to discuss our custom commercial pricing. 

    We strive to produce a quality product that you will be happy with for many years.
