Who is Fritzmean? I’ve been asked before why I chose to name my photography business ‘Fritzmean.’ Since my name is Vanessa, why not name it ‘Vanessa Photography’ Well, I am Fritzmine. I was named after my parents: Fritz and Yasmine. Since I am their first child, my father insisted that I be named after him which is interesting because they’ve always called me by my middle name ‘Vanessa.’ My love for photography came from my father and because no one has ever pronounced ‘Fritzmine’ correctly, I decided to change it a bit so that it would never be mispronounced again: Fritzmean. Clever huh?
