Stevie Simon, 38 - Enchanted Memories Photography
OWNER + PHOTO GURU
WHY I GOT INTO THE BIZ / WHAT INSPIRES ME:
I've always had an entrepreneurial spirit, and the last 4 years of my life have forced me into a more creative work situation. I was in an abusive relationship and was forced to leave undetected with my then baby daughter. In the last 3 years we have stayed in over 7 homes and countless hotels. I needed a way to make money because I had a baby to care for but I was unable to work in a traditional way with such an unsteady life.
I enrolled back into college and started my associates in Arts, thankfully my college has provided online courses for me and I am able to complete my courses from any time zone. I was unable to complete the Arts program from a distance but I am now in the final semester of my Associates in General Studies. Even with this degree I was able to have access to many amazing professors and mentors who guided me in business and my photography passion.
As my college graduation comes close, I knew this is what I want to do. I love being behind a camera lens. My daughter always asks when I pull the camera up to my face, "what do you see?" and my dream is to show the world what I see. Beauty, positive energy, joy and love.
