I love taking pictures of people and making art. It makes me feel so wonderful and great! I love when people look at themselves in my photos and feel beautiful that’s all I ever want is to make people love themselves.
Our readers would love to get to know you more DeCarann . Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I’m twenty-seven and a stay at home mother who is also in school.
DeCarann , what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
I had this amazing teacher who wanted me to try photography since she had seen the pictures I took. She took me under her wing and helped me anyway that I could. I feel lost when I’m not out taking pictures now.
Who is your inspiration in life DeCarann ? How do you keep inspired?
My children is always keeping me inspired. They make me want to do better and make something of myself.
We all make mistakes DeCarann , we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Photographer , you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
One of my clients showed up late and we couldn’t take pictures in the spot we were going to and she got very angry at me. I wish I would have put my foot down and explain to her why it was wrong of her to do what she did. I just took her pictures and left.
DeCarann ,when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
I have a second person with me at all times to make sure that everyone is getting the attention they deserve and not feeling left out.
Please tell us DeCarann , about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
I had a party to go to and take pics and the person who was supposed to come with me didn’t show. I asked my sister to come in and help me. I made sure I wrote up and exact schedule and worked all night to get the pictures that the group wanted on time and in a timely fashion.
DeCarann , please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I have a friend who has a lot of ideas and always wants to do what she wants. I ha d to try and convince her that they way I wanted to shoot her was the best and it would look amazing. So I made a letter up of everything I wanted to do for her and convince her to do it. It turned out amazing.
DeCarann please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share to everyone. What is it and why?
My proudest moment was doing my sister engagement photos. She wanted so much from me and it was my first time doing photos of that kind. I pulled it all in time together for her engagement party.
DeCarann , please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I was able to get in the water and take amazing water pictures. It was difficult at first because the water was so cold and the girl was shivering the whole time but we made it right for her and it worked out.
