Our Mission

“In portrait photography I have one job, to make you, my client, look your absolute best. For this, I need you to be relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. Through a mixture of direct and indirect coaching, a sense of humor, and sometimes just being plain silly, I help you become more comfortable so your true self shines through. I never leave you wondering what to do next because I will teach you the poses and looks that work best. It’s by working together, as a team, that we will create portraits that show your confidence and personality. And in the process, we’ll have an enjoyable, fun photo shoot that you will remember forever.” ~Steven

  • Ellen DEllen DSolo portrait photography

    I love working with Steven Bourelle. He is fun, energetic and he puts time and thought into his photo shoots. He has a good eye for what he wants, but is always flexible for the off the cuff ideas sometimes thrown at him by his clients. I have many lovely photos from Steven, including one of my sets of headshots. I most certainly would work with him again.

  • Martha V.Martha V.Professional Headshots

    Working with Steven was amazing. Not only was he very professional, but very patient with some of the nursing students. We used him for our nursing pictures and honestly couldn't have gotten a better person for the job.

    I was merely "the watcher" while Celeste got her photos taken for promotional things but really thought you did an amazing job of changing the focus of the photos while being seemingly low-key in doing it. I will definitely keep you in my go-to file for photography.

  • Nicole H.Nicole H.Professional Headshots

    Steven has been fantastic from our first interaction. He is very professional, coming to my home with all of the equipment needed (background, multiple lights with shades, professional camera), and a positive attitude! He was directive when needed, and also listened to what I wanted from the shoot as well. Overall-EXTREMELY impressed with his professional skills and kind personality-would highly recommend and will refer people to him as often as possible!

We highly recommend Bourelle Photography.
