Bonniejean Alford Hinde, B.S., M.A., M.A., A.B.D.
Founder and CEO/Communications Consultant
Bonniejean has been capturing special moments for over a decade. When talking with friends and co-workers it became clear that the world of portrait photography seemed to lack a certain personality. As a trained visual Sociologist, Bonniejean wants to capture the special moments of life at an affordable price, but still in a creative and natural manner. What began was Alford Enterprises, a company dedicated to meeting people’s photographic needs at an affordable price.
Very quickly, Bonniejean realized that her skills offered great potential and decided to expand Alford Enterprises into the specialty communications firm that it was meant to be, a place to provide clients with all their communication needs met at an affordable cost. To accomplish this task, she returned to graduate school earning a second master's degree in Communication, focus in Media and Public Relations (her first M.A. was in Sociology, focus in Applied Research Methodologies).
Bonniejean also believes in giving back to the community. You can often find her working with various groups, both locally and globally. She believes very strongly that society is interconnected and evolves with regard to that connection. In that light she created her blog—Social Evolution Reborn—where she, along with other world citizens, express their beliefs about the world and the occurrences within it.
Most recently, she has expanded her array of research skills into tracing a client’s genealogical history. She is currently a member of two professional organizations and plans to become a certified genealogist within the year.
