The Why

I know what it feels like to need support as a business owner who happens to be a woman and a WOC woman at that. I know what it feels like to no longer want to play it safe and be the go-to expert but not know how to obtain brand authority. I know what it feels like to just be outright overwhelmed as an entrepreneur. I would not want any woman or any person to have to navigate the waters of becoming a stand out business without support. 

If I have the ability to help, I am all in because I want to see women Business owners win!

A little about my story

Hi, I’m Shané (pronounced shuh-nay).

I know what it feels like to be “brand invisibile” as a business owner who happens to be a Woman and a Woman of Color (WOC) at that. In Imiivo Photo Studio, in addition to photography, I primarily work with women entrepreneurs with On-Camera Video Coaching and with our signature program, the Magnetic Brand Program, to empower them to USE their voice and visibility to increase their revenue. Hello! 

I’ve been creating with a camera for over 15 years. I have written, produced, directed, shot, edited and exhibited my fine-art photography, video and film media projects in galleries and art spaces across the nation, including a documentary that aired on PBS. In my early career, I worked in the film and television industry, including places like DreamWorks. I also served as a professor teaching photography, film and television production courses. Oh, and I went to school a lot, by choice (hello inner nerd). 

This has all led me to having a great understanding of what is appealing and resonating to audiences as it pertains to visuals and messaging.

In order for your business to be successful you have to elevate your personal brand and use video to connect, sell and scale.

But that’s not the only fuel I got!

What fuels me to do what I do is the urgency of celebrating now. Celebrating one’s voice and visibility. Especially as a woman entrepreneur of Color. 

For anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one knows the significance and pricelessness of each moment we have. 


Let me give you a little backstory about what fuels me to do what I do. 

First, I took for granted that my mother would always be present to witness the many milestones I had yet to reach. One of the most defining moments of my life so far, outside of having my son, is when my mother passed away. You see, my mother was my world. My constant. My biggest cheerleader, my biggest advocate and the first person to tell me when I needed lipstick. After she passed away, I found myself wishing I had more portraits of the woman who was always behind the camera.

And it motivates me to celebrate life in the present because as the saying goes, tomorrow is not guaranteed. 

Second, I know what it feels like to need support as a new business owner who happens to be a Woman and a WOC woman at that. I know what it feels like to be scared but also no longer wanting to play it safe. I know what it feels like to need visibility for your business but not know how or just be outright overwhelmed. I would not want any woman or any person to have to navigate the waters of gaining brand visibility without support. If I have the ability to help, I am all in because I want to see people and Women-owned and WOC small businesses like me win!

​​Overall, my journey so far is a marvelous one filled with unbelievable peaks and valleys. I love doing what I do and on top of all that, my little one brings my heart immense and immeasurable joy. 

Celebrate your voice & visibility!
