My custom made Camera Bag!!

Yay! It finally came! My custom made camera bag from Brooke Van Gory
Brooke is an incredible seamstress/designer you owns and operates her shop Brook Van Gory. She specializes in custom diaper bags, purses, wet bags, and now....Custom Camera Bags!!!
I found Brooke through Amber of RockerByeBaby. Brooke makes all the custom diaper bags in Amber's shop. So after seeing one of Amber's diaper bags in person...I decided I needed one! I contacted Brooke and asked her if she would be interested in making me a camera bag....she was more than willing! I chose the colors and fabric, and wha-la... a gorgeous and functional camera bag. I used this bag during 2 of my shoots this week and I loved's so much better than lugging around the big bulky backpack that I was using before. Now I just keep my camera, 2 lenses, my hood, camera cards, and an extra battery in it....just so I have what's most important on me at all times :)
If your interested in ordering this amazing camera bag, or designing your very own...please contact Brooke at or check out her shop on etsy. She's super easy to work with and can give you exactly what you are looking for!
P.S. enter Beki Dawn Photography in the notes to seller on etsy, or just let her know you heard about her through me, and receive an additional 10% off your order!!

I chose the fabric for my bag at my local fabric store...let her know the name of it and got exactly what I wanted. This fabric is also available on any of her bags now, so you can pick up one of your own.... or choose another fabric that fits your style :)
Super roomy inside

Plastic composite zippers so that your equipment is safe from getting scrathed

Inside zipper pocket...I keep used camera cards there to make sure they don't get lost!!

I keep my cell in the outside pocket so that I can check the time quickly, and my business cards go on the other side :)


  1. that really is a fantastic bag and I know Brooke makes the sturdiest bags ever so you will get to enjoy that sucker for a long time too!

  2. What a brilliant bag, Becki!
    I now need me one! I also want something where I can thrown my camera & a pair of lenses for going out and shooting but not bulky and where I can also keep NON-photo stuff... in short, I need me one of these!
