I'm Evelyn Prosser, a storyteller, based in the San Francisco Bay area.
I chase sunsets, I love to dance. My guilty pleasures are caramel and one specific reality tv show that I won't disclose here, but I might reveal during our photo session ;) I watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S on repeat.
I grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and moved to the US over 10 years ago. Met my husband online and eloped 6 months later, crazy, I know! Became a mother in 2014 and my daughter is my source of inspiration and the reason I embarked on this journey.
Becoming a mom was the best and craziest thing that has ever happened to me. While I loved my baby girl, I hated my life. Struggling with post-partum depression; anxiety and desperately searching for my identity as my old self was buried in an avalanche of emotions and hormones since becoming a mother. Lack of sleep, lack or freedom, lack of "me time" ... You don't understand how much you need these things until you lose them.
While motherhood is a 24/7 job that never gives you a break, through photography I've been regaining my voice. I've been able to exercise my creativity and individualism that I so eagerly miss.
Photography is an influence from my dad. I grew up watching him document road trips, birthday parties, ordinary daily life... As soon as I was old enough to hold a camera, he started to trust me to take pictures. Another fascinating aspect, is the power to freeze time. I think it is very important to not only document, but print that image. My daughter loves to flip through pages of little photobooks of when she was a baby, and through that she gets to know my family in Brazil, and those who no longer are among us.
I love to document life. I won't always pose you. I will ask you to be yourself and interact with whomever is in the frame with you. I love faceless pictures, but but also love to capture emotions and of course I'll take that 'holiday card' shot.
I love in-home sessions. They show who you really are and we don't have to worry about the weather ;) Outdoor sessions are gorgeous and fun as well though. We can go to a park, to a beach, heck, to the grocery store, to an amusement park... Wherever your life happens.
I don't like to alter the image. I will fix small blemishes that are temporary and don't define you, but whatever constitutes you, it is what will be part of the image. I won't use photoshop to make you look different from who you are. I capture life as it happens, raw emotions, authentic moments. I capture timeless moments that you will never get tired of looking at.
If this sounds like a fun experience, then lets go capture and freeze these moments that you will treasure forever!
Everness in archaic English, means perpetuity, which is defined as something that lasts forever. As a bonus, it also has the first three letters of my name, so the meaning, plus the sound and visual brings us to the essence of this brand. Moments, captured by me, to last forever!
