Hi, my name is Courtney Zepeda-Hawkes. I am a make-up artist/hairstylist for photography. Over the past few years, I decided to try my hand at photography. I've always been an avid enthusiast and own way more cameras than the average citizen. I decided I wanted to bring my visions to fruition, from there this ongoing journey began.
Plenty of photographers have nifty gadgets, lights and assistants. I'm not one of those photographers. I like to keep things simple. Usually, it's just me, my camera and a reflector...occasionally a flash. I think the fact that I am still learning drives me to create the best photos I can. I want my subjects to look their VERY best...that is my ultimate goal.
I have been so lucky to work with such warm and kind people. Some models have been so patient, letting me drag them all over and place them in a wide variety of unusual settings. I'd like to thank everyone for sharing themselves with me and letting me capture that little piece of them.
I am fascinated with the beauty in nature and the little things that someone else may not give a second glance.
