…I have had the pleasure of working with. I’ve been working towards this for a VERY long time so to be able to work with celebrities now I feel very blessed because it was all a dream! I’ve been dreaming about it since I was a little girl. I was actually initially inspired by Singer & Actress, Aaliyah. I wanted to meet her more than anything and I told myself I would through photography and she would be in my studio as I shot her for an international magazine. Although I won’t get that chance, I am still able to work with other celebrities that I am just as grateful.
R&B Singer & Songwriter, Tink
This woman is extremely beautiful and just the same on the inside! When DZMG featured her at our most recent concert, our show sold out. Her energy through the room was crazy and amazing to watch. To see everyone that came out and singing her songs word for word was amazing! As soon as she walked out on stage the crowd went crazy and it was even crazier to be a part of that and to capture it. I had the opportunity to speak with her and her manager about some potential opportunities to work together in the future and even if it never happens, I’m still just as excited about capturing behind the scenes footage of this show in Atlanta!
R&B Singer & Songwriter J. Holiday
When I got the phone call about shooting J. Holiday, I couldn’t believe it! I was at lunch when I got the call, and when I heard the name. I had to ask again, “Who?” I couldn’t believe my ears and without thinking twice, I accepted! I’d be crazy not to! It’s moments like these that I’ve been dreaming about and finally it was here! Shooting an artist and celebrity for their album cover! I’ve grown up listening to J. Holiday! Some of my favorite songs were, “Suffocate,” “Bed,” and his feature on Fat Joe’s “I Won’t Tell.” So when I found out that I had been brought on to shoot his new album cover I couldn’t believe it and I STILL can’t believe it. I thought I would be nervous but when he showed up he was so chill and down to earth and patient. During the shoot, he sang along with his music as it played in the background and the man can really sing! Beautiful voice and so talented! We had 3 different looks for that day and it was easily one of the smoothest photoshoots I’ve ever had.
Comedian and Actor, Kountry Wayne
In 2016 I had the opportunity to tour Georgia and capture behind the scenes of Kountry Wayne. I was hired by his management at the time and it was one of my first big gigs. It was a lot of work and traveling and especially difficult because I was also taking online classes at the time but it was so worth it! Despite what you may see on social media and television, Kountry Wayne is hilarious on standup and his very humble and grounded. I learned a lot from watching him hustle and I am proud to be a part of his journey to stardom.
