Q: Do you do styled shoots?
I sure do! Some of my favorite business relationships have grown out of styled shoots. I'm always down to offer my semi-custom suites and I design new work for up to 5 styled shoots a year. Let's talk!
One thing I'm committing to as a business owner is solely participating in styled shoots that represent inclusivity and diversity. Styled shoots that include diverse models, photographers, planners, florists, ceremonies, etc. If you're creating an inclusive styled shoot. send me an email to see if I'd be a good fit for your vision.
Not sure whether or not your shoot is inclusive? Check these definitions below:
the practice or policy of including people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized, such as those who have physical or mental disabilities and members of minority groups. Workplace Inclusivity. An inclusive workplace values and provides equal opportunity to all employees regardless of differences (e.g., ability, age, ethnic background, gender, religion, sexual orientation, etc) to achieve their maximum potential at work without discrimination. source
The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences. These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies. It is the exploration of these differences in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment. It is about understanding each other and moving beyond simple tolerance to embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions of diversity contained within each individual. source
