Every life is much more than just a moment in time. We are all living beautiful stories told by the things we do, the people we surround ourselves with, and the choices we make for ourselves. Dream2Be is not under the limitations of just taking pretty pictures. Life is beautiful. We just happen to be gifted to tell it as we see it by using what God has given us. We are the storytellers of who you are today. Your story matters. With every client, we learn a new story and share it as we see it. Stories made from memories, experiences, and dreams. From the celebrations of life, it is the vision of all that lies between that makes you... You.
We are Mike and Chantel Ferraro. High School sweethearts with 3 amazing kids that call us mom and dad.
After 25 years, we know...life, kids, but more than anything...We know LOVE.

"I can't say enough great things about my daughter's experience working with Chantel. She's professional and has a knack for helping a 14 year old girl get over her stage fright. Resulting in some wonderful artistry. I highly recommend Chantel if you're looking for not the average photo shoot. You won't regret it!"
"Chantel gets to know who she is going to photograph before she starts. This allows her to bring out the subjects personality in the photos she so artistically takes. I highly recommend Chantel!"
