Meet Reba Saldanha of RebaPhoto in Andover

Today we’d like to introduce you to Reba Saldanha.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Reba. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I majored in journalism at Boston University. I also minored in Spanish and did a one-semester internship at a newspaper in Ecuador. After graduating, I worked for about 10 years as a staff photographer at the Lynn (MA) Daily Item. When I moved further away from Lynn, I made the transition from full-time newspaper work to starting my own photography business, RebaPhoto (www.rebaphoto.com).

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Fortunately, raising young children for the last several years has meant that I have been able to work from home while not feeling pressure to grow the business too rapidly. It’s been a fun and rewarding challenge creating a business from scratch and expanding into new branches of the photography world.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the RebaPhoto story. Tell us more about the business.
RebaPhoto specializes in corporate and wedding photography as well as family portraits. During my time at the Lynn Daily Item and in my travels around the world, I have interacted frequently with people from a wide range of backgrounds, which makes me comfortable in most any situation. This contributes to RebaPhoto being able to offer a unique experience for clients that accentuates the defining personal and cultural characteristics that should be captured and celebrated.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I’ve been lucky to have made many connections from growing up in the area and attending college in Boston that have definitely been helpful for me when starting and promoting the business.
