Throwback

Photographer: Mariana Quevedo Photography/ Makeup: Rahela Williams

The beginning of this journey is sort of blurry for me. I remember my senior year of high school, my artsy friends would ask to take photos of me for their classes. I never thought much of it, but it was always fun to have new photos to post on Instagram and Facebook. For me it was never anything more than that. However, as time went on I became more and more interested in fashion. Everything about the fashion industry intrigued me: the different styles that I previously had no clue existed, photo shoots, fashion shows. It was all so new and exciting.

I was working two jobs at the time, so it was nice to finally have some sort of an outlet. I started looking for more people to work with and connected with different artists: makeup, hair, designers, photographers and started planning different photo shoots. What started out as a time filler became a passion, a way to express myself and let the artist in me out.

Three years later, here I am. All of the friendships I’ve made and projects I’ve been a part of have turned a hobby into much more.
