"Nikeisah of is doing some amazing and much needed important work. She provides healthy vegan food for Strippers, late night in #PDX. I got to eat some of the food she provides and it’s bomb. She saw a need and is now filling it. Support Black Womxn owned businesses. Check out all what @meals4heels has been up to and also order some food!!"

  • April + Kelsey were wed at SF City Hall on the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots + the start of Pride weekend. It was an honor to witness their love and commitment while acknowledging the fight for equality past, present, and future. Watching these two light up around each other & their people was magical, as was the sun setting on the city as we ended the day on the water. Magic. ✨ More on the blog, link in bio 💕 Shot for @wildinlovephoto

  • New set of photos are almost done! 
Here’s a little sneak peek of what’s to come (and yes, it is another golden hour/sunset shoot because it’s summer and it’s just what you do during summer 🤷🏻‍♀️😂)

  • My intern had his last day on Friday and he sent me a thank you email with his favorite quotes from me during his internship. My favorite one was "don't half ass anything, whole-ass everything"

I know we've all heard that one before, but it was a good reminder to me that: --
1. I love staying limited to my small creative business owner clients. I had a great closing consultation last night with a really talented HMUA and she loves her new contract. Not because I listened to her needs and added measures specific to her business, but also because I know her clients, I know the industry, we cater to the same people. With my legal expertise and personal knowledge of what she is dealing with, I'm able to add in more safeguards that she was unaware of. And at the end of the day, isn't that what you hire a pro for? -
Contract drafting is immersive. I have to know what you don't know and a big part of that comes from talking directly to you, not a representative of your industry. Every business is built differently and your contract needs to reflect your business. This is why I don't sell master templates-- that would only benefit me. -
That said, I'm thankful that I have the choice to work with my narrow niche of badass👏 boss 👏 babes 👏 who create beautiful things. 📸🎥💄💐🖥 (And give them whole-ass legal protection 👊) -
And -
2. Maybe I should swear less around the law school interns. 
More employment info coming next.

  • I love shooting weddings because of all of the emotions of the day! At EVERY wedding I laugh, I cry, I may even stress a little but I’m always happy I had an opportunity to be a fly on the wall during people’s most magical moments!

  • Crack a smile 
it’s a while 
till the miles set in -
Hyper fluid 
with no hyper drive 
like a grin 
I’m stretched bi-partisan 
no polar 
My empathy 
is what keeps me 
within 
Held close

  • World Photography Day: 📸❤️ where do I start photography has helped me with my depression, has pushed me as an artist. Has helped me meet so so so so many wonderful, beautiful people. Has helped me capture life moments in peoples lives, and capture some of my most favorite musical artists. Helped me to be able to teach black and brown youth photography. Has brought so many amazing BIPOC into my life and I’m forever grateful. 
I truly believe it’s my gift to give to the world, nothing brings more joy to my heart, then creating a beautiful image for someone that, they love, and feel seen. .
I also hope to inspire others,
especially Womxn to get out and shoot. I am self taught, I still makes mistakes and I’m still always learning, that’s something I love about photography though you can always learn something.
.
Sometimes I want to quit I’m learning that’s when its time to take a break and step away. Lately I’ve been re inspired by my move. I see the growth in my shots and it makes me proud. Can’t wait to see where my photography path takes me next .
I encourage you, to keep shooting, keep going, keep documenting your community and culture. Give back to your community through photography,
Stay Humble, but always know your WORTH!
