For me, I ask myself, ‘What else can you do? Did you give it your absolute best? How are you going to improve your work and not just do the same thing’? Why would anyone say this and feel okay with being mediocre?
In December of 2016, I had put on my travel schedule to make my way back to Kansas City, MO to do photo shoots. The WBFF wasn’t doing shows there any longer, however I reached out to Johanna via social media if she’d like to shoot together on my visit there. Sure enough on 29 July 2017, we made magic!!! I coordinated with my Muse Tessi Conquest to do Johanna’s makeup for this shoot. This time, I knew that I had progressed a little more in my style, and I wanted Johanna to be showcased as amazing as she is.
As I’m shooting with Johanna, I noticed something. Something very unique about her than I had only seen once before with another client. I noticed during a quick 5 minute break that you can get better shots of Johanna if you just let her be herself and not pose her. Like, just let her be natural and you just have to quickly capture the moments as she moves around.
Here’s my interview that tells a bit of how it all began with me, and what I’ve been doing. I’m truly honored that I got to have this opportunity and I truly hope that it inspires and motivates someone else out there who wants to be more and take the, “leap” into something bigger and better in life. If you’re a photographer, this will tell you a little about the, “struggle” that happens.Read More
“Everybody wants to be famous, but nobody wants to do the work. I live by that. You grind hard so you can play hard. At the end of the day, you put all the work in, and eventually it'll pay off. It could be in a year, it could be in 30 years. Eventually, your hard work will pay off.” - Kevin HartRead More
“My first training session was intimidating. I didn’t want to be “that girl” who was not in prime shape, but I knew I had a ways to go to be stage ready. I pushed myself so hard on my first legs training day, it was hard to walk the rest of the week! I still train by separating my muscle groups into different days, and I tailor my cardio sessions to fit in with my day rather than forming my day around my cardio sessions. I have a lot of flexibility in my workouts now, and I really try to listen to my body.”
