it's been a crazy year!
I had no idea what 2020 was going to have in store but I knew I was ready to stop doing so much of what I didn’t like and more of what I loved. After my 33rd birthday last August I started to do the scary, hard things. Confront patterns I wanted to break, have tough conversations with loved ones, use my voice and ultimately find a way to do what I loved. You see for years I’d been claiming I was a hobbyist photographer. I thought Milwaukee was over saturated and I wasn’t good enough. I decided I owed it to myself to take the steps anyways. I can’t tell you the exact day GM.CREATIVE began I just know nothing’s been the same since.
has brought GM.CREATIVE some beautiful unions, bold boss women, and super special children and families. Every time I’ve wanted to build on a skill, an opportunity presented itself to do just that. Every time I had a creative idea I wanted to try, I found a community of friends and photographers alike rooting for me and willing to help me succeed. And when I messed up, because honey I have… and a lot, I built a resilience I never knew I had. The failures have helped me be better for both my clients and myself. I recognize that I’m not in this alone and I’m so thankful for that. I’m honored to capture your graduations, weddings, families and accomplishments. If 2020 has taught us anything, its that time is precious and we all deserve to feel and share life’s joys.
It's been such a blessing to amplify black, brown and LGBTQ love and families
When clients are friends and friends become clients ❤️
I started with my kid and those are my favorite subjects to shoot
I’m not done yet though.
I’m preparing more collaborations with other black and LGBTQ businesses. I’m creating an email list to keep my supportive community informed of pro tips and all that is happening with GM.CREATIVE and a possible book (shhhh still working on that). I will also continue to educate myself as a photographer and business owner. I
t’s all about celebrating the lives of those around me in the best way possible.
Thank you for rocking with me this long.
I am beyond grateful
