Meet Benita

Hi, I'm Benita Rebekka Cloward. I am what's behind BRC and I'm excited that you're here.

While writing bios is definitely not my forte I'd love to share a few tidbits with you about me.

I LOVE to read. I love chocolate and popcorn. I like to play sports, be active,  and I like to garden. I am German. I am married to a soldier serving in the USAFR and we now live in north Atlanta, Georgia. We met back in '99 while he was stationed in Germany, married in 2001 and moved to the States together in 2002. I am a mother of 4 beautiful children who are the light of my life (even though they drive me up the wall every other day). Our three oldest kids are teenagers and we had a surprise baby, or as we like to refer to her #heavensent, November of '17. It's been so fun starting all over again. It really has and I cannot imagine life nor my clan without baby X.

I come from a huge family and when I say huge - I mean HUGE! I'm #13 of 14 children. All from the same Mama & Papa! I am fluent in both German and in English and my French is unfortunately pretty rusty. 

While I specialize in weddings, fine art women's portraiture, working with entrepreneurs on their brand shoots and headshots, I absolutely have a knack for HS seniors and editorials. I have been in business since '09 and have had the pleasure of documenting life for my clients all over the world: USA, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Switzerland, Italy... 

But best of all I have been able to run a successful business while moving across several states on my husband's military orders and help provide for my family thanks to all of my wonderful clients!

My work has been published in books, magazines and on numerous blogs.
