My first client was in 2008. A vocalist (and friend) name Adoree. She was doing a photoshoot for a new album and her manager, Ethan (another friend, he was the photographer for my wedding) asked me to be the stylist. He said I had a great style and he thought I'd do a great job.
Naturally, I said yes because they're my peoples. But on the real, I didn't know EXACTLY what a stylist needed to do for a shoot. So I got thrown into the mix and I LOVED every minute of it.
It was creative, collaborative, challenging, but completed rewarding to see the final images and all of our brainstorming and visioning come to reality.
This was when I realized - I could do this. I want to be a stylist.
