We had the good fortune of connecting with Nylea Jones and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nylea, how has your background shaped the person you are today?
Originally born in Redding, California and later moving too a small town named Fairfield, really shaped me into the person I am today. At an early age I was exposed to many different genres of music which made a huge impact on how I handle my business. My mother never had a limit on what we could listen to, from country and pop, to hip hop and reggae, there was nothing we couldn’t jam along to. I learned that there is no limit to what I can do as long as I put my mind to it. This gave me the confidence to participate in talent shows and join clubs like Multimedia Academy, yearbook, and photography. Being exposed to these things made it easier for me to relate with others and grow myself as an individual. Though some would say Fairfield isn’t The Bay Area, with its diversity and opportunities, I was able to experience different races and cultures. This allowed me to absorb the many different facets of cultures and apply it to my work. The Bay Area is full of inclusive opportunities which enhance my creative space. Even at a young age I was able to express myself openly and explore much of what my city had to offer. With so much freedom early on, it gave me the opportunity to be independent and self sufficient within my work. This allowed me take on new risks and explore new experiences in life, which influenced my move to Georgia.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?

Providing outstanding service and having an extremely satisfied customer makes me feel like a proud business owner. Getting NyleaMonet Productions to where is today took the skills gained from previous occupations. Each skill that I have obtained is being put to use in the many aspects of the business. From people skills, to problem solving and marketing, I utilize each of these in order to push my business forward. In the beginning, it was difficult trying to find a balance with managing and building a business while trying to work for another. But by taking a leap of faith on what was important to me, I was able to learn flexibility, and understand the value of my time. As NyleaMonet Productions continues to grow over time, I can say I’m learning each day that you run your own race. Meaning, regardless of how quickly people gain their success they are not in the same race as you, so take your time and focus on your finish line. What the world should know about me and NyleaMonet Productions is that we are one and the same. NyleaMonet Productions is a reflection of how I go about my daily life: Confidence, Knowledge, and Passion. Im confident that your experience will be a great one. I am knowledgeable within my live of work. Lastly, I will put the passion into a session that will make it seem like you’re at home.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I have to say, living in Georgia after living in California, it has been an experience trying to find different food options and things to do. But, during my time here, I have found a few of my personal favorites. First off, I would probably take them to grab a bite to eat at places like Woody’s Famous Cheesesteaks, Mr. Everything Cafe, $3 Cafe. If my girls are in town id take them to Atlantis for some drinks and then head over to Impulse to sing and dance our hearts out at karaoke.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My creative skills developed continuously with the help from others. My mother has been a large portion of the reason why I strive for success. Without her allowing me the freedom to express myself, my creativity would’ve been stifled. Also, Katie Palacio and Joe Summers were two colleagues of mine that inspired and encouraged me into my photography career. Without their push for the best, I wouldn’t be able to call myself a photographer today.
