Veronica O'Brien is a Santa Cruz local who studied photography and sociology at Cabrillo College. She is pursuing a degree in Psychology to work with children. Veronica loves people, is active, and is full of personality. The girl never stops laughing- literally! She decided to take on photography when her daughter was three months old when she went to go get portraits done at a home studio. That day her outlook on photos changed forever. It took six hours, ten diaper changes, lots of groans from dad, and a bunch of sweat just to finish the photo session and get less than ten good photos of her little daughter, but she still has and treasures those very same photos today. It was in that moment after the shoot that she realized just how important those very photos were and that she wanted every single family on earth to be able to have them too.
