We had the good fortune of connecting with Jazmine Powers and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jazmine, is there a quote or affirmation that’s meaningful to you?
My mantra for the past couple of years has been “Less Force, More Flow”. I love it because it reminds me to never force anything and let things happen as organically and naturally as possible. I think it’s human of us to want things a certain way so bad that we betray ourselves and try to force it whether it be relationships, job situations, friendships, etc.. I learned that the best things happen naturally especially when it comes to relationships.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m a photographer who loves to capture memories of people that they will cherish a lifetime. This was the main reason I picked up a camera. Creating memories for people is truly a joy. Seeing them smile or connect with each other through my lens is my “Why”. It makes me happy and brings a ton of fulfillment. This definitely hasn’t been an easy journey. I’ve learned a lot about photography by trial and error and of course “Youtube University” lol. One main lesson I’ve learned along the way is to stay true to myself and my “Why”. Sometimes we can want to venture out into other areas of photography which cool but staying true to my “Why” which is creating memories for other people that they’ll cherish is the most important thing form. My photography business is called JLenay Photography. You can follow it on instagram @jlenayphotography. You can also check out my website at www.jlenayphotography.com
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to shoutout my life coach, my friend, my brother Jay R Strowbridge. I’ve learned so much from you the past year. You inspire me daily just by witnessing your success, your grind with helping kids and other people, and definitely by staying true to who you are. Daily you show up for yourself and you are actually creating your own destiny. Shoutout to you for living a purposeful driven life by helping so many people grow in so many ways! I appreciate you.
