We had the good fortune of connecting with Rose Scoggins and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Rose, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Photography has been their for me in the toughest of times, it’s introduced me to amazing people, it challenges my creativity, and overall it just makes me so happy! With all the negativity that’s been produced this year I wanted to bring joy for myself and share positivity to others

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
In the summer of 2009, I was excited for my first real job working at a photography studio called Photo Depot. On my first day my manager placed a Canon camera in my hand, smirked, and led me to the studio. She stood there, watching me shake with nerves, as I prepped the customer and said ,“One… two… three…” about thirty times for a client that just needed ONE passport photo. I couldn’t shake the exciting feelings that I had when I held the camera, heard it click, and saw the lights flash for the first time. I quickly realized that every picture taken had a narrative that needed to be told, even with a simple passport photo. I was inspired by the people in front of my lens that not only wanted their story to be heard but wanted it to be seen. I started Pixel Perfect Rose when I was in college and started out as a portrait photographer emphasizing in graduation pictures. When I moved to Dallas and started my life in the city my equipment was stolen and my business was no more. 2020 was the year I wanted to invest in myself and start my photography business up again. What sets me apart from other photographers is that I will not only provide you with a fun and positive experience but I will direct and guide you through the whole process so you can get amazing images that you will treasure forever.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’m very lucky to have so many people in my life that has been nothing but supportive to my photography journey it’s hard to narrow it down to just one person but I am extremely grateful for my mom. She has not only instilled amazing work ethic in me but taught me how to always stay positive and not to dwell on negativity.
