Art is where my heart lives. It is what flows through my veins and gives purpose to the art I capture. I was a beauty model for over 13 years, but even from the other side of the camera I knew that things could be done differently. I know how a beautiful image from a photo shoot can be nice, but that it doesn’t always embody why you are who you are. Inserting yourself and personality into a photograph is what makes it stand the test of time and become an heirloom and not just another pretty picture. When I started India Jackson Artistry ten years ago, I vowed to do things differently and showcase what makes my clients unique.
I’m fiery, strong, humorous, intelligent…and to some intimidating. I believe in showcasing your authentic and bold self unapologetically. We are all a mix of feminine, masculine, sensitivity, ambition, seduction, elegance…these all combine to create your power. Combining fun and inspiration with your individual spirit is how we break the mold! I want to take the journey with you to infuse your shots with all that is you in all of its glory. You can and should thrive as exactly who you are!
My biggest point of difference is me. The energy I bring is what helps me to see and capture you and your brand as expressive and authentic. As a Bachelor's degree in Art + Design recipient from Towson University and as a consumer I understand what connects me to a brand. This perspective and my audacity to bring emotions to life visually is what I keep in mind as I work alongside you to capture your values through the camera. The stories, the personalities, the relationships…this is what gets you seen. This is what makes them love your brand.
I enjoy traveling across America for my photography clients. I currently live in the virginia beach area and am originally from Washington, DC. When I am not doing photography & makeup, I enjoy lifting weights in the gym and compete in natural bodybuilding competitions as an OCB bikini competitor on a plant based diet.
