 A word from Yvette:

Yvette Waters Photography“Photography is my life. For the past 20 years I have enjoyed many opportunities to meet and work with a variety of fascinating people from all walks of life as a photographer in Orlando. Being able to make a living doing what I love is an absolute blessing.

The moments that make the biggest impact on me personally happen when I have the good fortune to work with organizations and groups who tirelessly devote their time, energy, and resources to the cause of helping others.

For me, being a photographer is more than just knowing how to take a picture. Anyone can take a picture. I am passionate about photography and the art of photographing. My job is not only to take amazing photographs, but to capture the heart and spirit of each person, place or thing that I am hired to shoot.

Braving Life Photography was created to  give back a fraction of what I have gained from watching what happens when we encourage, inspire, and honor one another’s journey through difficult times.

With this in mind, I am donating my photography services to offer complimentary private portrait sessions for cancer patients and survivors, as well as the transgender community in Orlando.

By partnering with various non-profit organizations in the area, I  hope to visually capture the courage and strength of the human spirit in our community.”
