Money Smart Legal

To be more money smart. To sacrifice and save for bigger and greater things in the long run, as opposed to many smaller and insignificant things in the short term.


Also to have a contract in place from day dot and understand the terms. To actually seek a legal professional to have them draw it up and go through it with you so it represents what you want it to, and not some person put together and slapped on the internet for free. it will pay off in the long run!

Work Hard Get out there

Networkhustlework hard. The younger me should’ve been more open to meeting and greeting other photographers, asking for help, and making connections. I was too shy to make that move, and when I finally did, it was the best decision ever!


“Show up every day”. That’s my idea of hustle. Make yourself known. Speak about your work and your passion. Be open. lastly, you will never be “good enough”. The day you think you got it, you stop improving. It’s a lifelong journey. One hell of a ride, just jump on board and work hard…

Invest Believe in yourself

Don’t be afraid to invest in education and essential services, your growth and development. Try to dig deep and find out what sort of things represent the person you really are so it can organically shine through your work.
