I'm first and foremost a Christian.
I'm also a self-taught Photographer, Videographer & Graphic Designer.
I enjoy working with people to bring their dreams and visions to life.
I love to have options and the ability to customize things to compliment my life.
I want to give this to my Clients.
I give you options, and I give you the chance to have a custom experience.
Everything I make is tailored to you and your taste, style, personality, etc.
frequently asked questions
Is all of that included in the price?
I do not and will not spring surprise fees on you.
I will not offer you a service and leave something out of your product because I want more money.
If something may involve extra fees (like shipping costs) I will let you know in advance.
And as always, I have payment options for everything.
When will we get the pictures back?
For Photoshoots, my goal is to get your pictures back to you in 2 weeks.
Depending on business, it can take up to 3 weeks.
Also if you have purchased a bundle package, this can effect the time as well because I am working on a video for you as well. That can effect the delivery time as well.
For large events and weddings, I estimate 1 month waiting time.
Total amount of pictures and amount of work that needs to be done to the pictures, always effects the timeline.
In the end, I strive to get your pictures to you as quickly as possible.
If you like to read, here's my full story
I was born and raised in the middle of no-where Alabama. Our town is so small, it sits at the very bottom of Chilton County. It was like we barely made it in. That's how small the place we lived at was.
I was home schooled since I was 7 years old. I was being bullied all the time in school. So my Mother thought it best to home school me. By far the BEST decision she could have made. It allowed me to pursue my desires and discover myself as an individual and as an artist. Because of all the free time I had, I started to teach myself how to do certain things.
When I started making graphics
In August of 2005, I joined a Hilary Duff fan forum, where I discovered Graphic Design. I knew instantly I wanted to be able to create graphics too. In October of that year, I began to teach myself. I started in Paint. (Yes, the generic little program that came on Windows XP) People gave me a hard time and told me I should quit, but that was only fueling the fire. At age 13, I set out to prove them wrong. I listened to the others that would encourage me to keep practicing. Finally, in January of 2006, I got my first program. To get the practice in that I needed, I started to take requests from various people. Suddenly, I was making graphics for people who were located all across the globe. And began to really move forward in my skills and understanding of how to make graphics. In 2007, I graduated to Photoshop. And have worked with it ever since.
When I started learning Photography
The Christmas of 2006, I received my first digital camera. This made me instantly look at the world in a completely new way. I was taking pictures of EVERYTHING. It was love at first shutter sound. So at age 14, I was teaching myself Photography.
With now making graphics every day, and constantly taking pictures, I knew I wanted somewhere to showcase my work. So I thought to myself, "I'll make a website. Yeah! But wait... how do I make a website?" So yes, you guessed it.
When I started learning how to code and design websites
In 2007, at the age of 15, I started to teach myself how to make websites. During this time, I was trying to find my "artist name".
I couldn't just be "Corinne". I needed a stage name. I tried "Queen of Weirdos", "Screaming Yellow" and "Runaway Rebel". (Which I quite fancy that last one.) But none of them really connected with me.
Then one day, I was instant messaging my friend Sebastian, who suggested I call myself "Lady Music" because I loved music so much. I instantly connected with the name and the idea of this being my brand. I felt quite stupid that I hadn't thought of it myself, but I took it and ran with it. And thus, Ladymusicc was born.
The styling of the name Ladymusicc
When I started to create a website under the new name, I came to find out that someone was already using it. I looked up their website and there was no content on it whatsoever. I felt gypped. So I decided to add an extra "C" at the end of my name. Causing it to look like this: Ladymusicc.
Of course, that wasn't the plan at first. But once seeing it like that, I knew it would stay that way and it has ever since.
Finding a home
My first site (as Ladymusicc) was hosted on freewebs.com (now known as Webs.com) Then in 2008, it was hosted under a friend of mine's site. "Dakota-Sunshine.net". But I had to move domains (in 2009 or 2010) when she decided to let her site go. I moved on to a site called "pixel-fx.org" and that was my home until March of 2011. After that last move, I knew I needed to buy my own domain. Not abide by anyone's rules or be dependent on someone else to host my site. And thus, Ladymusicc.com was created, on April 6th, 2011. I never thought I'd have my own "dot com". But finally, I did. It was a big deal to me. A dream come true.
When I started learning Videography
Now, let's backtrack to 2008. I started to make short little videos with my brothers digital camera. I was not yet editing them. But I was definitely lighting a fire. Sometime in 2009 - 2010 was when I finally started editing. And there it was. The interest to make videos continued to grow. By 2012, I was actively doing all four of the things I had grown to love. I was 20 years old.
Throughout the years, I've also taught myself how to film and edit videos. I've made many products for many people. Including: Videos for graduations, weddings, bridal showers, websites, sing-a-long videos, special announcements, and promo videos.
I've done photoshoots and made countless graphics for advertising purposes. I've made book, CD & DVD covers, T-shirt designs for different events/groups. I've had my graphics featured in the news paper and on a billboard. And my biggest accomplishment thus far, was seeing an album cover design I made for a client, featured on a show, during an interview. THAT was exciting.
I continue to work hard and I desire to keep improving and learning.
They say "reach for the moon and you'll land among the stars" which is exactly what I'm trying to do. I'm dreaming big and working hard. What else can you do? Work hard, Dream big, enjoy the journey.
