2009

This was a definite year of change and meeting allot of great people who will change the whole dynamic of my budding photography business. As I continue to shoot many portrait session and special event, One event in particular change the whole course of Kustom Kreation Photography. I was asked by my Aunt to co-host my cousin baby shower, I was giving free rain over decorating and all sorts of ideas, It was a blast to come up with allot of creative items. Following the baby shower, I was then approach by one of the attendees to find out how can they get a custom party package like the one they saw at the baby shower, at that point that is when I begin to add custom decorations to my business. Now I was able to do your party decorations and capture images for your event! What a fantastic combination. This year was my introduction to social media, I joined the oh so popular Facebook and now I was tweeting it up with folks worldwide! Following allot of folks that did photography , planned events and did allot of party crafts.  I was consumed with so much information on all the things that I loved! Twitter being information 24/7 this was amazing, I then begin to have my twitter buddies and that land me into a turning point of the expansion of my event photography service. Brandi Starr of Cassius Blue Consulting reached out to me to do a giveback birthday celebration to underprivileged children. This event was a huge success and brought smiles to all the children they were in attendance,  I was so thankful to be apart. I was then  hired out by her event planning company to be the photographer for her up and coming events for her clients, I was overwhelmed with this wonderful opportunity.  The latter part of the year I was hired by a client to capture her 40th birthday celebration, that is when another expansion came to me, the catering for the event was Aj’s Catering. The presentation and taste of food was incredible. The meeting between he and I was a relationship that  is cherished to this day! Image

2007-

After starting my journey fall of 2006 as 2007 approached I was clear on my way to shooting anywhere from Fashion and Glamour, Portrait Weddings and Special events. I begin to shoot my then seven year old son and t-ball team. Taking actions photos of the team as well as individual posed pictures. During this year I became pregnant with my second child. I was not going to allow my pregnancy to be a factor in my budding photography business. More then ever I was pursuing my passion. Capturing my own maternity pictures. Taking on many special events. For the 1st time I was recommended to do special event photography for a celebrity event.  I was scarred out of my wits seeing that I was a budding new artist. Nervous and scarred I took on this project and with the feedback I received from my client was one of the biggest lessons to date moving forward capturing  special events. This was a real breakout year… I was shooting any and everything…
