Fashion is Life
F/W 2017 NYFW Men Designer: Christopher Lowman
My passion will take me to places I can't even imagine. Believe in yourself!!!
Don't Give Up!!

The journey may seem long, but the outcome is always GREATER. When I started my photography journey, I expected opportunities to be handed to me. NOT!! I faced a great deal of adversity, which led me to become a stronger, yet resilent black woman. The countless "NO" discouraged me to the point where I almost walked away from photography completely. In addition, I didn't receive the support, and was told that I wasn't good enough. One day, I had to block out all the negativity and focus on what God wanted for my life. I rebranded S LYNN FOTO, left my entire life in Florida, and relocated to New York City to pursue fashion photography. The journey is still long, but I believe in myself and talent. Moreover, I had to realize that this journey is less about me, but more about the people I want to inspire. I say this to you, continue to chase your dreams, and never let a setback pull you away from your passion. Also, never compare your story with someone else, and embrace the beauty that is inside of you. I trust God's plan for my life and you should too. Keep pushing!
