As a photographer, I see great things in people they may not be aware of, or perhaps they know they have something special, but may not believe it to be true. With great joy, it is my mission to bring their inner beauty and greatness to the surface. When people share who they are: their life, loves, beliefs, insecurities, what they like or don’t like, what makes them smile, and so forth, I believe this is what makes a connection between the photographer and subject. The more honest we are-the image becomes unforgettable. I would like to present this stunning and soulful portrait of Brenda Slimgoody Joe: not only is she a talented make-up artist, she is a fun, strong, and sensitive human being, This is my gift to her as a reminder to remember self-love and a reflection of how beautiful she is. Enjoy!
