Small Business Spotlight with April

Tell me about yourself…I am a Freelance published Photographer, and I am happily married with 3 children. I went into business for myself back in 2009. I always loved anything that had to do with photos, whether it was scrapbooking, creating slideshow montages and editing. I started researching photography and taught myself and I am still learning the craft as we speak, I just let God guide me! I have been able to work with numerous Designer’s, makeup Artist’s, hairstylist, radio personalities, local music Artist etc. I have been published in several different publications and also was lead Photographer for 2 Breast Cancer Exposed calendars that went international. Most recently my family and I moved from California to Georgia and we love it.

Tasheena showed up to my workshop and breezed through like a breath of fresh air! Wow she put the cherry on top of an already awesome morning.

She kept our attention every minute she was there and left us with knowledge and motivation. We were in GO mode when she left. Exciting, informative, awesome!
I would have her back again and again. Peace and Blessings.
