    •  Don’t be afraid to photograph or paint something out of your comfort zone  Try something new and break the rules. Art has no rules to  That you can take a seductive photograph with out showing everything.  Push the limit’s  Do what you love and know. Don’t do what other people tell you.
    •  One of my favorite pictures of Lillian happens to be one of her. She took this photo of herself and I just love how happy she is doing, doing what she loves to do. She is a stunning woman who loves taking photo’s and creating them her own way. She take’s each Photo and create it the way she likes it. She plays around to make it 100% her own. Each photo she takes may be so simply but I just love how strong the black and white photo’s pop out.
