I've learned that to be an Indigenous photographer - someone who truly wants to showcase the visual and cultural diversity of my peoples - that I can't limit myself by having only one genre that I shoot.
So that means I photograph births, engagements, families, maternity, elders, and family gatherings. I'm here for grads and weddings, headshots for my inspiring entrepreneurial cousins, and lifestyle branding shots for the up and comers making their mark. I've done rez shoots and urban shoots and everything in between.
It makes for an interesting life.
