I am very excited to announce that Michael and I have launched our photography business: BlueJay Photography! The response has been a huge success! We already have 3 bookings lined up and my modeling agency Ford is on board with us doing a fashion/beauty test! I can’t wait to pick a model to work with, I have the perfect story imagined. My dream is coming to life and that’s an amazing feeling.
Here are a few of my favorite shots from our first two shoots. Both of these family’s were incredible to work with, their hearts came right through the lense. An average of 160 images per family picked, custom processed, retouched by me. I’ve been very busy…and LOVING every bit of it. There’s no better feeling than enjoying your passion and being able to bring joy to others with that passion.
HOW WE WORK TOGETHER
Michael and I both shoot during a photo session, we’re a great team and know when to pass the camera. I’m the creative director, I just see it all in my head. Being so close to my husband, I express how the shot needs to be approached and cropped and he gets it right away. He often say’s, “Jahaila tells me what to shoot and I just shoot it”, but it takes talent to get that shot and he’s got it. I love working with Michael, teaming up together on a creative process has to been amazing for our relationship. It’s fun for us and I think it shows. Plus the families have fun because we’re having fun. It comes together beautifully and doesn’t feel like work, instead we’re all just having a good time.
