How did you get started in the business? Who helped/guided/mentored you?
“I got started in business 8 years ago. My daughter was just a baby… I started photographing her, and started receiving requests from friends, etc. My business grew rapidly, and I opened a studio within a year and a half… My business grew much faster than I could keep up with, and soon I had 5 employees and a full shooting schedule…”
“I look to interior design for most of my visual inspiration, as well as antiquing, boutiques, and eclectic stores…for photographers that I do admire: Tim Walker, August Bradley. If you’re thinking about coming to another After Dark Event, remember you would have better access to more mentors the more you attend… more is just that — more.If you’ve never been to After Dark Before, Come with an open mind and drink a lot of coffee! ‘I’ve seen many troubles in my time, only half of which ever came true ~ Mark Twain. The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief ~ William Shakespeare ‘ “
