Welcome to Vassalle's Photography. I am Mindy the main photographer behind Vassalle's photography. However my husband and family share a part in our photography adventure and that's why we are Vassalle's Photography.
I am a family oriented mom and wife who spends every waking moment that I can with my family. I value family and teaching my children (now teens) how to grow, learn, and become little adults.
We strive to offer the best portrait experience using family values and our caring hearts. We love our community here in Citrus County Florida and the greater Tampa Bay Area.
Our journey started with photography in 2008 when I (Mindy) bought my first digital SLR camera. I then learned how to shoot in Manuel and went on from there growing and learning about the business side of photography. I realized I needed a website to showcase my work for potential clients to see. So I started building a website. From there I grew and became much more of just a photographer.
Next, In 2010 I had to learn how to use Photoshop to edit my photos and oh my word it took months for me to finally wrap my head around it. In fact, at one point I gave up. Then I started to learn how to make my own logo, print material like business cards, flyers, and pricing guides. And now today that's what leads me to help high school seniors in graduation announcements.
So in 2012, I decided to go to graphic design school. I knew I wanted to be a graphic designer for photographers in addition to being a photographer. All assignments and projects I did were all related to the photography industry. My instructors were impressed with me having a nitch already and my Photoshop skills.
In 2013 my family had the opportunity to move to Florida. I absolutely love living here in Florida and I am so very thankful, as I was born and raised in Ohio where the weather isn’t as friendly. I love the beautiful weather here. My family spends a lot of time outdoors as we love the beach and going to the springs, state parks, and amusement parks.
I am a mom, wife, grandmother and pet lover. I have four children ages 13, 15, 25, and 26. The older two are still in Ohio and are married with children. My younger two children are the teens who help assist me in sessions as well as social media.
On February 21st, 2017 I opened up my graphic design/web design sister company called Brand Me Gorgeous. I want to help creative business owners present their brand in a gorgeous way. I offer assistance by creating logos, business marketing materials and branded photography.

I started using Showit (A website company for Photographers) in 2013 and I set a goal for myself to work with them.
