Hello there! I’m Deb Schwedhelm — photographer, educator, former military nurse, and adventure seeker. After 25 years of moving every 2-3 years with the military, my family has finally settled in Williamsburg, Virginia (at least until the baby graduates high school in 2023). While I have loved photography as long as I can remember, it wasn’t until I left the Air Force that I purchased my first DSLR and began to teach myself photography. On year later, in 2006, I launched Deb Schwedhelm Photography and never looked back. I started out in child/family commissioned portraiture and in 2012, I ventured into the realm of fine art photography. I’m incredibly grateful to have received a number of photography awards, had my fine art prints purchased by art collectors, and had photographs selected for permanent art collections. What inspires me? All of it — life’s every day. With photography, I believe that each of us is on our own unique journey; we just need to embrace and celebrate our own individual photographic path. I strongly believe in community and I’m so thankful to be here.
