HELPING YOU MAKE YOUR CLIENTS LOOK THEIR BEST IN EACH IMAGE CAPTURED...
K. Marie and Denise met via an online Facebook group for black, female photographers in 2016. Once finally connecting in person, their friendship and biz bestie relationship was solidified. Helping one another through the ups and downs of running their own business was just one aspect of why they connected so well.
In 2018, K. Marie came to Denise with the idea of putting together a workshop for fellow photographers on how to properly capture and edit their black and brown clientele in natural light. Both ladies had been approached over the years about how well lit their clients are in photographs and they realized there was a true need for other photographers to learn this skill. Melanin + Light was formed as a workshop, but has now grown to include merchandise as well as a social media presence via Instagram.
While both women enjoy capturing clients under their own respective brands, Denise Benson Photography and K. Marie LLC, they enjoy coming together to educate others on how to make their clients look their best in each image they capture.
