My Story…

Most of my creative life I have constantly created products and services and thought that Wow this is great, but I never had a clear vision on who would this be good for … Oh yes, your family and friends are your 1st go to .. and they think everything you create is great and yes… you are on your way to the next million dollar idea… and next thing you know you are stockpiling product and you have no definite person to buy this stuff. In my early days, I use to craft up and sew a lot of products I did many trade shows and presented my items… sometimes success more times not so successful… Things were slow folks would pass by and even tell you how nice it is… , but no purchase so back home again with all the stuff you came with. Sooo it brings me to Target… Yes, what you do is great Yes what you do is awesome… That product will be great to have for the right person… So it’s up to you to do the research.. find out who is your Target Audience… Who could use your product and or service… What problem are you solving and who is it that has the product… So its time to go to work… Find out who ‘s buying what your selling

So the question remains:

Who are you talking to?

My Truth … My Success…..

Reflections of Success on my journey in Photography…. DSC_4579

Shiny Pretty Success Business 

Dreams of Success using the natural gifts that we possess and learning things along the way.

I never looked at myself as successful. Although I’ve been running around with my camera for years and at one point I was capturing so many special events I was like … I am the women I’m running this event scene in Atlanta

I’m the go to event photographer and I’m working with so many event planners and what makes it even better is that I’m a Certified event planner too!

That makes my job even better. Not only do I capture great images to tell the story of the event, but I pay attention to details and I’m building everyone’s portfolio!

Yay me!!!

Well well…. it wasn’t until I attended a photography workshop and I straight came out of my bubble…. I thought everyone in attendance were new to this game of photography , but when I start seeing all the photo gear and seeing photos taken by my fellow photographer I suddenly realize… Oh you are not who you think you are for sure.

I became intimated and now I didn’t want to show my work due to being called out by rookie errors and not knowing the proper way to balance light for the photos.

Well I continued into my dream world of being the go to social event photographer and I was determine to polish up my skills

So again I would look at all these magazine worthy photos and great shots with beautiful lighting with hopes that one day I will be that successful photographer

I had hopes to work with some of the finest vendors in Atlanta!

Then one day after going through some images from an event I realize I worked along side of a vendors that is in the who’s who of events around Atlanta and that wow… You really are successful.

uncertain of what that really meant for me in the beginning but through this journey I realize you have captured amazing images you work with amazing vendors and your images have been used in magazines, blogs book covers flyers and so much more. So success is all in what it is meant to you personally and goals that you set out to achieve…

So re design success on what that means to you and you will be and Already Are successful!16992096_10212767696651131_1147083055395616839_o

It’s a great day to be alive.
