Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I hire you?
As an African-American woman with eczema that led to discoloration of my skin, I found it difficult to find a photographer (especially one of color) who knew how to work with my various shades and make me appear beautiful. That is why I became a photographer to help those who may share this insecurity.
