Today we’d like to introduce you to Sobe Stanford.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I discovered my passion for photography while studying Architecture & interior design at ASU. I took a photography class as a prerequisite and I was sold! I knew right away that photography was my path! However; It took me a few years to find a specialty in this field.
I’ve always been attracted to the process of creating a product related to Art. The first few years in business, I enjoyed creating portraits of people in general. It wasn’t until I photographed a High School Senior that I realized I enjoyed posing women, styling them, and showing them their true beauty.
Since I can remember, I felt the need for helping women, empowering them in some way and I can now do this through photography.
Has it been a smooth road?
Sustaining a business can be challenging. In my case balancing life and work has been a struggle. Entrepreneurship is not easy, you have to wear different hats to handle some of the workloads you can’t afford to outsource.
You will always encounter struggles, but staying optimistic plays a huge role in overcoming them!
We’d love to hear more about your business.
The purpose of my business is to empower women through photography. I love to see how women unfold and become confident in front of my camera as they slowly start to embrace their identity.
My goal was to create a cozy space where women can relax, forget about life problems, and feel incredibly beautiful as I get to capture their essence. My sessions include professional hair and makeup, and wardrobe consultation. Hors d’oeuvres are also offered during their photo session to complete the experience.
As a company, I am most proud of the compliments my clients get when their friends see their final images.
I want to remind women that they are beautiful regardless of their age, weight, or skin color. I take the time to listen to what they want and guide them through the entire photoshoot process, this is what sets me apart from others!
