Hi there! My name is Vivien and I am a documentary photographer in the Manchester, CT area. I specialize in maternity, birth, newborn, and family photography. I am married to an amazing man and together we have three beautiful children, whom we homeschool.
In my camera bag, I have a Nikon D750 with a Sigma 35mm Art lens. As my backup, I have my trusty Nikon D7100 and an awesome ultra wide angle lens that I bought mainly for street photography- the Tokina 11-16mm.
I feel very honored and excited to be this week’s guest judge on the Dear Photographer Facebook page. Can’t wait to see all your amazing submissions!
