I am so incredibly proud to share with you my team, and tell you a little bit more about each of them. Some of them have been with me for years and a few are brand new. It's an absolute honor and privilege to work with so many talented people that can carry out the vision I wanted with any piece of content. The amount of work that goes into any single photo on Instagram or any single blog post is not just me. It's a group of us who commandeer the concept, style, photograph, edit, write and then publish. So much goes into every single piece of content, and as I've expanded the team, the content has gotten better and better. Thank you to the team!
Each and every single one is extremely talented and I am so thankful to them for their incredible work. Let's jump into their backgrounds and passions so you can learn more!

Makiah Fox has always been a lover of the arts, drawing and painting from the time she was a small child. As she grew older, she fell in love with movies and the power of storytelling. She often re-enacted her favorite cartoons with her friends, recorded their voices on a cassette player and created her own sound effects. It was a great way to spend afternoons! In college, she majored in film production, to learn about professional filmmaking, and pursue that art form. While she wouldn't call anything that she made in college "art", she did have the great opportunity of learning how to use visual storytelling to communicate with the audience, how to work with light, and how to edit. Over the years, she has refined her skills as a cinematographer, editor, and photographer to help her clients communicate with their target audience through professional, creative, uniquely branded media (such as videos, gifs, and photos). She joined the team in October of 2018.
