When I was younger, my dream was to work as a newspaper photographer. In 2011, after graduating from Western Kentucky University with a photojournalism degree, I landed my dream job at The Roanoke Times in Virginia, where I spent my days documenting the lives of the people who lived in the community that I fell in love with.
But after several years of school and work, I found I was missing my family more and more. And I began to realize that I could take my camera anywhere. So my husband and I moved back to where I grew up…sunny South Florida!
Side note… My husband, Ryan Stone, is also a photographer…we met in the photo program at WKU. This business started under the name “Ryan & Becca Photography” several years ago, since we photographed everything together. But as Ryan becomes busier and busier freelancing for clients including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Venice Magazine and more, it’s time for a new name.
Don’t worry…Ryan has not been kicked out! He will still be available to assist from time-to-time.
But lifestyle photography…photographing people and moments, is my true love.

(By the way...The "B" in "Rebecca B. Photography" comes from my maiden name, Barnett.)
