When you meet Cheryl you’ll immediately notice she loves having her hand in many different projects. In 1999, after moving to Austin, she became Austin’s first fashion reporter for News 8 Austin. After she left News 8 she launched her online fashion site Fashionably Austin where she writes and photographs events and from the end of the runway in Austin, Paris and at New York Fashion Week.
Her biggest risk was when she left corporate America and launched her media buying and production company Bemis Digital Media in 2011. What was intended to be a temporary fix until a full-time job came along ended up being the perfect fit for her entrepreneurial personality.
Photography has always been a large part of Cheryl’s creative side. Rolling film and spending time in her high school darkroom processing prints sparked a real love for photography and she eventually took her still photo talents to video. Cheryl enjoys creating memorable stories for businesses in a testimonial, informative short content or business reel formats. She has also produced and shot many of her client’s thirty-second television commercials that currently air in the Austin market. One of her healthcare videos was featured on People.com.
Cheryl is also a Certified Google Street View photographer and added the photo service to BDM in 2014 and continues to shoot the interior platform.
Cheryl is married and has two grown children and a stepdaughter. She enjoys traveling, baking her favorite gluten-free recipes and her Papillion Cooper is always close by when editing her video and photos.
