Your DIVINE AWAKENING AWAITS

Remind Yourself of Who You Are.  

You are the greatest thing you have ever created, give her the honor that she deserves. I create space for you to let go of what is going on in the outside world and breath. It is in this sacred space where you are the center of attention and encouraged to shine. Tap into the depths of your beauty through fine art photography.

YOU ARE THE PINNACLE OF YOUR OWN CREATIONS

NO MORE HIDING

It is time to do it for you, not for your family or for your job, but for you. Part of the act of self-care is doing things that enhance your personal view of yourself and increase your overall confidence. When your confidence is high, you in turn decrease the amount of negative self-talk that can sometimes creep into your thoughts uninvited. 

I invite you to experience the art of making portraits as a part of your overall healing and self-care journey. Healing energy permeates throughout my entire process from makeup application, to styling curated and designed just for you, and ultimately the final product of your image as a work of art. With all that you've done and all that you are, you most definitely deserve!

HOW ITWorks

HOW IT
Works

WHAT IS Your POWER WORD?

The breakout project, Profile Noire, went on solo museum exhibit in 2019. This iconic project features 100 women of color sitting in their seat of power. Due to an overwhelming response, I am honored to continue to offer Profile Noire as a session to my clients. Join me in the evolution of this important body of work designed to change the visual representation of women of color and to challenge participants to look deep within themselves.

EVERY ANGLE LOOKS GOOD ON YOU

A project boasting over 300 images of women of color, you can join the movement. I have formulated this photography session to be one that can only be found here. All the way from the detail of the experience, the detail of the posing, and the detail of the post production artistry. These works of art will be a beautiful addition to your collection and act as a source of strength you can draw from on the daily walk of honoring who you are.

Frequently ASKED QUESTIONS

We will take time to go through your specific questions during our initial consultation. In the meantime, I've created a list of questions I get the most.

  • Fine art photography is a genre of photography that focuses on creating aesthetically pleasing and visually impactful images. It often involves incorporating creative and conceptual elements into the photographs.

  • Take time to prepare your mind space for a truly beautiful creative experience. You will want to make sure that you ask me any question that you may have prior to our session to alleviate any pre-session jitters you may feel. Book your hair and nail appointments. Set aside your wardrobe and accessories one day in advance.  Review prep emails that will be set out leading up to your session.

  • Makeup is included in all of my sessions. Professional hairstyling is not. Please come with your hair at a good starting point and based on the creative design of your session, I will make adjustments as needed.

  • The duration of a fine art photography session can vary based on various factors, such as the complexity of the concept, outfit changes, and the overall scope of the project. Typically, a session can last anywhere between one to 3 hours.

  • I ask that only those participating in the session be in attendance in the studio.  This time is dedicated and curated just for you and sometimes having other people around can interfere with the creative flow and your overall comfort level. If you require someone to join you, just make sure the individual understands their role and won't interfere with the our workflow.

  • After the session, I will review and edit the photographs to select the images that meet my artistic vision and style. You can let me know if you'd like any specific editing needs ot if you have any additional requests.

  • The post-processing timeline varies but I will typically schedule your Ordering Session to present final images 10-14 days after our session.

01

INQUIRE

When you submit your inquiry, you will be asked a few questions and then directed to schedule a consultation.  The consultation is key in order for us to determine if creating together is in alignment for each of us.  If the answer is yes, we will move to the next step of booking your session.

02

PLAN

Once you confirm your collection, select a date, sign the contract, and pay the 25% reservation fee, you will be locked in. At this time I will begin curating your session details, which may involve purchasing fabrics for garments I will design for you and brainstorming styling ideas. *Process will look different for Standard Head Shot and Corporate Head Shot sessions.

03

SESSION

Upon arrival to my studio (our safe space) you will be greeted and given a tour of the studio. From there my Makeup artist will work with you and I on creating the perfect look. Once makeup is completed we will begin our creative time together. The style of session you selected will determine how many outfit changes you may have, which influences the length of your session.
