Last week, I had a portrait session for a singer from Florida. See a sneak peek below.
Back in the day… ok, it was not that long ago – just after my undergraduate experience – but back then, I wanted to “do hair” as my profession. Perhaps I was motivated to do so after creating a retailing plan for an upscale salon and spa in the Atlanta area in a Marketing class, or perhaps it was because I loved creating exotic hairstyles for myself and my friends. It could have even been because I decided to start growing my relaxer out, and I really had to “do” my hair on a regular basis. Whatever the case, I wanted to pursue a cosmetology degree, so I started researching hair schools in the Atlanta area. When I saw Empire Beauty School’s $18,000 tuition, I started re-evaluating my new career aspirations, especially since I had student loans of about that much that I needed to pay off. Needless to say, I never did move in the direction of hair school, but recently I have been blessed with opportunities to work with hair stylists, like the one I photographed in Delaware last week.
