Don’t be with the band.. be the band⚡️ Let’s have a little chat! As you all know I have been super vocal on my platform about being yourself. So it’s not new news but sometimes we just need a reminder.
It makes me so sad to see so many people try to fit in or trying to be someone else. We are all different and that needs to be embraced! Individuality is something we should hold on to.
Why be a copy of someone when you can just be your original self. I’m not talking about changing yourself to be a better person. (That is always good) but what I’m talking about is looking at another person, comparing yourself and then trying to be like that person. Or seeing the “cool crowd” and wanting to fit that “cool crowd” standard. I know it can be hard with social media...comparing or wanting to fit in to a type but honestly individuality is everything. So don’t be hard on yourself. You be you honey and let yourself shine🌟
3 months ago I packed up my things at Yale and moved across the country to LA.
My parents thought I was throwing my life and career away, and I got messages from people saying that I was making the biggest mistake of my life.
For those of you that don't know me, I studied music for over a decade to become a professional flutist. I was good at it, but the thought of playing in an orchestra for the rest of my life sounded terrible.
When I discovered fashion and portrait photography a year and a half ago, I fell in love with it. I was apprehensive about moving to New Haven, because it meant that I wouldn't be able to do fashion photography. After several hard months and a few nervous breakdowns (lol) I made the decision to move back to LA and pursue photography full time. It's only been a few months, but I know I made the right decision! I've had the opportunity to work with amazing models, makeup artists, and brands like @expeditionsubsahara.
I knew moving here, failure wasn't an option. I'm still in the beginning stages of building my business, but I'm so excited for what's next.
If you got this far, thanks for reading! And thank you for your support. I'm now booking for September, so if you or someone you know is in need of a photographer, please email me! I'd especially love to work with more beauty and clothing brands. ✨
