DA: Tell us a little bit about yourself!

JL: I am in love with savoring this life's most beautiful blessing: relationships. To me the most precious moments are the ones that happen naturally, organically. When you reflect back on your favorite memories, they are about emotions experienced with loved ones. Those are the moments that captivate me.

DA: What has been your most memorable image and why?

JL: That is an impossible question for me to answer. There are so many memories attached to my images that I could never choose just one.

DA: If you could tell photographers that are just starting out one thing you wish you had known before starting a business, what would it be and why?

JL: Avoid going with the flow. Don't make decisions based on what others around you are doing. That means in how you price yourself, how you spend your money, the types of things you shoot, even how you shoot them. Figure out who you are as a photographer and business person and then weigh all of your decisions against that. It will save you countless hours, dollars and mistakes!

DA: Where do you find inspiration?

JL: Mostly nature. Light, Water, Wind, Motion. Combine those with genuine organic emotion and I could get lost forever.

DA: If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?

JL: Italy, the coast. The food, the sea, the culture. It's truly magical and I have never experienced anything like it.

DA: What are you most grateful for? JL: Grace

Given that Charleston won the 2016  “World’s Best City” award by Travel & Leisure, after being a top city for the past four years, there’s plenty to see and do and see as a guest in my own city!

There are the obvious benefits to being your own boss. You control your own schedule. You decide what direction you want your business to go in. You deal with your clients directly. The business is 100% YOU. Then there are the not so obvious obstacles to being your own boss. You control your own schedule. You decide what direction you want your business to go in.
