The girl behind the lens
Hi I’m Nina the owner of Nina Bashaw Photography, wife of 16 years to an amazing man and mom to two spoiled fur babies. Although I have been professionally shooting weddings and portraits for eight years, my passion for photography started when I was a young child with a film camera. Even though I shoot digital now, film is what made me fall in love with photography and it created my appreciation for prints. My other passion is people! Although I was born and raised a southern girl, my husband and I have lived in various cities around the country and I've learned that the most fascinating part is always the people. I love capturing the special moments of families with children, teens preparing for graduating or couples getting married. Through whatever special moment in life you want to capture, my goal is to capture your best angles and most genuine smiles. I have spent years developing my skills as a portrait and wedding photographer. One thing I spent a great deal of time on is studying and perfecting the art of posing, it is what I am best at. I pride myself on being able to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera while I guide you through the posing process. My shooting and editing style is a combination of romantic and timeless with a fine art film aesthetic. I spend a great deal of time during the culling and editing process so that you can see the best version of yourself through my lens. I want you to love your images for a lifetime and tell your story though photos. You tell me your vision and I will work hard to bring it to life!
I accept a limited amount of weddings per year so I can give each and everyone of my clients an amazing and personalized experience. Although I am based out of Tampa, Florida I travel worldwide for weddings and elopements. If you are planning a local or a destination wedding for 2019 or 2020 I would love to be your photographer, contact me about my availability.
And if you are graduating class of 2019 or 2020 and are looking for a senior portrait photographer, please contact me for more information.

Favorite things :
When I'm not working I love to exercise, cook with my husband, go wine tasting, travel, spend time with my sisters, and cuddle with my three spoiled dogs.
If I wasn't a photographer I would be doing something creative. I would be an interior designer or something that gives me the chance to create something beautiful.
I love all these pretty and feminine, which means I'm a shoe lover and a nail polish hoarder.
I am completely and totally obsessed with plants. It's a new adventure of mine, but I have fallen in love with any variety of succulents! I think they are the coolest plants.
My life is very much dictated by food, it's what motivates my life and what a lot of daily decisions revolve around. Some of my favorite foods include beef tartare, sea food, and I love a good salad! I'm not a huge dessert person, not because I don't love it but because I try to limit the amount of sugar and dairy I eat. But you put a small dish of Créme brûlée in front of me I will devour it. I also call myself a half vegan because I try really hard not to eat dairy but I can throw down on some steak.
I love music! I am a huge believer that music is deeply connected with our emotions. Sometimes my husband and I will turn off the TV and play name that tune.
I am horrible at spelling. I have to ask Siri on a regular basis how to spell things. Thank goodness for technology and spell checker otherwise my blog posts would make no sense.
