Hey There! I’m Sharayah
I will never forget the first time I took a photograph. I was four years old, sitting outside on a warm summer day with my beautiful mother. She had one of those plastic point and shoot film cameras you could only find in the 90's. This piece of equipment was large in my tiny hands. From the moment my mother passed it over to me, reminding me to be gentle with it, I knew that I would one day become a professional photographer.
I hope you know I'm kidding about knowing. No way in my wildest dreams could I have imaged where I would be at today. I took the camera from my mother's hand, told her to smile, and shot the most beautiful photo of her.
Weeks later, when we received the film back, the only problem, which is a minor detail when it comes to photography, was.... well... I cut her head off. But non the less, I was proud of my work.
I currently work as the Head Photographer for Scentsy Inc. My work has been published and distributed over 13 countries. I have photographed in 6 countries while on business with them.
I graduated from Boise State University with my Creative Writing BFA, a minor in Communication, and a certificate in Film Studies. I am a self taught photographer and videographer. I spend almost all of my time behind a camera or photoshop.
Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
