Entrepreneur, public speaker, and motivational coach, Samantha Skelly, approached me seeking promotional photography. She needed marketing material for the launch of her brainchild – Hungry for Happiness. This included website, social media, and advertising assets.
Consequently, after a couple meetings, we quickly developed the driving theme of the photography. Rising above a fog. Rising above fear, uncertainty, and stagnation. Becoming a force. A phoenix who continually rises up no matter what brings her down.
We needed a few key ingredients to hit our marks! Firstly, the photography for Hungry for Happiness must be felt. Secondly, harmoniously combining peace, power, and most importantly love. Finally, the title, influenced by Dr. Maya Angelou, “…and I Rise” just kept appearing in my head. So, that was that.
